“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.”

University of Georgia professor facing prescription drug charges

| Apr 1, 2014 | Drug Charges |

Recently, a University of Georgia professor made what might be seen as an extracurricular request to a student who planned to visit another country during spring break. Supposedly, he requested that she purchase prescription medication and bring it back for him. He has since turned himself in to authorities and is facing drug charges.

Wellbutrin, a drug that is used quite often to treat depression, is at the center of this case. The University of Georgia professor apparently gave one of his students $120 cash so that she could buy the drug while on spring break south of the United States border. Worried that she may be penalized academically for refusing to purchase the medication, the student approached other faculty members who in turn reported the incident to the authorities.

Later on, university police conducted a search of his office and reportedly found multiple prescription drugs mixed together in a single bottle. After surrendering to the police, the professor was arrested and charged for attempting to have the student illegally purchase a prescription medication for him. The mixed prescription medications in his office also resulted in multiple charges for having his medication not stored within its original container.

While prescription drugs may generally be regarded as less dangerous than their street counterparts, the distribution and use of these medications can still cause harm when misused. In some instances, prescription medication that is mixed together in a bottle might result in drug charges. Despite this, this Georgia professor is presumed fully innocent of the pending charges unless and until proved otherwise in a court of law. He has the right to challenge the evidence that prosecutors seek to use in support of the accusations and to confront witnesses at trial. It is possible that his surrendering to authorities and otherwise clean record of accomplishment at the University of Georgia will be taken into account by the judge overseeing his case if prosecutors are ultimately able to meet the strict level of proof required of them by our criminal justice system.
