Frank has been an attorney in New York and New Jersey for over 20 years.   While at some of New York City's largest law firms and on his own, he has handled high-profile matters from end-to-end, primarily on the trial side but frequently involving high-stakes negotiations. This meant managing teams of professionals in both legal and administrative roles while retaining responsibility for the overall outcome and client satisfaction in cases of all kinds, from simple to complex, involving partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, agents, brokers, customers, investors, government officials, lenders, patients, and insurance companies.

“My particular skills involve mastering

complex sets of facts with many moving

parts and providing clear and concise

analysis and advice to guide my client forward.”

As a trial lawyer for some of New York City's largest law firms, he has handled entire cases from end-to-end, from pre-complaint investigation through trial and appellate proceedings, managing teams of professionals in both legal and administrative roles while retaining responsibility for overall outcome and client satisfaction.​

Mr. Derby gives generously of his time and resources to the community. He serves on Montgomery Township's environmental committee. Mr. Derby has served as  a trustee of The Mary Jacobs Memorial Library Foundation in Rocky Hill, NJ and as a member of the Board of Directors of Carolyn Stokes Preschool, a Ewing-based preschool serving disadvantaged young children in the greater Trenton area.  In the early 2000s, Mr. Derby helped spearhead a citizens’ effort to gain control of the state-owned and defunct North Princeton Developmental Center property (now Skillman Park and part of the Somerset County Park System) in the early 2000s. 

Mr. Derby is a proud father of two grown children and served as coach of baseball and basketball little league teams when they were young.  Neither plays either sport today, undoubtedly as a result of his coaching.

He welcomes the opportunity to provide high quality and cost-effective litigation services for you or your company.
