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.

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!
