Fall 2019 Housing Clinical Student
Derek was a thorough and relentless advocate. He brought great attention to detail and support while doing jury selection in a trial. Derek also advocated for a disabled couple, living in Oakland long-term, who suffered physical and verbal abuse at the hands of their landlord. He didn’t hesitate to intervene on his client’s behalf when police were called and went the extra mile to treat our clients with dignity.
