Let me first say that previously I never had much exposer to the legal profession nor had any reason to consult an attorney. That was until I received a letter from another attorney with legal demands. I was referred to Derek from a friend and let me say that he was a life saver and really helped us navigate through this mess that was ultimately settled. The case was not quite yet a lawsuit dealing with real estate disclosure issues but was well on it's way to becoming one. He stated it was not his expertise but would be willing to help out. Help out was an understatement! He quickly contacted the other attorney and got to the bottom of their legal demands as well as postponed any formal legal action. He thoroughly researched certain prudent aspects of real estate law in regards to contracts and disclosures and presented apposing council with numerous flaws and holes in their arguments. He morally stuck to his principals and utilized years of legal experience to ultimately avoid the court room and mediation. His collective calm was very reassuring and his advice throughout the process was right on. I feel this situation was handled the best possibly way and closure was reached to my utmost satisfaction, as I know Derek had only my interests at heart. I can only imagine a case involving his true legal expertise. I would highly recommend Emgee and Associates to anyone seaking solid, caring, legal expertise.
