Executive Partner Derk W. Beckerleg Named In The Best Lawyers In America© In Litigation-Municipal And Municipal Law Practice Areas
Press Release 10/22/2013

SECREST WARDLE is pleased to announce that Executive Partner Derk W. Beckerleg was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2014 in the fields of Litigation-Municipal and Municipal Law (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC). Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” (The Best Lawyers in America© 2014. Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., Aiken, SC).

Southfield Township, City of Dearborn Heights, Village of Bingham Farms, and the City of Walled Lake.    

In addition to his listings in The Best Lawyers in America©, Mr. Beckerleg has consistently been voted for inclusion on the list of Michigan Super Lawyers® by his peers, from 2007 through 2013. He was also recognized on the list of 2012 and 2013 “Top Lawyers” by Metro Detroit’s Dbusiness magazine.

Mr. Beckerleg is a member of the Oakland County Bar Association and the State Bar of Michigan. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan State University in 1978, and his Juris Doctor from University of Detroit Law School in 1981. He was admitted to the State Bar of Michigan in 1982.
