Communication was awesome, very fast on response to any emails sent or phone calls made. Mr. Crandall was able to get a settlement for my father, handled all negotiations and was upfront on all aspects of the case.

When we were thrown into a chaotic situation, we didn't know what to do. Steve was able to walk us through each step and made the whole process as painless as possible. He really cares about those he represents and it is evident in the way he fights for them. Steve was always available to answer any questions that we had. I cannot recommend him enough.

Steve was wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgable of the law and his communication with us was great. He cared about our family and our situation and wanted the best for us. I would highly recommend Steve and the entire group.

It was as a result of a very unfortunate outcome for my wife, from what should have been a fairly straightforward medical procedure, that our family was directed to Steve Crandall. I was certainly appreciative of his guidance, thoroughness, and especially, his patience in working with us, since this was an extremely overwhelming situation that my family and I had never encountered of its kind. I can honestly attest to Steve’s character and integrity, which became even more apparent as we progressed through the course of my wife’s case. Steve’s sound counsel provided a lot of the assurance we needed with regard to the legal matters, as well as emotionally, due to our medical/financial situation we were dealing with. I would not even hesitate to recommend Steve Crandall as a reliable resource, professionally and personally, should one ever require his expertise.

Steve is the most respectful, kind, considerate and knowledgeable attorney that I have ever had the
chance to know.
From the beginning of our relationship he was very considerate of my feelings ( of losing my wife )
and all that I had to go through and even now that we have made a settlement concerning our case.
We were rewarded the largest amount ever for our type of case in Ohio for that county.
Steve was always ahead of the game and constantly kept me informed either by himself or
by his assistants. ( They were also very personable and profession )
Although our case was settled in June he still will occasionally call or text me to see how I am doing.
He is not only a great attorney, Steve Crandall is a Special person.

I was hired by Mr. Crandall as an expert in one of his personal injury cases. I have never worked for Mr. Crandall, and since I'm slowing up and thinking about retiring, may never work for iim again. But, having worked for over 300+ Attorneys in 7 states, I rank Mr. Crandall as one of the top 3 that I have worked for. I have been at this for over 34 years. He was the most prepared Attorney I have ever worked for. His file preparation and documentation easily places him as the #1 attorney in that area. His office staff put together volumes of files in an unprecedented order. I have never had a case file so organized. He was also not afraid to spend money out of his pocket for his clients. In this case, I would estimate mid six figures in Experts, depositions, etc. Mr. Crandall's deposition skills were also unprecedented in my area of expertise. I have observed teams of Attorney's not as versed in each area of expertise that Mr. Crandall covered. I hope that nothing bad happens to any of my family members, but Mr. Crandall would be the Attorney I recommend. And to top it all off, he is a really nice and caring man as well.

We want to make sure that everyone knows just how awesome Steve is. We hired Steve for our malpractice law suit. From our first conversation with him, we immediately become aware of his integrity and commitment, extensive experience and thorough knowledge about the process, and moreover, the passion he exudes for his work. We gave him our full trust to handle our case. He did such a fantastic job that finally won the verdict for us after the trial that lasted almost 3 weeks. He was always courteous and attentive, making us feel that our case was the only one being handled by him, when in reality we were just one of his hundreds of clients. His genuine warmth and kindness make it near impossible not to become his friend. Thank you so much for helping us to gain our life back, Steve.

Steve was very friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. He was always available when I had questions and concerns. His staff were very concerned and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I hired Steve Crandall two years ago after the death of my husband. My husband and father to our four children went in for elective surgery and tragically died because the signs of a leak at the surgery site went unnoticed and he developed sepsis and peritonitis. Steve came to our home to talk to my children and I, right away he impressed me with his credentials and knowledge and I could tell that he was compassionate and caring. Our case was difficult because we did not have an autopsy to prove negligence but Steve took the case anyway. He was even told at one point by an expert that we had no case but he did not give up and spent night and day pouring over the records. As we prepared for a trial he kept us well informed about what was taking place and about what would take place. He was very good about getting back to me if I had any questions and had to leave a voicemail or when I emailed him. He listened to my concerns, calmed any fears or anxiety within me, and encouraged me throughout the process. He made my children and I feel that we were very important to him. I felt that not only was he fighting for us but that even though he never met my husband it was as though he was fighting for him also, that to him his life and the loss of it were worth the fight also. I sat in on the surgeon's deposition and Steve absolutely blew my mind with his skills and ability. Right then and there he proved that the doctor was dishonest and was guilty. His medical knowledge is amazing! Steve was always up front and honest with me. I pursued this lawsuit because I wanted the doctor proven guilty believing that would satisfy a need for revenge but Steve settled that matter in my mind when he told me that the goal of the suit was to provide financial security for me, helping me to let the need for revenge go. Steve Crandall is an attorney with a good heart and any one who hires him will see that his heart is in what he does, that he truly cares for those he serves. Our case did not go to trial, Steve got us a settlement beforehand. The settlement was suffice to help me pay off debt that I was struggling to pay and provide for my future as well as my teenage daughter's. Even after the settlement was approved by the judge he has given me valuable advice on how to best use the money. I CANNOT EVER SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT STEVE OR EVER THANK HIM ENOUGH!!! ANY ONE WHO NEEDS AN ATTORNEY FOR ANY OF THE AREAS THAT STEVE PRACTICES CANNOT GO WRONG IN HIRING HIM. HE IS SIMPLY THE BEST, HANDS DOWN AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!!!

We hired Stephen Crandall when we had a medical malpractice issue and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Throughout the entire process (which is quite lengthy) Stephen continuously kept us informed with any and all legal processes. Stephen was honest and passionate about our case and even with my constant (arm chair legal advice) questions and statements, he continued to listen and advise honestly and to the point. Once our court date had arrived, Stephen eased our nerves by being relaxed and professional, definitely carrying himself with the confidence of a well prepared and experienced trial lawyer along with the demeanor of a friend who is definitely there for you. Throughout the trial he showed his experience by never becoming rattled by the oppositions attorneys, or their tactics and questions, he was always one or two steps ahead of the defense and his passion for our particular case was apparent not only to us, but the jury as well. Stephen restored our faith in the legal system and attorneys in general. My wife and I both consider him a friend and the only attorney we would ever consider if we ever become entangled in the legal system again.
I wish I could have video taped the entire trial, I would have had the camera on Stephen only. There were times that the defense was putting on quite a show, and I looked over at Stephen and he sat there seemingly way too relaxed and I thought only half listening, then it was his turn to cross the witness, WOW, he didn't miss a thing, he stayed calm and asked all the right questions, made all the right statements and owned that court room...IMPRESSIVE!! He knew our case inside and out, he had done his work, and he was better prepared than anyone else in that room, and he continued that impressive work every day we were there, he was great!! I have to say the television attorneys even the best of them could not hold a candle to Stephen S. Crandall, I see the awards and accolades call him one of the top 10 in Ohio and one of the top 5 in Cleveland, in my opinion there can't be anyone better, he has to be the number one attorney in Ohio and Cleveland, Maybe even the country.
We won our case, or I should say Stephen Crandall won our case for us, he got to know us on a personal level, then he learned the case, then he prepared us, and became prepared for the trial, then he performed a fantastic job at trial, and now he continues to see how we are doing, he keeps in touch and makes sure we are okay.
Stephen not only is the best at what he does in the court room, Stephen truly does care, about you and your case.
I say it every time I speak to him, but I have to say it again here...THANK YOU
