“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!!”

Apparent road rage leads to felony charges at elementary school

On Behalf of | Feb 3, 2015 | Felonies |

It’s understandable to feel more than a little miffed by a driver who cuts you off or who refuses to use a blinker when shifting lanes. A Georgia woman was recently accused of taking road rage a little too far after another motorist allegedly took her parking spot. Police were alerted to the situation, and the driver was arrested on felony charges for property damage. She was also accused of disrupting a public school.

The incident occurred while an elementary school was putting on a Christmas program. The owner of the vehicle that was supposedly vandalized claims that she was stuck behind another vehicle in the school’s parking lot. After over a minute passed without the vehicle in front of her moving, the woman drove around it and pulled into a parking spot.

After that, the woman reported that the driver of the immobile car exited the vehicle and accused her of stealing her parking spot. The woman did not move her car. At that point, the victim reported to police that the irate driver parked her vehicle in a nearby spot before allegedly returning to the initial parking spot and keying her vehicle.

Police were called to the scene, and the woman who supposedly scratched the other vehicle was taken into custody, although she posted bond later that same day. As the damage to the vehicle was assessed at more than $600, the accusations of property damage amount to felony charges. Defendants facing charges such as this in Georgia have more than one option for handling the accusations. For instance, some find that a plea deal can offer them the most favorable outcome possible, such as lessened charges and/or favorable consideration at sentencing. Others find fighting the charges to their fullest extent to be a more beneficial course of action.
