“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.”

Obstruction Of Justice Charges

Located in Atlanta, individuals throughout Georgia turn to Cohen & Hirsch when they need strong, aggressive defense against criminal disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice charges.

Disorderly Conduct — A Subjective Crime

In Georgia, disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor. Charges can arise from behavior that is violent or tumultuous, or creates a reasonable fear of injury to person or property. Disorderly conduct charges can also be brought for using “fighting words,” or abusive or profane language that breaches the peace and incites violence. These laws are highly subjective. Oftentimes, police officers interpret the law broadly, and charge individuals with disorderly conduct under debatable circumstances.

If convicted of a misdemeanor, you face fines, possible jail time and a permanent mark on your criminal record.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we closely examine the circumstances surrounding your disorderly conduct charges. If police officers were too liberal in bringing the charge, or the situation giving rise to the charges is questionable, we will fight to have the charges dropped and the case dismissed.

Georgia Obstruction Of Justice Charges

In Georgia, obstruction of justice is a broad crime that encompasses many types of behavior law enforcement finds disagreeable, including:

  • Resisting arrest
  • Interfering with, or hindering, police investigation or duties
  • Violence against a police officer
  • Giving false testimony
  • Disobeying any orders from a police officer
  • Destroying or hiding evidence
  • Influencing witnesses or jurors

Depending on the circumstances, the crime may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.

If you are convicted for misdemeanor obstruction of justice, you are facing fines and possible jail time. Felony convictions carry steeper fines and up to five years in prison. Even after serving your time, you will have a permanent criminal record. Convicted felons are stripped of their right to vote and possess a firearm.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we are serious criminal defense attorneys. Our lawyers have more than 20 years of combined experience defending clients in court. We are aggressive, and we stand firm in our defense. Attorney Jill Polster is a former prosecutor.
