    As a former state prosecutor, I worked with and against Derek on a variety of matters. Derek is among the finest trial lawyers, and without question the best criminal attorney, I've had the pleasure of working with. Derek consistently exercises the best judgment in his cases, whether it be to recommend that his client negotiate a plea or to take the case to trial. He is effective both as a counsel and an advocate.

    I was hesitant to mark "Excellent" in all categories for fear you'd assume I am merely a personal friend supporting a good evaluation for his advantage. I am a friend because we have known each other probably 15 years now and worked together in the past, but we are not social friends. From my vantage point I've been able to observe him over the years and I have nothing but respect for his abilities and capabilities and can tell you he is very well respected by all who know him.
