“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!!”

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 fraud charges, accusations of theft and more. When police officers find illegal prescription drugs, they tend to examine how they were acquired — via stolen prescription pads, being stolen or by “doctor shopping”, aka seeing numerous doctors to obtain 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.
