“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!!”

Criminal defense might be top priority for suspended officer

On Behalf of | Oct 6, 2016 | Criminal Defense |

A Georgia police officer is already out on bond after his recent arrest. Accused of becoming violent with a teenage student at an area high school, he is facing several criminal charges, including cruelty to children and battery. He is currently on administrative leave from his position, which will likely give him ample time to focus on his criminal defense strategies.

The exact details of the alleged attack were not immediately made clear, but the incident apparently occurred on school grounds. The teenage student complained to school officials that he or she had been physically harmed by the officer. Some of their family members were apparently present when the incident took place and reaffirmed the claim, stating that the teen still had physical evidence from the attack.

The school then took the complaint to the police department. Both a criminal investigation and an administrative investigation have since been launched against the officer, and he is currently not being paid while he is on leave. While the police department released a statement regarding the matter, the officer accused of committing the assault has apparently not said anything regarding the matter since he posted bond.

Physical harm involving a child is an understandably serious matter, as most parents and the community at large typically go to great lengths to protect minors. However, Georgia defendants cannot be determined to be guilty simply based on the age of a victim who was allegedly involved in a crime. As with any criminal charges, defendants have the right to create a strong criminal defense in order to fight the charges against them until the very end of criminal court proceedings, all while maintaining their innocence.
