“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.”

Facing Felony DUIs

The stakes go up with each DUI arrest. If you already have a drunk driving conviction on your record, you could be facing your picture in the paper, suspension of your license, 240 hours of community service, fines and jail time if you are convicted again.

At the Cohen & Hirsch, in Atlanta, Georgia, we understand how life changing these allegations can be. Our lawyers work hard to provide a vigorous and ethical defense to drunk driving charges.

Serving clients throughout DeKalb County and the Greater Atlanta area, we represent clients accused of repeat or felony DUI. If you have been accused, you could be facing serious consequences, including a three-year administrative suspension of your driver’s license for a second DUI conviction. We may be able to negotiate on your behalf, helping you to obtain a work permit with an ignition interlock device.

Timing Is Critical In Repeat DUI Cases

Timing is critical in repeat DUI cases, because your second arrest in ten years carries with it more serious consequences. But, as time passes, DUI convictions carry less weight with criminal courts and administrative agencies like the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS).

If enough time has passed, an old conviction will not be counted against you. In criminal courts, there is a 10-year look back window for DUI arrests. This means that, when a judge or prosecutor examines your case, he or she will count back 10 years to determine how many previous DUIs you have encountered. DDS uses a five-year look back window.

This calculation can be more complex than you might think because of a July 2008 change in the law. It is best to check with an experienced attorney to learn how the law will apply in your case.

Sometimes people worry that their lawyer is going to judge them. They avoid seeking needed help because they don’t want someone to look down on them. At the Cohen & Hirsch, we don’t look down on our clients. Period. We are on your side after a drunk driving arrest — even if it’s not your first or even your fifth. The things you tell us are confidential. And we always fight hard to protect your rights and your freedom.
