Asset Today, Liability Tomorrow: Alia Derrick Speaks at 2016 Frost Bank Workshop 

Salaried Today, Hourly Employee Tomorrow. 


Super Lawyer's Rated - Texas Rising Star, Former Supreme Court of Texas Briefing Attorney, and Alumni of UT Austin School of Law and Rice University Leads Derrick Law.  And She’s on a Mission

 . . .to distinguish the firm by championing a firm culture dedicated to the client’s best interest and bottom-line.  Alia L. Adkins-Derrick's years of practice at a large law firm, time as a former Supreme Court of Texas briefing attorney, and passion for helping clients resolve problems efficiently and effectively, led her to conclude that, for clients who wish to protect their interest and bottom line but not sacrifice service, a more focused, client-centered practice is a far better option.  As the firm’s Managing Partner, Ms. Adkins-Derrick, is serious about building strong partnerships with clients. This is significant for two reasons.  First, it means that, under her leadership, Derrick Law attorneys will strive to understand clients’ unique business models or professional career needs.  This means, secondly, that clients will receive legal and business advice from counsel who are better equipped to identify more effective solutions that actually address client concerns and meet their needs.  Ms. Adkins-Derrick calls it the “Derrick Law Difference” or “D2.”. . .

Why Clients Hire Us.

What We're Proud Of.


Ask our clients what made them choose us and you’re likely to get many different answers. There’s one thing they’ll all agree on though—Derrick Law is here to serve.


 “…on your team and looking out for your best interest.

"I’ve worked with [Derrick Law] for . . . months, and I’m very happy with the working relationship.  Alia Derrick is really in tune with the needs of her clients... particularly the stress and constant change of being a start-up. She’s very responsive to emails and turns things around quickly when you need it. I also very much appreciate that she’s really on your team and looking out for your best interest. I’ve talked to too many lawyers where it’s apparent they just want me on their roster to sell me everything and anything. [Attorney Derrick] actually is the opposite- she actually takes the time to figure out where we’re exposed and explains the risks without being pushy or a “Debbie downer.” She’s also looking out for ways to help us minimize our costs and even introduced us to potential new partners . . . . I love working with Attorney Derrick - bottom line, she’s a great partner for the long-term: trustworthy, knowledgeable, and caring."

 --Co-Founder & President of Tech Company.
