“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.”

Drug charges dropped after woman’s false arrest airs on TV

| Sep 3, 2015 | Drug Charges |

With the popularity of so-called real life law enforcement shows, some police officers have been accused of taking things too far. According to some, when a camera is present, many cops will go to great lengths to ensure an arrest. After being arrested on what she says were false drug charges, a woman in Georgia is only one of many voices speaking out against this practice.

Back in 2013, an episode of the popular TV show COPS depicted the woman being arrested for what appeared to be possession of cocaine. Video footage depicted the arresting officer making comments about the woman’s various tattoos, including a statement that he made about them being possible indicators of drug use. He then proceeded to issue a narcotics test and claimed that it was positive for cocaine. According to the episode, that was that, and she was taken into police custody.

The woman has a very different account of what happened, though. According to her, the first test was negative and showed that she had no drugs in her system. Apparently dissatisfied by this result, the officer performed a second test from the trunk of his car, which she claims was falsified. The second test created by the officer, not the first, is the one that made it onto TV.

She petitioned to have the drug charges dropped, claiming that the only person who could have possibly possessed drugs that night was the officer who apparently falsified the test. The charges were eventually dismissed when the Georgia Bureau of Investigation performed secondary testing and found that there were no drugs. While police do play an important role in keeping the local community safe, it is important to remember that they are not above the law. When falsely accused of committing a crime or arrested on false pretenses, defendants can petition to have the charges against them dropped.
