Derek Graham is a principal at Resch, Root, Philips, and Graham, LLC, a law firm in Ohio with a specialty in special needs law. Derek enjoys helping people avoid and fix problems that arise in their lives. Early in his career, he was fortunate to get experience in civil litigation, business transactions, and estate planning. Then in 2009, he and his wife had their first daughter who was born with Down syndrome. Like many of his clients today, they were inundated with information and felt overwhelmed. Nine years later, he spends the majority of his days helping similarly situated families understand the various resources that exist for families like his. He finds it very rewarding to meet with families of all varieties and help them understand how to effectively and practically plan their estate. More than that though, he enjoys helping families understand the resources available to them and how to get the most out of those resources.
