There are literally a handful of people for whom I would take a bullet. This list includes my family and a few friends. Honestly, in my wildest dreams, I would never have contemplated that I would add an acquaintance, much less a lawyer to this list.
Derek Ewin has given me my life back - it's a good thing too because it would have ruined Christmas for my wife and three kids. My family and I knew I was innocent, and the first person I had initially hired was not proactive and was completely ineffective. I was lucky enough to have my sister and the rest my family advocating for me, and monitoring my first attorney's activities.
That is when Derek came into the picture. My sister, who lives 3,000 miles away, then referred me to Derek. It may sound incredible, but she, as well as the rest of my family, and her entire church, prayed that I would be led to somebody who would help to redeem me. She claims it took her less than two minutes to search for attorneys in this area, when something told her to give Derek's number to me.
Obviously I wouldn't be writing this if my outcome had been different. You can trust him, and in fact, you should trust him.
Derek is an expert at navigating the legal playing field. I'd also add he is widely respected not just by his peers, but also by the courts. And deservedly so. He communicates in a calm, crisp fashion, outlining every option available to you. It is wise to adhere to his advice, because he is the consummate expert on the law. He is a true optimist, yet a realist at the same time. He will give you the best and worst case scenarios - but keep your faith, and he will have faith with you. I am not a very religious man, but I truly believe the Lord works through him.
Bottom line - If you believe you are innocent, don't give up, tell him the truth, and you really couldn't have a better professional on your side.
