Daryl Swarts

We feel most fortunate to have had the honor and privilege of working with Daryl Swarts. He was a leader, mentor and most importantly a friend to us all. His contributions to our firm are not quantifiable, but we are certain they will have a lingering effect for us, our clients and the transactions we continue to engage. For this we are very grateful.
