I grew up in northern California and obtained my law degree from Lincoln Law School of Sacramento. Before attending law school, I worked for the Sacramento County Department of Child Support Services and was a family law paralegal. It was my goal to practice family law when I began law school and it has been my pleasure and privledge to help families through this difficult time since I began practicing law in 2013. I live in Roseville with my husband and children.

Restraining Order, Divorce, Child Custody and Support, Move Away, Custody Evaluation
I came to Darci in panic as my ex-husband and father of my 2 kids was loosing all self control. He had already been effecting us for a decade due to his uncontrolled mental illness, however it had now turned to death threats, stalking and harassment in a consistent way. After hearing from other lawyers that I did not have enough to be awarded a DVRO, Darci assured me I had plenty of documentation and sure enough she got me a 5 year domestic violence restraining order which also gave me sole custody of the kids with only supervised visits between the kids and their dad. Later she helped me turn my legal separation into a divorce and after that she helped me get my Move Away request put through the court once I remarried and moved away to a different state. After my ex requested unsupervised time with the kids, something I knew was unsafe and both kids did not want, Darci helped me argue against a terrible court mediator who did not look at any of the 100+ pages of documentation showing the father was not safe and suggested I obtain a Custody Evaluator to more thoroughly review the situation and facts and make more informed and safer conclusions. I paid the money to that evaluator, which was not cheap, but so worth the money. Now their dad has substantive tasks he must accomplish before either me or the courts are OK with unsupervised time (26 weeks of anger mgmt, weekly therapy, psychiatry for meds, requiring more visits on his part to show effort, reunification therapy with the kids, etc). Beware of bad court appointed mediators, however Darci helped me immensely to sort through the tough decisions and emotions of the events and come to a conclusion that was safe and in the best interest for the children. This process was not cheap, but children never are and if you are going to pay for anything it should be for the well-being of your kids. I would definitely recommend Darci McKean for anyone dealing with the issues I mentioned above.

Legal Superhero
Darci was my attorney for a messy custody case that also involved DV and a protective order. She was amazing, and made THE difference in winning our case. She was able to grasp the situation quickly, understood the proper steps to counter his tactics, and handled them like a BOSS! Her declaration drafts and responses were always perfect and succinct, and she was extremely efficient with her time. She masterfully managed our case and I could not have asked for a better attorney. She is absolutely one of the very, very best!!

Wonderful Service, from two amazing ladies!
I recently obtained the legal services of Darci McKean, of McKean Family Law, for a Guardianship case. Darci and her Assistant Katrina, made this most difficult situation a breeze! Darci and Katrina are extremely professional, personable and have a way of making stressful legal matters, less stressful. During the entire process, Darci and Katrina kept in contact and made sure to thoroughly explain the steps and processes, in a way we could understand. I would highly recommend the legal services of McKean Family Law. Thank you Darci and Katrina for going above and beyond! Melissa

The Best
Darci is the best!! Couldn't of asked for a better attorney. Darci works with you and goes over every detail of what will happen before you go to court. She is there every step of the way from the time she accepts your case to the time you enter court. The biggest thing is that she kept me from being so nervous. She got me through one of the most difficult situations in my life. If I need an attorney again, I will call upon her. Thank you so much Darci

Incompetent lawyer
I usually dont write bad reviews but I know how painfull could be to have an incometent lawyer.In a few words Darci Mckean is  incompetent with no care and empathy. She was my lawyer for more than a year in a case with no custody ,no fight over assets involved and could not finalized my divorce. Due to errors in filling my case was denied many many times.At he end with once consultation with another lawyer my divorce was finalized in a month without a lawyer.

Response from Darci McKean December 10, 2020
Hi Sima, I am saddened that you think I did not care. I definitely do care and I was nearly as frustrated as you with the delays in your case. At the time, I had not worked on many Bay Area cases and was very unfamiliar with the processes used by the court in your county. Unfortunately, when your case was assigned to me, my firm took cases in your county. It was not my firm or my rules that I worked under. Now that I have my own firm, your case is the reason that I will not take cases outside of Sacramento or Placer counties. Every county is different and clients should have an attorney that knows how to get them through their case quickly and without delay in whichever county their case is in. I now have total control over what cases I accept. As an attorney and business owner, I refuse to make mistakes taking cases in unfamiliar counties just to make a quick dollar. I'm very glad to hear that you were able to get your case finalized without any further costs to you and I wish you the very best future. Thank you for being a wonderful client and I hope that you know that the lessons I learned in your case will not be forgotten. Darci
