My partner and I wanted to finally cover ourselves with a will , medical power of attorney, and whatever we needed in case of a tragic emergency. Attorney Gage completely covered and protected us on every point. He was prompt to my questions and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of the services of an attorney.

I would like to recommend that anyone who has a loved one with a mental illness contact Derek Gage for legal representation. I have a son with a mental illness who was accused of a heinous crime and possibly facing serious prison time. Derek came through for him. He will be going to get the help that he needs in a mental health facility. I am super happy with this attorney. I will be referring him to any and everyone I know. He is thorough, knowledgeable, sensitive to his client and the families needs, diligent, and professional. I just can't say enough about him. Awesome!!! Thank you Derek

Derek Gage defended my son who has mental health issues. My son was facing prison because of probation violation due to misdemeanor offenses committed when he was off medication. Derek Gage understands mental illness and dealt extremely well with my son and with the convoluted legal system that has few options for the mentally ill. He was successful in navigating past a known "hard-nosed" judge to get my son treatment rather than prison time. His defense speech was eloquent and demonstrated his understanding of the issues that mentally ill people have. He was successful in helping my son to see the need for the treatment and medications that would help him. He even set up a structured treatment option that was affordable and viable. I highly recommend Mr. Gage for legal work in the area of mental health.
