“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.”

Defense Against Drug Crime Charges

At Cohen & Hirsch, we represent people facing misdemeanor and felony criminal charges related to drugs. Our clients are people throughout the Atlanta area and DeKalb County who have been accused of involvement with marijuana, cocaine, crack, meth, prescription drugs, or other controlled substances.

The consequences of a conviction increase with the type and amount of drugs involved, as well as with the type of charges. While the law is the same, the way the law applies to the facts is different in each case. The facts of your case are unique, and we take a unique approach to your defense.

How We Help Clients Facing Drug Crime Charges

We tailor our legal strategy to meet your needs and goals, taking the time to work with you directly throughout your case. From the moment we begin representing you until matters are resolved favorably, we have one goal in mind: achieving the best possible results. Throughout DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb or Gwinnett county, we help those facing these charges.

We handle several different types of drug charges:

  • Drug possession: There are two types of possession: actual and constructive. Actual possession occurs when the drugs allegedly involved were found on your person. Constructive possession isn’t as clear. In a constructive possession situation, the drugs may have been found in a car. Because nobody claimed them, each person in the car is said to “constructively” possess the drugs.
  • Possession with intent to distribute: This crime is charged when the drugs allegedly involved were in sufficient enough volume to make sale likely. When the police find one ounce of marijuana or more, they usually charge people with possession with intent to distribute. The same is true when the drugs are discovered in many separate baggies, or with a scale and sandwich baggies.
  • Drug trafficking: Trafficking is a serious offense. It is determined entirely by weight. If the quantity of drugs found was significant enough, the police will charge a person with trafficking. If convicted, a defendant will face mandatory minimum jail time and fines, so it is critical to take trafficking charges seriously.
  • Civil forfeiture: During your drug arrest, you may have been stripped of cash and other property. Georgia has some of the worst civil forfeiture laws in the nation. You must act fast to get your property and money back, throughout Dekalb, Cobb, Fulton, or Gwinnett county.

Our attorneys have successfully represented clients who have been charged with marijuana-related crimes, including:

  • Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana
  • Marijuana trafficking and distribution
  • Marijuana cultivation or growing
