Strong Charges Require A Strong Defense Strategy
In Georgia, murder and manslaughter are serious offenses. If convicted of murder, your life may be at stake. Under state law, convicted murders get a minimum of life in prison and may be sentenced to the death penalty. Felony-level manslaughter charges carry a maximum of 10 to 20 years in prison — depending on the charge. Even misdemeanor manslaughter charges will result in possible prison time.
At Cohen & Hirsch, we provide strong, aggressive criminal defense representation. We work hard to have our clients’ murder and felony manslaughter charges reduced, and fight for their innocence in court. When clients call on our firm, they know they are getting experienced criminal defense attorneys dedicated to protecting their rights.
Aggressively Protecting Our Clients’ Liberty
At Cohen & Hirsch, we stand up for our clients’ rights. Our attorneys aren’t afraid of a courtroom battle. We will attack the prosecution’s evidence, undermine witness credibility and question the constitutionality of police officers’ actions.
We thoroughly investigate every aspect of your case, including the circumstances surrounding your arrest. If your constitutional rights were violated in any way, we will fight to have evidence thrown out, get your murder charges reduced down to manslaughter and work to have your charges dropped.
Our attorneys use every tool in our arsenal to build ironclad defenses that get our clients the best possible resolution of their murder or manslaughter charges. Common defense strategies include:
