One of the reasons the Daniel Stark Law family works so hard to be a successful local business is our desire to support our local community. Through the month of October, we are proud to partner with one of our favorite local groups, the Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley, by donating $1 for every new Facebook follower. All you have to do is “Like” Daniel Stark Law on Facebook between now and October 31, and we’ll donate $1 to the organization.
