I have dealt with various lawyers in the past over a verity of issues from divorce, probate, custody and yes even criminal with various individuals. I have found Mr. Elliotte to be both professional and efficiant and I might add that his fees appear to be very resonable.
If I, rather when I need an attorney in the future, I will most definately see if this man is available for the job.

Mr. Elliot is prompt in returning correspondence. I have never once called or emailed and had to wait days or weeks for a response. He is truly passionate about his job and his clients rights. As a court appointed attorney those traits seem to be very rare. He never made me feel like I should just say guilty ,take probation, I cant do anything else for you like every other court appointed attorneys I've dealt with. He is very knowledgable and believes in your rights being protected. Not to mention he never made me feel like I was just another criminal. He treated me like I was innocent and proved I was. A very likable guy. If you need a good lawyer, Hes your guy

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Derrick and I practice in the same community so we cross paths often. Whether working a case together or on the same side, or opposing one another. Derrick is one of the most passionate attorneys I know. He will definitely fight for his clients. I am proud to know Derrick as a friend and colleague.
