  • Kyle E. Krull

    I know David Crandall personally and professionally. He is an excellent attorney with high integrity. In fact, since I am not an elder law attorney, I entrusted some of my own relatives to David's care regarding their elder law concerns. They were very pleased with his advice and services. According, I recommend David Crandall without reservation.
