Darryl joined TLR Law in 2020 after his call to the Manitoba Bar earlier the same year. Before practicing law, Darryl enjoyed a successful career as a professional musician most notably as Principal Second Violin with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. He now is a board member for the Winnipeg Youth Orchestras. While Darryl still finds time to fine tune his skills as a violinist, he now focuses on the practice of law, having earned his Juris Doctor at the University of Manitoba where he received a Schwartz/Reisman scholarship for academic excellence and community involvement, and the Judge Ross A. Johnston Prize for Family Law. His practice includes TLR’s core areas of wills and estates, real estate, and corporate matters, though he has also been known to delve into other fields.

Darryl enjoys spending time with his two girls and connecting with families at their dance schools or horseback riding lessons. He comes from a bilingual household, having learned to speak French with the help of his Montréalaise fiancée and talented WSO violinist Julie. Julie and their two daughters have mastered the collective “sad puppy look” to ask Darryl to approve unwise plans such as adopting large litters of tiny kittens (“Papa, can we keep them?”). Darryl has been known to take in fresh air on his bike or by walking through Fort Whyte’s scenic nature trails.
