“If you want someone who is going to get stuff done, I highly recommend Cohen and Hirsch. Not only did I beat my case, I even got my record cleaned.”

“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.”

What To Do If You Receive A Restraining Order

At the Atlanta law offices of Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers aggressively defend clients against restraining orders. We use every tool in our arsenal to help clients defeat criminal allegations so they can move forward with their lives.

Being accused of domestic violence, stalking or harassment can result in a restraining order, or protective order, being brought against you. A restraining order will have a major impact on your life.

Consequences Of Restraining Orders For Defendants

Individuals who have restraining orders issued against them will lose their ability to possess a gun, may lose custody or visitation rights with minor children, and face possible jail time. Because restraining orders are public record, it may be difficult to find a job or housing. Restraining orders also take a toll on personal and family relationships, and can destroy your reputation.

Once a restraining order has been issued against you, you are at the mercy of your accuser. At any time, he or she can call the police and falsely accuse you of violating the order, resulting in your immediate arrest.

At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys thoroughly investigate your accuser’s claims to uncover ulterior motives for his or her claim, undermine his or her credibility and poke holes in his or her story.

Temporary Restraining Orders: A One-Sided Story With Criminal Consequences

In Georgia, a person can get a temporary restraining order (TRO) against you without a hearing and without giving you a chance to tell your side of the story. This means you can be ordered out of your house and be required to cut all contact with your accuser based on his or her claims alone.

Within 30 days, a hearing will be held to determine whether the TRO will become more permanent, placing restrictions on you for up to one year. These hearings are akin to mini-trials. Your accuser may take the stand, and bring evidence and witnesses to support his or her case. It is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney protecting your rights.

At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys provide strong, aggressive criminal defense representation to individuals during restraining order hearings. We understand the impact a restraining order will have on your life and we work hard to help you defeat the charges.
