My family has used Darrell Cox for 25 years. He has always been successful in winning our cases. My son was on a 25,000 cash bond. Darrell fought to get the bond down and actually was able to get it done without any money out of my pocket. Overall Darrell got the job done the way we wanted. His experience is a key factor. He knows what he is doing, and he has been doing it for years.

Darrell Cox will help you out when you need it most
My family and have hired Mr.Darrell Cox on many manydgqa occasionsmyself snd my brothers have all been in some kind of legal trouble and my father always went to Darrell Cox and he hadn’t failed us yet. My things were s whole lot easier then my brothers cases which usually involved illegal drugs buying or selling snd Darrell o know kept my older brother from going to prison on several occasions where he was caught with drugs on him! And he had been beat up snd robbed by the people that he bought the drugs from! I know my brother never told where or who he bought the drugs from and Darrell got him off with time served csuse he was in jail gor several months but he also got him out of jail immediately. Which is an amazing thing to get out of jail when you srd the one in there csuse it is I humane conditions in jail. I understand you are being punished but that shouldn’t mean that you should sleep with piss and feces around you that is down tighg sick snd I can’t think of anyone that deserves that! Maybe a muted er deserved it cause they don’t care about another human life so why should domeone care about their life but i I t just depends on everything involved snd Darrell doesan’t disrespect you he treats you as if you sre equal to him no matter what you have done and I believe he takes every case and works as hard as he can to get you back to your regular life without you having to sell your property to pay him for being uout attorney he is the best criminal attorney I have seen out there! He also told my older btother that at one point he had represented my brother in probabslly 10-15cases he finally said look I don’t know how much more I can help you with! Darrelld said you have to get your dhit together or you are going to do hard time cause I am sure the judges were tired of seeing him. So my brother I guess started thinking about all the stupid stuff he had done anf he straightened up his life and Todsy has a great job at a printing company where he is a lead guy and has his own crew that he runs had his own house with 4card in the family anf vad an18year old don that is doing great! So ZzDarrell Cox helped my family when we were young adults all the way to adult-hoodso I highly recommand Mr. Darrell Cox!! He is the best you can find! Thank you Darrell Melanie Robbins

Disappointed client
Darrell nor Chase returned calls or responded to several messages that I left. They took my retainer fee and just left my fiance setting in jail for days. Not very professional in my opinion and just seems money hungry and greedy.

Let me just say that I’ve never been in trouble with the law in my life. I’m actually a former police officer so I know the ins and outs of the court system and how things are supposed to be handled properly. I hired Darrell, or so I thought, to help on a loved ones case and he literally did nothing. By that I mean he put the case off onto his incapable son who was too busy constantly to do anything. not even return phone calls to let us know what was going on. Which reading these reviews seems like a Trend. Excuse after excuse and here I am months later with a case that hasn’t moved and I’m out a few thousand dollars. When you read reviews and they say that this place is sketchy or that Mr. Cox himself gave off sketchy vibes please listen to them. I should’ve went with my gut instinct because when I spoke with him in person that first time he sounded like every slimy attorney on any TV show ever. But we were desperate and I thought with his years of experience and name that we could get something done on a case that he himself told me was nothing and would be so easy to do. I can lose this little amount of money that’s fine. I make great money but what I can’t sit by and accept is that I have information and experience with these people but did nothing about it so here I am leaving an honest review. I feel bad for every person that has ever wasted money with these people and I feel even worse for the souls of the kind of people that leave these fake reviews acting like this is a good law firm. Take your money somewhere else. I PROMISE you it’s worth it instead of listening to him and his crap and going with him. Take your money and RUN.

Do not hire this man
This man (Mr.Cox the father ) took all my money I got for a custody and domestic violence case and don’t return none of my calls after I got of jail he dropped my case just to do my sons fathers case and he lost both of my case and now is helping my sons father to win custody but yet isn’t that conflict of interest going from one person to another person and my sons father was paying on the lawyer while I was in jail

Do not hire this guy.
I hired him and gave him a 1600 dollar retainer on the spot. I was only in his office for 5 minutes. Seemed sketchy but at the time I was in desperate need for help. He failed to show to my preliminary hearing.
