I was most fortunate to be able to hire Derrick Hogan on two separate occasions to fight tickets for us. I cannot even begin to tell you what kind of a professional we were dealing with. His character matched his ability as an attorney. Having to hire an attorney for an out of town situation was a very difficult decision to make. I feel so blessed with dealing with this esquire. Mr. Hogan handled us like a symphony. He was extremely kind, brilliant, confident, sincere, and worked very hard on our behalf. He takes great pride in his work and it certainly shows. I have never in my entire life worked with anyone this professional or more highly qualified. If you decide to hire Derrick Hogan, you will have made the decision to hire the best attorney possible. Sometimes driving a Lexus is a smoother ride than driving a Dodge. You would be getting a Lexus with this lawyer. I give him five stars; he is a superstar himself. What a pleasure for me to recommend Derrick Hogan. Derrick is the absolute BEST of the BEST.
Tully Rinckey PLLC's professionalism put me right at ease. They had all charges against me dropped! I truly felt they earned my whole retainer and they even sent me back what was not used. I did not feel overcharged by Tully Rinckey PLLC at all. Their hard work kept me from getting a criminal record that would have affected me for the rest of my life. For this I am grateful. I have never been in trouble in my entire life. Getting arrested, being put in jail and losing my job, changed me to the core. Because of all the hard work done by them, I have a new life to live. For that, I cannot ever thank them enough!
Derrick Hogan at Tully Rinckey handled my case and I feel fortunate that he was my lawyer. I called to talk with someone about my case and by chance was connected with Mr. Hogan. He listened, asked good questions, and gave me all the information I could have asked for. He explained every step, what would or could happen in very clear and easy to understand terms. I was sent a retainer and explained the case would be covered by a flat fee, and that anything that came up in the future relating to the case would be fully covered by that fee. Although my case was probably one of the simpler, easier cases they handle, Mr. Hogan always made me feel that my case was important to him. He always urged me to call him if I had questions or wanted him to go over anything again. He even called me to follow up before I had to call him â€“ something I find is rare with almost any professionals these days. He treated me with utmost courtesy and respect, was knowledgeable, and reassuring.
I contacted Tully Rinckey PLLC for representation and upon doing so, obtained Derrick Hogan as my attorney.
