Proven Family Law and Criminal Defense Counsel

Experienced Family and Criminal Lawyer in Northern California

If you need a family law attorney, chances are that you are going through one of the most difficult experiences in your life. Divorce, child custody, child support and property division can be emotionally and financially trying. You need a lawyer who listens to your concerns and aggressively defends your rights.

Similarly, criminal charges can deeply affect your family. When you or someone in your family is facing child abuse, underage drinking or drug offense charges, hiring an experienced local attorney can make a significant difference in the outcome of the case.

My name is Michael Darlington. For 26 years, I have been helping individuals with a range of family law disputes and related criminal law matters. From my office in Redding, California, I work directly with clients throughout Northern California.

Reaching Solutions for Difficult Problems

A family is a legal relationship as well as an emotional one. Divorce, child visitation and domestic violence accusations can be tense. In these situations, you need an attorney who understands your situation and fights to protect your interests. From the moment you retain my services until your case has reached a resolution, I will work to protect what's most important to you.

Defending Your Rights

I spent 15 years sitting as a Judge Pro Tem when we requested by the Family Law Courts of San Bernardino County. This experience enables me to more fully understand how judges view cases. Regardless of the stage of your case — whether you haven't even filed the initial paperwork, are going to trial or are filing an appeal — I can help you.

By Your Side Throughout Your Case

Many of my clients have never interacted with the legal system before. To ease some of anxiety you might feel, rest assured I will:

  • Listen to your concerns
  • Respond promptly to phone calls
  • Keep you informed of your options
  • Explain the law as it applies in your situation
  • Work directly with you

Let's start working together to resolve your case.
