  • Linda Medeiros Callahan

    Darryl Genis is missing a letter from his last name--it should be Darryl GeniUs, given what I know of him. He brings intelligence, skill, and energy to each and every case. He tirelessly defends his clients and when he shows up in court for a client, the prosecution knows it has a real fight on its hands. Darryl and i have attended many, many, National College of DUI Defense seminars together, and i know him well. We frequently email each other about our cases and he has given me good advice. I endorse him wholeheartedly.
