“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 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.”

“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!!”

Confronting A Charge Of Hit-And-Run

It’s late, it’s dark, it’s raining, you’re not sure if you nicked another car, backed into someone else’s property or tapped a person standing near the edge of the road — now you are facing criminal hit-and-run charges.

There are many reasons people don’t stop after an accident. Oftentimes, individuals don’t even realize they’ve hit someone. Other times, the fear and anxiety caused by a collision is so overwhelming that drivers simply keep driving.

We all make mistakes. Leaving the scene of an accident does not make you a bad person. At Cohen & Hirsch, we know that sometimes good people get in trouble. Our attorneys dedicate our full time, energy and resources to helping clients overcome their hit-and-run charges and move forward with their lives.

Located in Atlanta, Cohen & Hirsch defends clients throughout Georgia who have been charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

Leaving The Scene Of An Accident

In Georgia, it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident. If you were charged with a hit and run, you may be facing misdemeanor or felony level charges.

Misdemeanor convictions carry fines up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. If another person is seriously injured or killed in a hit-and-run accident, you will be charged with a felony. If convicted, you could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we take our clients’ criminal charges seriously. Our lawyers understand the major impact a criminal conviction will have on our clients’ lives. We do everything in our power to help you defeat your hit-and-run charge.

As a former prosecutor, Jill Polster knows how the prosecution will build its case against you. Drawing upon her inside knowledge, our firm builds powerful defense strategies the prosecution cannot overcome.
