Our Reviews

Words from Our Clients

    Courtney has a deep understanding of the law and the how everything works. She guided me through the process, kept me up to date on all aspects of my case, provided valuable advice and lead me to a outcome more favorable than I could have ever expected.

    - Doug

    I had a traffic case and Courtney Lerch was right on top of it and resolved it in short order with an outcome better than my highest expectations.

    - Paul K.

    To make a long story short she got a pretty bad DUI completely dropped so all I can say life saver didn’t even lose my job because of my incident. I give this law firm 10 stars even though they only let me give 5.

    - Bryan M.

    Throughout the process she communicated, received and answered my calls and questions promptly, and made me feel like a person, not a case number.

    - Van W.

    By far, the best, most caring, communicative, honest and supportive lawyer. She truly fights for you and is an amazing person.

    - Bria S.
