  3. Darla helped me through a difficult time sharing case. My son’s father appeared after 4 years and decided he wanted to see him. I was a crying mess at my consultation and Darla put me at ease. Her office staff is so sweet. Melissa (the paralegal) answered all my questions and forwarded the ones she needed clarification on to Darla. I was quite emotional throughout the process and the staff was very supportive. We were able to settle at mediation and come to a reasonable agreement. The number 1 reason I hired Darla is she is honest and she made me feel comfortable and confident. If you are going into a time sharing case, I would recommend Darla any day.

  5. Anyone needing representation for a bodily injury claim look no further… Darla and all of her associates were very organized and professional. She went above and beyond my expectations. I am a very cautious person when it comes trusting someone so when looking for representation I did my homework. Well worth it!! If you’re looking for an attorney that will truly dedicate her time into your case give Darla a call. You won’t be disappointed.

  9. The office of Darla K Snead, her paralegal, Melissa 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

    August 25, 2017
  15. 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. Snead’s 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 🙂

    February 14, 2017
  16. We could not ask for a better Lawyer. 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.

  18. I had hired Darla for a solicitation case that I had gotten into this year around July. Darla was very adept in handling the case and had lot of foresight in dealing with issues that may come up in the case and accordingly advised me and guide me through the case. I will be retaining her for any future consultations that I need on this case.

  25. 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.

  26. Miss Snead. Done a good job showing the courts that the plaintiff had no grounds for her injunction. Her no quit attitude shows the quality of Professional in her job.

    April 19, 2015
  27. 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.

    January 24, 2015
  28. Darla is an excellent lawyer who goes above and beyond to do her best, she is easy to talk to and lets you know right from the start what will be happening with your case till the end. couldn’t say enough good things about Miss Darla except that I won’t use anyone else.

    November 2, 2013
  29. Ms. Snead was over knowledgeable and always kept me informed about my case.

    October 21, 2013
  30. I was facing 9 months jail time. I hired Mrs. Darla Snead, she got what i wanted (Probation). I highly recommend Mrs. Snead for any charge that you may be facing. She keeps you posted and updated on what’s going on to the fact that you do not have to worry at all. I was very pleased with the outcome. I greatly appreciated her services.

    October 21, 2013
  31. I would like thank Darla Katherine Snead on handling my case. She was a top defense attorney, stands strongly and speaks out for what is right. She gave me assurance and security during this unfortunate confusion case. And thanks to Darla’s excellent work I had a successful outcome. I would highly recommend Darla Katherine Snead to anyone.

    June 27, 2013
  32. Ms. Snead was very thorough and easy to talk to. She took her time to explain everything, set realistic expectations and took her time to make sure we were comfortable. Her follow through was outstanding and she was successfully able to negotiate on our behalf. We were able to get the best possible solution to our all of our cases. It was very important and valuable to us that she showed such a level of sincere concern and commitment. I would not hesitate to use Darla for ANY legal matter and would recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, honest, thorough, effective attorney.

    April 24, 2013
  33. Help us out when we needed help, Ms. Snead is fantastic. I will recommend her to anyone needing a Lawyer.

    February 22, 2013
  34. Darla helped me file an injunction against my wife for child abuse and domestic violence. Then she helped me with filing for divorce. The whole process took over a year, but Darla helped me get to as fair a resolution as fast as 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.

    September 17, 2012
  35. Darla’s diligent work ultimately helped in my case being dismissed by the State Attorney’s Office. Not only did she present herself in a professional manner but made me feel like she genuinely cared about my case.

    August 24, 2012
  36. Darla was very helpful and understanding about everything I had going on, I would and have recommended her to people I know. She was always there when I had questions or concerns about my case. She is a very nice person to have for a lawyer. I will use her again if I ever have to.

    August 21, 2012
  37. 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 aggressive 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 than 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, that’s 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 sense to hire a professional counselor 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!

    June 28, 2012
  38. 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 cases. 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 won’t find an Attorney that will work harder for you. I say this because I know, she’s represented me for over 10 years.

    March 28, 2012
  39. Darla is an excellent Attorney. I can’t 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; and 5). If you have ever needed representation, you know how rare and critically important these traits are.
