“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 Sexual Assault Charges In Georgia

Sexual assault charges should never be taken lightly. Even an allegation of sexual assault can affect your professional and personal reputation, and a conviction can impact the rest of your life. At Cohen & Hirsch, we provide serious, strategic offense against charges of sexual assault.

State Definitions Of Sexual Assault

Georgia defines “sexual assault” differently than other states. Under Georgia law, a person commits sexual assault when they initiate sexual contact with a person they have authority over in some way. This could include, for example, sexual contact between:

  • A teacher and a student
  • A health care provider and a patient
  • A law enforcement officer and someone in custody

A sexual assault conviction can result in extensive jail time and fines. Penalties for sexual assault can be especially strong if the assault involves a child under age 16 and an adult perpetrator: a conviction in this type of case can result in 25-50 years in jail.

If you are facing rape allegations or charges of sexual assault involving someone you have authority over, it is crucial to discuss your case with an attorney as soon as possible. At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys are experienced at preparing sophisticated defenses against charges of sexual assault and other sex crimes. We will work to prepare the strongest case possible to protect your freedom and your future.

You Do Not Have To Face Sexual Assault Charges Alone
