Attention: Although Derrick welcomes phone calls, letters, and emails from persons in need of legal advice, please be aware that Derrick owes no duty to represent you unless and until he agrees to be your attorney. He cannot agree to be your attorney until he assesses your claims and conducts a conflict of interest check to make sure he is not prohibited from being your attorney. No attorney-client relationship will be formed until you meet with the attorney in person and agree to the terms of his representation in writing.

Also, please do not use your workplace email account or any other means of communication that a third party could access, as that could destroy the legal privileges of attorney-client communication. Also be wary of your personal information security, and consider taking steps to improve your security against other parties in your case.
