The BEST of the BEST
I can not even believe I got so lucky when I hired Derrick Thomas Hogan to be my attorney without knowing much about him. He was so over the too amazing in every regard that I ended up hiring him twice. He is such a brilliant lawyer with an excellent work ethic. He is entirely professional and has a beautiful heart to match how unbelievable he is. From the minute we hired him, this attorney had an abundance of knowledge and was kept in close contact with us every step of the way. Derrick Thomas Hogan is one in a million. His greatest strengths include being trustworthy, brilliant, and dedicated. He is the best attorney I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is worth every penny. How can we clone this attorney? He is the absolute best attorney money can buy. Do not hesitate to call anyone else. You will be so lucky if he takes your case. As a teacher, I give him an A+ in every regard.

Having the opportunity to meet someone of great worth at a time of a very "trying" time.
I am a woman who has never had to seek the counsel of a lawyer in a distressed situation. I was in an incident which forced me to attain a lawyer. Because of a lack of experience in this type of situation, I felt scared and totally alone. I went on the Internet and just looked up lawyers and found a site that stated what their mision statement was in regards to the operation of their law firm and I immediately felt "hope". I contacted them and was put in contact with a wonderful person named Derrick. I was very distraught at the time of our conversation and he never let me feel ashamed of the event. He was very professional, kind and took the time to listen with much patience. He explained the entire process to me with great diligence and understanding of the situation I was in at the time. I guess the most important thing I want to stess at this time is that in today's world, it isn't often you meet someone who takes the time to listen and respond compassionately. Derrick did all this and more. You know, it is true when people say that "something good can come out of a terrible situation. For me this was true when I came to meet and know Derrick Hogan. My situation was resolved with positive ending but most of all, my life was blessed by a young asttorney, Derrick. All I can end with is to relate with all sincerity that this attorney will bless any law firm and its clients that he associates himself with great success and prosperity. He is a man of integrity. Thank you for having this man on your staff so he could help me go through a tough situation with peace and confidence .
