I paid him up fromt for a probate of a will. He said $1500 and it would take 90 days. After 6 months he never did his job. He wouldn't return calls. I finally questioned him and he filed to withdraw from the case and lied to
the judge in court. I had to hire another attorney.

I am not sure how this attorney has managed to make a living in the 19 years he has had his license. When we first contacted Mr. Darnell about our case it took him a bit to get back to us. That was fine but it seemed to continue this way the whole time. We would call and he was either busy or not in the office. He would get back to us maybe a week later. I am a truck driver so getting into el paso can be a bit hard but I was scheduled to go there so set up an appointment to meet Mr. Darnell we had a day and time set. When it came to that day I called him numerous times and he didnt get back to me till LATE that night which by then was too late and I had to get a load and leave town. Even after all that we still hired him. Gave him the $500.00 Retainer and he told us he would send out the demand letter to the defendants. Well that was 2 weeks ago and nothing has been done. We have tried to call him over and over and over again and was always told he was busy or out of town. Finally today we called and asked his assistant to find out if he wanted the case. "he already agreed to take it but with how things were going we figured we needed to remind him we were still here" Got a call later from his assistant saying Mr. Darnell told him to gather the papers we sent him and the check and to mail them back to us he is not taking the case now. We asked the assistant why and he told us Mr. Darnell did not tell him why. Mr. Darnell has wasted over a month of valuable time on this case. I should have gone with my instincts from the first time of talking to him but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. If you are thinking of hiring this man I would suggest you think twice and go with your instincts cause there is just something shady about him. If you go with him all the best but dont say you werent warned. Signed D&L C Enterprises LLC
