I have over 20 years of legal experience.

I have been practicing law for more than 20 years.  I passed the Florida bar and earned my law license in 1997.  I have also been licensed to practice law in Illinois since 1998.  I began my career as an Assistant State Attorney in Polk County, Florida and then began practicing law in Illinois.  During that time, I practiced in the areas of Criminal Law, Family Law and Medical Malpractice as a litigation attorney.

In 2003, I returned to Lakeland, Florida, and accepted a Civil Litigation position as an associate working as a trial attorney in an Insurance Defense Law Firm where I represented clients in auto accident and personal injury cases.  Within three years, I became a partner in that Law Firm until I transitioned to a solo law practice that allowed me to expand my areas of practice to include Divorce and Family  Law cases.

Darla K. Snead, P.L. was founded in 2009 as a law firm dedicated to providing quality legal services while maintaining personalized service for each client.  I and my staff strive to provide the best possible representation for your legal needs.

Divorce & Family Law

Family relations create a host of legal consequences.  But with the legal assistance of a caring family law attorney, you can be confident that your legal rights are protected during this time of instability.

Auto Accident Law

Unfortunately, auto accidents may result in long lasting and serious injuries.  Without an experienced  personal injury attorney fighting for you, there is a possibility that you may not recover the maximum amount of damages that you are entitled.

Personal Injury

Personal injury cases can consist of many types of cases that result in the injury of a person. Sometimes, in severe accidents, the death of a friend or family member may result. Ms. Snead has experience litigating many types personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Paternity and Parental Rights

Establishing paternity and parental rights and obligations is critical when a child is born to unwed parents. Establishing paternity is similar to the process of addressing children’s issues in a divorce proceeding.

Parenting Plans

The care and upbringing of children following a divorce is often an ongoing conflict for divorcing parents.  Florida has a preference for shared parental responsibility for children and therefore, Florida utilizes parenting plans and time sharing.

Child Support

Child support involves the parents’ financial support of children and the exact amount will depend on each parent’s financial situation as well as the needs of the children.


Criminal Defense

In Florida, there are two general categories of crimes: felonies and misdemeanors.  If you have been charged with any crime, it is important not to discuss the details of your case with anyone except an attorney.
