About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

WE WANT TO HELP WITH YOUR BUSINESS OR REAL PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS, AND YOUR LEGAL DISPUTES.

 

I believe that the most successful people are able to balance their individual goals within a team concept.  At Bonita Vista High School near San Diego, I was first team all-league in football and soccer, and both teams competed in the playoffs my senior year.

 

At the University of California, Santa Barbara, I worked hard and achieved an overall grade point average of 3.78, which was in the top 4% of my graduating class, and graduated with "High Honors".

 

In law school at the University of California, Davis (which is typically ranked in the top 25 law schools in the United States), I participated in many extra-curricular activities and ultimately graduated in the top 20% of my class.

 

I have been practicing law with Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger, ALC, in Palm Springs since 1992.  Our law firm is the oldest firm in the area, having been formed in 1951.

 

I have been a shareholder of our law firm for over ten years, and my areas of practice include business, real estate, banking and finance, Indian law, litigation, and many others.

 

I am currently a Commissioner on the Palm Springs Parks and Recreation Commission, the President of the Palm Springs Lion's Club, on the Board of Directors and a coach/referee for AYSO soccer, a volunteer for Law Day in local school system and more.

 

I enjoy people and look forward to serving your legal needs.

Very satisfied client
6/12/13 My sister and I were very interested in starting our own restaurant. The idea of setting up the business was intimidating to say the least. After retaining David as our attorney all of our apprehension disappeared. He covered the different ways of setting up our business explaining the advantages of going with a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in easy to understand terms, keeping us informed every step of the way. I’m very impressed with his accessibility; I can contact him any time, either by phone or email. David handles himself in a very professional manner, always giving sound advice. And his services are very reasonably priced. Moving forward, I will continue to seek David’s legal advice.

Complex Real Property Case
We brought an interesting case to Mr. Darrin that required him to be extremely methodical and creative throughout the process. Mr. Darrin navigated the complexity of the case as a seasoned professional. Not only did we prevent the defendant from walking away with all of our money, we controlled the disbursement of funds that were held in escrow until we came to a full and mutually beneficial resolution. I’d highly recommend Mr. Darrin for Real Estate and Business matters.

Excellent Attorney
I am currently working with Mr. Darrin on a case where locating a participating partner has been very difficult. Although we have not made definitive contact yet, we are working on several excellent leads thanks to the work of Mr. Darrin and his supporting team of experts. I am optimistic we will reach a satisfactory conclusion to this case very soon. Regardless of the eventual outcome, the process of working with Mr. Darrin has been delightful, very professional, and most congenial with excellent progress to date. I recommend Mr. Darrin very highly and would work with him without hesitation should the need arise.
