    Derek went above and beyond for us. We had a complicated civil matter involving insurance, lawsuits, and adverse lawyers. Derek handled everything for us, and he made us feel reassured throughout the process. Derek handled this matter in a very short time frame and secured a very favorable result. Throughout the process, Derek was immediately responsive to our questions and his charges were less than half of what another lawyer quoted us. In sum, we highly, highly recommend Derek Nelsen.
