“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 Georgia Law On Prescription Drug Charges

Prescription drugs, such as Xanax, OxyContin and oxycodone, and hydrocodone, are highly addictive. Unfortunately, many individuals find themselves dependent after being prescribed these medications for surgery, illness or injury, and will do anything to obtain these medications after their refills run out.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Cohen & Hirsch, helps clients defend against their criminal prescription drug charges. We provide clients with the ironclad criminal defense representation they need to overcome their criminal prescription drug charges.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we know there is more to the story than the police report; we are here to make sure your story gets heard. By appealing to juries and creating solid defenses, we get our clients the best possible outcome based on their circumstances.

How Prescription Drug Charges Work

Drug possession charges can quickly spiral into additional criminal charges such as theft, forgery and prescription fraud charges. After finding illegal prescription drugs, police officers often begin examining how they were acquired — whether through theft, via stolen prescription pads or by visiting numerous doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions.

In Georgia, it is illegal to carry prescription drugs in any container other than the original prescription bottle. That means if you carry your medication in a pillbox, you could be charged with possession of illegal prescriptions.

Strategies For Defending Against Serious Charges

At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys are aggressive criminal defense litigators. As a former prosecutor, Jill Polster knows what the prosecution will do before they do it. Drawing on her inside knowledge, our firm takes proactive steps to build our clients’ defenses and keep them out of jail.

If this is your first offense, our lawyers will do everything in our power to keep you out of court and keep your criminal record clean. We often recommend alternative strategies, such as pretrial diversion programs and drug court, to help our clients overcome their drug dependencies and avoid criminal penalties.

Contact Cohen & Hirsch Criminal Defense
