“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!!”

When the unthinkable happens and you or someone you love is accused of a serious violent crime, you need aggressive, skilled legal representation. The attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch have the experience to analyze the case against you and prepare an effective strategy that will result in a favorable outcome for you.

With more than 20 years of combined experience and a track record that includes numerous dismissals, reductions in charges and acquittal jury verdicts, the Atlanta attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch have what it takes to represent you or your loved one on even the most serious of charges.

Types Of Violent Crimes And Their Consequences


In Georgia, a conviction for murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison. Under certain circumstances, a murder conviction may carry a life sentence without the possibility of parole. Manslaughter can carry up to a 20-year prison sentence. When the stakes are high, you need skilled fearless legal representation. We are experienced Atlanta trial attorneys who know how to hold the state to its burden of having to prove a case against you beyond a reasonable doubt.

Simple Assault/Aggravated Assault

Assault statutes in Georgia encompass a wide range of behaviors and can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. You can be charged with assault for everything from a fist fight to shooting someone and everything in between. Assault crimes can carry up to a 20-year prison sentence if convicted. When your freedom is on the line, you need skilled lawyers who not only know how to defend against assault charges but, if the situation warrants it, also are able to negotiate a resolution that assures you are not overcharged and that the punishment, if any, fits the crime.

Simple battery/aggravated battery

In Georgia, you can be charged with battery for causing an injury to another person. Many bar fights result in battery charges. Battery cases can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending upon the circumstances of the case. A conviction for battery can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. If charged with battery, you need attorneys who know how to defend against this type of accusation. The Atlanta attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch have the experience to defend against battery charges to work toward achieving a favorable outcome for you.

Domestic Violence

Let’s face it. In Georgia, domestic violence laws favor the alleged victim. When a domestic dispute occurs in your home and the police are called, someone is leaving in handcuffs. You have defenses against a domestic violence charge. When facing a domestic violence prosecution, with your family and your freedom on the line, you need skilled representation. The Atlanta attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch are experienced in this highly specialized area of the law.

Armed robbery/robbery

If you, or someone you love, has been charged with armed robbery or robbery, you need attorneys with experience in tackling the issues that accompany this type of case. If convicted, armed robbery carries a sentence range of a mandatory minimum of 10 years to serve with no chance of parole and a maximum of up to 20 years to life in prison. A robbery conviction carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. When facing the prospect of a mandatory minimum with no parole, you need to hire attorneys experienced in dealing with issues present in armed robbery and robbery cases. The Atlanta attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch have handled hundreds of robbery cases and have the experience and knowledge to fight the allegations against you.
