Mr. Medina represented me well in my case regarding custody and my parenting plan revision. I am a single non-custodial father that just wanted fair and equitable time with my kids. Their mother and I were working off an outdated parenting plan that had many holes in it. Derek was very good at helping promote fair change that was adopted into the new plan. We went to trial over differences due to the kids moving further away and Mr. Medina fought to minimize my pick-up travel distance. When the kids mother refused visitation after parenting plan revision, Derek ensured contempt was charged and i have had no visitation no-shows since. He is aggressive in court and knows how to put it all together to give proper representation. If provided good documentation by his clients, I am confident Mr. Medina can help you to reach a fair outcome that is in the best interest of your children.

Mr. Medina represented me for 14 months in a divorce case. In that time period he never filed discovery or iinterrogatories that could have helped my case in mediation. Eight weeks before trial he informed me that if I did not give an additional $5000 he would not represent at trial. Mr. Medina is the worst lawyer I have ever had.

Over the course of many years, I have required legal counsel in different states where I have resided. Therefore, I feel qualified in commenting on the quality of the legal services I have received from Mr. Derek Medina.
I was, and still am, totally impressed with Mr. Derek Medinaâ€™s commitment to providing his clients with outstanding services (the best I have ever received). Mr. Medinaâ€™s responsiveness has been the most prompt that I have experienced from ANY legal counsel. Another trait of Mr. Medinaâ€™s that I feel is important to mention is his sincerity and focus about alleviating or solving his clientâ€™s issues. I am completely satisfied with the legal services I have received from Mr. Medina. Through his patient efforts, a very stressful and vexing, long-term problem was resolved.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mr. Derek Medina as legal counsel.

Derek Medina is a first class Family Law attorney who is dedicated to serving the needs of his clients and bringing order and guidance in what is oftentimes is one of the most difficult periods in individuals lives. From my personal observations, he is respected in the courts and very familiar with the day-to-day mechanics of our legal system. Moreover, he does not hesitate to challenge or back down from opposing counsels and works diligently not just for his clients, but with them.
