“Darren is the kind of lawyer you want on your side – hard-working, tenacious, and relentless. I came to him when everything was on the line, and I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. I’m glad I did. You won’t find a better lawyer.”  – Bob Hogan, President, AerReach, LLC

For almost 20 years, Darren has represented plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property disputes and white-collar criminal cases in courts across the country.

With every client, Darren invests the time and effort to identify objectives and tailor a strategy to achieve those goals – whether trying a case, negotiating a settlement, avoiding litigation, or pursuing another option entirely.

Among his most notable cases are the successful representation of plaintiffs in a multi-million dollar lawsuit involving business fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and commercial bribery; a jury verdict awarding 100 percent of requested damages, interest, and attorneys’ fees in a breach of a patent licensing agreement against Forgent Networks; a favorable summary judgment for plaintiff in a breach of contract case stemming from the Texas Ranger Baseball Partners bankruptcy; and a take-nothing judgment and order sealing the case for a client wrongfully accused of fraud and tortious interference with a contract.

Darren began his legal career at the international Washington D.C. based Arnold & Porter LLP in 2001, joined the boutique litigation firm of Sayles Werbner PC in Dallas in 2008, and moved to Burns Charest in 2019.
