“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”

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.”

Georgia pharmacy robbery just one of a startling trend

| Feb 17, 2014 | Theft & Property Crimes |

After pill mills began appearing in Georgia, police started to crack down on the illegal trade. While this has managed to temper the flow of illegal prescriptions written by doctors, there has been an increase in robberies. Some companies in particular are more prone to fall victim to a robbery by an addict or dealer in search of prescription pills.

Pill mills, which are set up as pain clinics and used to distribute mostly prescription painkillers to both drug users and dealers, increased in popularity in Georgia after surrounding states implemented stricter pain clinic laws. The regulations have since been tightened in Georgia, too, and now only physicians can actually own a pain clinic. With the connection to illegal pill mills severed, pharmacy robberies such as this are rising up at an alarming rate.

Recently, a Georgia CVS pharmacy was robbed by a man in search of prescription drugs. He managed to make off with the prescription painkillers Percocet and Lortab. On the way out, he also snatched prescription bags from some of the pharmacy customers before he left. Police believe that this wasn’t his first time, and they are seeking him in connection with another pharmacy robbery.

Drug addiction can be a serious and difficult struggle for some people. When access to pill mills that were previously accessible is severed, some may turn to desperate measures such as pharmacy robberies in order to obtain illegal prescriptions. While theft is a serious charge that can sometimes yield long jail time and hefty fines, Georgia residents accused of robbery still have options to fight their charges. Reviewing one’s case and applicable state and federal laws can give a defendant the confidence that they may need to form the most comprehensive defense team possible.
