Daren E. Hengesbach

Daren E. Hengesbach is a Partner with Murchison & Cumming, LLP, focusing his practice on representing school districts, public entities and their employees. In addition, he represents property owners, drivers, businesses and their employees in tort litigation, often involving catastrophic injury. Having grown up in Claremont, Mr. Hengesbach has devoted his 20+ year career to servicing clients in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, as way of giving back to the community in which he grew up.

After graduating from Claremont McKenna College, as a four year varsity letterman for the baseball team, Mr. Hengesbach followed his passion for education by becoming a math teacher before enrolling in law school. His background in competitive sports taught him intuition and determination, both skills that he has brought into his career as a lawyer.

Mr. Hengesbach began trying multiple civil cases to verdict as a lead trial attorney early on in his career with his first wrongful death trial resulting in a defense victory. Most recently, Mr. Hengesbach obtained a defense verdict in a high profile case via motion for summary judgment, which was appealed unsuccessfully to the court of appeal and California Supreme Court.

Prior to joining Murchison & Cumming, Mr. Hengesbach headed his own law firm, Furness & Middlebrook, originally founded in 1978. The firm later became known as Hengesbach & Dawson. He is a Fellow of the American Board of Trial Advocates and was elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates in 2011.

Mr. Hengesbach continues to play sports at a competitive level and is a father of two teenage sons who prides himself on quality family time.
