Don is a lifelong Delaware County resident. He went to both grade school and high school in Chester where he was a contemporary of Murray Eckell, his future partner.
He attended Drew University, graduating summa cum laude, and, upon graduation from college, married his lovely wife, Ann. He then attended Duke University School of Law, graduating with his J.D. degree in 1958. He set about the practice of law in the City of Chester.
After some prodding from his old friend Murray Eckell, Eckell and Sparks was formed in 1964 and has grown consistently ever since. With a primary emphasis on domestic relations work, Don also practices criminal, labor, real estate and estate law.
He is especially proud of his three sons and grandchildren. Don is a partner in a prestigious Wilmington, Delaware firm. Jeffrey is a doctor of internal medicine in North Carolina and Steven is a lawyer representing the Nemours Foundation in Jacksonville, Florida.
Don has the designated title “of counsel” indicating his retirement and transition to part-time work with the firm.
