ATTORNEY DEREK HAAKE


I am passionate about my clients & their needs.

My reason to become an attorney was simple - I wanted to help people navigate the legal system, whether it was in business or the criminal justice system. I was (and still am) an entrepreneur before I became an attorney, and I have been a part of over a half dozen startups, both large and small. These experiences gave me a wealth of real-world experiences that I bring to my practice. I am also passionate about the criminal justice system, and many of the common issues surrounding the system, and want to help my clients go through this process with as minor of an impact on their lives as possible. Everyone makes mistakes in life, and I don't believe that these mistakes should be with people their whole lives - my goal is to help my clients through this process.
