I was extremely pleased with Derek's handling of this IRS Tax problem. Even though I tried several time to respond to the IRS's letters of unpaid taxes from 2010, it became apparent that the IRS would not listen to a lowly taxpayer and that more 'horsepower' was going to be needed to convince the IRS that NO taxes were owed but rather the problem rested with BBVA Compass Bank for not reporting 1098 mortgage interest paid and incorrectly reporting 1099 Interest earned to the IRS. A great job acting as my representative with the IRS and with keeping me informed on the status of where things stood.

I sought counsel on a number of tax related topics and Derek gave
very honest and comprehensive advice. I have total confidence in his
proficiency and guidance.

Positively one of the best attorneys we've worked with. Has an uncanny knack for making a complex legal problem/opportunity understandable to management. A brilliant legal mind coupled with savvy business experience applicable to both the public and private sectors. He's a highly effective problem solver and researcher who takes pride in delivering the best solutions for his client. He adds a new dimension to an executive management team because he combines infinite legal wisdom with an understanding of the client's goals to formulate a plan to achieve the best possible outcome.
