“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.”

Defending College Students On Marijuana Arrests

At Cohen & Hirsch, we help college students defend against criminal marijuana charges. We don’t believe one mistake as a young adult should shadow you for life. Together, we will help you overcome your criminal charges so you can move forward with your life.

Located in Atlanta, our lawyers represent college students throughout the state at Emory, Georgia Tech and Georgia State.

Marijuana Charges: The Legal Consequences

In Georgia, marijuana possession of less than one ounce is charged as a misdemeanor. Convictions bring fines up to $1,000, probation and possible jail time. However, if you possessed more than one ounce, or are charged with intent to sell, you may be facing felony charges.

If convicted of a felony, you are facing years in prison, large fines and a permanent criminal record. Convicted felons are stripped of many civil liberties, including the right to vote and the right to bear arms. Criminal drug charges not only bring legal penalties, but there are also social and economic impacts. Being convicted of a drug crime will make it difficult to gain entry into graduate school, join the military, find a job and maintain your driving privileges.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we understand what is at stake. Our attorneys work hard to keep you out of jail and keep your record clean so your life’s opportunities are not limited.

Academic Consequences Of Drug Convictions

A criminal drug conviction will put your student financial aid in jeopardy. Without federal educational loans, many individuals cannot afford tuition and books, and are unable to complete their academic careers. In addition, many colleges and universities have strict anti-drug policies. Violating these policies could mean suspension, being removed from campus dorms or even expulsion.

At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys are experienced criminal defense litigators. We aggressively protect our clients’ rights and build strong, strategic criminal defenses that get our clients the best outcome possible. We also represent clients during student disciplinary hearings.

We Can Help You Preserve Your Future — Contact Us Today

At Cohen & Hirsch, we use every legal tool available to help our clients defeat their marijuana drug charges. If this is your first offense, alternative forms of restitution — such as pretrial diversion programs and drug courts — can help keep you out of jail.

Marijuana offenses have the ability to seriously impact your life. Do not take them lightly. Contact Cohen & Hirsch at 404-919-7096 for a free consultation.
