Real Estate Property Sale
If I could give Attorney Darren Kirton a rating hirer than 5 stars I would. The sale of my rental property in Newark NJ was an extremely arduous journey. Besides having to navigate the process during a pandemic, we were also facing a litany of concerns with the property itself. Without boring you with the blow by blow, suffice to say, Mr. Kirton was the best and only choice of captain to helm this ship. There were so many times that the deal appeared to be lost but somehow Mr. Kirton guided it safely back on course. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose him. He's intelligent, reliable, very professional and extremely approachable. If you want results, I would highly recommend Attorney Darren Kirton.

Excellent and Patient Real Estate Lawyer
I worked with Mr. Kirton over the past few months as we worked on a complex condo sale that occurred during the COVID pandemic. This caused plenty of starts and stops but Mr. Kirton handled them very well and was able to push to the close. I would definitely work with Mr. Kirton again.

Wonderful Experience...
We started working with Mr. Kirton at the end of 2019 until March 2020. During that time Mr. Kirton was very professional and accommodating considering our very hectic situation. Mr. Kirton was always available to answer questions along the way and is very knowledgeable. "Moving forward" Would I recommend his services to someone? Absolutely.. Thanks Mr. Kirton.

Great Job with Buying and Selling NJ Real Estate
I have worked with Darren for the past two years. Darren helped me buy a home in 2018 and sell a home in 2019. Darren is very thorough, paying attention to all details and helping me as the client understand the pros and cons of every potential change in the contract. I have recommended Darren to other family friends. Darren will definitely at the closing table as my attorney for my next real estate matter.

Highly Recommended
If you are looking for Family Attorney which will not give you the run around, Mr. Kirton is whom you should choose. My personal experience with Mr. Kirton was satisfactory and I'm pleased with his service and guidance. He was there every step of the way, was clear on how the process would go and when times were tough, he was supportive. I'm grateful for his counseling services and I was able to go through my divorce with my head high due to his helping hand every step of the way.

Darren was referred to me by a colleague. I needed someone licensed in New Jersey and my friend knew I had challenging circumstances for my home purchase. My deal was very nuanced and it took 4 months to close. So having an attorney like Darren who was able to help all parties manage their expectations and keep everyone on point was no small feat. Please keep in mind, this process spanned over Thanksgiving, Christmas and a government shut down. But Mr. Kirton helped make it happen. If you want to close with all of the nuts and bolts in place, call Darren Kirton ASAP.

Condo closing
Mr. Kirton assisted by representing me in the closing purchase of my out-of-state condo. He was extremely knowledgable and very professional during the whole process. Mr. Kirton is very cautious and asked the right questions up to the last documents signed. Recommend him without reservation to all!

Child Custody Trial (Father Granted Custody of his Daughter from another State)
First of all I live in AL and my custody case was in NJ. I spoke to over 10 Lawyers and most of them were rude and rushed me off the phone. I spoke to my Pastor who reached out to a friend in NJ and the rest is history. When I spoke with Mr Darren Kirton , I couldn't say the same for him . He was patient and very attentive to all my questions. He took on my case at the last min. and was able to deliver great results. I am a father who was pursuing custody of my child who lived in a different state than me. I lived in AL and she resided with her mother in NJ. After talking to Mr Darren the first time, I had a good feeling that we would win this case. From the beginning, he proved to be very knowledgeable about family law and was able to give me a quick overview of his plan. The advice that he gave was good and gave me a sense of hope. Darren had 3 days to work on my files and come up with a final plan. Within those three days we were able to speak over the phone and he kept me updated each day with emails and text messages. I finally met Darren for the first time on the day of court and he was dressed professionally and stayed focused throughout the whole trial. In the end we won the trial and I was granted custody of my daughter. I would recommend Darren Kirton for legal representation!! Thanks for all your help and advice.....Keep up the good work.

Would recommend.
Mr. Kirton was highly professional and a pleasure to work with. He responded to my questions in a timely fashion even on his days off when an urgent matter needed to be addressed. He was very good at maintaining a calm and professional manner even when the situation could be highly emotional for his client. His advise was always in the best interest of his client and his knowledge base was very helpful. I would definately recommend him.

Re: Condo Sale in NJ
Mr. Kirton represented my older mom as a union lawyer in helping us sell her condo in New Jersey, and we no longer lived in the area. Though there were a zillion things that made this long-distance transaction harder than it should've been (on OUR end), such as our paperwork out of date, other entities taking forever to follow through with what needed to be done, etc. etc., had Mr. Kirton not been on top of things throughout, this would not have gotten done by the closing date. Mr. Kirton called or emailed us back in a timely fashion, made sure we were kept-up-to date, and always informed us of the next step. Very professional, and much appreciated -- THANK YOU MR. KIRTON!!

A great Family Law/Divorce Attorney!!
I was referred to Mr. Kirton through my union. From the start, Mr. Kirton proved to be very knowledgable about family and divorce law.. He worked with me on my divorce case from start to finish (about a year and a half). He always gave great advice ("Don't let him get to you!") and was always right about what would happen next!! I always felt that he was genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of myself and my children. If ever I had a question, I could contact Mr. Kirton and would recieve an answer with a dash of encourgament. I would hightly recommend Darren Kirton for legal representation!!!

I met Darren Kirton through my union to handle the sale of my home in NJ. He was very knowledgeable, supportive and helpful when it came to handling all legal matters that pertained to the sale of my home and made it a successful one.. I would definitely recommend and work with Darren again in other legal concerns.
