Very Sincere and Genuine
Darren Shull is a very sincere person who genuinely cares about the client. Being in need of legal services for the first time in my life, Darren's professional approach, attention to detail, and communicating openly, gave me a better sense of security. Knowing Darren was in my corner and that he was completely available any time I had a question made all the difference. I can say that my stress level went from 100+ to nearly zero after our first meeting. Darren's office staff are also very helpful and always ready to help whenever I needed anything. Darren Shull's knowledge and experience about the who and the where made "getting things done" a guarantee.

Great Outcome and Would Highly Recommend
We were in need of a defense attorney for some legal issues that happened a few years prior. I had no luck with a few other firms and attorneys that promised they could help. In conversation with a friend they said I should contact Mr. Shull. Not only was he really helpful and friendly on the phone, which most attorneys won't give you the time of day to talk to them, he was able to meet us the next day and gave us tremendous hope. Fast forward several months later, he was hired by us, the issue was resolved very much to our liking and our life is moving forward. I HIGHLY recommend this office and Mr. Shull. I just wish I had known about him several years ago.

I would recommend Darren Shull to anyone needing a great criminal defense attorney. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew so much about my case when I showed up for my first consultation. He was very familiar with the law and the charges and immediately put me at ease. He even got my case dropped. If you need someone good with a lot of experience call Darren.

Excellent Attorney
I've had the pleasure of working with Darren Shull as a private investigator on multiple cases. His professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding. His professional demeanor toward his clients exceeds what a client would generally receive in an attorney/client relationship. Should I ever need services, I would certainly hire Darren for my defense.

Highly Recommended
I was arrested for a DUI in Jupiter, FL in October of 2013. This was my first time getting into any serious trouble with the law and it was a horrible experience. I was disappointed in myself for getting into this situation and was very down. I immediately sought legal representation to help me navigate through unknown waters. That is when I contacted Mr. Shull. He immediately made me feel at ease and provided me with a comfort that I would have somebody representing me with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Additionally, I found his fee more than reasonable. During the whole process I was kept up to date every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mr. Shull to anybody needing legal representation especially when it comes to DUI/DWI.

Attorney Shull got my case dropped after I was arrested.
I was arrested by a small police department here in Palm Beach county on a felony gun charge.Thought my life was over because I had never been arrested before. Attorney Shull carefully looked at my case, took photos went over the Florida gun laws with me and told me why the police were wrong in arresting me. He made his case to the prosecuting attorneys office and they dropped my charges! Attorney Shull told me what he was going to do for me and he did it!
