Attorney Profile

Sarah A. Darnell is a partner at Lewis, Passons & Darnell, P.C. She has been certified as a specialist in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and she focuses her practice entirely on those types of matters. Located in Denton, Ms. Darnell provides representation to clients throughout the area, including portions of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and she has been admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since 2006.

Ms. Darnell has extensive training and experience in the process of mediation, so she is often able to help her clients who are going through a divorce come to an accord on such issues as parenting time, spousal and child support, and marital property division without them having to go through a protracted and often contentious courtroom battle. However, if the sessions have proven to be unproductive and attempts at negotiating a comprehensive settlement agreement have broken down, she will be a forceful and effective courtroom advocate on their behalf.

In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Darnell has worked with clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who need to have existing support and parenting court orders enforced or modified. Other family law matters that she has worked on have included adoptions and cases in which paternity is at issue.

Ms. Darnell graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in psychology. She then enrolled at the Oklahoma City University School of Law and received her Juris Doctor in 2006. Ms. Darnell has delivered numerous continuing legal education presentations on family law topics, and her professional memberships include the Annette Stewart American Inn of Court and the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.
