“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!!”

1 in Georgia facing criminal charges after allegations of robbery

On Behalf of | May 29, 2017 | Theft & Property Crimes |

The potential consequences for criminal charges generally depend on the severity of the alleged crime. Those involving violent acts, such as armed robbery, are serious in nature and can have a significant impact on an accused individual should a conviction be obtained. A man in Georgia is currently facing similar charges after allegedly robbing a Goodwill store.

Just after 3 p.m. police claimed to have received a call about a suspicious individual who had recently entered a store and approached a cashier. Reportedly, the man waited until the drawer was open and allegedly sprayed the cashier in the face and stole the contents of the drawer. Authorities assert that they were in the process of surrounding the building at the time and took the man into custody shortly after the alleged incident.

He is now facing charges for armed robbery and aggravated assault, both of which carry severe penalties if convicted. They also claim that a similar robbery took place at another location around a week earlier, and suspect that he may have been involved. Although pepper spray was allegedly used in that instance as well, no other indication was listed that would tie the man to the previous incident.

When facing potentially devastating consequences that could follow allegations of armed robbery, an individual in Georgia might find it beneficial to seek legal counsel for the road ahead. A defense attorney can evaluate the evidence and charges against a client and advice him or her on the best course of action to take. If a conviction cannot be avoided, an attorney can assist a client in pursuing a lesser sentence during court proceedings.
