      "In my personal and business life I have dealt with many attorneys but none have been as efficient, effective or professional as Mr. Emmons."

      My daughter was represented by Derek Emmons. She was unjustly extradited from New York City. Mr. Emmons took up her cause and stayed in constant contact with me and advised me how to proceed in the collection of various documents from New York City courts and probation department. These documents that were collected proved the illegality of the detention and extradition of my daughter. In my personal and business life I have dealt with many attorneys but none have been as efficient, effective or professional as Mr. Emmons. Mr. Emmons presented the facts to the District Attorney and as a result the District Attorney determined there was no case and my daughter was released. This testament is the least I can do to thank Mr. Emmons for bringing my daughter home to me. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

      "Mr.Emmons is the best lawyer I've ever hired."

      Mr.Emmons is the best lawyer I've ever hired. I had 2 misdemeanor cases against me that would've charged me as a felony this man is the best. He got all my cases dismissed and saved my life definitely trust this man with anything and will refer him to anyone seeking one of the best lawyers in San Antonio. This man handles his clients extremely well and is a wonderful understanding lawyer. Anyone needing to hire a lawyer you won't go wrong with Mr.Emmonds defending you. If i ever need someone to defend me or my family in future cases will be hiring Mr.Emmonds again hands down

      "Mr. Emmons is an excellent attorney"

      Mr. Emmons is an excellent attorney. After a failure of representation from a prior attorney that resulted in my case being upgraded from a class B misdemeanor to a 3rd degree felony charge, I contacted Mr. Emmons. He was able to fight for me and make a plea deal with the prosecution office to drop the felony charge back down to a class B misdemeanor. Mr. Emmons was always very honest and forth coming on what was happening with my case and what to expect. I don’t plan on ever needing another criminal defense attorney, but if I do Mr. Emmons will be my first call.

      "Always available to discuss your concerns about your case. Always promptly gets back to you to answer your questions."

      Amazing attorney! Always available to discuss your concerns about your case. Always promptly gets back to you to answer your questions. He was able to get my felony DUI 3 reduced to DUI 2nd misdemeanor somehow when I had given up all hope. Saved my life! Didn't take any crap from Bexar County district attorney's office. Best DUI attorney in San Antonio if you ask me! Call Mr. Emmons office now if you are in any trouble with the law. They can and will help you.

      "I had a Positive experience with Mr. Emmons"

      With a distinct background, I had a Positive experience with Mr. Emmons. He Took my difficult Case with Confidence, got it dismissed and kept me from being a Repeat Offender. Didn’t think any one can get me out of this case and I just knew I was going back to prison with my 3rd strike. I highly RECOMMEND his Services. ,RV

      "One of the main things that stuck with me is that he remember "everything" I had expressed to him two months after I had made the statements. It showed me he not only listened, but cared and did not see me as another dollar in his bank account."

      The first thing all clients want is an intelligent, knowledgeable lawyer to represent us. The second is a lawyer who truly cares and actually listens to your "story" and concerns. Lastly, a lawyer that is compassionate and understanding of your situation. Derek is all of these. From day one he let me know his plan, followed when there was pertinent information to pass along. He has even taken calls/text on the weekends when I had additional concerns. One of the main things that stuck with me is that he remember "everything" I had expressed to him two months after I had made the statements. It showed me he not only listened, but cared and did not see me as another dollar in his bank account. He was "exceptional." I hope I never talk to him again (for obvious reasons LOL), if I never need a lawyer he is my first, and last call. Thanks Derek!!!

      "I'm so thankful I had found Derek Emmons, and have him as an attorney for my fiance for criminal charges. He was able to dismiss his charges like he planned on doing."

      I highly recommend Mr. Emmons to any person, friend or loved one facing federal charges. Federal charges are complicated, broad in spectrum, and accompany long sentences. I'm so thankful I had found Derek Emmons, and have him as an attorney for my fiance for criminal charges. He was able to dismiss his charges like he planned on doing. Derek kept in regular contact with us on every step. If I had any questions, or if my fiancee had any questions for him, he always had an answer. I truly recommend Mr. Emmons as your attorney. He takes care of his cases and clients seriously.

      "This man became my rock throughout the next year and a half of criminal investigations and legal proceedings."

      In the middle of the worst nightmare a mother could imagine, I found Derek Emmons through an internet search on the day my son was involved in a horrible situation. This man became my rock throughout the next year and a half of criminal investigations and legal proceedings.

      I met with Derek within a few hours of my son’s arrest, and he listened to me and made sense of my frantic ramblings. His calm demeanor, interest in the case, and his knowledge and advice on the law assured me that I had found the right attorney to represent my son. At the conclusion of our meeting, he visited with my son at the police station and provided his counsel on the immediate situation.

      Mr. Emmons:
      * Answers his phone and/or returns calls promptly. (A simple thing, but I have found this rare in the legal profession.)
      * Is knowledgable of the law and was able to navigate the case through the legal system to our best advantage.
      * Never dropped the ball. He persistently worked with the investigators and the DA’s office to ensure my son’s voice was heard.
      * Always kept us informed on the status of the case.
      * Was able to get the charges reduced to the lowest possible level.
      * Negotiated a fair plea bargain that we were comfortable with.
      * Visited my son at the county jail throughout the year and a half of proceedings, sometimes with no other reason than just to check in with him.
      * Still calls me periodically to see how my son is doing – even though the proceedings concluded about a year ago.

      In the event that I would ever again need to hire an attorney for a criminal matter, I would immediately go to Derek Emmons. He is a good man and he cares about his clients. He knows what he is doing; he knows criminal defense. It was a huge blessing to find him on one of the worst days of my life. I’m so thankful that I did.

      "The absolute best that I could ask for."

      Facing jail time for multiple charges that I accumulated in a very short time. I didn't know what to do. Charged with felony family violence during a very contentious time in my personal life. I found Mr. Emmons. He was very professional and very attentive to my case and assured me I wouldn't see the inside of a cell. Got me off house arrest, back to work, and ultimately, a few years probation. Which, with my cases was the absolute best that I could ask for. I appreciate his attentiveness and care for my case and my well being. THANK YOU Mr. Emmons!

      "I hope you never need an attorney to defend you. If you do, you need to give Derek Emmons a call. He will do everything to get a fair outcome."

      In the middle of the worst nightmare a mother could imagine, I found Derek We were very fortunate to find the law offices of Derek Emmons. Our family had been accused of a very serious crime in a different state. We had no idea what to do. After contacting several attorneys in San Antonio and not receiving any call back, Mr. Emmons’ office called us back.

      They listened to us and agreed to take the case. His advice and recommendations were spot on. He was very comfortable in the tense situation and allowed us to stay calm.

      He researched the facts and worked with the proper authorities to make sure that everything turned out OK.

      I hope you never need an attorney to defend you. If you do, you need to give Derek Emmons a call. He will do everything to get a fair outcome.

      "He handled my case with professionalism"

      I enthusiastically recommend Derek Emmons to anyone with legal needs in his areas of practice. He handled my case with professionalism, provided me with clear expectations throughout an unfamiliar process, and advocated tirelessly on my behalf to ensure the best possible outcome.
