    I hired attorney Wright for several different cases. The first was a case against my landlord. Mr.Wright not only kept me informed of my rights and up to speed on the currect laws concerning my case.The end result was great not only did i win against the landlord who filed against me;I was awarded a judgement against the landlord. I also had a few civil cases against another person for harassment and stalking. Mr.Wright respresented me and I was grated a Tpo against the person for 12 months. He also filed my annulment which was quick professional and done in a timely manner. I have since referred attorney Wright to several friends and family. One client I referred went for a divorce. After going to battle against his clients wife in trial. Not only did his client get granted a divorce he also won primary custody of his two minor children. I am extremely pleased with him!!!

    Attorney Derek Wright is an amazing attorney. He is extremely knowledgeable, charismatic which is a great characteristic to have during a trial, he pays attention to the smallest details, and he thinks quickly on his feet. I had 6 felony charges with a maximum sentence of 65 years I was found not guilty of all six charges. I will forever be grateful for Derek's hardwork and dedication in regards to my case. He also worked with me in regards to a payment plan. I will definitely refer him to anyone that is in need of a criminal defense attorney. I thank god but I also thank Derek for giving me my life back.

    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Wright is an exceptional attorney. Mr. Wright handled my sons case professionally and kept me comfortable by walking me through each phase of the process as we took each step. He was exceptional at listening to me and converting my lack of legal understanding to a comprehensible level. Mr Wright's conduct was always professional and respectful. He was very knowledgeable, and my son was acquitted on all counts against him (armed robbery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm). I hold him in the highest esteem, and would recommend him to anyone in need of a Criminal attorney who is battle tested and a Gladiator in the court room.
