    No one wants to need legal counsel but if you do Dwight Darrow will do everything legally possible to obtain the best possible outcome for you. Dwight and his team made me feel as comfortable, calm, and confidant as is possible in these types of situations. Their response time was amazing and the outcome was far better than I imagined possible. Thank you Dwight D Darrow and team!

    Maneuvering the murky waters of co-parenting can be difficult; maneuvering with an angry, lying, misogynist, who is paranoid and narcissistic was a sinking situation for my sons. Dwight was a life boat in an impossible situation. He provided calm, pragmatic solutions to our complex problems. He knew how to represent our situation and call out the insincere theatrics by the other party. For the last four years, I have relied on his experience and expertise for our unique situation. Throughout this time, Attorney Darrow has been fair with his fees and generous in his understanding of our complex international case. His staff is prompt, professional, attentive and organized. I can offer Attorney Darrow, and the staff at Darrow & Dietrich, only my highest recommendation.

  • Very Thoughtful and Well Reasoned Advice

    Posted by Johnny Sinner

    During my time with Dwight D. Darrow I found him to be of the greatest help. Legal matters are super complex and very difficult for me to understand. Anytime that I had a question or concern about anything, all I would have to do was ask. Dwight would be so kind to break it down into terms that were easy for me to understand.

  • Compassionate Firm

    Posted by Annette

    Life is full of challenges, but nothing like I was faced with in April 2015. After 19 1/2 years of marriage, seven children, and doing everything I thought I was supposed to do as a wife, I was faced with the cold hard facts that my marriage was ending. I didn't know what to do or where to go. A friend referred me to Atty Darrow, and I am so greatful she did. The first time I walked into his office, met his staff and Atty Darrow, I knew my children and I were in good hands. From that day on, Atty Darrow explained, supported and guided me through all the many court dates. His knowledge, experience, integrity, and compassion for my case gave me the strength to stand up for myself and my children. I am a stronger, better more confident person and mother because of his support; he has always given me the truth and instruction I needed to get through those tough days. I know he will continue to be there as new issues arise and he will follow through with every detail and professionalism needed to get the best results for myself and my children. I trust Atty Darrow and his staff completely.

  • Paid Knight in shining armor

    Posted by Lisa

    During a very emotional devastating divorce Dwight D. Darrow was my paid knight in shining armor. From day one he was up front, honest and very kind. He gave me words of encouragement when needed and said things I needed to hear, even though I did not want to hear them. No doubt, I tested his patience and he tested mine. He has a strong sense of confidence that comes from his many years of experience and it shows both inside and outside the court room. He knew which experts to hire, what to expect and kept me on track. I always felt he was concerned for my well being and I trusted his advice 100%. His quick wit and sassy sense of humor made me laugh and smile, which was not an easy thing to do at that time. Dwight was more than fair and very generous in his billing practices. His paralegals were prompt, attentive and very well organized. I would & have referred other friends to Dwight. I am grateful God gave me Dwight Darrow as my attorney, during one of the most difficult times of my life. Thank you Dwight and the entire staff at your office, you have my highest recommendation.

    Divorce is a challenging and emotional time. Attorney Darrow does a great job of easing the tension. He took the time to explain how each step works and what to expect. He was forceful with opposing counsel when needed but always acted in a professional manner. Attorney Darrow answers emails and questions as soon as possible, even after hours or on the weekend. His experience is obvious, and I had full confidence in him from my initial consultation to the final hearing. My ex made sure the divorce was contentious and challenging. Attorney Darrow handled each phase with poise. I don't understand the negative reviews on here, I would hire Attorney Darrow again in a heartbeat (I just hope I never need to).

    I paid him upfront to represent. He never asked any question or any relevant information about me.He was not concerned with the best outcome for me. Once he gets the retainer, his morals disappear.

    Dwight D. Darrow’s response: “This clearly is not a client. It is unfortunate that places like Avvo have become an avenue for people to attack opposing counsel, try to discredit them all without needing to say who they are. How does one respond to an attack from an unknown person who hasn't the decency to identify themselves. I have had zero complaints from my clients about my work, just the opposite. Clients thank me every day for the work I do and the efforts I make on their behalf.”

    My family had survived significant trauma, then were served with sole custody papers. The stress and psychological effects were overwhelmingly draining in every way. Dwight was the most competent lawyer I have encountered. He is a combination of assertiveness and compassion. I felt protected and my family knew to their core we were not in danger. He did not pull any punches with me, he told me what I needed to do to keep my child. It was not always what I wanted to hear but I listened and I won.

  • Best Interest of Dwight

    1.0 star

    Posted by James

    When I first met Dwight he reminded me of an uncle I had. He was easy to speak to, took notes and even made me feel comfortable. As a marketing consultant I gather quite a bit of data and process it. For my family case I had done the same thing naturally. All Dwight had to do was talk strategy and review the evidence. I wanted to proceed directly to trial. Dwight instructed me to be quite in a closed court room setting when he was agreeing to something that I was not. Everyone's attorney should represent them in the way they wish to be represented. Dwight instead choose to play court room politics and drag out the case for a period of 8 months, at which point I fired him. I made arrangements to come pick up all of my documents and evidence. I arrived to pick up my items and was informed that I could not have my items, unless I signed off on them. She handed me a piece of paper with a pend and said "sign here." I signed and left, only later did I find out it was a document stating that I owed him money. Dwight billed me for unnecessary reasons. Dwight only looks to serve his best interest. His best interest was dragging out the case. His best interest was in billing me for unwanted services. His best interest was not preparing for trial. His best interest was not in arguing on my behalf. His best interest was his and only his. I am currently exploring my options.

    Dwight D. Darrow’s response: “The rules of ethics that govern attorney conduct prohibit me from making a response to this comment that would disclose information about the client or the nature and extent of my representation of a client. While I might like to do so I cannot and will not. I can say that I take great effort to be fully responsive and loyal to my clients. We have a long standing policy that if a client has any questions about billing, all they need to do is talk to me and I am always glad to make things right. Neither I nor my staff would ever not fully explain a document to a client nor would we trick someone into signing something. That kind of statement is completely unwarranted. I have built a reputation for aggressive representation of my clients no matter who is on the other side or who may disagree with me: opposing lawyer, Guardian Ad Litem or even a Judge. I simply am not and never have been part of the good ole boy network.To suggest I would be interested in "courtroom politics" is not only a first for me (in 35 years of practice) but simply silly. I have built a reputation of moving cases along as quickly as they can be moved. Efficiency is in my best interests and the interest of my clients. Practicing divorce law for thirty-five years has taught me that we often see people at their worst Some of this is understandable. Divorce usually stinks. It is a highly emotional time and not something most people want to go through. I understand this and can, mostly, be very patient with that. There are times when a client will not listen to good advice; acts in a way that is harmful to their case and acts in a way that is threatening to their own attorney. In those situations, it is best for an attorney to ask to be discharged in a case. That can lead to bad feelings. For that I am sorry. Like a marriage, an attorney never enters into a relationship with a client thinking that the relationship will sour and become fraught with conflict. Not a desired result and not a result I am happy with. I have built a reputation for always being prepared for trial and for doing an excellent job at trial. I take great pride in preparing for hearings and trials. My opponents and Judges know me as someone who will always be ready to present evidence in a highly organized and effective manner. I wish I could say more but am constrained to do so. Please consider my response when judging me or the work that I do.”

    I would highly recommend Dwight Darrow at the Darrow and Dietrich Law Firm. Mr. Darrow is extremely knowledgeable in the field of family law. Respected by his peers and meticulous with detail leaving little opportunity for disputes from opposing counsel.

    Mr. Darrow worked very hard on my case, represented me well, provided re-assurance and direction. During a very difficult and contentious divorce Mr. Darrow eased my frustration and worry with an empathic ear, a clear strategy and impeccable execution.

    Thanks to Mr. Darrow I believe my case turned out positive for me. I would never think of using a different attorney and would and have recommended Dwight Darrow to anyone who is in need of an outstanding attorney to get the desired outcome and ease what is more than likely one of the most difficult and painful situations that a person has to endure.
