Derik grew up in South Point, Ohio. He is a father of four and loves old Hondas. Derik is a 2018 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law and is licensed to practice in Kentucky. Before law school, he attended Ohio University and worked for the Herald-Dispatch as a District Sales Manager.
Derik began law school later in life and was drawn to Property Law and Estate Planning. After graduating, Derik worked as a staff attorney for a Circuit Court Judge in Fayette County, followed by three years with an Elder Law firm where he worked closely with families facing the crisis of paying for longterm care.
In late 2022, Derik was able to return to the Tri-State to be closer to his children and family, and he now calls Ashland, Kentucky, home.
