I don't think I can say enough great things about Derek Ewin.

He did come highly recommended from a friend also in the legal profession and so, for someone without such contacts, hopefully this review will help introduce you, too.

Derek is a good person. He's a straight shooter, so you should have a high degree of confidence in his assessment of the outcome, and feel assured that it is probably not as bad as it seems. While nobody is ever overjoyed at facing a difficult ordeal, I'm happy with the result knowing it could have been much worse.


Derek has defended me 3 times. The process went smooth I never had to go to jail. Derek was at every court date. More than an attorney, Derek helped me to make changes in my life that will prevent this from happening again.

Derek is a great lawyer. I am very thankful for all his help. He guided me through everything. His assistant Claudia was also very helpful answering all my questions. I WOULD DIFINITELY RECOMMEND HIM.


Derek was courteous throughout the entire process, answering questions and providing the information pertinent to my case. Though the case was a bit stressful, I was able to relax a bit knowing Derek was working on my case.

Mr. Ewin has represented me on two cases we were very happy with the results. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer he represented me on a DUI he was able to reduce the charges to a wet and wreckless. A year and a half later I was transferred from another jail on a violation of probation charge, he represented me the next day and I went home that evening.

Not only that but he even charged less than quoted. If you are looking for a great lawyer at a reasonable price this would be the lawyer to represent you.

Thank You Mr. Ewin


Mr. Ewin was very professional and easy to work with. The advertisement banner he has that reads "Experienced, Aggressive, Criminal Defense with Integrity" very much fit the bill when it came to the work he did for us. Absolutely recommended!


Derek was not only responsive to my case but he took the time to listen, really listen, to my issues, fears, concerns, expectations and after a few sessions with him, I was fully at ease with the situation and had total confidence in his ability to represent me fairly, properly and completely in a court of law and he delivered on all counts.
