“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!!”

Government employees being investigated for alleged steroid use

On Behalf of | Jul 4, 2013 | Drug Charges |

 

Often, when one thinks of drug violations and illegal drugs, what comes to mind is marijuana, cocaine and other hardcore drugs. However, being accused of using or distributing prescription drugs, such as steroids, are still serious drug charges and still need a strong defense.

There are six government employees, five firefighters and one police officer, in Cobb County who are currently under investigation for steroid use and/or distribution. The charges stem from an accusation of a firefighter who was accused of being on steroids in 2010. There were more charges since then and now there are six employees involved, five of which either resigned or were on administrative leave, with one firefighter still active. While no charges have been filed yet, the investigations are still ongoing. It has been stated that there is no indication that the steroids were either used or distributed on government property or while those employees were on duty.

No matter what the drug charges are, whether drug use or drug distribution, a defense is still often required to avoid serious consequences for the individual accused. Once the accusation is made, help should be sought immediately, in order to reduce charges or even have some thrown out entirely. That way, any remaining can be dealt with properly and with the best defense possible. Sometimes, the use may not have been intentional or known by the user but that still must be proven. Even if the user knew, distribution may not have been intentional.

Drug charges can sometimes stem from situations most people would consider serious offenses. Still, no matter what the case, help should still be sought immediately to fight the charges.
