“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!!”

University of Georgia student faces felony charges

On Behalf of | Jul 21, 2014 | Felonies |

A college basketball player was cut from his team after drug-related allegations led to his arrest. Facing felony charges for possessing marijuana, the University of Georgia student has maintained his innocence while also apologizing for any negative attention that has been cast onto the school. For unknown reasons, he had apparently been suspended for multiple games during the previous year’s season.

At around 2 a.m., an officer approached the student’s vehicle to request that he move it out of a parking spot that had been designated for motorcycles only. Upon approaching the vehicle, the officer claimed that he smelled marijuana coming from some of the rolled down windows. When he tried to investigate a backpack that was in the man’s car, he was instructed that he was not authorized to search it.

The officer ultimately grabbed the backpack and, upon opening it, discovered roughly 18 grams of marijuana. He was arrested and, due to an allegedly aggressive crowd that gathered, was taken to an area county jail fairly quickly. However, he later posted $2,500 bond and was released.

The University of Georgia student and former basketball player claims that the marijuana wasn’t even his. He further claims that the individual who was actually in possession of the marijuana will be accompanying him to his first court appearance. Despite the serious nature of felony charges for drug crimes, this young man’s innocence and rights must continue to be protected as this case moves forward. Ultimately, the burden of proof does not lie upon him, but instead with the prosecution, who must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt each element of the crimes with which he has been charged.
