Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

Derek Andrews, an attorney with Nave Law Firm, has a demonstrated track record of litigating cases in the courtroom. He prides himself on being a young, intelligent and aggressive attorney who is motivated to actively advocate for each of his clients. He approaches each of his client’s cases as unique and treats each person as his equal. Derek found that his experiences growing up in a military family and moving from state to state on a regular basis molded him into a flexible and approachable attorney whom anyone can trust.

Whether it be pursuing a quick resolution through negotiation or litigating a case before a judge and jury, Derek is always trying his hardest to get the best result. He understands, though, that the best result changes from person to person and he crafts a strategy to suit that client.

When not active in the courtroom, Derek regularly spends his time researching developments in the law and incorporating new knowledge into his practice so that he can better represent his clients. He has even spoken to students at Syracuse University College of Law about maintaining an interest in pro bono activities and the importance of client counseling.

He has been sought after for comments on DWI and criminal defense-related issues in articles published by USA Today-College Edition, Business Insider, and Reader’s Digest. Derek has also been invited to lecture on the effects of DWI on the community and negotiation skills and client counseling in the field of criminal defense.
