I had a great experience with Darnell Smith of South Coast Law Group.
I would highly recommend him if you're dealing with a separation/custody/child/support situation and you want some serious, no BS advice.
I found him to be highly professional, very personable, and most importantly, very straight forward and direct.
Darnell is not one of those lawyers that is going to sugar coat things and promise you the moon, and that is what I appreciated the most about my interaction with him. He gave it to me straight. He told me exactly where I stood with no BS and no false promises. He didn't try to give me a bunch of false hope in an attempt to get me to retain his services and waste my money when it could be much better spent supporting my kids.
More than that - he didn't treat me like a paycheck. He treated me with the utmost respect and he took the TIME to talk to me, hear my story , consider my situation, and then give me his honest opinion. To him, I was a father going through a horrible time and a horrible situation and it was obvious to me that he wanted to help to the best of his abilities.
If you want someone who isn't going to just try to rack up billable hours, is going to see you as a human being going through something, and who is going to do his best for you, I suggest that you give this man - a father himself - a call.
