“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!!”

Arrested After Acting In Self-Defense

If you are being attacked, or are in fear for your life, you have the right to use force — even deadly force — to protect yourself.

Killing someone in self-defense is not a crime. If you have been charged with murder, manslaughter or assault while defending your life, you are innocent. At Cohen & Hirsch, we will help you prove it. Located in Atlanta, our attorneys have been providing strong, aggressive criminal defense representation to Georgia citizens for more than 20 combined years.

Stand Your Ground Laws In Georgia And How They Work

Under Georgia’s “stand your ground” laws, there is no duty to retreat. Individuals cannot be held guilty for killing an individual in self-defense. If you believe you or another is in imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death, you can use deadly force for protection.

At Cohen & Hirsch, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the alleged criminal event. Our lawyers work hard to uncover evidence of earlier threats or disputes, cross-examine witnesses to reveal inconsistencies and biases in their stories, and build strong criminal defense campaigns that prove our clients acted in self-defense.

You have the right to protect your home. If someone forcibly enters your home, putting you, your family and your property at risk, you have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself, your family and your property.
