“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.”

A Guide To Search And Seizure Guidelines

Located in Atlanta, the attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch are dedicated to protecting the constitutional rights of Georgia’s citizens. Our attorneys have more than 20 years of combined experience standing up to illegal police practices. If your search and seizure rights were violated, we will fight to have tainted evidence thrown out and get your charges dismissed.

Our Attorneys Fight For Your Constitutional Rights

Federal and state laws prohibit unlawful search and seizure. Georgia has strict search and seizure guidelines police officers must follow when making a stop, frisking your person or searching your home or property. If these guidelines are violated, any evidence found must be withheld from court.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we carefully examine all of the circumstances leading up to and surrounding your arrest. If your constitutional rights regarding search and seizure were violated in any way, we will fight to have evidence thrown out and your charges dismissed.

Common Fourth Amendment search and seizure violations include:

  • Warrantless searches
  • Invalid search warrants
  • Invalid arrest warrants
  • Lack of probable cause
  • Lack of reasonable suspicion
  • Contextual reasons for a stop

Keeping Illegally Obtained Evidence Out Of Court

Individuals have a greater expectation of privacy in their homes. If police searched your home without a valid search warrant, all of the evidence garnered in that search is inadmissible in court.

Police must also have a valid reason to detain you, or pull you over on the road. After the stop, cops must have reasonable suspicion to believe you are engaged in criminal activity before frisking you, or searching your car. If you were pulled over for a contextual reason, or police lacked reasonable suspicion, any further search of your person or your car is invalid.

As a former prosecutor, attorney Jill Polster knows the tricks prosecutors and police use when attempting to introduce questionable evidence into court. Attorney Andy Cohen has more than a decade of criminal defense experience. Together, our lawyers work to block the admission of illegally obtained evidence, protect our clients’ constitutional rights and fight for our clients’ freedom.
