When someone comes to me with a criminal law matter, I refer them to David Lehr, who I have known for years. David has a lot of experience in this area, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, so he knows his way around the criminal courts. As someone who has represented both sides in civil personal injury and insurance cases, I think that kind of knowledge and experience is valuable and important.

The Greatest Lawyer, Bar None. David Michael Lehr is everything you could possibly hope for in your lawyer. He has handled two cases for me, creating best case scenarios out of what seemed like complete disaster. David is intelligent, efficient, empathetic, hard working, and absolutely great at what he does. He is very well connected and always seems to be one step ahead of everything. He is calm and collected every time we speak, yet remains spirited and infectiously optimistic at times where you cannot seem to do so yourself. While he always knows what is to be done and is working hard doing exactly that, he takes time out of his day to answer questions, keep you informed, and keep you at ease. I always knew what was going on and I could go to sleep each night knowing my situation was in the best hands possible. He not only cares about the case, he cares about you. It is clear he knows the ins and outs of everything he deals with and truly cares about everything that comes across his desk. David has done an amazing job and I believe he really worked his hardest for me as a client. My legal issues were resolved, my life back on track, and my mind put to ease, all thanks to David. I highly recommend David Michael Lehr to anyone and everyone looking to make a good decision.

I can write all day about myself, but you need help and you need it now! Just call me and let's develop a plan to either WIN, or reduce the DAMAGE, that this case is going to cause to your life, family, and career.

In case it matters:
I am a former local Senior Deputy District Attorney. (1993 to 2007).
I have been fighting for you since 2007!
I handle:
DUI, Domestic Violence, Murder, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Drug Sales, Guns and Gangs, or just Gun charges.
Robbery, Grand Theft and Major Fraud.
Third Strike (25 to Life and more!), Second Strike (Double the prison) and all types of Sexual Assault. (Very long sentences if there is a conviction.
I have also helped hundreds of people get into drug treatment programs instead of jail or prison.
If you are looking for a friend who is in jail, ask them to ask about me and then give me a call.
I understand how these charges can give you a criminal record and prevent you from living a normal life. That is why I put my best efforts into defending them.
I can also help you find a trustworthy bail company.
