Civil Litigation/Mediator/Appeals:

Darol’s philosophy is that the client deserves an attorney with a scope and depth of experience to serve the client as either a plaintiff or defendant in every aspect of the litigation.

Darol career objective was to become a consummate civil trial lawyer with bench and jury trial experience in every type of case. That experience today includes over 50 jury trials to verdict and 50 bench trials to ruling, along with countless complex evidentiary civil hearings. The range of courts includes numerous Florida circuit courts, and federal courts in Florida, California, Pennsylvania, and Texas. His court room experiences often place him center of high profile multimillion dollar business matters or the financial recovery for catastrophically injured clients or the survivors of a wrongful death victim against major insurance companies. Those include cases such as trucking, automobile, and motorcycle accidents as well as product liability. Believing your lawyer should know every aspect of a case, he also defends companies and individuals in these same type cases. Darol litigates a case with diligent tenacity.
