Steven Michael Crell

About me

My name is Steve Crell, and I have devoted the last 26 years of my accident and injury law practice to restoring the lives and well being of people who have been hurt or had a loved one killed by the negligence of others.  My focus is always on my client and his or her family.  The primary question I ask myself in each case is, "how can I help them get back to work and recover the resources needed to pay hospital and doctor bills and lost income?"  My client doesn’t pay anything up front and I’m only paid if I obtain a successful verdict or settlement for my client.

I make sure to act quickly and stay one step ahead of insurance adjusters.  I retain experts, gather evidence, take statements from witnesses and friends and family of my client, and make sure that insurance adjusters know that if they won't agree to a full and fair settlement for my client, I have everything  I need to go to trial and present the best possible case for fair compensation.

You can see my substantial experience and accomplishments and even a list of some of the impressive verdicts and settlements I have obtained for my clients on my website at But what you really want to know is what I can do for you, and the answer is simple:  I will give you personal, caring guidance and will go the distance for you and won't give up until I have helped you achieve a fair and just recovery for your injuries and losses.  You have my word on it.  Steve Crell

  • David Gregory Crell

    One of the best lawyers I know. When it comes to personal injury, Steve is on top of it. I know plenty of his clients actually keep in touch after their case and use him on other matters as well. Good guy and good lawyer.
