While our 3 kids were in primary public school, and a school nurses knew nothing of holistic medicine, integrated with an MD's practice. She called Social Services and alleged that we were harming our kids with our questionable holistic treatments. We were immediately called and informed that they were coming to take our kids away from us. We were in complete shock, and asked Daryl for help. He quickly took our concerns that our kids were going to be taken away from us, and that the Social Services agent would discuss their concerns with us later, while out kids were taken out of our home! Daryl negotiated a meeting with the agent and his 2 RN nurses that would come to our home to look at our extensive documentations, why often times we had to integrate holistic and MD services. Our kids had many food and prescription allergies, causing us to use Integrative Medicine doctors. Daryl was present at the meeting, and answered questions for us, and made make certain that nothing was abruptly done by the County agent . After they reviewed our extensive binders of documents per child, and the long list of MD specialist that were also consulted, the County agents, cleared the allegations, and excused themselves. My husband and I felt confident that Daryl would protect our family, from those terrible allegations. Without hesitation, we will hire Daryl if we should once again, face any serious concerns. Few attorneys have the well developed negotiations skills, prompt development of a case, and bring a speedy resolution. We will always be grateful to Daryl, that our family was protected with his superior legal and professional talents.
