My story began back when I was approximately twelve years old. My family moved from Utah to California in June of 1989. We loved the sunshine and beauty of San Diego. We marveled that you could walk outside on December 25th and wear just a t-shirt. It was such a drastic change from what we had experienced when in Utah. My father began working as a carpet cleaner. He learned the trade from an already established company – Woodfield Brothers Chem-Dry. He enjoyed the work and was really good at it. Eventually, he began working for The Carpet Consultants, a sister company of Woodfield Brothers Chem-Dry. The Carpet Consultants had so much work that they could not do it all. They asked my father if he wanted to take over the North County area since we lived in the area. The Carpet Consultants of Escondido was born. They used the name but it was solely owned by my parents. I began helping my parents with the business. It was a unique opportunity to see how a business was run and to get to spend time with my family. I saw first hand the ups and downs of a small business. I know what it is like to deal with vendors, creditors, and clients.
Several years ago, I was trying to figure out how I wanted to change the world. I settled on becoming a neurosurgeon (what can I say I’m a go big or go home sort of guy), but then I had to take calculus. It was a required course for the science classes I needed and a lot of medical schools required it as well. I attempted to take calculus five or six times. I just could not get a good enough grade in it. I bought books. I went to tutoring. I did everything but get a private tutor (I could not afford one). I realized that medical school was just not in the cards.
After additional soul searching, I realized that I did not have to go to medical school to change the world. I remembered what it felt like to struggle with my parents business. I remembered the frustration and angst that came with trying to find clients and pay the bills. I realized that helping small businesses was my opportunity to change the world. I realized that I may not be able to change everyone’s world but I could change the world for some businesses. The dream of Darcy Law began. I knew that it would take years of hard work and education, but in the end, if I could make life easier and businesses more profitable it would be amazing. I could give to others what I wish my parents would have had.
I began my journey to opening Darcy Law by enrolling in a Master of Business Administration program at National University. I decided that financial management was the area I could help businesses the most. Afterall, the one thing I knew that was that businesses always struggled with having enough capital (unless you are Apple but we do not need to go there). I completed the degree by writing a business plan for a law practice.
After earning my MBA, I went on to California Western School of Law in San Diego. I spent my time working towards a Business Law Concentration. I earned the concentration with honors. I received the highest grade in two of my classes.
I took the California State Bar and passed on my first attempt.
I opened Darcy Law to help businesses like my parents succeed. I help entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses with their legal needs to provide a strong foundation upon which they can grow and develop to provide for themselves and loved ones. I am here to change your world.
