“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!!”

Man charged with burglary following Dekalb break-in

On Behalf of | Mar 22, 2018 | Theft & Property Crimes |

Anyone who has attempted to describe a person’s face after meeting him or her for the first time likely knows how difficult it is to provide an accurate description. When the describer is under stress and likely in a dark or poorly lit room, the accuracy of that description could be called into question. A man in Dekalb has been arrested and charged with burglary based on details created in a sketch of a suspect.

The incident that led to the man’s arrest happened in March. According to reports, a man cut the power to a woman’s house before entering it. She claims he began touching himself in the room she shared with her young son while she slept.

The woman says that her main concern was protecting her son so she grabbed a chair and started pushing the man out of the house. She reportedly provided details to a sketch artist, and a police officer claims she noticed similarities between the sketch and someone she had arrested previously. That person was taken into custody and now faces charges of violating the peeping Tom act and burglary.

The woman’s experience, if it occurred as described, was likely terrifying. However, since there was no power to the house, and likely no light, it may have been difficult to fully see the person in her home. It is unclear if there is any physical evidence that connects the man to the alleged Dekalb burglary. The defendant may choose to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help him examine the evidence in the case and formulate the most appropriate response to the charges he faces.
