Ms. Crawford was instrumental in helping me obtain formal adoption papers for my foreign-born son. She was timely, considerate, knowledgeable, and extremely professional.
Gaining guardianship of my nephew was my top priority and Ms. Crawford helped me with the whole process. I was always informed and confident Ms. Crawford was working hard for me. I felt comfortable talking with her and the whole process ran smoothly. Her staff was very helpful as well.
Even with my doubts of the system, and dealing with threats and character flaws. Beth kept a level head. Beth got the case through as quikly as she could, and tried to answer my questions as quickly as she could. What I liked was beths knowledge and she seemed alittle more aggressive or less complacent, then other attorneys I talked to in the area.
When I needed to find a lawyer for my divorce, I was fortunate to find Ms. Beth Crawford. She assisted me in understanding my rights and what was important for the settlement in regards to the children. Beth was an effective advocate for me when my husband became difficult to deal with. Beth made sure that I was protected with any offer from the opposite side. She was always efficient in ensuring the case continued to advance towards resolution. Because of her, I received a fair and equitable settlement. I highly recommend Beth Crawford!
In the beginning promised to be an advocate and have my best interest at heart. Dropped the ball on several important issues. "Forgot" to file paperwork with the court. Did not file a Motion to Compel even after months of the other side dragging their feet. Did not take the opportunity to inform the judge at the status check that my husband had not followed through with the temporary orders. Just one thing after another. Watch billings closely, I found several errors and even charges for work on Child custody and child support which wasn't even part of our case. Our children are grown and on their own! After all this she informs me that the $5000 retainer I paid her is gone and presents me with an additional bill for $2250 which I did not consent to. The most difficult part of all. This is one of the most difficult times of my life and yet I have another person taking advantage of me. I really needed to trust her. She really let me down.
