Derek was one of the trial lawyers who represented us on a case regarding a work accident. Easy to work with. Very detail oriented and thorough.

Derek Merman is a consummate professional, he communicated with us at every turn and treated us with dignity and respect. Mr. Merman always took the time to listen and explained every step of the way. Mr. Merman and/or his staff was always on hand to answer any questions we had or supply us with information. We always felt like we were a part of the process. Our case was handled with the utmost satisfaction and I recommend Derek Merman to everyone in need of legal services.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Derek Merman is incredibly tenacious and hard working. He knows his way around the courtroom and is not afraid to battle for the little guy. I collaborated with Derek on a few cases where his clients had corresponding criminal matters. His clients absolutely love him, and he goes above and beyond for them. Most recently he obtained a multimillion dollar judgment for a client who was injured after a tire explosion. Despite the billion dollar empire battling Derek, he obtained an amazing outcome for his client. I know the client will never forget him. I am always eager to work with him whenever presented with the opportunity.
