My experience in hiring Darryl was very positive. I was always able to reach him or his staff. He and his staff are kind and courteous and the information they gave me was always very clear. However in my opinion what impressed me the most was that Mr Longworth was very diligent and doing what he said he was going to do when he said he was going to do it. He did not procrastinate and that is something you don't find very often anymore. Excellent quality of service far greater than what he charges for his services.

When I first started trying to get my issue taken care of, I didn't know where to begin. So I started looking for a lawyer and stumbled upon Mr. Longworths #. So I called him up and explained my situation to him. Let me tell you that what I thought was going to be like a long rocky process, Mr. Longworth made it snappy. I highly recommend Mr. Longworth. He is very professional, and most importantly very trustworthy. Hands down, if I ever have another situation, he will be my go to lawyer.
