  • 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!”

  • 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.

  • 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!”

  • If u need someone he would be the one to use!!!

    “He does a really great job!!! very smart!! will help u in any wy!! love what he's doing!!!this is the kinda lawyer we been needing here in this area!!! the other lawyer all play along with the other lawyer but Micheal stand along an get the job done!! he has a great staff that has it so simple for him!! if u need someone he would be the one to use!!!”

  • 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.”
