Yes he is an attorney,but not a shark !!
Mr. Derricot has proven to be astute,punctual and moralific in his dealings with me concerning my labor law issue. It is refreshing to know of a attorney who is interested in case facts and his ability to efficiently assist in lieu of only seeing the amount of funds that he can extract from the hurting victim preyed upon after having been employed by WA DSHS.

The lawyer to go for Debt Collection Lawsuits!
Mr. Derricott helps us handling a debt lawsuit brought against us. From the initial consultation, he shows that he knows and have been working quite a bit with cases involving debt lawsuit from creditors. We've met him once, and he is very friendly and helpful. He explained very patiently on what to expect on our case and from his service. He's always responsive to our emails and/or calls, and always keep us informed on the status of our case. Mr. Derricott helped us through the negotiation process with the other side and sees through our case into a complete satisfying conclusion. I would recommend his service if you have a debt collection lawsuit against you. He's truly made this case easy on us.

Mark and I worked on a matter that was large to me but quite small for him. I was the victim of odometer fraud and because the seller was an individual this would not generate much business for Mark. He helped me anyhow and I ended up with a very favorable settlement. His integrity was evident in that he was honestly seeking a good resolution to the case. Had I needed to go to court or pursue the matter further I would not have hesitated working with Mark. Highly recommended!

attorney review
I emailed my situation to Mark from his website. He called me back within an hour I think. He invited me in for a free consultation. My case was involving consumer fraud and he did an excellent job of researching, and kept me well Informed of all my options . Mark was very courteous and professional. He seems passionate about his work and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Mark if you're looking for an attorney.

I hate lawyers, but I love Mark Derricott!
I hate lawyers, and let's be honest. Who likes them? But I love Mark Derricott. You need a great lawyer. Like bad tasting medicine that cures your business woes. Like immunization so you won't get sick in the future. Like healthcare so you don't loose everything when unforeseen things happen to you or your business. This is why Mark takes care of my business and my personal matters. He's a smart, young, articulate, funny and professional attorney who gets stuff done in time. And he works within my budget. I can highly recommend him and have in the past to several other of my business contacts, who all have been very satisfied with his council. Hire him, you won't be disappointed!

M. Derricot, A great Attorney to Work With
Mark was friendly, accessible and worked diligently on my case. He made it easy for me not focus on the case and continue my day to day. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Olympia area needing legal assistance.

Mark is the right choice.
Working with lawyers is pretty much always something I dread - they speak a different language, and don't always give you the best advice, instead opting for the cautious advice. Mark thoroughly explains all of the options and recommends a particular course based on what's best for my interests and my company. I go to Mark for my every legal need, as well as for consulting on best practices and strategies for running a successful business. My company's success relies on Mark being there to protect and guide us.
