Client Reviews

"Sara McCabe, Aaron Goodwin, and the rest of the staff were fantastic. Absolute professionals, making it easy and smooth to get divorced which is always a sticky situation. I'm truly grateful I stumbled into their office!"


"A place for veterans and compassion. I contacted The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates after having a Peace Order filed against me. The accusations were outlandish, false, and slandered both my character and my name. I was in need to find strong legal representation that would see through the fabricated story. Mr. Aaron Goodwin was assigned as the primary legal counsel in my defense. Mr. Goodwin's priority was to understand who I am as a person before putting together any type of defense strategy. Over the next few days Mr. Goodwin and his team had a sound strategy backed by solid preparation. The result was a favorable decision on my behalf. I am confident without firm’s representation the outcome would have been different."


"Hands down one of the best law firms in Maryland. Very helpful and trustworthy. Would highly recommend!"
