  • Marcus L Landsberg IV

    Since the Supreme Court decided that criminal defense attorneys are required to look into the immigration consequences of every case, Mr. Takeno has become my go-to resource answering all problems, no matter how convoluted or basic, with a patience that I rarely see in fellow lawyers. I have referred multiple immigration cases to Daryl and all were highly satisfied. I have heard from personal friends that he was calm and patient with them as he walked them through the necessary procedures to naturalize their wives. I also had him step into a particular deportation case and navigate the thorns with tact and knowledge. For immigration issues, Daryl is the person I trust explicitly.
