This includes developing a strategic and replicable approach for defending cases that involve minimally invasive surgical procedures or percutaneous discectomies and disc decompressions by establishing defense strategies to attack the science as well as the billing under “Letters of Protection” as excessive and unreasonable.
A Miami native, Derek earned a dual bachelor’s in English literature and international and comparative studies from the University of Miami before going on to pursue his juris doctor at St. Thomas University School of Law.
