|IL||Active And Authorized To Practice Law||1988||11/21/2016|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a specific period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Derke’s comment: “Working round the clock I was reckless with one particular expense entry (not sure where it came from) then compounded and error with an error. It was a good lesson for me to learn (that I have to care for the whole practice and not just winning).”

Derke is a extremely knowledgable lawyer with significant experience in contracts, easements and agreements. He is extremely easy to approach, great sense of humor and is accessible and has worked hard at fostering a relationship. He is very responsive and I know he has my back whenever I may be in a pickle. He is easy to relate to and makes sure that everything being worked on or talked about is in our best interest. We have gained a great working relationship and he knows my tendencies and thought process on issues and respects that. At the same time he is not afraid to let me know when my thoughts or concerns are headed in the wrong direction. He provides terrfifc information, explains the elements of the issue in terms I can comprehend, he makes sure I am fully aware and disclosed of the matter at hand and I am confident when legal matters come across my desk.
