As a long time real estate investor and broker, I have used many real estate attorneys and what I like about Mr. Crane is that he has real world sensibility. You can't get a deal done if your attorney is too conservative, but he has to let you know of the pitfalls so you can make accurate assessments of legal risk. I have recommended Steve to many of my clients and colleagues.
I have known Steve for over 25 years and have been represented by him on a number of occasions over the years in complex, sensitive & politically charged issues that required a solid refined review of the law, development of strategy and implementation of same to reach a successful conclusion. Steve has always been responsive, 'right on the money' in both his legal opinions and strategy recommendations.
I've appreciated knowing Steve and respect his opinion. His billings have always been more than fair.
I would recommend Steve to any commercial real estate developer seeking legal representation from a practical lawyer with his own development experience, an objective eye and mindful of cost effective results.
I hired to Steve to help me with a lease for a new location for my franchise, and then again for the sale of that franchise. The situation was a bit convoluted due to the relationship with my franchisor, and then with the buyer of the franchise. Steve capably and calmly handled all aspects of the situation, always providing me with advice that was spot on, and helping me to resolve the multi-faceted situation satisfactorily.
Steve is direct, very thorough, a good listener and patient. He helped me to remain calm when things were feeling dicey. I trust him 100% to represent my best interests with skill and professionalism. He has been great to work with.
We have had many dealings with Steve Crane and without a doubt you can rely on his expertise, honesty, and knowledge.
Steve represented me in a very contentious lawsuit against a local Homeowners Association which we won. Both he and his staff were great to work with, very professional, good at what they do and communicated well throughout the process. I would definitely recommend him and will go back to him myself if I run into future legal issues.
