A Criminal Defense Firm Ready To Fight For You

I am attorney Courtney Lerch. When I founded The Lerch Law Firm, I decided to focus entirely on providing criminal defense services to accused individuals living in Chatham, Bryan and Effingham counties and the surrounding areas in Coastal Georgia. I offer a defense against a wide range of charges, including:

  • Traffic violations
  • Fishing without a license
  • Driving under the influence
  • Boating under the influence
  • Drug charges
  • Weapons charges
  • Theft
  • Aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Obstruction of justice
  • Bank fraud

Regardless of whether you face a felony or a misdemeanor, you can approach legal proceedings with confidence with me at your side. While I will work to negotiate with local prosecutors on my clients' behalves, I also have a reputation as an aggressive trial attorney, so I am ready to go to trial if that is the best choice for your situation.

If you would like to discuss your recent arrest and resulting charge with me, I invite you to schedule a free initial consultation at my law office in Savannah by emailing me or calling 912-495-8874.

A Defense For Any Drug-Related Charges

Since the beginning of my career, I have fought countless drug charges in court, and I will fight your charges with the same diligence and aggression that have earned me a reputation as a tough and skilled criminal lawyer. For representation upon which you can depend, you can turn to my firm for a defense against any drug-related charge, such as:

  • Simple possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Trafficking
  • Manufacture

In addition, I will represent you regardless of the drug involved in your case. From marijuana to heroin to even more complex matters, such as cases involving secondary weapons charges, I have the experience to build a defense strategy to fit your needs.

Facing A DUI Charge? You Have Options.

When clients come to me because of DUI charges, they often feel convicted before their cases even go to court. My job as a defense attorney is to alleviate my clients' concerns and assure them that the justice system sees them as innocent until it is proved otherwise.

Whether you face a first-time DUI, an enhanced penalty or a felony DUI, I will work to help you understand your charge, the penalties you could face and the legal options available for your specific case.
