“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!!”

Bond Hearings: How To Reduce Your Risk

While each criminal case has unique elements, the initial goal for all of our clients is similar. Whether it involves the accused or their family members, they want to know that when they need a bond set that we will work to get a bond hearing scheduled as quickly as possible. The initial stage of any criminal case is critical and a judge’s early determination on bond can have an effect on the ultimate resolution of your case.

Under Georgia law, courts are directed to consider four factors in determining if defendants in a criminal case meet the criteria to have a bond set on their criminal case:

  • The risk of fleeing
  • The risk of committing another felony
  • The risk of obstructing justice
  • Being a threat or danger to any person, the community or property

How Our Firm Can Help You With Bail/Bond Issues

At Cohen & Hirsch, we recognize that the burden of proof lies with us in showing that you do not pose a risk to anyone should you be released on bond. Attorneys Jill Polster, a former prosecutor, and Andy Cohen, a career criminal defense attorney, possess experience and knowledge of Georgia’s criminal justice system, specifically insight into bond hearings from both sides of the courtroom. We have helped people throughout DeKalb, Gwinnett, Fulton and Cobb counties.

Specific bonds include:

  • Own recognizance (OR)/signature bond (SOB)
  • Surety bond
  • Property bond
  • Cash bond

Options still exist if a judge denies bond at the first appearance hearing. The issue can be revisited at the preliminary hearing.

Even if you are under investigation for a crime, an arrest will still require representation at a bond hearing. Take action by contacting us, and we will be equally proactive in pursuing your release from custody.

Committed To Protecting Your Freedom

If you need representation at a bond hearing in Atlanta or throughout Fulton or Dekalb county, the attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch can help. Schedule your free initial consultation at Cohen & Hirsch by contacting our law office at 404-919-7096.
