  • Eager to help, knew the law, honest, and stands by his word.
    Michael Crawford is awesome. He is by far the best defense mechanism We've seen around this town n a very long time if evr.exactly what we needed.he was so eager to help, knew the law, honest, and stands by his word. He actually works for u, his client. Even if court-appointed he seems to give 110%. Just imagine what he would do if he was getting paid. He shows me money is not everything! He is really in it to HELP his clients. My opinion is Micheal Crawford is a one of a kind lawyer.

  • 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.

  • As a satisfied client, I highly recommend Michael J. Crawford.

    Mr. Crawford was able to represent my wishes and balance that with a sensible plan while taking the appropriate time to compassionately explain the process to me, answer all my questions and really listen to my concerns.

    Mr. Crawford was honest, knowledgeable, and aggressively fought for a successful outcome.

    As a satisfied client, I highly recommend Michael J. Crawford.

  • 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!

    - Millie

  • 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.

    - Lance

  • 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 truly cares about his clients!
    I needed answers. I have been in a battle for years and never got a final order and didn't know where my case stood. Mr. Crawford had those answers for me and was fast getting back with me... Mr. Crawford doesn't wait around the works right away and he truly cares about his clients!

  • Went way beyond his job's standards to satisfy me in every way.
    I was recently accused of heinous alleged acts by an ex which would have affected my immediate future, my profession and career, and possibly my freedom. I tried to handle my case in its infancy stages in which I only complicated what I tried to handle myself. I soon realized that I needed help and prayed to God for him to send me some help. I then parked in a Wal-Mart parking lot and began researching top lawyers in Corsicana, Texas on my phone. The number one top result that I found was Michael J. Crawford. I read a couple of his reviews and felt this is who God was leading me to. I then contacted Michael's Law Firm and spoke to his receptionist who is very nice and represents the overall professionalism of this establishment. In less than ten minutes, Michael Crawford personally called me and spoke to me about my situation. Michael told me word for word, "I do not take every case, but you need to hire me because I believe in fighting for people's rights when they have been done wrong!" I will never forget this nor everything that Michael Crawford and what his team has done for me! I then hired Michael Crawford the next day. Michael was very professional, dedicated, hard-working, relentless in the pursuit of obtaining victory in this case, and went way beyond his job's standards to satisfy me in every way while I endured this horrible period of time in my life! Michael only asked me for one thing during this time and that was for me to trust him. Michael's paralegal also worked endlessly and talked to me for countless hours about my case when she did not have to. Both Michael and his paralegal devoted countless hours on my case which resulted in our victory in this case. Michael and his team have endless knowledge about what they can do in every situation that arises in any type of case. Michael is always calm, cool, and collected and proved this to me during the last part of my case. Michael put together our overall plan and defense over the span of less than one week which resulted in us winning our case. I prayed for a Godsend and received so much more! I would strongly suggest to anyone whose back is against the wall, anyone that has little or no hope, and anyone who has been wronged to hire Michael Crawford. I would rather have Michael Crawford defending me than any other defense team because you get a public defender who actually cares about his client, never wants to lose any individual case, and does not just care about making money. I do not plan on ever needing to hire another lawyer, but if that time arises then I will call Michael Crawford without hesitating!

  • Go above and beyond to fight for the truth and justice.
    Mr. Crawford represented me and my daughter in a custody case over several months. He was very professional honest and understanding. His associates are very dedicated to their clients and go above and beyond to fight for the truth and justice. He is well known for not only being a wonderful attorney but for winning. If I ever need legal representation in the future his office will be my first stop.

    - Davie

  • I'd hire him again and I highly recommend him to all my friends and relatives.
    I hired Mr. Crawford because my husband was running over me. My husband is now my ex thanks to Crawford. I got the house and 60% of my EX 401K. Custody of our two children ages 9 and 7. And it was easy because Michael J Crawford has great staff from the young man at the front desk to his 3 paralegals. I'm truly happy. If someone is disappointed it's likely because they were dishonest with Mr. Crawford and it blew up on the client at a hearing when other party asked the client questions. Crawford told me early on that I MUST be honest with him. I'd hire him again and I highly recommend him to all my friends and relatives.

  • Crawford is the real deal. He fears no one.

    Michael J Crawford took my case and went to a jury trial with no fear of the State Prosecutor.

    I live in Addison, Texas but was in Corsicana on a hunting trip when I got pulled over downtown after leaving a friends house.

    The officer said I rolled a stop sign. DPS Trooper arrested me and I did a breath test at jail blowing a .089.

    Crawford gave me a 75% chance of winning the case in a jury trial so I took the odds and paid the trial fee.

    I admire Michael J Crawford and his staff. When you are in trouble and need to work your way out of it Crawford is your best bet to hire. He's a master in trial and told the TRUTH to the jury.

    The jury took only 15 minutes to come back not guilty after a 3-day trial.

    Crawford is the real deal. He fears no one

  • Crawford worked tirelessly on her case and she and her father and I are thrilled with the results Michael J Crawford got in her case.

    Michael J Crawford is a fighter and he loves to provide exceptional service to his clients.

    I hired Crawford after my child received a DWI driving home from college to visit. He was on the spot as he posted a bond as part of the retainer fee I paid for my daughter. Crawford has 24 hours a day answering service and jail release. He made everything seem smooth in an otherwise stressful time.

    Crawford appealed the ALR license decision immediately to keep my daughters license valid past the 40 days given in her temporary permit issued by the police officer. I didn't know the ALR Appeal had to be filed within 15 days of receipt of DWI but thankfully Crawford handled the license review by the administrative process along with the criminal DWI charge.

    Crawford kept us informed throughout the entire process. When my daughter needed an occupational license to drive to school and her part-time job he was able to get the license with relative ease.

    Crawford worked tirelessly on her case and she and her father and I are thrilled with the results Michael J Crawford got in her case.

    Crawford is the lawyer to choose in Navarro County. Once I hired him I realized just how lucky my family was to have hired the best Criminal Attorney in Navarro County.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    He is my lawyer for life.

  • 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!

    - Megan

  • 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.

    - Ashley

  • I felt very comfortable & could tell I was in great hands.
    Great Attorney, I felt very comfortable & could tell I was in great hands he's very understanding & easy to talk to about your case. thanks so much for everything you did for me. I would definitely want you as my attorney again.. thank you M.Crawford & all your staff.

    - Eva

  • I could not be more happy with the way things turned out.
    Mr. Crawford and his legal team have represented me the past several months in a lawsuit regarding custody, he is not a good attorney he's a GREAT one. His office is very respectful and professional I could not be more happy with the way things turned out. Not only did he represent me personally but also the best interest of my child. Amazing work for a more than reasonable cost. If I ever need an attorney in the future I will definitely want his law firm handling my case.

  • 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 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.

    - Cornelius

  • He stayed on top of my case and communicated on a weekly basis
    Highly recommended!! He stayed on top of my case and communicated on a weekly basis, great friendly staff! The day of court, what I thought was going to take a long time he had us in and out in 20min with a win for termination of parental rights.

    - Holli

  • I was always confident that I was being well taken care of.
    I am extremely pleased with the representation I received here. Everyone in the office is very kind and understanding and goes above and beyond in their duties. I was always confident that I was being well taken care of. Thank you SO much!

  • 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.
