  • He is my lawyer for life.

    Crawford got on the case quick from the first time I spoke with him. My family contacted him prior to me turning myself into the police because there was a warrant out on me. Crawford went with me to the jail, met with the justice of the peace, and helped me by posting bond for me as his client. This took the drama away from the process. I was in and out of jail in less than 1 hour and never had to sit in a cell. Crawford always kept my feelings, and my families feelings, in mind as he made decisions. He always asked me my opinion. I felt like I had a say in my defense. In the end, Crawford helped me to get a new lease on life. I owe my opportunity to be successful to Crawford and his staff.

  • Very happy with our results and he'll be our first call should the need arise again.
    “Would recommend Mr. Crawford and his team to anyone without a doubt. He and his team stood by my husband and worked on his case for 3 years without checking up once. Very happy with our results and he'll be our first call should the need arise again.”
  • I will never be able to thank him enough & will ALWAYS recommend him to anyone in need!
    “I actually came to Mr. Crawford when my initial attorney failed to do anything for my case. Not only did he get the results that are best for my son & I, but he also worked with a sense of urgency, making sure I knew my case was important to him. I was always informed, educated & respected. Going thru a divorce is TOUGH but Mr. Crawford made it possible. I will never be able to thank him enough & will ALWAYS recommend him to anyone in need!”
