My name is Derk Wadas, I am an attorney with a practice dedicated solely to providing representation in criminal cases in all Texas state courts and in Federal court. I am Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
I am a former Collin County prosecutor and practicing criminal attorney since 1998. During my years as a criminal prosecutor I tried over seventy cases to a jury and spent my career in the courtroom. I have the skills, experience and commitment to represent you in any type of crime.
It is important to me to stay abreast of changes in the law, and continually strive to deliver superior representation to clients. For those reasons, I am a member of organizations including the National College for DUI Defense, and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
Further, I have completed the Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Practitioner course and am a certified practitioner. I have the same level of training in field sobriety testing as the police who investigate Driving While Intoxicated cases.
If you have been arrested for, or charged with a crime this is very likely a bewildering time for you. I offer a free half hour consultation during which I will:
- advise you of the law concerning the particular offense with which you have been charged
- discuss the facts of your unique situation
-evaluate your case for potential defenses and likely outcomes
-answer any questions you may have about the law or the court process in general.
If you have been charged with any misdemeanor or felony criminal offense including Driving While Intoxicated, Assault, Theft, a Drug offense, in Collin County including Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Allen, Wylie, Parker, Murphy, Richardson or anywhere in North Texas or you seek advice or zealous representation on a criminal law matter, I am the criminal defense attorney for you.
