Darby received a significant number of 4+ stars in 2014
Posted by Zach | December 17, 2014
Darby was a life saver
Darby helped guide me through the personal injury process when I was hit by a car on my motorcycle.I had no health insurance and had no med pay on my insurance,he helped me find medical treatment and referred me to services to help me financially as I was between jobs.He went above and beyond with my case,made sure that I was able to receive medical care and checked on my progress often.I hired Darby on the referral of a friend who used him for an auto accident,without him I would likely still be dealing with the run around from the insurance company. He was able to resolve everything very quickly once I was done with treatment,even getting me a higher settlement then I thought I would get.

Would recommend to anyone for worker's compensation
I worked with Darby in regards to a several year worker's compensation case. At his office, Gloria called the division and made sure we had all the information he needed for him to help me. He was extremely patient with me and answered every single one of my many questions. His advice and plan of action were in my best interest and I felt confident in his care of my case. Darby is professional and personable, he made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I never felt like he was just out to make himself money; he truly cared about what would be right for me. I would recommend to any of my family and friends.

Honest and Professional
Dardy Hoggatt represented me when I was rear-ended in a car accident. Every step of the way I was treated with utmost respect, kindness and transparency regarding my case. He took the time to call me often to inform me of any developments in the case and kept me in the know throughout the whole process. He explained the different legal jargon and made me aware of all my options. Darby is not only a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer, but a decent and kind person as well. His office staff was caring, professional and efficient. I would highly recommend him to anyone that has a personal injury and is in need of a lawyer

Great work ethics
Darby was extremely helpful in guiding me the right way. He brought up some questions that I did not think about and answers I had no clue to. By far one of the best lawyers and honest that I have met. He did not take my case because that's how honest he was. He said my work comp was doing everything right. And i already went through all the hoops on my own. Thank you Darby.

Darby Hoggatt is an Excellent Attorney
I hired Darby in November of 2006 to represent me in a wrongful death suit against my late husband's employer. My world had collapsed upon the loss of my husband, I was vulnerable, and confused. Darby took control of each and every aspect of my case with clarity, honesty and compassion. His legal expertise won me a fair settlement, but it was his attention to my well being throughout the grueling process that made him a life long friend and confidante. I highly recommend Darby, Gloria and his legal team to provide anyone with the absolute highest standard of legal care.

I referred a matter to him as a Colorado lawyer that I could not handle from my practice in California
My daughter's husband had been killed in an automobile collision whil he was on the fob. The case involved both a worker's compensation claim against his employer and the recovery under a personal life insurance policy under which my daughter was the beneficiary. The matter was very complicated because the defendants both tried to escape liability by showing drugs or alchohol were involved. DLH did an excellent job in effecting full recoveries in both matters.

Employment
Darby is very familiar with the law and made certain that I had a clear understanding of my employee rights. I would recommend Darby to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Made me feel taken care of and protected.
My case was complicated,we had jurisdiction issues along with several different insurance companies. Darby was able to get every issue resolved and was even involved in finding me doctors who were willing to treat my injuries from being hit by a semi,while on the job and in a different state.He guided me through the process,made it a priority to call me to make sure treatment was going OK and checking on my progress.He was able to find another attorney in Nebraska to work directly with in order to complete every stage in my case.I'm so thankful that I was able to be his client,without him I don't feel as if I would have gotten the insurance companies involved to give me what I deserve for the permanent injuries I received. It was a long process but he was with me every step of the way.

Skilled and pasionate advocate.
I am a Fort Collins attorney, with a state wide practice representing employers in workers' compensation matters . I have tried dozens of cases against Mr Hoggatt over the years, and consider him to be one of the very best attorneys representing injured workers in Colorado today. He is a skilled and passionate advocate for his clients, and I recommend him in the highest possible terms. If I had a friend or family member injured on the job, this is who I would recommend.

Truly Blessed to have met Mr Darby
Mr Darby Hoggatt was very professional, and helped me receive the benefits I needed in a timely fashion. I would suggest that everyone in need of great representation go with his Law Firm. They will treat you like family. -T.Williams

Amazing!
Hoggatt Law is the best of the best! Darby went above and beyond to help me get what I deserved. In the end, we settled quicker than both of us thought, and I couldn't have been happier with the results!

Good attorney
Mr. Hoggatt was very professional and responsive to my needs. With such a extremely schedule, Mr. Hoggatt gives you the time you ask for and then some. I remember that he gave me his personal cell # so that I may reach him on a Saturday to discuss a very important topic rather than waiting until Monday. He also did this while at his son's baseball game. Mr. Hoggat certainly needs to be recognized for his dedication to his profession and his clients. Thank you Mr. Hoggatt!
