  • Thank you again, Michael Crawford, you are a Godsend and God bless you!

    “I want to say thank you to the Biggest Heart in Texas, Michael Crawford. Several years ago a relative was falsely accused of a terrible thing. When asked questions they would just look at the floor too scared to answer. The lawyer we had prior to Michael told us that when my relative would be on the stand the prosecuting attorney would chew them up and spit them out and we should accept a plea. We did and my relative got 3 years probation. The lawyer also told me that the money I paid would cover the fee to have the records sealed when it was time, but he, unfortunately, passed away soon after the trial. Then the person that accused my relative came to me and revealed her statement was made in anger, not from the truth. Way too late! I called several lawyers and I couldn't possibly come up with their retainers. I called Mr. Crawford. He stated he usually takes a hefty fee to work on a case, but when I told him of the situation he got very quiet. His silence was followed by a simple question: Would you be okay if I did this case, Pro Bono? For some of you that seem to think all lawyers are out for money, I am here to state Michael Crawford is out for the people. Thank you again, Michael Crawford, you are a Godsend and God bless you!”

  • 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!”

  • Michael is not just my attorney, he is also my friend now because he is just that nice of a person.

    “Michael J. Crawford is a graduate of Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas. He chose to open his own law practice in his hometown of Kerens in lieu of practicing with a big firm in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. He works hard for clients. He is known as the "Blue Collar Lawyer" because he gives 110% effort for every client. I was very impressed with his professionalism, understanding, and expression of sincerity while he was handling my case. Michael is not just my attorney, he is also my friend now because he is just that nice of a person. Thanks, Michael for protecting my rights.”

  • Not only does he care about his client, but he will also care for your family and keep them aware.

    If you want a lawyer that will pour his extensive knowledge of the law and the people of Navarro County into your case, this is the lawyer for you.

    He stood up to the small town Justice System, that continually beat him down, but not once gave up fighting to ensure that the law was followed. Not only does he care about his client, but he will also care for your family and keep them aware.

    He takes the time to present his information from knowledge and memory, very intelligent.

    His staff is outstanding as well. They compassionate and caring and extremely knowledgeable as well. He will not give up.

    If I ever need another attorney in Navarro County, he is the man that I will call. If anyone ever asks me who do I recommend, he will be the one.
