About Darren Richardson

Darren grew up in the rural community of Herriman, Utah, where he worked on his Grandfather’s farm.  Darren worked side-by-side with his grandfather from early childhood until he graduated high school.  Working on the farm instilled in him an appreciation for hard work and doing things the right way. Most importantly, working on the farm taught him the importance of family and how proper planning can protect families for generations.

At age 19, Darren served a two-year mission for his church in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. A few years after returning from Canada, he graduated cum laude from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies.  While pursuing his degree, Darren worked for USAA as an insurance advisor to military personnel and their families nationwide and abroad.

Darren earned his Juris Doctor degree from Phoenix School of Law in May 2013. During his time at law school, he served as a law clerk for the Arizona Governor’s Office of General Counsel, where he worked on all aspects of litigation that affect the Governor’s office and issues that directly affect the State of Arizona.  In addition, he served as the Sections Committee Chairman of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society and recently served as co-editor of the published work, Starting A Law Practice and Professionalism for New Lawyers. Darren started as an intern for Morris, Hall and Kinghorn in the spring of 2011, and upon passing the Arizona bar exam, accepted an associate position with the firm.

Darren and his lovely wife Melissa have been married for 10 years and are the proud parents of three beautiful children, Guyene, Nolan, and Cora. Darren enjoys the outdoors, and in particular, he enjoys camping, fishing, and golfing. Although he lives in Arizona, Darren is a big fan of the San Francisco 49ers and the Utah Jazz.
