- Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague
I was so impressed with Derrick that I joined his firm! He is honest, open, and provides his honest opinion.
- Same Client
Derrick and I have jointly represented clients.
Derrick always does his homework, reviews files carefully, and it brutally honest. With Derrick, you don't have to guess where you stand -- he will tell you, good or bad.
Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:
Derrick knows things that no ordinary lawyer knows. He has been practicing law at a high level for so long that it's become second nature.
Derrick can cut through legal issues and identify what really matters. He is able to identify the critical issues and quickly provide the answers.
Derrick is in court nearly every morning, and he meets with clients nearly every afternoon. He is an outstanding communicator -- he has to be.
Derrick is extraordinarily ethical. Clients asked him to be unethical to help them. And he flat out refuses. He won't do anything that is even arguably unethical.
Criminal law, drunk driving, business law, and landlord-tenant.
