He knows the people, he knows the law and will not let you down.
“Michael Crawford and his associates went above and beyond to help us with a very complex case resulting in a much more favorable divorce settlement than we ever thought would happen. He took a personal interest, showed compassion and understanding and his patience was that of Job. He is passionate about his work as well as fair, tough and blunt. He is aggressive and one time said, "I love to fight" -- exactly what I am looking for in a lawyer. I would recommend his office to anyone looking for a tough, smart lawyer. He knows the people, he knows the law and will not let you down.”
He got me a not guilty and now I'm working as a Registered Nurse.
“I graduated from the RN Nursing Program in May 2012. 3 days later I received a DWI with a .122 and .120 breath test in Navarro County. I hired Michael and he kept me calm and confident. I was unable to begin practicing nursing with my DWI. Michael led us to trial, picked a jury along with two of his paralegals taking notes and advising. We began the trial. The state had an expert in Ron Oliver and Michael completely discredited Oliver on cross-examination. He got me a not guilty and now I'm working as a Registered Nurse.”
