Top notch services in all aspects
Courtney has been my attorney for several cases in the past, and has provided excellent service in each and every one. Her personal attention to my case and tenacity to make things happen set her apart from any other attorney I have had experience with. I have recommended her services to friends and family that have all had the same experience: top notch representation at a fair rate.

Defense Attorney
She was assigned to us for a federal charge. She took great care of my son, helping out in every phase. I am retired military and would retain her for her area of expertise . Great personality and very professional, I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Best Lawyer in Savannah
From start to finish I could not have asked for a better experience or personal attention to my case. Courtney and everyone in her office are top notch, caring, and professional. I was in a situation where I could have easily ended up spending time in jail, but because of Courtney and her team I was able to settle my case by paying a fine and doing some community service. I could not have asked for a better outcome. If you are in need of a lawyer, I highly recommend hiring the Lerch Law Firm.

Courtney is the best!
I had a couple of traffic tickets, including one for no insurance due to a mix up with my insurance provider. Courtney, Jenna, and the team at The Lerch Firm jumped on the case a couple of days later and started working with the municipal court and eventually had it transferred to State Court. They kept on the case and got all charges dismissed. If you are ever in need of an attorney, don't hesitate to call them!!

Veteran Friendly and a Solid Performer!!!
It had been 14 years since I had my driving privileges I was dealing with two states Georgia where I got my DUIs and I now live in Florida. Miss Courtney wasted no time as soon as I told her about my case she jumped right on it within 2 weeks she knew more than all the three lawyers I had hired before her. She easily outperformed. All three of them and gave me a decent rate as well and was willing to let me make payments. If anybody has ever dealt with getting your privileges restored when you're working with two different states it can be very difficult. Anyhow thanks to Courtney I have my driver's license restored after 14 years she is good to go tried-and-true. Don't waste your time with other lawyers go ahead and give her a chance and she will show you what I'm talking about

Grateful to have Lerch Law Firm in my corner!
I was put in touch with Ms. Lerch via a friend after being blindsided by a legal matter. Having had no previous experience in dealing with law enforcement or any allegation of legal misdeeds beyond a traffic violation, I was terrified. I was able to speak with Ms. Lerch within an hour of receiving her contact information. Within the next half hour she contacted the involved parties, intercepted harassing phone calls and emails, and diffused what could have been a very inflammatory situation. I am grateful for her representation in this matter and with Ms. Lerch advocating on my behalf, I was able to return to my family and work knowing that Lerch Law Firm would manage any threats.

Great Attorney!
I contacted Ms. Lerch's office after looking online for an attorney to represent on a DUI case. Her office called me back within an hour of initial contact! I thought that was awesome. Ms. Lerch was able to get the charge reduced to reckless driving. No more court dates. I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. Ms. Lerch and her assistant couldn't have been nicer and more personable. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to hire Courtney Lerch.

Courtney took care of our issue (speeding ticket) and made it as painless as possible. She kept us up to date on what was happening throughout. She worked her way through the court process seamlessly and dealt with all of our questions and concerns professionally. She resolved everything even better than we had hoped. Thanks so much!

Superior Representation by Courtney Lerch, Savannah Attorney
I wish to sing the praises of my Savannah Attorney, Courtney Reynolds Lerch in Defense of my DUI Case that began in 2015 and was totally completed in 2019. From my arrest to receipt of the Court Completion Certificate Courtney demonstrated her competence assuring me of the very maximum result with a minimum of total cost. Thank you again Courtney!

Solid defense
Courtney's knowledge of the law, her strong court presence and her practical approach to the specific details of my case were a Godsend. She did a great job and I would highly recommend her for any traffic or criminal matters.

There are not enough great things I can say about my experience with Courtney. She was proactive, and took the time out of her busy schedule to addressed my needs in a traffic case. I dropped the case in her lap 2 days before my court date and she had it taken care of the next day. She did a excellent job of explaining everything and walking me through the process. I would not only recommend Courtney, but I would not use anyone else for my defense needs.

Excellent Attorney!
Courtney is an excellent attorney! She handled my case with the utmost professionalism. She is easy to get in touch with and always returns my phone calls. She explained the legal process in a way that I could understand. I would hire her if I needed an attorney in the future. I highly recommend her!!
