Review Derek Devermont
  • JURY SAID I'M NOT GUILTY!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a DUI & DWI client

    I was arrested for DUI and hit and run in 2010. Because it happened in simi valley my case ended up in Ventura County. Everyone knows how hard ventura is on this type of stuff. I was well over .08 (too embarassed to say how much) and terrified. The DA told us no deals and if I wasn't going to say I was guilty than the only option was go to trial. SO we had a trial. Derek was amazing. After the DA was done talking to the cop on the stand, I thought I had made and wasted time and money by having a trial. Then Derek started asking questions and the cop's story fell apart. Then the DA had some expert get up and say I was drunk. Derek took her down too. The prosecution even had a witness and documents they introduced last minute without telling us. Derek used all this to our advantage. After it wall went down, I heard the jury say the magic words "not guilty". We won! The DA was so unhappy she stormed out afterwards. NOT GUILTY! dEREK IS THE BEST LAWYER EVER!

    Amazing amazing lawyer. Answers every phone call, takes ALL your stress away and makes you feel very comfortable. I was extremely worried given the charges being held against me and knew I needed the best of the best. Family friends recommended us to Derek and the second we met I knew he'd take care of everyday. He's very persistent and handled everything professionally. Before I even knew it, after Derek took over, ALL the charges were dropped. You don't want to take a risk with whatever problems you have and with Derek, you won't have anything to worry about.

    I was pulled over for weaving. The officer made me get out of the car and do a bunch of exercises. Then I he took me to the station and I blew a .09. Derek Got the case reduced to a dry reckless and avoided even having a dmv hearing by getting a "not guilty" on the second part of my dui. I didn't have my license suspended and I don't have a dui.

    I received my DUI back in September 2009, with a BAC of .13 in the City of San Fernando. I didn't know what to do and I was not sure if it was necessary to have a lawyer. So, a friend of mine, who I have known and trusted for years, referred me to Derek Devermont and I immediately made an appointment to meet with him so I can get this over with.

    When I met with Derek to consult about my DUI case, he thoroughly explained to me the steps I needed to take, consequences that will happen while my case is pending (suspended license, losing driving privileges, AA meetings, DUI classes...), potential outcome/result once my case is finalized and the overall advantage of having a lawyer. Then I hired him to represent me with full confidence and he took everything off my hands.

    To make a long story short, I attended a mandatory court hearing that would determine the outcome of my case. I did not have any high expectations considering my BAC was .13 and had aggressive prosecutors. After Derek and the DA settled an agreement to my case, I was extremely surprised and satisfied with my result. Derek somehow got it down to a DRY reckless (non-alcohol related) and no community service! In the end, I paid my court fee and called it a day! No more hassle!

    As for my overall experience, I am highly content and satisfied with Derek Devermont's service. He is very professional, honest and attentive to my questions and concerns. I definitely would recommend Derek to anyone who is unfortunate with a DUI.

    After being cited for a Misdemeanor DUI, I was influenced by many to just face the consequences because “hiring a lawyer never works out in your benefit”. I was terrified and confused until I found Derek Devermont so I decided to take my chances. He assured me that I didn’t have to worry anymore, and even at times where I wanted to give up he fought harder. My BAC was .11 but Derek managed to get my citation reduced to a dry reckless...I would highly recommend him to anyone!

    Derek didn't help me he SAVED ME! After getting my DUI removed off my record seemed like a shot in the dark. Thankfully I chose Derek to represent me. He was very personable and seemed to know all the ins and outs. This is one of those lawyers that gives it his all for his clients. He definitely seemed to go the extra step in fighting my case.

    Professional, well organized, and extremely brilliant. He went great lengths to understand my case, the charges, and the evidence. In fact, the charges were dropped because of the due diligence that Derek did on his part. This kept my cost way down since it did not go to trial. I would recommend him to anybody. He is on my speedial in case I need him for any reason.

    In every case Derek has represented on my behalf, not only were the results positive, but beyond expectations. He keeps me informed of all phases of the case, treats me respect and dignity. Most of all he has a great deal of confidence and knowledge in the legal system.
