  • Mark Steven Martinez

    I would recommend this attorney to any potential client for criminal defense or family law. Darla is a very down to earth, humble individual who comes across as a regular person. Yet, underneath a calm and gentle exterior is a knowledgeable, intelligent and zealous individual who shows that she truly cares about her clients. As a former prosecutor she possesses the requisite knowledge to provide excellent representation, but I believe it is her willingness to continue to learn and grow that separates her from other attorneys.
