Never Derek
Derek was my lawyer from June 19 to Jan 20. Derek accomplished nothing in my case at all. I wanted a temporary custody arrangement and instead they drew up papers for what I wanted permanently but not even what I wanted. Then finally got that straight. Sent the papers over to my ex’s lawyer and that was all the actual paperwork they did for me. After not doing anything at all for me except getting me a visit here and there I was billed another $2k. When my ex’s lawyer decided they were about to file a motion Derek quit. Derek never returns phone calls or responds to emails but will charge you for send the email or making the phone call even if he doesn’t respond to you. 7 months of being my lawyer and we never even got in front of a judge. I do not recommend Derek to anyone at all.
