“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!!”

Cohen & Hirsch: Aggressive, experienced criminal defense

The Consequences Of Aggravated Assault And Battery

In Georgia, assault and battery can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances. Even if you don’t physically injure someone, brandishing a weapon, or creating the fear of physical injury is enough to charge you with assault.

Simple assault and battery are misdemeanors and punishable by up to $1,000 in fines and up to one year in prison. However, if the alleged crime involved certain “aggravating circumstances,” such as an elderly or pregnant victim, a police officer or a domestic situation, fines may be increased to $5,000.

Aggravated assault and battery are felony-level offenses. If found guilty, you face large fines into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and up to 20 years in prison. Even after serving your time, a felony conviction will remain on your permanent record, making it difficult to find employment or housing. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of their right to vote and carry a gun.

At Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys are aggressive litigators. We aren’t afraid of a courtroom battle. We stand up to government prosecutors, protect our clients’ rights and build strategic defenses that get our clients the best possible resolution of their criminal charges.

Hire A Former Prosecutor To Defend You

As a former prosecutor, attorney Jill Polster knows the techniques prosecutors use when building a case against you. Drawing upon her inside knowledge, our firm takes proactive steps to undermine the prosecution’s case and protect our clients’ rights.
