“After 24 years as a lawyer and eight years at a woman-helmed law firm, Lincoln knows female trial lawyers are the minority.”
Lincoln Derr was Created by Client Demand. It began in a rustic courtroom in rural North Carolina. The stakes were high and the attorneys on the other side were nationally known and well-respected. We had an uphill battle, a very difficult case and a client who rested his fate in our hands.
