    14 years, 1,000 cases

I became an attorney because I enjoy solving problems and helping people. It is fulfilling work to identify strengths and weaknesses in my clients’ cases, and to explain to them how I can use the strengths to their advantage to accomplish their goals. Though working in criminal defense is adversarial, I take a mild-mannered, laid back approach to working with the district attorneys, while still zealously advocating for my clients’ best interests.


My number one concern is earning my clients' trust.  Clients most appreciate my openness to communication and my ability to relate to them. I always return calls and emails, and my clients are never in the dark about the status of their cases. I do my best to make all aspects of your case clear, answering all questions and alleviating any concerns you may have.

Great job in court & excellent communication - highly recommend!
Mr. Crook did an excellent job representing me for a DWI charge. From the very beginning, he was easy to get in touch with and made use I understood my case thoroughly. He explained every step of the process and patiently answered all my questions. Always made himself available to talk. In the courtroom, he was attentive and effective. Ultimately my charges were dropped, in large part thanks to Andrew's diligence. Highly recommended!

"Best" is the only word for Andrew
I got speeding ticket in Raleigh. 63 on 35 mile zone is dangerous. But Andrew was there to help. I got PJC with 24 hours of community service. Andrew brought the best results back from court. No raise in Insurance, driving license is safe. You Rock Andrew!! Must call if you are in trouble.

Excellent Attorney
Andrew was beyond knowledgeable but never pushy. He explained everything in terms that I could easily understand. He continually gave updates throughout the process and was readily available if I needed to contact him. Will definitely recommend his legal services.

Traffic Ticket
My 20 year old son received a speeding ticket on his way home from NC State. I hired Andrew to represent him. I was very pleased with the results. Andrew was able to get his speed reduced which resulted in no insurance points.

I recommend
Mr.Crook was very professional and informative with what was going on with my incident. He also was personal which made him stand out from all the other attorneys I talked to before I choose him. Quite honestly that's why I choose him because he went that extra step in making sure I understood what was going on before, durning and after my case and for that I am thankful.

Andrew Patrick Crook was a great help in handling my DMV hearing to restore my driver's license.
Andrew has an excellent understanding of the NC DMV laws and how the system works. My case went very smoothly and Andrew was very prepared for the hearing as he anticipated ever step of the process. He also interacted with the witnesses, the government officials and myself with the utmost respect which made the experience much less intimidating. I would definitely recommend his services and would call him again if I have any further trouble.

Andrew Crook Represented us in Traffic Court
My daughter and I both received traffic violations within two weeks. Andrew Crook was efficient in handling both traffic violations and was able to go to court for us so we didn't have to miss school and work. We were able to get the charges reduced so that there were no points on our record with a small court fee. I have gone to court in lieu of an attorney in the past and know that from this experience, I would call Andrew before attempting to represent myself even with a small traffic ticket. It was worth the reasonable attorney fee and he kept us updated so we did not have to worry about changes in court dates etc.

Speeding ticket review
Andrew was a fantastic attorney who kept me informed throughout my case and even followed up when there was a clerical error and immediately had a response for me. I would recommend him to any one who is seeking legal counsel.
Response from Andrew Crook October 13, 2014
To be clear, the clerical error was committed by a local clerk's office, not by Andrew or his office.

Professional, Informative, new "go-to" guy!
Andrew listened to my story, then asked all the right questions to get a very clear picture of the incident (illegal turn at an intersection). He clearly explained all options, and went to multiple court dates. After each date he updated the status, and any developments that would indicate which approach would be the most successful and favorable one for me in this specific case. He offered his professional advice, but was also willing to listen to my suggestions and ideas (and then helped me analyze those adequately). He was never pushy, and was willing to listen, all while remaining the clear expert and acting in complete control of the legal side of the case. His advice was easy to follow, and the options were made easy to interpret. Andrew was easy to get in contact with, and reliable with his scheduled contacts and follow-ups. He was also patient and willing to listen when I needed to vent about the case itself. Overall great guy, and an excellent lawyer. We received a favorable outcome in the case, and I would use him again in the future. Since I hope that isn't necessary, I'll also add that I would recommend him without hesitation to a friend in the future as well. Give him a call... you'll be able to tell that he's genuine pretty much right away. Good luck!

Worth giving a call
Did a very good job, prob the best lawyer I've had the pleasure of doing business with. Hopefully I won't, but if I did need a lawyer again, I'd give him a call first.

Quick and responsive attorney to get the job done! Definitely would work with him again.
Mr. Crook was great with providing information and staying on top of our case. He was very friendly and quick to respond to any questions we had or by providing an update. I would definitely hire him again if needed or consult with him for other items such as a living will. It is very nice to have found a great lawyer who can help with a variety of things.

Review for Andrew Crook
After speaking with several other attorney's, all of whom did not seem very willing to help me, I chose Andrew Crook because of his professionalism and enthusiasm that he would be able to resolve my cases in my favor and in an expedient manner. Andrew went above and beyond to inform me of all my options and possible outcomes. He resolved all of my cases in my favor, to which I am so grateful. He is an excellent attorney.

Very helpful
I was in the Raleigh NC area seeking a senior care facility for my father and I recieved a speeding citation. I had to return home to Colorado before my court date. I attempted to seek assistance from the clerks office but was given the run around all four times. I contacted an attorney here in Denver but he could not practice out of state so he referred my to Mr. Crook and Mr. Crook took care of my matter right away. I have family in the Raleigh area and will not hesitate to refer them or anyone elssecin that area to Mr. Crook, because he showed understanding and concern for his fellow man. Thank you Mr. Crook.
