A dedicated professional
I did not initially go with the Law Offices of James Crawford, but wish I had. I came to them following months of frustration at the ineptitude of the law firm I initially hired. I had not done my homework prior to hiring them. However, after lots of research I chose the Law Offices of James Crawford to represent me moving forward. From the outset, Florian exhibited a sincere interest in my case, and established clear goals and guidance. Through his dedication, professionalism and tenacity, we were able to settle my divorce with my wife on our terms. Previously, my wife's law firm had dictated actions to us and I never felt like my best interests were being represented. That was not the case once I had Florian. He clearly explained our position, took the time to gather the facts about my case, and put us in the driver's seat. I am grateful to him and his team for bringing closure (just closure) to the most difficult time in my life. I highly recommend Florian to those who want to be fairly and professionally represented in a divorce.

Excellent service for my divorce
Florian provided excellent service to process my divorce case. I was impressed with his efficiency and methodical communication as each moment of my separation and final documentation occurred. I was able to conduct all my actions and decisions with him and his team at his office. Even from hundreds of miles away, and throughout the pandemic situation, I always felt very directly involved and informed to make the best decisions necessary.

Skillful Compassionate Attorney
Attorney Florian Tabaku patently posses dexterity of skills, knowledge and compassion. My case presented several challenges. He assured me I was in trustEd hands. He worked tirelessly from early in the morning until late at night. (Close to 11PM at times). Above all, he called or texted me to check on my well-being having spent a full day in court proceedings. Not merely as my attorney, but as a fellow citizen having keen understanding of the toll on me, my family and my work the case had become overwhelming to me. Suffice to say, “No one cares how much you know...till they know how much you care. Thank You Sir! You’re the epitome of your profession. Forever grateful! Marvin A. Ret. Vet / Humanitarian

AWESOME
This was my first real experience having to hire a lawyer. Mr. Tabaku took everything off my shoulders and fought for me. My Ex husband has been a bully and was getting away with everything. He was supposed to pay by 1st of the month and would be months behind. I finally had enough and hired Mr. Tabaku. He had my ex husband shaking in his boots. NO longer will he push me around. In the future I will hire Mr. Tabaku for any of my legal needs. HE ROCKS!! I can sleep at night now. Really 5 stars are not enough he deserves 100 stars.

Protective Order
My experience with The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates was an extremely positive one. Mr. Florian Tabaku worked with me for my protective order case, one which was extremely distressful for me and which I really needed to achieve a positive outcome, for the sake of my safety. Despite my situation being very complicated, Mr. Tabaku navigated it and guided me as to the tasks I needed to do, with ease. He worked very hard and communicated with me extensively along every step. He was also extremely supportive, and a very calming presence and support, during such a chaotic time, and he achieved the desired outcome on my behalf. I am extremely appreciative to have chosen this Law Firm, and Mr. Tabaku as my attorney, to represent me. I will 100% seek out his legal services again, if I am to ever need them, and I highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an attorney they can trust.

Superior Service
I needed help and guidance with my Divorce. Mr. Tabaku helped me through each step, clearly explaining everything in terms I was able to understand. He didn’t make me feel like I was bothering him (as I did have a lot of questions) and had patience throughout the entire process. I would definitely use his services if needed in the future. Very highly recommended!

Brilliant Divorce, Child Support, and Child Custody Attorney
I had physical custody of my three young children, when my ex-wife filed for a custody modification. She was represented by two well-seasoned divorce and child custody trial lawyers with experience in national high-profile cases. After almost two years of paying my attorney, I could not afford to pay her to represent me at my child custody, child support and divorce trials. I was referred to Mr. Tabaku by my ex-lawyer after my ex-wife and her attorneys bankrupted me. Mr. Tabaku understood my trouble and agreed to represent me. The first time I met Mr. Tabaku, I immediately noticed his calm demeanor. He listened and was genuinely sympathetic. There was a quiet confidence about him that brought me peace. I was so use to complete chaos. My ex-attorney and my ex-wife’s attorneys yelling and arguing every conversation. All the lies and ill feelings. Life was stressful! Mr. Tabaku changed all of that immediately. Mr. Tabaku took over my case shortly before my child support and child custody trial. I was a nervous wreck! Almost two years of paperwork behind my children and I. How on God’s green earth was he going to know everything before trial? The day of the trial, Mr. Tabaku knew the LAW and we won our trial. Mr. Tabaku later got me what I wanted in the divorce too. My wife appealed the decision but Mr. Tabaku was flawless in handling the appeal as well. Never giving into the opposition’s shenanigans or intimidation tactics. I thank God, I crossed paths with Mr. Tabaku. He is truly a genuine person and is committed to fight for fathers’ rights! Although I would not expect anything less for mothers’ rights. He is passionate about his work and clients. My children and I Thank him!

Calm, patient, understanding and determined.
Florian Tabaku and his law partner Ulysses Triantis produced an amazingly fair and just ruling! A while before I met Florian and Ulysses, another Maryland lawyer was happy to take a big retainer, bill me for every second and get me no results. Worse; what the other lawyer did for me was: make me feel more desperate and anxious than I already was, and make me lose faith in the justice system. This other lawyer left me to think that my future was very bleak, and that whoever has access to the most money, prevails in court. I was at my wit's end and almost concluded that I did not stand a chance against other expensive lawyers and a manipulative opponent at the time. An opponent, who through dissipation had taken possession of all the marital funds and while living like a king, deserted me and stuck me with a debt. Thank God for Ulysses and Flo. Indeed, as someone else on Yelp stated also: I felt so relieved as though a big burden was lifted when Florian and his law firm partner called me up after I contacted the Bar Association to explain the complexity of my case and ask the Bar Association for help and experts. Pretty much after the first phone call with Ulysses and Florian, I knew this was a compassionate and hard-working team of lawyers. Florian is great in being so laid-back and calm when you as a client are anxious and emotional because there is so much at stake. And with emotions and finances having become all intertwined in divorce. Finding your way through the slow and procedurally cumbersome justice system is no easy feat on the nerves. I had to practice patience and battle a sense of hopelessness many times to deal with it. But these two stood by me, paved the way, and more importantly: booked an amazing result. Their final performance meant 3 straight (8 hours a day) in court for the divorce trial. I don't know how I would have gotten through final those days without them. What a fine lawyer. What a good team! Thank you both.

A great and honest professional
I am thankful to have been led to Mr.Tabaku, I was stuck against a wall when I came to him. I wanted a divorce and thought it would go smoothly since I had custody already, but the other side hired a lawyer and he was doing things and filing papers I knew nothing about or how to respond. Mr.Tabaku took my case even though the hearing was not a long time away. He was a very patient man I can tell you that because I called him many times due to anxiety and fears I had but he always showed confidence in our case and that I would get my divorce and that he would fight for making sure I got what I wanted which was keeping my daughter safe and that was my number 1 priority. He proved himself an honest man, a hard worker and a true professional. In the end as he predicted things would go they did. We won the case I am finally free and I can continue protecting my daughter having the authority in my hands thank God. You have a good lawyer on your side if you choose Mr.Tabaku!
