I would absolutely recommend Derek Asbury to anyone looking for a criminal attorney. He is very upfront, honest, precise, and thourough. He is very compassionate about what he does. His staff is wonderful at keeping in touch with you and updating you on your case. Derek is the best criminal lawyer around. I was impressed by how well he handled my case. I would not have trusted my case to anyone else.

I hired Derek to help me get custody of my daughter from my ex-wife and he did just that. He was always quick to return my calls or if I needed him in my op cases he was right there for me. All I can say is he is worth every penny. Hands down best lawyer in peoria,il

I retained Derek for a Family Court case involving my children. At the begining of my case I retained a different lawyer, who showed no respect for me or my situation and did NOTHING to help me. Mr. Asbury put me at ease, and was the perfect "dog" for my fight!!!! Derek not only won my case, but continues to represent me to this day. Derek does care about the people he represents and makes that obvious. I've delt with attorneys who were money oriented, and cared NOTHING for the families they represented. Derek really does care, and I would and have recommended him to numerous people!!!

I hired Mr. Asbury, as he came of personable, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Turns out he wasn't working for me but against me. I went to court after having talked to him on the phone and him telling what my deal would be, then when I got to court, was completly a different and worse deal. no fine became $500 and was told I would get court supervision since I had no prior record now I have 2 years probation. The worst part was after exiting the courtroom the states attourney has him tell me to make a check for a $500 donation to crimestoppers. Turnedd out it was a scam. I could have done a better job having my cat represent me. This man is a liar and a scam artist. I dont know how he can sleep at night
