"Dear Timothy and Sara,Thank you both for taking my case on short notice! Thank you Tim, for telling me while I was frantic, "You need help." Lol... Given the nature of my case, I couldn't have found anyone better suited for understanding me and being by my side. My parents and I are very thankful we were able to not only find someone to appear in court on such short notice. We are also happy that we found a genuinely beautiful person!"

Good people to deal with, and I would not hesitate to recommend The Law Offices of James E. Crawford to anyone."
