Derek Dees

Houston Family Law, Associate Attorney

Johnson, Loyd & Schmitz
Houston, Texas
Phone: 281-823-8101

Derek Dees is a native Houstonian. He chose to focus his legal practice in the area of family law as a result of growing up in a family with divorced parents. That experience as a child has given him a perspective that can be useful to clients with children and allows him to work compassionately with families undergoing change.

When not working, Derek is often running Memorial Park, skiing at Lake Livingston, or watching any Rockets, Texans, or Aggie game he can find.
