“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.”

Georgia police officer avoids criminal charges for fatal incident

| Mar 6, 2015 | Criminal Defense |

Simply being arrested on the suspicion of having committing a crime does not necessarily mean that a person will end up facing criminal charges. Although an individual may be accused of committing a crime, unless he or she is actually indicted on those charges there will be no legal action. A Georgia police officer was recently cleared following a grand jury’s decision to not indict him on criminal charges.

In Sept. 2014, police officers apprehended a man who was suspected of stealing a vehicle and being involved in other criminal acts. According to authorities, the man struggled against officers during his arrest and pat down. Finally, he was placed in the rear seat of a patrol vehicle. 

While left alone in the car, the man allegedly managed to move his handcuffed arms from behind his back to the front of his person. Police say he then kicked out a window and exited the vehicle. Producing a weapon that had not been discovered during the pat down, the suspect is said to have raised the weapon as though ready to shoot approaching officers. One officer fired in response to the threat, fatally injuring the man. 

The officer’s decision to take action was not without controversy in Georgia, and, after the incident, he faced the possibility of being charged in the suspect’s death. Ultimately, the grand jury reviewed all related evidence and came to the conclusion that the officer should not be charged. However, it is possible that the officer was already preparing to face criminal charges as he awaited the grand jury’s final decision. Even if an individual has not been formally indicted on charges, it may be appropriate to review related evidence alongside his or her counsel to ensure a legal foundation that is as secure and prepared as possible should a jury decide that an indictment is appropriate.
