“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

Former Atlanta NBA Star in jail for alleged vehicular homicide

On Behalf of | Jun 14, 2013 | Criminal Defense |

Even famous athletes are not immune to health issues, particularly after years of extremely vigorous physical activity. Unfortunately, one former All-star’s health problems may have cost a woman her life and injured her husband.

An accident occurred recently where former NBA All-Star Daron Blaylock allegedly blacked out, crossed the median and hit another car. The accident resulted in the death of a 43-year-old woman and the injuries of her husband. Blaylock was rendered unconscious and then hospitalized following the incident.

Once Baylock recovered, he was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide. In addition, he also faces other related allegations. It was purported that he was wanted for failing to appear in court for a prior DUI charge. Blaylock has a history of seizures and it is unclear if that was the cause of him blacking out right before the recent fatal automobile accident occurred.

When someone is facing serious criminal charges, particularly those involving homicide, it is best to seek out assistance immediately to put forth the best possible criminal defense. Sometimes, the best way to alleviate the long-term consequences of a criminal conviction is to use to discuss a plea negotiation. This is particularly true when the defendant has extenuating circumstances that may explain why the incident occurred.

If that is the case, usually some of the more serious charges will be dropped or reduced and it is likely the defendant will have penalties that are less severe. Though a defendant may not always prefer to go through with a plea negotiation, it sometimes is the most likely way to get the best possible outcome. In addition, it can be more time and cost effective for the defendant.

Dealing with criminal allegations is often a difficult process for anyone to try and handle alone. This is why help should typically be sought out immediately.
