Darrel is one of the greatest legal minds I have had the pleasure to work with over the years. He is an asset to the legal profession, offering each of his clients a unique combination of legal expertise, experience and compassion.

When I sold our home I used Darrel’s services to close the sales transaction. We had a last-minute issue and Darrel went out of his way to resolve the issue and educate the seller’s lawyer on how to finalize the transaction. He was able to solve the problem, eliminate any stress and put all parties at ease. Darrel always presents himself in a professional manner, with a positive attitude. I have referred several clients to Darrel and he is also handling my purchase of our new home. Darrel is OUR lawyer now and we are fortunate to know him.

I have the pleasure of serving with Darrel Hotz on the Board of Directors of a local charity called H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everywhere) Toronto, Inc. Darrel also volunteers as HOPE’s Vice President. Darrel strives for accuracy. He comes to meetings prepared and his ideas are well thought out and properly introduced. Darrel is reliable, trustworthy and dedicated.
Dan Korey

President, H.O.P.E.

Darrel Hotz was the President of the Board of Directors of our condo building for many years. As the second President of the Board of the building, he set the standard for how the building was run and continues to be run to this day. During his time as President he kept up his law practice, got married, and had his first child and eventually needing more space moved out of the building having made it a better place to live for all of us. Darrel always had the time to listen to the concerns of owners and attended all the social events to be able to meet and talk to his fellow residents. His legal expertise was always a welcome addition to the management office and to his fellow Board members. Once he knew he would be leaving the building he stepped aside as President but stayed on the Board to nurture the new President and helped her grow into the job. During his time on the Board, Darrel was very conscientious, thorough, kind, honest and above all caring.

Darrel has been mine and my late husband’s lawyer for 20 years. He assisted us with many real estate transactions during this period. He is very approachable and knowledgeable.

Darrel helped us when we purchased our first home. He spent the time to help us understand the paperwork we were signing. We are happy to recommend him to our friends.

My experience with Darrel was excellent. He was friendly, thorough, explained everything and made sure I understood what we spoke about, giving ample opportunity to ask questions.

The process was smooth and efficient. I would recommend anyone looking to create a will and powers of attorney to seek Darrel’s services.

I would highly recommend Darrel and Barb for all your legal needs. The information sheet that they send off to you for your will makes the process very easy and once we met, Darrel was very thorough in explaining everything and made any little changes that we had.”

They were very flexible when it came to booking a meeting time and most gracious even though we needed to bring our children with us. Should I need any legal help in the future I will most definitely contact them.
