In 1978 he was admitted to the Washington, DC Bar and subsequently in 1979 admitted to the Virginia State Bar. He served as the Past President of the Personal Injury Lawyers Association. He is a member of the American Association for Justice and the Mass Torts Trial Lawyers Association.

Thank You!
The Law Offices of Daniel L Crandall did excellent work for me regarding an automobile accident I was in. They were so professional, courteous and caring. My paralegal Debbie and my attorney John Pyle kept me informed throughout the whole process and were so prompt at getting the information to me that I needed. If you were injured don’t just assume the insurance companies will take proper care of you. I’m so grateful for Mr Crandall and his team. It was such a pleasure to work with them!

Attorney Huff
I had a brain injury due to an accident and hired Daniel Crandalls office, my Attorney was Stephen Huff. Mr Huff got me the best possible settlement and was so available and informative! I would absolutely recommend Crandall and Katt for the very best representation!

Much needed help was given.
I was very upset in trying to deal with the paperwork from my car accident. Being disabled for other reasons other than the car wreck the Crandall and Katt team responded, came to my home and listened to me and quickly took care of it for me. I highly recommend them and greatly appreciate what they done for me.

Personal Injury due to car accident
Crandall lawfirm did excellent work for my wife and I regarding a automobile accident we were involved in. Courteous and caring during the whole process.
Posted by Ashleigh | August 3, 2015
I was nervous...
Being under 21, I did not really understand everything that was happening to and with me after an auto accident I was injured in. Mr. Crandall's firm took the time to explain everything to me in terms I could understand and showed a lot more genuine care about me than the insurance company did. I appreciate Mr. Crandall helping me get a settlement that lessened the financial burden I had been placed under.

Great experience!
I was injured in an accident due to no fault of my own. I live 2 hours away and Mr. Crandall sent someone to speak with me and my daughter that was injured as well and get our information. Everyone in the firm from Mr. Crandall, to Rosie to Debbie really took great care of us and kept us informed along the way to the settlement. But, more than that, you could tell they really cared about about who we were as people and were genuinely concerned about us. This was our first time needing a service like this, and hopefully our last due to an accident. But, if you are injured, don't just assume the insurance companies will take care of you. Seek professional advice from Mr. Crandall.

Daniel Crandall is an excellent attorney!
I was seriously injured, in a severe car accident, so I hired Mr. Crandall to help me out with my case. Mr. Crandall and his team were able to locate an umbrella policy to help set me and my family up for the future. He and his team have always been very courteous, compassionate and prompt at getting me the information I needed. Thanks for all of your help Mr. Crandall and team!

Mr Crandall
I had an excellent experience at this law firm. I was in an automobile accident with soft tissue injuries and I thought I would not get much of anything. Much to my surprise Tammy Balmer was able to get more money than I could have hoped for! I would highly recommend this team!
