"I have known Darren Soto since Fall 2001, when we were both "1Ls" at The George Washington University Law School. Now, we both practice law in central Florida. Darren has a genuine care and compassion for his clients. He is an extremely effective negotiator and is able to achieve excellent results at a fraction of what the "big firms" charge. I highly recommend Mr. Soto for any practice area in which he represents clients."
