“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 mayor to face criminal charges for alleged tax evasion

| Jun 29, 2016 | Criminal Defense |

A Georgia mayor is on the line for allegedly evading taxes. Although no criminal charges have officially been filed, the district attorney has already announced his intention to charge the part-time mayor of a small town with tax evasion. However, while the mayor is accused of personal tax evasion that is often depicted in film and on TV, the accusations are also related to payroll taxes.

His part-time gig as the small town’s mayor is apparently supplemented by a personal business that he owns. It is unclear what sparked the original investigation into his personal and business-related taxes, but the results of that investigation are rather serious. Although the mayor withheld the proper amount of taxes from his employee’s paychecks, he may not have actually handed those taxes over to the state of Georgia.

In addition to the DA’s announcement regarding the soon-to-be-filed charges, the investigation is branching elsewhere. The town was recently asked to collect its financial records for city business and to hand all of that information over to the DA’s office for further review. There was no indication given as to why the town’s financial activity might be in question other than the alleged activity of its mayor.

The state of Georgia views the act of withholding payroll taxes but failing to pay them as a serious offense for a number of reasons. Not only is this considered a form of tax evasion, but it is also failing to pay another person’s taxes. Criminal charges such as this are often pursued aggressively, meaning that time is of the essence for most defendants, and no time is too early to begin considering different possible strategies for minimizing the impact of criminal allegations.
