Family client
I was looking for a lawyer I could count on, Daryl always returns phone calls in minutes, he is prepared and very professional. He tends to give you his honest opinion. He was referred by two coworkers of mine that said he is the best and they had used his services in the past. Very impressed with his accountability. I could never ask for a better person to represent me.

Looking for the real deal?
I have been very disappointed in the past with Lawyers that promise the moon but fail to deliver anything, several thousand later. Mr Lander was quick, and responsive, and forthcoming with answers. Mr Lander summed up my issue within minutes and offered to meet with me for a fraction of what another attorney had charged me, and had still not solved the issue. I now refer ONLY, Daryl Lander. He is trustworthy and honest.

Mr. Lander has been on my case since 2012. He is still there for me and my children. He has helped me and goes above and beyond!!!!!!! He IS NOT ALL about the money OR cold blooded like other attorney's. Mr. Lander will work with you when other attorneys drop you. Even if he can not take your case he will still hear you out and advice you once while other attorneys don't!!!! Other attorneys will charge you for a consult around $150 or more, but Mr. Lander will give you a free consult. Other attorneys will charge a huge retainer between 5,000 or more, Mr. Lander will work with you. Mr. Lander is a PIT BULL who also cares about his clients. Mr. Lander ALWAYS helps me!

Best Lawyer In Town
Mr. Lander helped me when no one else would. He was not only aware of the laws that pertained to my case, he also knew how to best help me under my circumstances. I read the reviews that claimed Mr. Lander was not prepared or capable. That is totally false. Not only is Mr. Lander always prepared, he was more than capable each time we appeared in court. If it wasn't for Mr. Lander, I am fearful of what would have become of me. In my book, a great Lawyer is someone that not only listens to you, he also is there for you 24/7, and that is definitely Mr. Lander. I highly recommend Mr. Lander to anyone that needs a Lawyer in El Dorado County. He is the Best Lawyer in Town.

Best Family Attorney
I have known Mr. Lander for over 10 yrs. He has never let me down. I've asked him to help and he has immediately taken charge with his expertize. Simplified everything for me to understand, and provides all the advice and counsel and makes it a short process. He care's about his clients, and if he takes your case. You can be assured that Mr. Lander knows what he is doing. I have referred other clients because I knew he would be aggressive and knowledgeable and take care of my closest friends.

Exceptional Service
I find it very suspicious when people are unwilling to give their names in reviewing a lawyer. Especially when I know Mr. Lander is an exceptional attorney, and I would highly recommend him for anyone's legal needs. I retained Mr. Lander for a Family Law Matter, and I can say without question that I would recommend him to anyone and he provided exceptional service. I would not believe anyone that is not willing to put their name on their review. Sonja Morales

Powerful Attorney
I retained DARYL J. LANDER to represent me in an ongoing divorce case when my prior lawyer dropped me on the verge of trial. Mr. LANDER took on my case on the eve of trial, and I am very happy with the results.
Posted by Renee | March 29, 2012
Mr. Lander helped me when others would not. He was very knowledgeable, and did a FANTASTIC job in court. He not only was brilliant in court, he was very organized, and the most sincere and nicest person I have ever met. He helped me to fight my ex when I could not afford to do so. I do not believe the bad reviews I read. They seem VERY suspicious. I think they were written by people that were either on the other side of a case against Mr. Lander, or they probably had their own issues that resulted in whatever happened. Mr. Lander is brilliant and I would recommend him to EVERYONE!

Fantastic Lawyer
Mr. Lander helped me on my child custody case. I had no custody or visitation. Mr. Lander helped me to get time with my kids, and I am working to get more right now. I told Mr. Lander I wanted to tell others about how great he is. I read the reviews on this site. I do not believe the bad reviews. Sounds like they were put there by people that were on the other side. I trust Mr. Lander and know he is a Fantastic Lawyer. I would highly recommend him.

Great Lawyer
I do not believe the reviews posted by the people that say that Mr. Lander is not a great lawyer. He helped me when no one else would. I highly recommend Mr. Lander.

Great Civil Lawyer
Mr. Lander represented me on my civil case. I was sued by people that would not listen to reason. Mr. Lander was the best choice for my lawyer because he convinced the Judge and the other attorneys that I had not done what I was accused of. I ended up not paying anyone, which is only right.

Call If You Need a Lawyer
If you need a good, professional, experienced attorney, who will fight for you, call Daryl J. Lander and Lander & Paul. He helped me when I needed someone to fight for me. He did what my other 2 lawyers couldn't or wouldn't do. He fought until we got what justice deserved. Because of him, I am free.

Great Lawyer
Mr. Lander represented me in my divorce case. He was very professional, and experienced. I received the very best care and treatment. I know that I could not have had any better lawye handle my case.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Lander represented me in a divorce case. He was understanding, professional and highly capable at all times. If I had not retained Mr. Lander, I hate to think what would have happened to me. I never found any instance or time when Mr. Lander was not fully knowledgable of the law and facts of my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Red Flag- Do not recommend
The other negative reviews accurately reflect my experience with this joker of an attorney. He promises to help protect children from domestic violence and endangerment. He even offered a special discount, from a special place in his heart. He became wildly upset when asked to fix the hot mess he made with my case due to “his failure to properly represent his clients”. He then accused me of not paying, but I had the receipt of his payment and he was so disorganized he couldn’t find the original contract. He had me prepare documents and write declarations for months. He missed hearings, didn’t submit evidence or declarations. When he did show up to hearings, he looked like the courtroom jester. The result ? One negative outcome after the other. Those positive reviews? Likely written by him and his secretary. Look up the “divorce” case in which he represented his “secretary”. It’s public record. Report this joker to the State Bar so no one else is duped into being a sideshow for the court room jester.

Don't use this Lawyer, No Admin, No Paralegal support, poor follow through, missed motions, poor Court room skills
Don't use this Lawyer if you expect good results. Same a prior negative reviews. He does not have any support staff, No admin, No Paralegals. Didn't file needed documents with court. Didn't follow Local Court rules for filing on time. Quality of motions was a joke, when new lawyer saw copies she thought I wrote them myself. Will not commit to getting things done and then panics days before court asking me to get all sorts of documents as the last minute that he could have asked for months earlier had he given my case any thought. He talks a good story, He's a NICE guy, but he doesn't deliver as a Family Law Attorney

A poor excuse for legal counsel
Started with The Attorney's Referral Network. I called them and they referred me here. To a bad attorney. Mr. Lander told me he would cut me a deal if I didn't tell the Attorney's Referral Network. Apparently they take a cut. Should have been my first clue. I never saw a BILL. Ever. Never saw a paper. Never received a call-back. He did not do his job. I never knew WHEN we had court. He did not do anything I asked him to do. Yes, I am divorced - but that was all in the works before him. I even asked him to change my name back. That wasn't done either. I'm still hyphenated - at least to DMV and the bank. The only two places that care. He sent me a Substitute of Attorney to withdraw from the case when I complained to my ex-husbands counsel. Yes, I did that. I wondered WHY my own attorney couldn't do his job. SO I asked the opposing counsel. I should perhaps call the State Bar and make a TRUE and valid complaint. And tell them everything. A poor attorney and bad judgement on my part. Don't hire him.

Very Unsatisfied Client
I was very unsatisfied for the following reasons: Phone calls went unreturned on numerous occasions. After the first court date, which didn't go well, he promised to file a motion within a couple months. I couldn't get him to return my call so that we can follow through with the motion as he would indicate he was in court. He promised results that were unfounded and one more than one occasion told me things that were entirely false.

Not Recommended
Daryl Lander represented me in a divorce case and I would never recommend him if you want your case handled well. Agree with the other reviews about his disorganization, very non-responsive, befuddled in court, and overall very disappointing. Steer clear here.
