    • I recommend Derege Demissie.
    • I hired Derege 6-12 months ago.
    • Derege handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Attorney Demissie represented my child who recently dropped out of college due to substance abuse problems. My son got himself into a major problem and faced serious criminal charges because of what people he associated with were doing. A friend referred me to Atty. Demissie. He was straightforward and very thoughtful. He advised my son to take the case to trial as he had a good chance of winning. He presented the case and won not guilty verdict on all charges.

    I hired attorney demissie last year to help with a major case. He handled my case in a very professional manner with excellent legal strategy. He was brilliant and I cannot be happier with his service.

    • I recommend Derege Demissie.
    • I hired Derege 1-3 years ago.
    • Derege handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I hired Attorney Demissie to represent me in a state felony case. He encouraged me to opt for a jury trial instead of taking a deal that I was being offered. One thing I can say is that he is fearless and strong and doesn't back down. When I first met him, I thought he was soft spoken. When we went to court, he was unbelievable. He is very respected by the judge and I though the jury listened to him more than the prosecutor. He was in total control. I won all nine counts and walked out with him.

    Derege represented my son in major felony charge out of the suffolk superior court. Despite the govt wiretap evidence and purported "confession" he won a not guilty verdict for my son. I will forever be indebted to him.

    • I do not recommend Derege Demissie.
    • I hired Derege more than 3 years ago.
    • Derege handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    He was a little too focused on himself. His advise was poor and later I found out that I was correct in NOT hiring him.

    I retained Attorney Derege Demissie to represent me and my company a year ago. he did an outstanding job fo me. He was prompt. very well prepared and knew his stuff. He was more focused on getting me the best result than just getting paid. He was not cheap but worth every dime I paid him.
