Darla K. Snead

I selected Ms. Snead from right here on avvo. After seeing her excellent rating I decided to hire her to handle my accident case. Her paralegal, Melissa set up an interview at their office. They took down all my info and began legal proceedings. I was kept up to date the whole time and finally, at the end I was asked to come in and sign a few papers. I was then handed a settlement check in an amount that I was very satisfied with. Everything was handled with professionalism and courtesy. If I ever need a lawyer again, Darla Snead will be the lawyer that I hire. Thank you very much!

A Grateful Client

To whom ever may choose to consider the Law Office of Darla K Snead,

The office of Darla K Snead, her paralegal, Melissa and and her entire team proved to me that they are amongst the most compassionate, thorough and professional team I have ever encountered. Coming to Lakeland and originally residing, being raised and working amongst some of greatest professionals the meet and exceed what is defined as excellence.

It is extremely difficult to find simply “ONE” individual to meet such high standards. To find an entire team of professionals that meet such a high bar is almost an impossibility. This very quality was astounded by. It was my great honor to have such professional and compassionate team members and legal minds in the business of representing lives. And for this It is my wish to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. It is my recommendation that anyone considering legal representation consider this law firm before making any decisions.

Sincerely and Humbly yours,

I was pleased with services provided by Darla Snead

Darla Snead represented me in my dissolution of marriage case. When I visited attorney Snead’s office in Lakeland, I felt relaxed and at ease. Although I felt there shouldn’t have been no entitlement for the other party, Darla quickly explained no case is a win/win. I appreciated the fact Darla was upfront and set expectation. Her paralegal Melissa is a superstar as well.

Highly recommend Attorney Snead

Darla Snead is an excellent attorney. She handled my divorce case very well. I knew in my heart before the consult was over that I would hire her.
I’d already had 2 other consults .
Ms. Sneads knowledge and experience combined with her personal character is the reason I chose her to represent me.

My divorce case moved along quickly even though it involved children and timesharing.

She has perfectly balanced herself as an accomplished successful attorney with the human side that genuinely has compassion and concern for her clients.
THAT is what stood out about her to me.
Highly recommended Attorney Snead 🙂

Darla Snead goes above and beyond her duties as an attorney.
She handled our daughter’s case for 2 1/2 years and gave her 100%. Through her hard work and countless hours, our daughter was released free of all charges. We thank her very much for all that she has done and continues to do for our family.
We highly recommend Darla Snead.

Efficiency – with a heart!

After difficulties with another attorney and only a few weeks prep-time before the final hearing, this attorney did not shy away from my complex divorce case – which involved missing and dissipated assets, complex inherited and joint properties and an uncooperative spouse. She and her staff had only a few weeks prep-time before the final hearing but they worked hard and as a team with me to glean effective arguments from an almost 4-ft stack of financial paperwork. Ms. Snead is very detail oriented and this also helped to pinpoint critical documentation that had previously gone unnoticed. By the hearing, Ms. Snead had all documentation needed to supply proofs to the court of dissipation of my home and financial assets – plus my need and his ability to pay. The overwhelming stacks had been reduced, color-coded and organized into a neat little file system that allowed her to lay hands on paperwork immediately when needed before the judge. It should be said that I am legally disabled and had been told by the former attorney I would probably walk away from a marriage of 34 years with little or nothing due to my husband’s financial chicanery. In spite of an unsympathetic court system, Ms. Snead was able to secure some compensation for me for a dissipated funds – plus alimony over what the opposing attorney had suggested. The communication with this attorney and her staff was excellent throughout the process and while there was efficiency – this was also tempered with knowledge, compassion and honesty about what could be achieved within the constraints of the Polk County court system. I will always be grateful for the effort given – which was far above and beyond what I had expected based on my previous experience. Ms. Snead understood that was about my future ability to survive with no means of support and some serious health issues and she argued accordingly. There were no negative or detrimental surprises before the judge – as I had experienced previously. She always conferred with me first, listened to my wishes, gave her honest evaluation and unfailingly kept my best interests at the fore. I just wish I had found this expert legal team from the start and I believe I would have been saved much stress and emotional trauma.

Superb Attorney

I had an old legal matter that required immediate resolution due to my line of work. I found Mrs. Darla Snead after an extensive search online for local attorneys. None of the attorneys I contacted were as genuinely concerned as Mrs. Darla Snead.
I chose Mrs. Snead to represent me and it was the best decision I made; she kept me up to date with my case and was very attentive to any concerns that came up. Mrs. Snead presented the case in a very convincing manner and ultimately the ruling was in my favor.
If you need a caring, reliable and affordable attorney then Mrs. Darla Snead is the attorney you need. Don’t go to court without her.

Couldn’t Have Made it Without Her

Darla help me file an injunction against my wife for child abuse and domestic violence. Then she help me with filing for divorce.
The whole process took over a year, but Darla helped me get to as fair a resolution as I guess was possible.
Darla is the most down to earth, knowledgeable, and easy-to-talk-to attorney I think anyone could ever ask for.
I really needed that during this most difficult time of my life.
I couldn’t have made it without her.

Profesional representation at it’s best!

Once again we leave the court room with a WIN! Darla Snead has represented me on 2 cases and both times she has shown an exceptional understanding of law and personal interest in seeing my case to the end with an outcome “NOT GUILTY”. I would say to all “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR WITH DARLA”.. Having a conspiracy against me, my situation was imperative that I had the right counsel on my side, her aggresive tactics, research and thought process is unlike any other. Some lawyers are just interested in taking your money then try to cop a plea for you- This is not Darla at all. Her fee was more then fair for my case, I would say if you find a cheaper lawyer you may end up paying more in the end.. The whole point with hiring a Lawyer is to walk away not guilty and with Darla thats exactly how I walked away. Because of Darla I am able to do the things that a Felon can’t do and retained my rights. When making my choice for a lawyer for the first time, it made sence to hire a professional counsler who would command attention in the court room.. She was not afraid to directly approach the DA on my behalf on several occasions. I trusted Darla to the end and she got me my life back! Thanks Darla!

Great Attorney!

I’ve used Darla several times over the years. She will go above and beyond for her client’s to make sure they get the best outcome possible. Darla always kept me informed and up to date on my case’s. She’s also very pleasant to deal with and has reasonable rates. I personally have never left the courtroom with a negative outcome using Darla. You wont find an Attorney that will work harder for you. I say this because I know, she’s represented me for over 10 years.

Fantastic Representation

Darla is an excellent Attorney. I can’ recommend her highly enough.
1. She is accessible
2. She is knowledgeable and thorough
3. Darla is going to think about your case and leave no stone unturned and communicate with you. She gets your input on the facts, so you get informed representation.
4. Then for me, after getting the best possible outcome, she went back and worked for a better outcome.
5. If you have ever needed representation, you know how rare and critically important these traits are.
