Darren is one of the great legal minds in the sports & entertainment community. If there was such a thing as hitting for the cycle in law, Darren has done it. Darren is an accomplished legal scholar, litigator, and transactional attorney. I highly recommend this attorney. – Martin Fischman, Attorney and NFL Agent
