Attorney/Partner

Derek Martin is from the south suburbs of Chicago. He attended Illinois State University where he received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Derek worked at a major media company for five years before deciding to enroll in law school.

He attended Chicago-Kent College of Law part-time in the evenings while working full-time during the day. Derek supervised and managed 55 employees at the company, before leaving to practice law full-time.

As a real estate investor since his early twenties, Derek built a law practice managing real estate transactions for investors throughout Chicagoland.

Derek has since co-founded Driver Defense Team where he manages the daily operations of the firm and represents clients each day in all types of traffic defense and DUI matters.

"Derek and his team are top notch, they were able to professionally navigate the court system and end result of what could have been major offenses was a dismissal and expungement from public record! As an overly anxious person Derek was extremely responsive and sensitive to my inquiries always answering with explanation in terms that we’re understandable and realistic - couldn’t have asked for better representation for my case!"

"Driver Defense Team was awesome from beginning to end of our case. I actually received a card in the mail from them when my daughter received her ticket. I was skeptical at first so decided to google them and found nothing but good reviews and great outcome for their clients. I called 2 weeks before the case and they set up everything over the phone and via email in less than an hour. We met Derek Martin before court and he took care of everything else. It was a great experience and I would not hesitate to call on them again."

"Derek & his team of paralegals and legal assistants are amazing! They are responsive, and brought rapid resolution to my case. Derek called me personally within 30 min or less of my email submission inquiry about assistance. His office team is great with communication & keeping you updated. Derek didn't give me false hope or make any promises he couldn't keep. However, he did in fact get my case dismissed! He has multiple strategies for all the issues he specializes in. I feel so blessed to have retained his services. I COULD NOT SPEAK MORE HIGHLY of this practice. If you need an advocate in an extremely uncomfortable position (as I did), please call them!"
