Excellent attorney
Darren is an example of professionalism and dedication to his clients. He helped me with a confusing situation with my Workmen’s Comp. That ended up being a fair conclusion. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fair and honest attorney to represent them.

Workman's comp.
Darin always kept me informed on my case. Always there if I had any questions. The settlement that he got me was what I deserved to receive. He does his job very well.

Representation in pedestrian/auto collision
I hired Darin Luneckas to represent me in a case where I was struck by a vehicle. It was a dual case because he dealt with the driver and her insurance and also a work comp case. This spanned over 2 years. He was very thorough and helpful. I felt I was very well represented in a very difficult situation.

Car Accident Settlement
Darin worked very hard for my husband's car accident case. The person who hit him didn't have enough insurance to cover the medical bills so we had to go through a UIM claim. We were about ready to give up on reaching a settlement offer that best suited everyone and Darin went above and beyond and worked a great deal for everyone involved. He is a hard worker, true to his word and really cares about his client. We would recommend him to anyone! Thank you for all you did for us.

Worker's Comp
I hired Darin for a worker's comp case and not only received weekly compensation pay, medical bills/surgery covered but also received a $25,000 cash settlement. Darin was on top of everything and I didn't have to do a bunch of running around completing footwork.

Mr. Luneckas's help has been invaluable to me.
Darin is helping me at this time, and has in the past (several years ago.) I tend to get fed up and over anxious with the process of dealing with unreasonable insurance companies, but Darin has managed to calm me down and show me the best ways to move forward. His extremely professional demeanor and straight-shooter style has given me the confidence I needed to pursue my case. I am very happy with his services and would recommend him highly.

A great lawyer!
I hired Darin to help with a legal problem, but he has has been so helpful and supportive to me in other ways. After my husband suddenly passed away he made several suggestions that helped with my settling of the estate, and recommended another attorney to help me with probate. I will always consider him a good friend.

Darin cares about people.
He explained things in terms that I could understand. I had no idea how much I didn't know about the workers compensation system, and what my rights are. I would highly recommend Darin for workers compensation.

Five Stars
Darin is by far one of the best attorneys that I know. He is always professional and works hard to get his clients what they rightfully deserve. Not only does he make sure that his clients are up to date with the status of their case, but he also makes sure to keep them up to date with any changes that may take place within the firm. Darin will always be my first recommendation to anyone in need of legal representation!
