I remember when i first came to derk i was very nerveous and afraid; what got me sold is that he mentioned, everything is going to be OK. Derk is great and helped me through two of very complex chases at the same time; a class A 911 Emerg. call and a class C domestic violence case; both on separate courts. All of these were happening during a pending divorce process. he was understanding and sympathetic. I highly recommend him for any criminal case.

When an employment background check came back with a trumped up charge, as well as an active warrent, that I was completely unaware of from 2010, Derk Wadas was my saving grace! Within a week of hiring Derk, he was able to not only resolve this case from another state, which by the way, several other attorney's said could not be done, he also resolved it in a way that may save my potential job offer! If you are in need of a highly intelligent attorney that will actually listen to your situation without judgement, keep in close contact with you throughout the duration of your case and get you results you need to move forward with your life, look no further.

Very professional. Got my case no billed! Absolutely thankful that I found Derk and hired him to represent me. I recommend him highly. Thank you so much Derk.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Derk for a number of years. I have seen him work in the Courtroom as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Derk's professionalism is quite evident when you see him conversing with clients, prosecutors and other defense attorneys.
