Derek Burks is a very professional attorney. I explained to him how I wanted to handle my divorce in a dignified way (as dignified as a contested divorce can be). He always maintained a professional demeanor and he always kept me aware of my options as to how we could proceed. He responded quickly to any of my inquiries and proved himself to be very trustworthy by not only proving he was knowledgeable of the law, but his respect for the court, and for the client as well. I was able to maintain my dignity walking out of the court room and he also did his absolute best to make sure that the needs of my children and myself were taken care of . He was able to get me more than I was requesting in child support, custody, etc. I am very grateful to Derek Burks for the what he was able to do for my children and I. I would recommend his services to anyone who finds themselves in need of a divorce attorney.
