“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!!”

Father, son’s criminal defense claims they didn’t commit crime

On Behalf of | Apr 30, 2014 | Criminal Defense |

A Georgia man claims that the only thing that he and his son are guilty of is trying to be helpful. Georgia police apparently say differently, as the two have been charged for transporting a deceased bear to another state. However, the two men may not have been the ones who actually transported the bear to another state, and their criminal defense seemed quick to point that out.

The two men do admit to baiting bears, but say that they’ve never actually killed one. In a similar fashion to fisherman who catch fish and then throw them back into the lake, the hunters’ dogs chased the bears into trees before being called off, allowing the bears to go on about their business. They even had an eager customer who seemed particularly excited about witnessing a treed bear. The customer was eventually left at the baiting area alone, which is when the trouble apparently began.

The customer called the hunter that he’d hired to help, and informed him that he’d shot and killed a bear. When the man and his son showed up, they say they helped haul the bear into their vehicle before they drove their customer and his bear back to where he was staying. They didn’t see the man again until they were facing charges in court.

In reality, the customer was an undercover police officer from a nearby state. The criminal defense for the Georgia father and son has questioned why the undercover cop was the one who both shot the bear and subsequently transported it to another state, yet they are the ones facing charges. Like any other accused individual, these two men have the right to vigorously fight the charges against them as they seek the most positive outcome possible.
