“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 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.”

“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!!”

Understanding Resisting Arrest Charges

Fleeing a police officer or resisting arrest can quickly turn a bad situation into a worse situation. Not only does this make law enforcement officers unhappier, but they can now bring an additional resisting arrest charge against you, on top of the crime they already suspect you have committed. This only makes potential sentencing that much worse.

These charges can take several forms, including:

  • Fleeing the scene of a crime after law enforcement has arrived
  • Continuing to run or flee after police tell you to stop, whether on foot or by car
  • Trying to escape after police have you in handcuffs or in the police car
  • Getting in the way of another person’s arrest
