  • Fred William DeVore IV

    I have known Derek for over 15 years, and so my endorsement of him comes from both a personal and professional level. Derek is a brilliant guy who has always been really good at combining his book smarts with his innate common sense. He is the first person I come to when I have any legal question because I know if he does not know the answer he will find the answer very quickly. His intelligence and good work ethic make him a good lawyer, but his people skills, his sincerity, and his hunger for always wanting to help those in need, make him a great lawyer in my opinion.
