  • Thomas T. Field

    Darryl has carved out a reputation in the area of criminal defense that is well beyond his years in practice. He has mastered the art of trial preparation and always knows the law and facts better than anyone else in the courtroom. Darryl is results oriented and doesn't stop turning over rocks until he exhausts all options to protect his clients and mitigate any repercussions that may be in store for his clients. I would comfortably and confidently recommend Darryl's services to any client's or acquaintances and have. I have only heard good things in return.
