“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!!”

Low-Level Marijuana Possession Charges

Although a misdemeanor in Georgia, the charge of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is still a serious offense with serious consequences. At Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers take this charge very seriously. We work closely with our clients, guiding them through the legal system from the moment we take your case until matters are resolved favorably. If you or someone you love have been accused of this crime, we can answer your questions and help you determine the right criminal defense strategy for your unique situation.

The Consequences Of A “Guilty” Plea

There are unforeseen consequences to entering a guilty plea and paying a fine for the possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. Did you know that you could jeopardize your driver’s license by entering a guilty plea? It could also impact your employment. Additionally, this charge carries the potential of 12 months in a jail and up to a $1,000 fine?

Many of the people we represent are college students who risk losing their financial aid if convicted of drug possession. We take these cases seriously. While it is impossible to predict the results of your case, we often are able to obtain favorable results for students charged with marijuana possession in DeKalb County state court. Our clients often come out of the situation with no conviction, no loss of driver’s license and no loss of student loans.

Just as there are unforeseen consequences to entering a guilty plea, there are also unforeseen defenses for this charge that only an experienced attorney, like the attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch, will be able to identify and properly defend.

Depending on the facts of your case, our legal team may be able to challenge the traffic stop of your vehicle or search of your person or home that resulted in the charges you are now facing. Our experience in handling this specific type of drug case can mean a critical difference in the outcome for our clients.

Preserve Your Future And Your Reputation
