Integrity and Understanding
Darby Hertz helped me so much through my experience. I am so thankful to have someone so compassionate who truly advocates for her clients. She responded to me promptly and listened to my story well and took action quickly. She is committed to seeing me through all of the steps I am taking; I highly recommend her as an attorney.

Honest and hard working!
I consulted with several attorneys in town. Darby Hertz was honest and straightforward. She didn't tell me what I wanted to hear, she discussed the law and what my options were. My case was stressful but Darby and her staff were always available to answer my questions. I truly felt like she championed my position and I was able to achieve a great outcome. Thank you!!

Honest, works hard
She works hard and spent a substantial amount of time with me getting ready for hearings for my case. I could tell that she cares about her clients by how she handled my case. She goes the extra mile.
