I grew up in Maryland and am proud to be a first generation lawyer in my family.  I really enjoy helping people.  The greatest part of my job is taking someone who is scared, distraught, and sometimes even desperate and helping to give them peace and control.  My clients regularly tell me they feel so much better after their first consultation with me, because I believe in sitting down with them, and figuring out a plan of action to address their particular problem right from the start.  As a partner at Hirsch and Cosca, it is my responsibility to set the tone for how clients are treated, and our firm takes great pride in being caring, dynamic, and hard working.

Excellent Attorney, Rebecca Emily Cosca
When the first time I talked to Rebecca over the phone, I felt confident with her, at that time I was not even read through people’s appreciation to her. She is kind of Attorney I was looking for. When I had first consultation with her at her office, she even told me that I do not need to hire her and just to go to the court by myself and I would win the case against the person who accused me. I appreciate her honesty, caring and professional to handle the needs of her client. I was so depressed being accused by my co-worker who has no right to file anything to the court because I was the person whom have been harassed by her and I had reasonable fear of her, but I did not file anything to the court against her because I did not have intention to hurt people. I decided to hire Rebecca to stop that evil act. The trial was short; the judge was not even need two of my witnesses to testify and dismissed the case. Many thanks to Rebecca and definitely from now on, Hirsch & Cosca, PC is my personal law firm and will share this appreciation among my friends.

I highly recommend Rebecca Cosca!
"Within the first few minutes of speaking with Rebecca, I knew I was in great hands. Since I was being tried out of my home state, I didn't know anyone to turn to in the MD area. After searching firms online, I came across Hirsch & Cosca. As a women business owner myself, I immediately felt more comfortable working with their firm. However, this is not the sole reason I hired Rebecca. From the very beginning she was very supportive, knowledgable and professional. Throughout the entire process she would respond promptly to any questions I had via email and/or phone call. She even went as far as to research transportation and hotel options for me the week of my court hearing. The results of my case came out much better than I expected. I would highly recommend Rebecca Cosca's services to anyone who is in need of a lawyer who goes above and beyond." - Michelle

AMAZING!
I honestly do not know where to start praising Rebecca Cosca, she is simply amazing. I have paid good money in the past to other attorneys that are very reputable and claim to be the best at what they do, but the results are what counts, and the results with Rebecca were way better! Rebecca is one of a kind. She has a style that is uniquely a combination of professional and comforting. Rebecca was able to get me the best outcome possible in my DUI case. I am not the type to post or write reviews about anyone or anything but Rebecca was so extraordinary that I am compelled to post a review about this amazing attorney. Do yourself a favor if you ever find a need for a criminal, DUI, attorney Rebecca is simply the best choice in the state of Maryland. Her fees are very reasonable and her professionalism is outstanding.

Rebecca is in my opinion one of the best lawyer's in the whole state of Maryland!
Rebecca is the last lawyer in a search for the best for me, I have had lawyer's that people in Baltimore city and Anne Arundel county calmed were the best. But when I really needed someone to come through they asked me for a lot more money and told me the best they could do, and that I would still end up with 8 yrs in prison! That's when I had to find someone who could do atleast something better for me, and my girlfriend at the time found Rebecca, I took my problem to her and she is the only one who said she could get the charge dropped to a simple traffic ticket and that I would walk away with no jail time! And that's exactly what happened! I would have gladly paid more for her, so I used her again, and she is just amazing! Believe me I'm no saint but I don't belong in jail, and she is the only one who can keep me out. So if you have something you are facing time on take it to her if you want to stay out! PS. She isn't even from my county and far better than all the top lawyers in it! Thank you Rebecca from the bottom of my heart Mark N.

Rebecca is incredible!
Rebecca was incredible in my case. I had a ridiculous felony charge that I was terrified about. So I did my research on attorneys and had consultations with four other lawyers before meeting with Rebecca. I knew IMMEDIATELY, during our consultation, that she was the right choice for me. Rebecca was honest about the circumstances of my case and what we could expect. She was also considerate and understanding. I could tell that she would devote time to my case and keep frequent contact with me, which she did once I hired her. Some of the other lawyers treated my case like it would be an easy win for them rather than a serious matter that would impact my life, but Rebecca insisted that even though the charges sounded ridiculous she would not take them lightly. Rebecca was even better while actually working on my case. She is so well connected that she knew the prosecutor personally and spoke with them about the details of my case. Also, during my court appearance, she explained everything that was going to happen and did so again once it was over. This was another one of Rebecca's actions that convinced me of her greatness. The court proceedings often use jargon that untrained people cannot understand. Rebecca knows that and communicates brilliantly. All charges were dropped, and I couldn't be happier. Hire her!

Excellent experience
My experience with Rebecca Emily Cosca was amazing from the first day I met her to get consultation for my hit and run case. After talking with her all my worries and concerns evaporate immediately. She is not only professional, but she is also culturally competent. She can handle people from different cultures and races with ease. Furthermore, she is also very fair. She will charge very reasonable amount. I am very much to blessed to have Rebecca as my attorney. I really appreciate her patience, knowledge and kindness during the whole process. I recommend Rebecca for all people who need professional help . They will never regret it!

The best choice
When I went to Rebecca’s office I was very sad and worried. After talking to her, I was feeling automatically much more relaxed and confident that I was doing the right choice. She is a fantastic lawyer who knows exactly what she is doing. She explains everything with much detail, and exactly what the steps are. She was answering my queries very quickly and relaxed me when I was worried before. I was impressed with the way she handled my case and happy that it was solved successfully. I really recommend her services!!

Competent & Compassionate!
My experience with Attorney Cosca has been outstanding! From the initial phone call to my court date, she was professional and compassionate. She returned phone calls within 24 hours, listened to my side & offered her advice on how to proceed. Attorney Emily Cosca loves what she does & it shows through her work. Her fees are fair & she was available to answer my questions. Grateful I hired her!!

Magnificent!
Ms. Cosca represented me in two matters related to the same incident. First I had been served with a temporary protective order with a final protective order hearing scheduled. Lots of scary stuff in the document(not to mention it being served by the county sheriff’s deputy at 3 am on a Saturday). Anyway I searched on the internet and found these ratings for Ms. Cosca and I called her. She immediately put my mind at ease, told me what the situation was and how we would handle it. Anyway the protective order was dropped. About a month and a half later I started to get junk mail from what ended up to be around 40 lawyers and bail bondmen. I called Ms. Cosca to see if she might know what was up and she was able to find out that I had been charged with second degree assalt due to the incident. Two months after it had occurred. I didn’t even get served until a couple of weeks later. I never would have known I had been charged if I didn’t call Ms. Cosca! Anyway I of course hired her again and long story long, the charge was dropped. She is now working to get the charged expunged from my record. So she is two for two with my problems. Anyway if I ever find myself in this situation I would not hesitate to hire Ms. Cosca and of course highly recommend that you do the same.

Perfect lawyer for the perfect outcome!
There are several things that make Rebecca special. First, came the answers to all of the questions I had. Second, was the incredible way she addressed the serious issues and circumstances I was facing. Third, was her ability to be completely human and make me feel confident that everything would be okay. After waiting and working our way through the legal process, I'm very pleased to know that having the right person on my side can make all the difference in your outcome. Rebecca Cosca truly is awesome!

Excellent Criminal Defense Lawyer
I would highly recommend Rebecca for many reasons. Ms. Cosca was my sons attorney and she did an excellent job representing him in a criminal felony case in Baltimore City's court. My son was facing charges that would have ruined his young life. From the instant that I met Ms. Cosca, she was on the job. I had a really tough decision to make on my sons representation and she assured my from the very beginning that he would be very well taken care of and she absolutely told the truth. Rebecca is an experienced lawyer who was warm, accepting and very re-assuring through the entire process, which let me know that my son could trust her. Whenever we had questions about the case, she explained in details in which someone with limited law experience would understand. Rebecca Cosca is an excellent lawyer who you can trust with your legal matters and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a lawyer.

Review of the law firm of Hirsch & Cosca
I would highly recommend Hirsch & Cosca for many reasons. Rebecca Cosca was my attorney and I thought she did a wonderful job representing me in front of the court. From the moment I met her she was really warm, accepting, and even a bit humorous. These traits were what really stood out to me and made me feel like I could trust her. Since it was my first time dealing with the legal system, I didn’t completely understand the way things worked. She was able to explain to me the entire legal proceedings in a way I could understand. I was certain I could rely on her. I would highly recommend Hirsch & Cosca for anyone seeking a lawyer.

REBECCA IS BEST!
Great team of attorneys! Gary and Rebecca handled a DUI/DWI case for me and did an excellent job. I was always able to get a hold of them and they were always willing to answer any questions I had. On my court date, Rebecca went to trial with me. Before facing the judge she explained to me how she was going to handle my case. In the end Rebecca was able to get all my charges dropped and the judge gave me reckless driving. Rebecca really took care of me and worked hard

Fantastic & Caring
Rebecca is easy to write a review for: She is a fantastic lawyer who knows exactly what she is doing. She explains everything really well and she is super cool and caring. Don't even think about using anyone else. She treats you like a real person and you can tell her anything and she understands and is totally on your side. Rebecca really cares about about me and my situation. My cousin who referred me to her says the same things. Bottom line, Rebecca os the real deal!

Awesome Lawyer!
I love Rebecca and her wonderful staff. She did an awesome job helping me with my case. I do not have a record and I can now put everything behind me now! I went to another lawyer first and he was exactly what I didn't want. He had no plan but promised that he was the best. He even did this thing wheer he tried to put his hand on mine saying that he would take care of me like he was some kind of godfather. I actually had to keep from laughing at him. Rebecca is nothing like that. She is a straight shooter and after listening without interrupting me started to formulate a plan. She laid out what I was up against and what options I had. I knew I wanted her as my lawyer. She and her staff kept me informed and I met with her many times. And she charges a project fee. I was able to call her and meet with her and go over my case without getting an additional fee. She even spoke with a family member about my case without charing me additionally. Rebecca was just wonderful and always down to earth and easy to talk with. Please, stay away from the overconfident patronizing jerks and go to Rebecca. I did and it was the best choice I could have made!

Guardian Angel!
Ms. Cosca is wonderful! She got me out of jail the next day and took care of everything. My family was recommended to her by a friend. She came to the jail and met with me and right away I knew I had a Guardian Angel by my side. I know how hard she worked on my case and the results are that I got out jail the following day (what nightmare) and she kept me from going back. And, I avoided a record. Things I love about her and her firm: 1. I can always get hold of her. 2. She talks to me not down - and is there to help not preach. 3. She knows what she is doing. 4. She explains what is going on in ways that are easy to understand. 5. Everyone in the courtroom loves her - the judge and the prosecutor. 6. She is very smart. If you get in trouble and its serious trouble go to Rebecca Cosca.

Awesome!
I LOVE Rebecca! She absolutely kept me from jail. In fact, the judge said that if he had not been so impressed with all the things Ms. Cosca did, I would be locked up. On a personal note, Rebecca is very understanding and down to earth. I went to see other lawyers before I found out from a friend that I should check out Ms. Cosca. Everyone kept telling me how hard my case was and that I would go to jail and that I was a mess. They were jerks. I needed help not a sermon. Rebecca was great and laid out a plan that made sense and worked. Before you hire another lawyer, please make an appointment to meet with Rebecca!

Amazing!
Ms. Cosca is the best lawyer and caring and warm. I had a charge that was very embarrassing and would have effected my employment situation possible forever. Ms. Cosca was very understanding and told me that she could help me. I went to another lawyer before I met with Ms. Cosca and he was basically an A**hole. He started giving me a lecture and told me how he might be able to help because he had connections with the prosecutor. When I met with Ms. Cosca she explained everything tome and spoke to me as an intelligent person that needed help. Skip the BS and go to Ms. Cosca!
