Courtney Viebrock serves as an Attorney in the Community Empowerment Project at Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy.
Prior to joining the Advocacy Center in March 2023, Courtney began her legal career administering research and development of federal government contracts with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. After moving to Charlotte, Courtney transitioned to criminal law, working for the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office for five years. As an Assistant District Attorney, she prosecuted misdemeanor and felony cases through all stages in district, juvenile, and superior court while gaining valuable bench and jury trial experience. Most recently, she worked as a civil litigator with a small firm managing a variety of matters including construction defect lawsuits, contract disputes, and summary ejectment actions for both plaintiffs and defendants. Courtney completed a Juris Doctor at the University of Georgia, along with a Bachelor of Arts from Wake Forest University. In her leisure time, Courtney spends time with her husband and children, making ice cream, eating spicy food, and practicing yoga.
Courtney works for the Advocacy Center because she believes legal services should be available to people at all income levels and wants to will that into reality. “It is often those that would benefit most from representation who cannot afford it. I am anxious to put my legal training to use for the population that [The Advocacy Center] serves.”
