Outstanding Attorney
My other half was facing some unwarranted heavy criminal charges. Crighton was contacted. He was kind, understanding and patient with all questions and concerns. He was always available to talk. We Always felt comfortable with asking about fears and possibilities of the outcome. Crighton adressed everyone of them, realistically. When the court date came , Crighton was a bull dog, and ended up getting the inappropriate charges dropped, which prevented my other half of having a lifetime criminal record. We were relieved. And will be ever grateful to Crighton. He is the attorney to obtain for your defense!

Absolute Divorce Case
Crighton Chase was an exceptional lawyer, and I am beyond grateful for all of his remarkable work with my divorce. It was a pretty heavy and complex case. However, he was very informative and confident throughout my entire divorce proceedings. His swift work ethic put a lot of my worries and concerns to ease. I was 100% satisfied with the end result. I would highly recommend him!

Crighton was excellent!
After working with a first, very disappointing lawyer, Crighton came to my rescue. In 6 months, he helped me finish up my divorce proceedings which had taken years to complete. He was thorough, professional and answered my many questions quickly and with compassion. I would highly recommend his services!

Excellent Choice
Crighton was always very responsive during stressful times in my custody dispute. On top of giving excellent legal advice, he would always advise me personally regarding the well-being of my child when he or I felt she needed it. He's a very compassionate attorney in cases that can be brutal and I would absolutely recommend him for any family dispute.

No one will work harder for you
I hired Mr.Chase to represent me in multiple cases and charges. He is hard working, knowledgable, and just VERY good at his job. I really appreciated him being straight forwth with me about my options and possible outcomes of my trials. He didn't sugar coat anything for me, but he did work extremely hard and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Knowledgeable and competent
Crighton is not only a great attorney, but a great person as well. Made an extremely difficult situation tolerable, and manageable. Also, he took a lot of the worry and anxiety out of the sutuation by knowing his knowledge and competence would handle it.

Outstanding work and service
Crighton took great care of me during a rough time for me. The most important thing is that he was extraordinarily responsive and made me feel like I was his most important client, even though that was likely far from the case.

Honest and Helpful
I would like to write a message about my recent experience with Crighton Chase. Crighton was honest with me and gave me my options up front and didn’t give me any false hope. I appreciated the honesty and planning that went into my case. The outcome was what was expected and I was able to plan accordingly. Thank you Crighton!

Outstanding Attorney
We hired Crighton based on a recommendation to handle a family/divorce matter that is extremely complicated. I can't say enough about his professionalism, his ethical approach to every single detail, and more importantly the kindness he has shown my family. While we look forward to the day that the divorce is final and we can celebrate, his guidance has been spot on and we truly appreciate his honesty even when it wasn't necessarily what we "wanted" to hear. I have the utmost respect for him and can't thank him enough for all that he has done to guide us through this entire situation. There are many attorneys from which to choose in the Annapolis area, but he is truly among the best!

Highly Recommend
I found out my ex-girlfriend had filed for a protective order against me over the weekend (I hadn’t done anything to warrant that) and her court date was the day I found out. My sister found Mr Crighton on a Facebook page (a lot of people were highly recommending him) so, I contacted him immediately. We went over everything that I knew over the phone and he met me at the courthouse that afternoon! Mr Crighton was amazing in the courtroom. My ex and I had a daughter and she was trying everything she could to get full custody of our daughter. With Mr Crighton by my side that didn’t happen, I ended up with shared custody and I am so glad I called him! He always answered my phone calls, emails and questions immediately! He made sure everything I wanted was granted and he made sure everything was completed correctly and fair! His charges were very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr Crighton and will use him again if ever needed!!

Attention to Detail, Knowledge, Preperation and Confidence
This is what you will find when you work with Mr. Chase. He goes above and beyond for his clients and knows the ropes. I have hired Mr. Chase twice, first for a shoddy mechanic and more recently for my divorce. The mechanic was defaulting on work and taking much longer than quoted (by 4 months). Mr. Chase reached out to the mechanic and informed him of our contract and his need to complete the work as detailed in our contract, or we would be pursuing legally. The mechanic quickly changed his tune and finished the work he was paid to do. For my divorce, Mr. Chase helped me understand my rights and guided me through the entire process. I know that divorces are never easy but he made it as pain free as possible. I know that without his extreme attention to detail, knowledge, preparation and confidence, the outcome would have been much different. Sir I thank you for your time and assistance through this difficult part of my life. Thank you again!

Never Gave Up
Mr. Chase is a true fighter for your rights. The state of Maryland wrongly charged me with a gun violation. The over aggressive states attorney continued to fight, even though I did not have a firearm. The end result was dismissal of charges. He never waived and continued to press forward to defend me. His knowledge of the system and the courts in general is evident. He stays in contact with you and keeps you abreast of what is happening. He takes time to answers your questions and gives you straight forward answers. Whether a civil litigation or a criminal defense, you need to take the time to speak with him before you make a decision on representation. Top Notch!

Mr
Mr. Chase was very thorough in my consultation with him. We exchanged several emails regarding his initial inquiries about potential solutions to a particular situation with the State court. He clearly explained his fee schedule and after agreeing to his representation he kept me updated on his further inquiries with the State prosecutor's office. He was able to explain and resolve the issue with the State's attorney declaring the matter "nolle prosequi" and withdrawing the case. The matter was resolved without a need for a court appearance. I was very pleased with his personal approach and his knowledge of the system as he guided me through the process. I give Mr. Chase my highest recommendation for legal help.

Amazing lawyer
Crighton Chase was referred to me by a good friend. After a consult for my child custody agreement case .I hired his services immediately. With his genuine down-to-earth demeanor he put me at ease instantly. With his in-depth knowledge of the law, ability to articulate and accessibility, I never felt alone throughout this whole process. Crighton's response time was amazing , far exceeding my expectations !!! He got the results I was looking for. I would want Crighton A. Chase in my corner every time.

48 year old traffic conviction
Crighton had to research the case because the county and state records back that far are located in different areas and it is extremely difficult to retrieve details and case numbers. Crighton researched my case including archived newspaper articles. His diligence in this matter allowed him to discover a mistake made by my original attorney. Crighton researched the law and developed a strategy which he was very successful with in court. His courtroom manner was excellent.

Honest and Personable Attorney
I needed an attorney to assist me with a complicated criminal and divorce matter involving domestic violence. Mr. Chase's background as a State's Attorney proved to be invaluable in his ability to assess the situation and advise accordingly. His sensibility and compassion was evident from our first meeting. A direct, honest and personable nature made working through the minutiae less of a grind. He was accommodating and accessible throughout the duration of the case. I'd recommend him to anyone in need of representation in Annapolis and the surrounding areas.

Awesome and Responsive- Get it Done Attorney!
After trying unsuccessfully to resolve a debt collection situation for months, I met Creighton Chase at the Annapolis courthouse. Creighton Chase is an awesome attorney with principles he isn’t just another attorney looking for his next victim. Those of you that may have had the pleasure of dealing with an attorney, where you were uncertain, if they were representing you, will certainly find Creighton Chase a pleasure to work with. I found Crighton Chase to be a great listener and easy to effectively communicate with. He listened to my issues/concerns, carefully reviewed my documents and came up with an agreeable solution. He took the time to contact the debt collection firm and weed through their lengthy holding process and confused staff. Throughout the entire process he remained professional, responsive and available for questions (a big plus). I would recommend him to my friends and family without hesitation!!
