Darin Colburn’s first encounter with the legal system was during his parents’ divorce, which began when he was six years old and ended when he was twelve. More than twenty years later, having helped hundreds of clients navigate the murky waters of divorce, custody, and family law disputes, Darin tells many of his clients what he wishes someone would have told his parents back in the day: take a deep breath and don’t let the past stop you from building a better future.
It may have taken decades, but Darin’s parents are now friends, and both wish they had handled matters differently. In particular, they both have independently shared their regret over spending an exorbitant amount of money on legal fees during their divorce.
