Very professional and knowledgeable. Mr. DeRienzo and his staff consistently display a top degree of care and respect and are always pleasant to talk with. Very reasonable rates. Highly recommended

Cary Lundberg, Personal injury Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer. I represented a co-defendant in a gang case involving a stolen motorcycle in which Mr. DeRienzo spearheaded the identification of issues with the police investigation. The judge remanded the case to the grand jury and the prosecutor ultimately agreed to dismiss the case. Mr. DeRienzo's endeavor in this case truly resulted in justice.
Shawn Hamp, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. DeRienzo over the past decade as opposing counsel in my years as a former prosecutor, and as co-counsel in several criminal defense cases involving co-defendants. Mr. DeRienzo possesses the rare talents of being an exceptional litigator in trial, and having excellent legal writing skills in appellate practice.
