failure is not an option

Darryl opened the doors of Garner Law Firm in 2004, but his legal experience didn’t start there. After being admitted to the Missouri State Bar in 1998, he worked as a Criminal Defense attorney for the Missouri Public Defender’s Office. During this time, he provided legal representation to indigent defendants in misdemeanor and felony cases and gained a great deal of valuable insight into the workings of the Missouri criminal justice system.

In 1999, Darryl went into private practice for a Mid-Sized firm that focused primarily on criminal defense, Social Security disability, and bankruptcy.

In 2004, Darryl started his own practice in Joplin, Missouri. Since that time he has developed a reputation throughout  Jasper, Newton and McDonald counties as a dedicated attorney who provides zealous and  affordable legal services. He looks forward to many more years of serving his friends and neighbors in the greater Joplin-Neosho area.
