“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 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 tax preparers face criminal charges for tax fraud

| May 14, 2014 | Criminal Defense |

Two women were recently arrested in connection with alleged tax fraud that apparently stemmed from a local tax office. The Georgia women were arrested on criminal charges of fraud and computer forgery for supposed tax-related crimes that may have dated back to 2011. Reportedly, one of the two appears to have been in trouble with the police before.

The women in question worked as tax preparers at a local office at the time that the fraud is alleged to have happened. Authorities say that the she and another woman created and submitted falsified W-2 forms and tax returns to the Georgia Department of Revenue in order to receive refunds. Refunds were issued to multiple personal and business accounts that were held in the name of the women.

Upon her arrest, one woman was charged with over 100 counts of tax fraud. A subsequent search of her house apparently revealed multiple firearms as well as drugs in one of the bedrooms. As she apparently has a previous felony conviction, she is not legally permitted to own firearms. She was additionally charged with drug possession for marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine.

The charges against both Georgia women appear to be quite detailed. Aside from the initial criminal charges, they each face varying counts of forgery, computer theft and attempting to commit a crime. As one of the two is a convicted felon, a subsection conviction has the potential to seriously alter the course of her future. She and her criminal defense will likely undertake a careful review of the charges she faces as her preliminary hearing approaches in order to make the most informed decision possible to fight for a favorable outcome.
