Daryl's legal work for a number of years has primarily been limited to the representation of property owners in Washington State eminent domain matters. In the course of such work he has represented hundreds of owners in cases involving numerous jurisdictions including the State of Washington, counties, ports, cities, Sound Transit, the Seattle Popular (or perhaps not so popular) Monorail Authority, railroads, school districts, utility districts, and fire districts. He has spoken on condemnation issues on several occasions at continuing legal education seminars. Also, at the invitation of representatives of the State legislature and the condemnation task force, he has reviewed and made suggestions regarding proposed condemnation legislation.
Daryl is a life long resident of the Seattle area. He and his wife Janelle were married on the summit of Mt. Rainier, and have four daughters. In his spare time he enjoys running, hiking, biking, swimming, reading early American history, making furniture, and gardening.
