Darren recently served as an intensive settlement panelist on a matter that was in litigation for over a year. Darren's knowledge of the law and exceptional ability to reason with the parties helped facilitate closure for everyone, most significantly the children who were the subject of the dispute. By donating his time and skill to serve as a panelist he was able to accomplish what other highly esteemed mediators before him were not. I endorse this lawyer with great pleasure.
