“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!!”

First-Time Offenders

At Cohen & Hirsch, our aggressive criminal defense attorneys have been fighting for clients’ rights for more than 20 combined years. We know the devastating impact of a criminal conviction … loss of employment, home and driving privileges. We use every available legal tool to keep our clients out of jail and keep their records clean. Fortunately, there are many ways to avoid having a conviction on your criminal history.

Alternatives To A Conviction

There are many ways to deal with criminal charges. At Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers examine each client’s specific position to find the best possible solution to his or her criminal charges. Oftentimes, alternative paths may offer individuals the best final outcome.

Nonviolent, first-time offenders charged with misdemeanors or low-level felonies may be eligible to participate in a pretrial diversion program through a Municipal, State or Superior Court. As part of the program, individuals agree to participate in alternative forms of sentencing — such as community service and completing classes — in exchange for a dismissal of charges and the opportunity to maintain a clean record. Upon successful completion of the program, not only will the individual’s case will be dismissed, but the record of the charges may be restricted (expunged) off of your criminal history.

First-time offenders are also able to avoid a permanent criminal record by entering a plea under Georgia’s First Offender statute or under Georgia’s conditional discharge sentencing for first-time offenders charged with drug and drug-related crime. Under the terms of either the First Offender statute or the conditional discharge statute, individuals plead guilty to their criminal charges. A plea on a drug or drug-related case under the conditional discharge statute will prevent a driver’s license suspension. After successful completion of the terms and conditions of your plea, your case will be discharged and access to your criminal record will be restricted (expunged).
