Steve Gabe

Derek was fantastic for me, in a tight situation. His encyclopedic knowledge of legislation in different jurisdictions saved my bacon. He was very sympathetic towards my unfortunate situation, and sharp as a tack before the magistrate. He later provided assistance gratis on a different matter. Be very compliant while sharing organic/caffeinated beverages during lulls in proceedings. Cheers
