“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”

“I found Andy Cohen via a google search and after our initial phone conversation I was happy to hire him. The circumstances that drove me to solicit an attorney were sensitive to say the least. He was kind, sympathetic and detailed which I appreciated very much. He kept me well informed throughout the hearing process and Andy always made sure to be available if I had any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Andy and his team to help you through what is likely a difficult process.”

“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!!”

“Wow, what an unexpected experience. We have all heard the horror stories and the jokes about lawyers. Well, I've been fortunate not to have had reason to use a lawyer... until now. Or at least that is what I thought. I don't want to get into the details, but I had sent an inquiry into the firm through their website and Andy reached out to me. He was patient, professional and funny. He spent a good 15 to 20 minutes on the phone with me. Explained to me in detail what I could expect. And recommended that I don't actually need a lawyer for what I have to do. I can't express my sincere gratitude enough. In the event I ever do need a lawyer, I know exactly who I'm calling.”

DeKalb County police officer charged with child molestation

| Oct 25, 2013 | Sex Crimes |

A veteran DeKalb County police officer has been charged with child molestation after police said he showed pornography to a 13-year-old girl and tried to undress her. The 49-year-old man resigned his position with the police department after 18 years on the job. Police said he admitted to the charges, but the man’s attorney disputed that, saying the man has not confessed.

The incident allegedly took place at the man’s home in September 2012. According to the charges, the man allowed the girl to watch pornography with him and then kissed her neck, touched and tried to undress her. The girl reported the incident to her mother about a year later, and was later interviewed by police. The man’s attorney disputes the girl’s account and says that the man’s daughter was present at the time of the alleged incident and that this makes it unlikely that he would have had sexual contact with the girl.

Georgia can be very serious about allegations of sex crimes, but perhaps never more so than when the allegations concern child sexual abuse. Those accused of these crimes suffer immediate damage to their personal and professional life. If convicted, they may face long prison sentences and large fines. Even after release, they may be listed on a sex offender registry for decades to come, further damaging their chances of finding quality employment and housing so that they can rebuild their lives.

The public has little sympathy for those accused of sex crimes against children. Still, those accused of these crimes are entitled to a defense. It’s crucial that Georgia residents accused of these crimes build the strongest defense they can, and start working on it as soon as possible.
