Courtney Lerch

Defense for Any DUI or Drug Charge

Getting arrested for drunk driving is a frightening, embarrassing, and frustrating experience, especially since it is a crime where many people face the criminal justice system for the first time. A conviction can result in jail time, driver’s license suspension, costly fines, increased insurance premiums, and other penalties that can impact your personal life and professional reputation.

Our attorneys can investigate your arrest, collect and assess evidence, and develop an effective and personalized defense strategy on your behalf. From start to finish, let us give you the personalized assistance necessary to get the most favorable results in court.

Drug charges are some of the most common crimes in Georgia and courts often pursue the maximum penalties. Fortunately, Founding attorney Courtney Lerch has been fighting drug charges since the beginning of her career. These include both misdemeanor and felony charges, such as simple possession, trafficking, and manufacturing.

Not only can our firm help you get the most favorable outcome in your case, but we can also get you the help you need to overcome addiction. The courts understand that many people charged with drug crimes are dealing with substance abuse, which is why there are diversion programs available for people to seek rehabilitation and ultimately get their charges dropped.
