“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!!”

Traffic stop in Georgia gives rise to multiple drug charges

On Behalf of | Nov 27, 2015 | Drug Charges |

In August, a Georgia man was arrested after a traffic stop in Decatur. The police narcotics unit in DeKalb County allegedly found large amounts of ecstasy and Xanax pills along with several ounces of marijuana in his possession. According to the officers, the drugs were found sealed in envelopes that were already addressed to different people. Five days after his arrest on drug charges, the accused man was released on bond from the DeKalb County Jail.

On the same day as the traffic stop, the Northeast Georgia Regional Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at the accused man’s home in Athens. Drug agents claim to have seized oxycodone, Xanax and ecstasy pills, psilocybin mushrooms, cocaine and a substance suspected to be MDMA — an illegal hallucinogen and stimulant. Furthermore, agents say they found digital scales, a machine used to load capsules and cash to the value of $35,000.

A search warrant was apparently also obtained to be executed at various banks at which it was believed the accused man had accounts. At one bank, agents allegedly found cash in excess of $130,000. In addition to the charges of trafficking, possession and intent to distribute several illegal drugs in DeKalb County, similar charges are pending in Clarke County related to the searches conducted in Athens.

A complaint about forfeiture of assets and money seized from the accused man’s bank accounts and his homes was filed by the Western Judicial Circuit District Attorney. Also, the man’s bank accounts have been ordered frozen by a Clarke County Superior Court judge. The laws related to drug charges in Georgia are the same for everybody, but the application of the laws depend on the facts of each case. For this reason, having the support of an experienced criminal defense attorney is a wise choice. A lawyer with extensive experience in defending clients against drug charges can examine the facts and provide a determined defense in court.
