  • Curtis Lamar Harrington

    Attorney Craytor serves avvo questioners with dedication, and in particular with an advantageous mix of considerations one would expect from a fellow Texas attorney who is also admitted in two other nearby states and who covers the wide geography about Texarkana. In a rural / small town setting, having a local attorney familiar with the with the local courts is the key to efficient resolution.
