After his military service during the Iraq War in 2003, Derek Tran began his expansive career with serving the people. He worked closely with the Mayor of Los Angeles and then transitioned into managing and oversight of regulations for a national bank. It was during his subsequent tenure consulting for the Los Angeles Unified School District, when he started taking law school classes part-time. Derek is a graduate of both Consumer Attorneys of California’s Leadership Academy and Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles’s Plaintiff Trial Academy.
In 2018, Derek played a pivotal part on the trial team that secured a 2.2 million dollar sexual harassment verdict. The case was featured in the Daily Journal and made the 2018 California Top 100 Jury Verdicts.
Later, Derek was acknowledged with the 2018 CAALA Presidential Award and the 2019 CAOC Presidential Award of Merit. He still serves as a board member and on several committees for each organization and is the current Vice Chair for CAALA’s New Lawyers.
The Tran Firm, which Derek founded in 2020, focuses on personal injury and employment law. Derek is personally involved in every aspect of every case. He is there to meet with the client at signup and stays immersed in the process through resolution. One of the biggest compliments he can receive is when his former clients refer him to their injured friends and relatives. Derek says, “I treat all my clients as family, and for family you go the extra mile.”
