About Derek

Learn Derek’s areas of practice.

Practice area

I went to law school at the University of Colorado. While there, I was on the International Law Moot Court team, and served as an associate editor of Colorado Law Review. Fun times, fun times.


I started practicing law as an intern at the DA's office. After a while, I went to the other side of the aisle to criminal defense. At the same time, I got my feet wet in bankruptcy, contracts, family law, and debt collection defense. I spent two years representing people in disability cases before I decided to start my own firm in 2014.


I now specialize in representing people who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. People who are overburdened with debt or have been harassed by debt collectors need legal help, and I'm here to help them. People who can no longer work because of health issues need their disability benefits, and I'm here to help them. I've dedicated my entire practice to helping people in need, at very reasonable rates.

Social Security
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Freeman represent me in a SSA (Social Security Claim.) He was knowable and handled my claim with professional aggression. We won our claim, and it has benefited me to this day. I would highly recommend his service.

Derek Freeman represented/is representing me on a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case /
He has been very professional and seemed genuinely concerned about my situation as i just came from a very bad experience with another attorney that has me despising most of those in that profession. That attorney's name is Timothy J. Priebe Jr. Esquire tho I haven't figured why the esquire is there at all. Mr. Freeman was very good about staying in touch with me and being totally honest with me which is a character trait that I value very highly.

Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
Derek was incredibly professional and quick to return calls. I had many questions during this process and he never failed to call back and assure me that things were handled. It was straight forward and no surprises. I appreciated his expertise. Thank you!

Very Supportive
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Freeman when I was going through some very hard financial times. Mr. Freeman always reassured me and kept me up to date on what was going on with my case. I feel that it looked at me as a person and not someone that was an idiot for the situation that I was in! I would recommend Mr. Freeman to all my family and friends!!

Excellent Experience!
I was in a very rough financial spot and was stressed out about my situation, but Mr. Freeman was there to assure me how the outcome could improve. He was very understanding and knew what steps that had to be taken. He was very personable and friendly, fast and effecient. Not too mention his rates were very fair and less then all the other proffesionals that i spoke with regarding my situation. Thank you Mr. Freeman!!

Help during a difficult time
Derek was my attorney for my Bankruptcy. I was in a position of feeling very ashamed of were I was financially and Derek helped me and provided services in a manner of absolute professionalism and kindness.

hire someone else
Derek did not do a good job on my SSDI case. He failed to keep me informed. He failed to respond to communications from me and the SSA. He failed to provide evidence to the SSA. He failed to inform me of missing medical records until I showed up at the hearing.
