    Derek is a great attorney and a great person. I first met him while I was in law school and he was always willing to spend time to share his knowledge. In my years of practice since, this has not changed. I don't generally practice criminal law and when I have a question related to criminal defense, Derek is the first one I turn to. His responses are quick, accurate, well-reasoned and most importantly well-explained. His vast experience in both criminal prosecution and defense make him a great resource. I don't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and clients and I'm proud to publicly endorse him as well.

  • Stefanie Marie Dorn

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Derek when he was both a prosecutor at the Seattle City Attorney's Office and as a criminal defense attorney. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge as far as legal issues, works his cases incredibly hard, and is passionate and understanding. He is a mentor to many young lawyers and any client would be very lucky to work with him.

  • Henry King Chae

    I endorse this lawyer. I worked with Derek Smith at the City Attorney's office in Seattle when we were both prosecutors. He was one of our senior top trial attorneys in the office and for good reason; his trial skills are excellent and he has a strong command of the law, case law and procedural rules. He was an amazing mentor to me and other young attorneys coming up the ranks. He is very personable and articulate and his talent is really evident in the courtroom as he is able to work the room and be very persuasive with judges and jurors. As a defense attorney, Derek now has knowledge of how the other side works and he is a force to be reckon with, prosecutors will have a hard time with him as he is a fierce advocate and fighter for his clients. I highly recommend my colleague. He is one of our region's best attorneys.
