“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!!”

Disobeying Police Orders And Your Rights

Being stopped by police, whether while driving, walking down the street or on your own property, can be a scary, nerve-wracking experience. Unfortunately, without even realizing it, a police officer may interpret your actions as breaking the law.

In Georgia, it is important to understand what acts an officer may interpret as disobeying police orders. At Cohen & Hirsch in Atlanta, our experienced criminal defense attorneys can help you understand your rights and fight any unnecessary charges that you are facing.

Call us today at 404-919-7096 to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help.

Police Rely On Vague Laws To Arrest You

Georgia has many laws giving police rights to stop you and charge you with obstruction of justice, disorderly conduct or resisting arrest if they feel you are disobeying them or hindering their work. A police officer may use the following actions as a basis to arrest you:

  • Running from a police officer when asked to stop
  • Refusing to allow a search of your person, home or car
  • Declining to identify yourself
  • Refusing to answer questions

In Georgia, if police have reasonable suspicion that you are involved in criminal activity, they can stop you and ask you to identify yourself. If you are stopped while driving, you also need to provide identification.

Otherwise, remember that you have the right to remain silent. You also do not have to consent to a search of your home or vehicle without a warrant. Let our attorneys handle the rest. We will look into the details of your arrest and determine if police violated your rights, using evidence we uncover to fight to have charges reduced or dismissed.
