“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.”

“Matt was great. The day I called him he jumped right in and a week later charges were dropped! He’s my guy here on out. Not to mention he saved me 3k from the first firm I called.”

“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.”

Understanding Charges From DeKalb Traffic Court

Have you received a citation for a DeKalb County misdemeanor theft by shoplifting, minor in possession of alcohol, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, a traffic misdemeanor or any county ordinance violation? If so, you likely have a court date set in the Traffic Division of the State Court of DeKalb County.

DeKalb Traffic Court is housed in a small overcrowded building near the DeKalb County Jail off of Memorial Drive in Decatur, Georgia at 3630 Camp Circle. Even to seasoned attorneys, the DeKalb Traffic Court can be a hectic, frustrating and confusing place to try to resolve a traffic or criminal matter.

The attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch routinely appear in DeKalb Traffic Court and have a proven track record of success in securing dismissals, reductions in charges, reductions in fines and obtaining diversion alternatives for our clients. The best news about this Division of DeKalb State Court is that if you were cited for a non-traffic misdemeanor, because you were not arrested, there is no impact on your criminal history. If you were cited for a traffic violation, we can work to negotiate an outcome that does not add points to your driver’s history which often results in suspensions and increased auto insurance expense.

Should I Hire A Lawyer For Traffic Court?

Often people wonder whether or not to hire an attorney for a traffic offense or low-level misdemeanor. The answer is a resounding “yes”! We always counsel people that they can choose how they want to spend their money. You will either spend it on an attorney or you’ll spend it on a fine that is higher than it should be and on increased auto insurance rates resulting from points on your license. These expenses can be avoided if you hire skilled representation to negotiate on your behalf. The attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch know how to maneuver through DeKalb County Traffic Court to get you the best result possible.

Did you know that if you pay a fine on a misdemeanor possession of marijuana citation in DeKalb County Traffic Court that your Georgia Driver’s License MAY be suspended? At the very least, if you pay a citation on a misdemeanor marijuana case then you have a conviction for a drug offense and that is not good. There are options for resolving your marijuana case, other than pleading guilty, paying a fine, being on probation and having your Driver’s License suspended. The attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch will counsel you and work with you to achieve the best result possible for your unique situation.
