“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!!”

Felony charges filed against grandson of rapper, actor Ice-T

On Behalf of | Jun 23, 2015 | Felonies |

A grand jury indicted the grandson of 90s rapper turned TV star Ice-T on charges related to an accidental shooting death. He faces a total of five charges, including some felony charges. Although the young man is currently out on bail, he is due back in court soon.

Ice-T’s grandson shared an apartment in Georgia with one roommate, where police claim the incident occurred. According to the defendant, he was simply holding a handgun when it accidentally discharged. His roommate was hit in the chest with a bullet and subsequently transported to an area hospital for treatment, where he later died.

Georgia authorities claim that the handgun involved was stolen, although it is not clear if it is believed to have been in the possession of the now-charged young man or his roommate. The firearm did play a role in his charges though, contributing to one count for possessing a firearm during a felony. Additionally, he has also been charged with possessing marijuana and having the intent to distribute an illegal substance. These charges came after police say that he admitted to dealing marijuana.

Virtually any criminal charge related to someone’s death is no doubt devastating to both the defendant and those who knew the victim. However, convictions for felony charges can be just as life changing for those accused of committing them. Not only do the consequences of a conviction typically mean time will be spent behind bars, but, for many individuals, it is extremely difficult to later on succeed in the workforce or in educational settings. As such, defendants may want to confer with their counsel about which defense approach would be most appropriate for their charges and their individual situations before making any concrete decisions concerning their defense strategies.
