I heartily endorse Darren
Sometimes Darren's practice areas and mine are both called for with the same client, and I know I can depend on Darren's experience, depth of knowledge, and his dependable nature when I work with him. He is a great advocate for our clients!

Best lawyer around!
Excellent experience Darren has been my attorney for many years and has handled various types of cases for me.  I trust his judgment and know that he will always be a straight shooter when I come to him with questions.  He’s always professional and courteous in our dealings and I feel like I can call him up at any time when I need answers. I’ve followed him to his new firm and have likewise been impressed with his new staff.  Highly recommend Dummit Fradin.

Personal injury and traffic tickets
Darren has represented me on different matters over the years. He's knowledgeable, reliable, and prompt. I'm comfortable dealing with him and I always call him first to get answers to my legal questions. I've followed him to his new firm and I'm happy to refer all my friends and family to Dummit Fradin.

Highly Recommend Mr. Howard!
Darren has helped me on two different occasions. Each time, he took the time to meet with me (even after hours), listen to my situation and the help/guidance that I needed. He then clearly laid out my options, explained the approach he recommended and made sure I was on the same page. In both cases, I was confident in our approach and impressed with Darren’s attention to detail. His demeanor in the courtroom was spot on for the type of cases we were dealing with. Both cases turned out favorably, and I wouldn’t hesitate to call Darren again. Highly recommended!” Thank you!!!

College Student Assistance
Mr. Howard was a great attorney to have! I am a college student and I was charged with reckless driving and going over the speed limit by 25 mph. It was a tough case but he helped lower my ticket and get the reckless driving charge dropped. He explained every step because this was my first ticket. He had me complete an online course and do community service as well as submit my resume. I highly recommend him!

Money well spent!
I hired Mr. Howard to handle my North Carolina civil case. I live in Georgia so our communication was via telephone and also by e-mail. Mr. Howard kept me updated, clearly told me the documents that he needed to pursue my case and ultimately resolved the case to my satisfaction prior to the court date. I was extremely satisfied with his services and I have contacted him since to ask related legal questions.

My go to attorney
I was fighting for custody of my daughter for years. Used several different attorneys, I had all but given up after emptying my savings, sold everything of value and could never find an attorney to truly fight as hard as they could. Then one day a door opened and I met Mr. Howard. I called and spoke with him, he took my case at the last minute and within 24 hours I had an ex parte custody order for my little girl. I’ve never met an attorney who cared as much as he did, nor one that fought till the end. I would recommend this gentleman to everyone. He is truly the best, he is honest, the communication across the whole case was on point, I was never left in the dark. I had a realistic understanding of the possible outcomes and when asked what he would do in my case, I just climbed in, buckled up and enjoyed the ride. Thank you Mr. Howard, you truly are a savior.

Very Helpful
Darren has been very helpful and even if I contact him after hours, he responds when able. He has great knowledge and cares about his clients by helping them and being there for him however he can.

Very unsatisfied with his service
He was not easy to get a hold of. He asked me to write up points I wanted him to use during our case hearing. I wrote 5 pages and he never turned the 1st page! He costed me my custody case and it should have been an easy when considering the other parent cheated a drug test! He forgot major facts of my case between hearings as well. It was a train wreck!

Was not easy to get a hold of, hardly available for meetings. Felt like my case was not important.did not seem interested in my case.

Superior unsatisfactory service
Attorney was not easy to reach for updates to case or to find out when case was scheduled to be heard. Never had a face to face meeting to go over the case. Overall, unimpressed with the quality of service provided.
