    One thing I can say about John Crane is that in all of the referrals I have sent him, I have not had one client ever call and say anything negative. In fact, I usually receive thank you telephone calls from clients stating how attentive John was to their needs and far exceeded their expectations. I most enthusiastically recommend John Crane to anyone searching for a bankruptcy attorney in the Westchester/Bronx areas.

    I have worked with John Crane on several matters, including bankruptcy and foreclosure defense and I most highly endorse him. He is knowledgeable, caring, pays attention to deadlines and has a discerning legal mind. More importantly, John dedicates himself to the clients he represents and takes the time to consider what course of action will best serve a particular client.
