    • I recommend John Crawford.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Never needed a defense attorney before, but found Mr. Crawford through a referral. He was very patient with me and clearly and simply explained all my options. He gave me the information I needed so I could make the best possible decisions regarding my case. He did an excellent job of preparing me for what to expect. I had lots of questions, and he always got back to me quickly. His number one concern was getting the best possible legal outcome for me. And he made that happen. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney who will have his back.

    • I recommend John Crawford.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had gotten a speeding ticket and could not afford to receive any more points on my record and could not afford for my insurance to go up either so I decided to hire an attorney to represent me on my traffic ticket. After much research and asking around, I met with and hired Mr. Andrew Crawford. He was very kind, knowledgeable and professional . He told me he would keep me apprised with any news on my case and he absolutely did! For a very reasonable price, Mr. Crawford was able to get me a withhold of adjudication and no point assessed on my license. I was very pleased with this outcome, it was better than I hoped, and I would absolutely hire Mr. Crawford again and recommend him to anyone looking for a great attorney who delivers a great outcome. Thank you!

    • I do not recommend John Crawford.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I obtained Mr. Crawford for a felony battery case, which I was charged by a neighbor. Mr. Crawford failed to obtain the emergency room medical records of the victim, had he obtained them they would have shown the only injuries that the neighbor had were arthritis & surgical clips from a previous operation, the only injuries from an alleged beating he said he received by me I also had 4 witness and evidence that I wasn’t even there! Mr. Crawford didn’t covey the facts of the case to the jury in a way they could understand, he also represented me in a restraining order with the same plaintiff, but different case, I was forced to live in a motel for months and eventually forced to move and lost my home this case was also lost!
    The alleged victim sued the condo association and won $89,000 because of my CONVICTION I LOST MY CONDO over $100,000 & 18 mo. in PRISON I’m 68 years old.

  4. Better than expected.

    In October of 2011, I was arrested for DUI. In actuality I was charged with 2 DUI's being as there were 2 auto accidents involved. My divorce attorney, Sean Costis, quicly referred me to Mr. Crawford (Andrew). Andrew made time to see me the same day & quickly informed me of everything that was going to begin happening. He gave me advice on what steps I could proactively begin taking. All through the process he kept me well informed. As much as possible, he assisted or instructed me on how to keep my driving privileges in tact. When it came to trial time, his communication & dealing with the state's attorney & judge drastically reduced my sentence & fines; 2 DUI's reduced to one & impounding of my vehicle was waived. By following his advice, I was off of probation within 2 months. Fines that could have totaled over $4000 were reduced to $1000. He also assisted in helping me find out what happened to $500 of my bail monies that the court seemed to have temporarily misplaced. He informed when my hearing for restitution was done & deleted. Without the assistance of Attorney Crawford things would have definitely been far worse, & I can only say nothing but good things about the quality of legal service he provided on my behalf ... again, Thank you Andrew.

    Mr. Crawford was an excellent attorney. He represented me when I was charged with a second DUI in St. Petersburg, FL. He methodically reviewed each piece of evidence the prosecution had, and found ways to effectively discount every one of them. In the end the DA's office denied my request for a lesser charge. Mr. Crawford was honest about the risks involved in going to trial. He did a good job of presenting the pros and cons of my choices, and then allowing me to make the decision that I was comfortable with. I decided to go to jury trial. The trial lasted one day and Mr Crawford shined. He did a good job connecting with the jurors, he was much less abrasive than either of the assistant DA's, he did an excellent job of making the inconsistencies in the stories of the testifying police officers obvious to the jury, and after 45 minutes of deliberation the jury brought back a verdict of not guilty. I could not be more pleased with Mr. Crawford and would recommend him to anyone.
