Meet Derek W. Freeman

Skilled Colorado Springs Disability & Bankruptcy Lawyer undefined

When Derek Freeman was in graduate school and working toward a PhD, he got to know a few classmates who were attending law school as well. During this time, he realized that what they were working toward was much more worthwhile and that although he enjoyed what he was studying and learning, it would likely lead to a career stuffed in an office or a library. He decided to pursue a field where he would be able to provide a service that people needed and at which he could excel. This is why he chose to become a Colorado Springs disability and bankruptcy attorney.

Derek earned his JD from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado. While there, he distinguished himself as an Associate Editor of the Colorado Law Review and as a member of the Jessup International Law Moot Court Team. Since earning his law degree, Derek has represented clients in many areas of the law, including family law, criminal defense, landlord-tenant disputes, bankruptcy, and Social Security Disability. He has represented clients in many arenas, including jury trials, bench trials, administrative hearings, and appeals.

Prior to entering the legal field, Derek studied Asian Studies at Brigham Young University. He also earned a master's degree in Asian Art History at the University of Kansas.

Derek is a member of the El Paso Bar Association and the Colorado Bar Association, and is licensed to practice in the state of Colorado and at the United States District Court of Colorado.
