Promised to look into my case. Spent a great deal of time in collecting information & Hour drive tome to office. I Told her that it was ok if she did not want to handle case. Just let me know so I could find another lawyer. My case was a little complicated and I would understand. She told me I had a case. Did not answer phone calls & emails, no follow up. Completely unresponsive after initial meeting. Process wasted 2 weeks of my time. Very unprofessional.
I was referred to Mrs. Derry through ARAG a legal Insurance coverage that I carry.
Kimberly Derry helped me with a landlord/tenant case. I have worked with other attorneys in the past for one reason or the other and was very Impressed with Kimberly's aggressiveness. She took full action instead of one step at a time completely preparing me to resolve the issue as soon as possible & with one court appearance. She was also very honest with me to help me understand and plan appropriately. This helped me realize very quickly she wasn't just trying to rack up a bill on me that otherwise I would not be able to afford. I learned to trust her very quickly and know she was ON MY SIDE. With Kim's help I was able to win my case with attorneys fees and present fraud activity to the judge & clerkâ€™s office. I wasnâ€™t even expecting so much information to come out in the court room. I feel this awareness can help so many other innocent renters being taken advantage by real estate investors renting foreclosed homes.
Derry Law offers other services that I had continued putting off due to my hectic & busy lifestyle. The services include, Health Care surrogacy & Estate Planning along with creating a Will. Kimberly helped me move forward with getting these tasks completed and supported me in a way that made the "one more thing to do" get done without even realizing it! I never even had to go to her office! She is great I have already started recommending the law firm to others and I am very comfortable with adding her to my contacts as my attorney.
It's a good feeling to have the confidence to say ..."Let me call my attorney".
Ms. Derry helped me with a credit card lawsuit. I was on a deadline, so I needed help right away. Ms. Derry immediately put me at ease and gave me the immediate impression that she could be trusted. Boy was I right! She made me feel like I was her only client by taking her time with me and answering all of the questions I had over the course of multiple phone calls. She kept me informed with the status of my case every step of the way. It is rare to find an attorney that is so caring and experienced but who also defends your rights aggressively, when needed. Not only was the lawsuit dismissed, but she was even able to recoup the fees I paid her from the credit card company! Not one dime out of my pocket to defend the lawsuit! I had no idea this was even possible. She is a permanent fixture in my rolodex and I will not hesitate to call her again in the future. A very special person, indeed.
Ms. Derry helped me with student loan debt problems that I have. She recommended options that made sense to me and allowed me to lower payments in a reasonable way. Her skill in working with all the people involved in debt solicitation made it easy for me to start to understand how to move towards being debt free. I feel like with her expertise, my debt is now manageable. The best part of the process was her clear explanations to me of how the law works and what my responsibilities were for me to tackle my student debt.
this lawyer was referred to us by a friend to help us with a foreclosure. after talking to her she recommended bankruptcy and we took her advice. we paid her $1500 and were going to give her the last $500 later. after some time of no action and not hearing from her she recommended that we get another lawyer since we moved out of state. she said that she would return our money minus $200 for paperwork. we thanked her and again took her advice. two months went by and we never received any money. another month went by before we were able to get a hold of her. she said that she was changing banks and would send us the money by the end of the week. another month went by and she did not return phone calls or emails. we called the bar association and it took one of their lawyers calling her to ask her to contact us in order for us to hear anything. she told the barr that she had sent the money, and she told us that she had lost our address and needed it again. i sent her the address and reminded her that the amount promised was $1300 to return. she said her records only had her receiving $1000 from us and would return $800. it took me having to get a copy of the cashiers check we sent her for the total amount and sending her a copy with her signature on the back. she never responded and sent us only $800 and a bill charging us for random phone calls. she did nothing illegal but it was still deceitful and shady. she made a promise and we in good faith trusted her. i would not recommend her to anyone and would warn people not to trust her. we have learned a valuable lesson.
My case was not an easy one. Kimberly heard me out, and gave me the honest truth about my situation. I appreciated the way she informed me, and didn't mis lead me to making costly and un wise decisions regarding my case. Kimberly has always been quick to respond to my questions, and I will keep her number on file for anything that may happen in the future. Kimberly really knows what's she's doing, and wouldn't dare lead anyone down the wrong path. That's rare in my experience with Lawyers. Kimberly Derry is a keeper!
