  • Best DUI attorney in San Antonio if you ask me!

    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.

  • He takes care of his cases and clients seriously.
    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.

  • Mr. Emmons stayed in constant contact with me and advised me how to proceed

    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.

  • If I never need a lawyer he is my first, and last call
    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!!!

  • He was always considerate of our questions concerning the law and how it pertained to his situation.
    Derek Emmons is an outstanding attorney who treated my son and me with not only respect but compassion. When representing my son he was always considerate of our questions concerning the law and how it pertained to his situation. He represented my son to the very best of his ability and my son received an outcome he was more than pleased with

  • He knows what he is doing; he knows criminal defense

    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.

  • He was very comfortable in the tense situation and allowed us to stay calm.

    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.
