Darin joined Lathrop Gage after clerking for two federal judges. He first clerked for the Honorable E. Richard Webber, of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. He then clerked for the Honorable Beth Phillips, of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri. Darin worked with each judge to manage a large docket of cases covering many areas of law. He also assisted both judges as they sat by special designation on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
