“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!!”

Dealing With A Possession With Intent To Distribute Charge

Drug crime charges can vary greatly, from simple possession to drug trafficking. Somewhere in the middle lies possession with intent to distribute: a serious offense that arises when law enforcement or investigators have reason to believe an individual intends to sell drugs.

How can an officer justify such a charge? The amount of a controlled substance and the types of drug paraphernalia found in the accused’s possession play a role. Possession in this case can either mean physical possession (found on the person) or constructive possession (found in a place controlled by the person).

We Offer Clients Experienced Representation

Our attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch have vast experience in defending clients against drug crime accusations of possession with intent to distribute throughout Georgia, including those in DeKalb County and beyond.

We strive to have charges against our clients reduced or dismissed by challenging the evidence brought against them. This could involve uncovering law enforcement’s procedural errors, violations of the accused’s rights during investigations or arrest, or providing evidence that our client was falsely accused.

Law Enforcement Procedures Can Influence The Outcome Of Your Case

We have seen cases where individuals are pulled over for minor traffic violations and end up having their vehicles searched. During the search, the officer may uncover some amount of marijuana, cocaine or another controlled substance. He or she may also find baggies, scales or other items commonly connected with sale of a controlled substance.

These connections do not necessarily mean an individual intended to sell drugs. Furthermore, the officer may not have had probable cause to search the vehicle. Situations like these offer opportunities to suppress evidence, and otherwise minimize the consequences of a criminal charge.
