Thank you!
Darla is a fantastic lawyer who did a phenomenal job getting my charges deferred and dismissed. I would highly recommend her as she is not only extremely positive and friendly, but also goes above and beyond at her job

Darla is the best Attorney there is and has gone above and beyond for me as she will for you.
Darla is the best Attorney there is and went above and beyond for my family and me. I was in a lot of trouble in more ways then one and Darla went above and beyond for me. With out her help I really don't know what I would have done. Hiring Darla was the best thing that my family and I have ever done and I am forever so great full. I forever owe Darla a debt of gratitude for all that she has done for my family and me. She will talk with you and not at you and she really listens and takes the time to make sure that you understand what is going on and will fight for you all the way. Thank you so much Darla Schuman I wish there were more people like you in this world.

Darla is fantastic. She is genuine and honest. She truly made me feel as though she was on my side and not just because I had hired her to be on my side. I fortunately had positive outcome after positive outcome throughout my legal issues and Darla is 100% to thank for that.
