Craig A. Darling, Esq., truly has great intentions and the knowledge to help! Don’t waste anymore time, hire him!

Going thru the process of finding a divorce attorney is endless, tiring and extremely emotional. Mr. Darling was full of compassion, patience, and my most trusted confidant from the beginning to end. Yet he was able to provide me with such insight, positivity and really educate me on options. I felt as if i was his only client (even though i wasn’t).

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Craig, he truly has great intentions and the knowledge to help! Don’t waste anymore time, hire him!

Craig Darling, Esq., is an excellent family law attorney

Craig is an excellent family law attorney who cares deeply about his work and his clients, and he comes with the rare and added bonus that he doesn’t ACT like an attorney. He’s humble, kind and caring while being sturdy, confident and experienced. A rare find in an attorney, especially family law. He’s really after his client’s ultimate solution, not creating more problems for billable hours. A true gem in his industry. I highly endorse him.

Craig is by far the most compassionate and trustworthy attorney I have ever met.

Craig is by far the most compassionate and trustworthy attorney I have ever met. I knew I was going to hire him within moments of our phone call because he was the only lawyer that didn’t interrupt me with his “vast knowledge and expertise,” he didn’t try to bait me with fancy credentials, nor did he tell me what “I needed to” or bring up fees and retainers. Instead, he offered words of sympathy and with a genuine ear listened to my predicament and then calmly explained my rights to me and how he could help me. I found that many, many lawyers tried to intimidate me to “act fast” and hire them immediately before my husband did this or that to me etc…

Craig was completely different. He was kind and he always returned my calls and emails and never made me feel rushed or unimportant. He has a very wise and calm demeanor and he knows what he’s doing! I now have received my settlement and I got it quickly! I am so happy that I used Craig for my divorce. Do not hesitate to hire Craig, he will get you everything that you deserve and he will fight for you, your kids, and your home! Every professional that has interest in helping people should take a lesson from Craig.

The Law Office of Craig A. Darling, Inc., is a great find!

I never thought I’d say this about a lawyer, but what a great find. Looking for a lawyer you can trust may be the most nerve racking experience. Who do you trust if none are related? I had called a few to get a feel of who I wanted to work with and Craig seemed to be the most friendly , knowledgeable , and understanding from all. After choosing him to handle my case , it was evident that I had made the right decision. He kept me informed the whole way and made me feel comfortable throughout. He listens to you and has a ton of great suggestions as to what you should and shouldn’t do. He is very skilled in his practice and knows his area of law very well. Choosing a lawyer is just as complicated as choosing a mechanic you’ve never met, but choosing Craig was a great call.

Craig A. Darling, Esq., was able to get my grandkids returned promptly and the entire case dismissed

We were provided less than 24 hours notice that my daughter was to be in court for a child custody case.  We were given Craig’s name and contacted him immediately. He returned our calls in a prompt manner and was a blessing!  Even though we lived 4 1/2 hours away and in another state, Craig was extremely helpful. He gleaned all the necessary info he needed while we were driving into the city.  He was constantly reassuring and unbelievably patient.  He was able to get my grandkids returned promptly and the entire case dismissed.  I only wish he could represent my daughter in AZ!  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!  He was a Godsend to us!!

Craig Darling has turned out to be one of the finest attorneys in Orange County

Craig Darling has turned out to be one of the finest attorneys in Orange County.  He is smart, witty and an outstanding, flawless litigator who will go to bat for you like you’re a family member.
I have an ongoing custody battle from hell going on in Ventura County and while going on a lot of faith that I would continue to pay him, he has made numerous appearances for me and wiped the floor clean with my ex husband’s very unethical and kniving legal team.  He has made me proud and found a great deal of justice for me in a situation that is bordering on right out conspiracy against me.
He believed in me and I believe in him 100%.  He’s not hard on the eyes, either. And he has somehow avoided the pompous, know-all attitude most attorneys seem to be destined to.
All in all, I would recommend Craig a thousand times over.  He is not only my attorney, but I consider him a dear friend.  Hire him and know you’re in the very best hands.

Craig A. Darling, Esq., is an Awesome Attorney!

Craig is an awesome attorney!  I appreciate his services more than anything!  He has stuck by my side more for over a year as the mother of my child has taken me in and out of court making false allegations against me as an attempt to give me less time with my son.  With Craig’s help I have gained more custody of my son and have negotiated a fair child support amount.  Craig is very diligent in his approach, he took the time to listen to my story and all that I was going through.  He sympathized with me and instructed me on the best course of action to get more custody of my son.  I honestly cannot thank Craig enough, he’s seriously the best!  I’d recommend him to anyone.

Hiring Mr. Darling is like having the benefits of a big city law firm but with the care and integrity of a small town practice

Craig was more than my attorney, he was my hero!  The divorce process is inherently hideous and confusing, but knowing that I had someone both committed and completely capable in my corner, made it bearable. Craig balances emotional awareness, understanding, and sensitivity, with experience, knowledge and practicality, which not only makes him a powerful attorney, but also a trusted friend. By always going above and beyond, and taking the time to make sure I understood everything, he earned my trust and respect as well as my gratitude.  Hiring Craig is like having all of the benefits of a successful big city law firm, along with the care and integrity of a small town practice.  I recommend him without reservation.

Craig A. Darling, Esq., is Smart, a Good Negotiator, and is Persuasive in Court

Divorce is one of life’s most stressful events. If you need an attorney, it’s important that your legal council be experienced, smart, a good negotiator, and persuasive in court.  Most importantly, he needs to care about you and be there for you when you need him. Mr. Darling has all of these qualities and a sense of humor too.

Craig is an outstanding attorney.  His fees are reasonable and since he has a solo practice, your case won’t be passed along to a junior associate, which is often the case in a large firm.  He knows most the Orange County family law attorneys well and has good relationships with them, so a fair settlement with the opposing attorney is more likely. If a trial is necessary; however, the other side will wish they had settled when the trial’s over.

Divorce is a confusing and bumpy ride, but when you have someone like Mr. Darling serving as your guide it’s a lot smoother.

Craig A. Darling, Esq., is Very Sympathetic and Extremely Helpful

Craig was my second attorney in a very difficult divorce.  While all divorces are probably not going to be easy, Craig was very sympathetic and extremely helpful.  Craig went out of his way to support me in my (then) current situation and was truly a good person and a great attorney.  Craig knew his stuff, and gave me honest and accurate legal answers when I needed them most.

Having the right attorney by your side is a must, so I am very glad that I had him there.

Thank you Craig for everything; I sincerely appreciate all you did for me sir!

Mr Darling was patient and informative during a free phone consultation. He extended the offer for me to call back any time I have further questions. His office assistant was also personable and efficient and it seems the two of them work well together. I’ve learned the hard way that you definitely want an attorney with experience AND great office support! I have not retained Mr Darling at this time but I’d definitely consider doing so in the future.

A Fine Human Being, An Excellent Attorney

I have worked with four different family attorneys over the course of a four year messy custody battle and come across many more. Each and every lawyer I have encountered has been cocky, self absorbed, know-it-all, egotists that showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for my pain.
Craig is just the opposite: He’s not only brilliant and knows his law, but he’s kind, compassionate, responsive, humble, sweet, genuine and not hard to look at, either.
Craig actually cares about you more than he does your money. (Yes, I just said that about an attorney!) I would highly recommend him for his genuine kindness and his compassion. These two characteristics are almost impossible to find in today’s attorneys.
