“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”

“I found Andy Cohen via a google search and after our initial phone conversation I was happy to hire him. The circumstances that drove me to solicit an attorney were sensitive to say the least. 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.”

“Seamless experience dealing with Andy and Jill. They are both very knowledgeable and will go to bat for you. I was referred to Cohen and Hirsch by a friend and will refer them to others myself. Truly great people who care and love what they do. One thing that stood out to me is that they will update you consistently without you having to reach out. I will continue to use them in the future and so should you.”

“If I could rate this law firm with more stars, I would. If you desire an excellent attorney that cares, has a great relationship with court system, communicates quickly, stays on top of your case and strives for the best outcome possible, then look no further than this law firm. Jill and Andy handled an extremely complicated case for my son with special needs and we received the outcome we desired. His case was dismissed and he can move now on with his life. I am very pleased and grateful to them for their efforts.”

“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.”

A domestic violence conviction may impact your career

On Behalf of | May 21, 2021 | Domestic Violence |

Domestic violence in Georgia can have serious implications for the future of your career. You might not be eligible for certain federal jobs depending on the crime you were convicted of. There are a few crimes on your record that can bar you from working at a federal agency for years to the rest of your life, and domestic violence is one of them.

How does a domestic violence charge impact your career options?

Many professions take the impact of a domestic violence conviction seriously. In some cases, you may have to revoke your professional license altogether. However, a hiring manager may hire you if you have someone to vouch for you. Otherwise, reapply for your license after a certain length of time has passed. Depending on where you live, you will have to fulfill certain requirements to prove that you have changed.

What do federal employment agencies consider?

One of the first things an employment agency of any kind will consider is your overall temperament and personality. This is especially true for getting hired at a federal employment agency. Another factor that federal agencies often consider is how the crime you were convicted of relates to the job you are trying to apply for. For example, if the job requires that you be around flammable materials, you may not get hired with a charge of arson on your record. Regardless of what type of federal job you are searching for, you cannot have any conflicts of interest.

What else can you do?

If you were convicted of domestic violence recently, the best thing you can do for yourself is likely to get training for a different yet related career. For example, if you have lost a license for working as a therapist, consider a career as a vet tech. This is because working as a therapist requires a great deal of empathy, and you can direct those same skills to working as a vet tech.

A criminal conviction can seriously affect your career prospects, so it’s best to avoid being convicted if at all possible. You may want to ask a defense attorney about your options for fighting a domestic violence charge.
