About
My mission is to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals get legal services for fair and reasonable prices. Wherever possible, I offer flat/fixed fees rather than hourly work to help lower your legal costs and align our interests. I specialize in contract law and focus on making sure your contract is clear, protects your interests and meets your needs. You can expect fast, straightforward communication from me, making sure you understand every step. With my experience, you'll get a detailed review of your contract at a fair, fixed price, without any surprises.

I have over 30 years of business and legal experience that I bring

"Trust and shared experiences are important to me in a working relationship, and why I selected Darryl for this work. He is clear on his website about what he offers, and what he doesn't. Since he previously worked in the corporate world and started his own business, I felt like he could relate to my experience vs. looking at it purely through the lens of the law. Darryl was relatable, knowledgeable, and I felt like he really listened to me. I appreciated his advice, and the end result was a crisp independent contractor agreement and clarity on the path forward in my particular situation. I would 100% recommend working with Darryl."
