Derek Lewis is a trial lawyer and associate at The Injury Firm, where he handles a wide variety of personal injury cases.

Before joining The Injury Firm, Derek worked as an Assistant State Attorney at the Broward Office of the State Attorney, 17th Judicial Circuit, rising to the rank of a Homicide Unit Prosecutor. During this time, Derek tried over 40 jury trials, countless non-jury trials, and successfully argued hundreds of motions. In January of 2015, Derek helped co-found the Traffic Homicide Unit where he investigated, filed, and took to trial cases such as: DUI Manslaughter, Vehicular Homicide, and Leaving the Scene of a Crash with Death. It was here that Derek developed his passion for seeking justice for those killed or injured in vehicle crashes. Based on the guidance and support he provided for those injured by drunk drivers, Derek has been nominated multiple times by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for Outstanding Prosecutor.

Prior to his legal career, Derek attended the University of Central Florida, where he attained his Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Studies and remained on the Dean’s List every semester. After graduating UCF, Derek went back to his hometown to attend law school at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University where he obtained his Juris Doctor degree.

Derek is a native South Floridian who enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. He also enjoys spearfishing and being outdoors.
