Firm Overview

The Freeman Law Group is a law firm serving all of Southern Colorado. The focus of my practice is in helping those who find themselves in the worst situations - like Bankruptcy and Disability.

When you're drowning in debt and can't see a way out, I am here to help. Call my office, and we can discuss your situation and determine the best course of action available to you. The decision to file bankruptcy is a difficult one, and I know you've thought long and hard about it. Let's talk, and I'll tell you what your options are. We'll see if bankruptcy is the right choice for you. Bankruptcy (or the "B" word) sounds nasty, but it's actually a way out, that has been instituted by the government to help people just like you. Let me guide you through the process and help you get back on the path to financial stability.

If you're disabled, you know the frustration of suddenly finding yourself unable to work. If you have been working and paying into Social Security throughout your career, you are entitled to receive SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) benefits if you suddenly become disabled. I have helped literally hundreds of people receive the benefits to which they are entitled, even after they have been denied.

Or, if you've been disabled so long that you haven't been able to work and pay into Social Security, you may be entitled to SSI (Supplemental Security Income). I also help people get SSI benefits. Call my office, and I can guide you through the process and help you regain your life.

Whether your troubles come from uncontrollable debt or from a disability, I stand ready to help. Contact me today! I answer my own phone.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I've represented people in lots of areas of the law. I helped people in divorce cases get the best they could out of the situation. I've helped people in child custody cases get more time with their children. I've helped people accused of crimes get acquitted. I've represented people in hearings and jury trials. Yet during all my time as a lawyer, I've felt like I've done the most good helping people in dire straits.

I like the look of relief on a client's face when he realizes his debts have been discharged, and he can now start over, start fresh. I like seeing joy in a client's eyes when she realizes that she can finally get the proper health care that she needs, because she got her disability benefits. With these two areas of the law, I can actually see the difference I'm making in people's lives. That's why I focus on bankruptcy and disability.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are not the uber-large mega-firm that sees clients as mere dollar signs. We know each and every client is an individual, with individual needs. We give each client's case individual attention, and keep each client informed about his or her case. We believe that by keeping the lines of communication open, we all succeed. As a small firm, we also do not have the overhead that large firms do, so we can keep our fees reasonable. Affordable, personalized legal representation - that's how we keep clients satisfied and how we all come out ahead.

Derek Freeman

I decided to become a lawyer when I discovered that I liked helping people. Why it took me until graduate school to figure this out, I don't know. But I decided that becoming a lawyer would allow me more opportunities to be helpful to people who needed help. So I stopped what I was doing (pursuing a PhD in art history) and instead went to law school.

I started my law career at Washburn University School of Law. While there, I was associate editor of Family Law Quarterly. A family emergency made it necessary to move to Colorado, where my family lived, and I transferred to the University of Colorado Law School. At CU, I was privileged to be an associate editor of Colorado Law Review and a member of the International Law Moot Court Team.

After earning my law degree, I interned at the Fremont County District Attorney's office. Following this, I entered private practice as an associate attorney in a Pueblo law firm, where I focused on family law, criminal defense, and bankruptcy. I later moved on to another law firm and practiced in Social Security Disability representation. In 2013 I established the Freeman Law Group in order to focus on the two areas of law which I consider of most benefit to people - bankruptcy and disability law. Since starting the Freeman Law Group, I have continued to serve the people of Southern Colorado and look forward to many more years providing the people of Southern Colorado with the legal help they need.

When I'm not representing people in court, I enjoy spending time with my two awesome children. We are all lego maniacs.

I am licensed to practice law in the state of Colorado, and the United States District Court. I am a member of the Colorado Bar Association and the El Paso County Bar Association.
