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!!

I would very strongly recommend The Law Office of Craig A. Darling, Inc., to Anyone and Everyone
Craig is my attorney and words can not tell how grateful I am for all his help. A few nights ago he was at his office past midnight making sure the custody agreement was signed by all parties. He went way above and beyond for me. Everything got taken care of thanks to him. I would very strongly recommend him to anyone.

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!

The Law Office of Craig A. Darling, Inc., was Patient and Informative
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.
I would highly recommend Craig. He is not only extremely knowledgeable but is easy to work and communicate with while going through an already difficult process. He has excellent advice and always has his client’s best interests at heart.
