Profile

Derrick Weber concentrates his practice on collections and creditors’ remedies, helping recover losses for such clients as banks, credit unions, businesses and others who provide credit.  He manages a group of attorneys and staff who work in all stages of litigation and recognizes that a resolution needs to be tailored to the unique circumstances of each case.  By encouraging open communication that is respectful, ethical and sympathetic, Derrick helps clients obtain excellent recoveries while minimizing costs.

The types of cases that he handles include collection litigation and remedies, bankruptcies, secured transactions, real-estate related collections, regulatory response and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) defense.  He also frequently lectures on ethics issues and served on the District IV Ethics Committee from 1998 to 2004.

Derrick has been an officer for the Creditor-Debtor section of the Hennepin County Bar Association since 2005.  He actively participates in the bar by accepting leadership roles and lecturing at conferences about issues affecting the practice of collections.  Giving back to the community is also a focus for Derrick, an attribute that derives from his scouting experience.  Derrick is among the five (5%) of scouts who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
