He followed this up with a Master of Science Degree from Columbia University, and then graduated from the University of Denver's Sturm College of Law in 2005, with a Juris Doctor Law Degree. His background in business prior to attending law school includes management of large investment funds in New York City, and media experience with ABC World News Tonight, Nightline and 20/20. While in Colorado, Attorney George served as a judicial law clerk for two major judges and did contract legal work with U.S. Fortune 500 companies.
Derrick's diverse education and business experiences have given him perspectives that other attorneys may not have. He understands the importance of professional obligations, business and personal reputations, standing up for what's right and giving everyone a fair chance at life even when road blocks present themselves or mistakes are made. All of this is what makes Derrick passionate about his role as an attorney and particularly in the fields of criminal defense, business law and family legal matters.
