Excellent lawyer
I recommend him to everyone, I hired Mr. Darren maybe over two months ago and he did a very nice work. I pretty much got everything I ask for especially I will have my daughter most of the time. I'm a father and I pretty much have 70 percent of my daughter. He find my mistakes and certain paperwork I thought I did but I didn't do he fix it immediately. I am pleased with his work he know what he doing. I am happy with the results and my child support went down 70 percent. I am almost done with this child custody battle. And also his prices was very reasonable

Great Family Law Lawyer
I hired Darren to represent me in a custody battle. I had hired 2 other lawyers prior to him, but he was the only lawyer that I found that paid attention to all of the details of the case and gave me the time needed to understand the facts. I would, without doubt, hire him again.
