  • 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!

  • An awesome and caring man.

    “He was the best lawyer for my son.  An awesome and caring man.  He treated him with respect. Not one time asked for anything. My son was in a bad situation and he was looking at a long time in prison. Michael J Crawford got him probation.  My son now is in rehab.  Thank you, Michael Jackson Crawford.”

  • I would definitely recommend him and his team as winning is very important to them.

    As a professional black male, I retained Atty Crawford to represent me in Ellis County and he did just that earring a not guilty verdict. I was initially alarmed by not talking to him much, but quickly learned he was prepared based on the law, facts of the case and the evidence. I would definitely recommend him and his team as winning is very important to them.

  • He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the law.

    “Mr. Crawford was awesome at handling my complex custody issues. Through the process, trumped-up charges were brought against me. Mr. Crawford was available over the weekend and at night at the peak of my issues when I needed him the most. His advice was on point and everything worked out like he advised it would. He is very knowledgable and passionate about the law. He doesn't just make deals. He fights for justice and wins.”

  • It was obvious at every moment of the trial that he was there to defend his client

    “Mr. Crawford was the attorney for my nephew - I sat in court the 5 days of court - and observed Mr. Crawford for the entire trial - it was obvious at every moment of the trial that he was there to defend his client -- and defend, he did. He was wonderful!”
