Excellent Professional Phenomenal office
Crawford and Boyle was recommended to my wife by her retired attorney/employer. From the first initial phone call, to our last day in court I was extremely satisfied! I have never been in my situation before and had no idea what to do. They immediately told me step by step what would happen and assured me they would be with me along the way. My situation could have been much worse without their expertise! Mr. Boyle represented very well and was able to lessened my charge which was so so so much appreciated! He really saved my life. My legal fees were worth every penny.

DUI
I recently hired David Boyle from Crawford and Boyle LLC for legal representation regarding a DUI charge that was eventually reduced to reckless driving. I can't express how grateful I am for their expertise, dedication, and professionalism throughout the entire process. From our initial consultation to the resolution of my case, David and their team demonstrated a deep understanding of the law and a commitment to achieving the best possible outcome. They kept me informed, answered all my questions, and provided valuable guidance every step of the way. Thanks to their efforts, I received a favorable outcome that has significantly impacted my life for the better. I highly recommend David to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their knowledge and skill in handling DUI cases are second to none, and I am truly thankful for their outstanding service.

David Boyle saved my life.
This was my first time getting arrested for anything and i was going to do life in prison if I was found guilty. One of my family members recommended me about David Boyle and i immediately hired him and I don’t regret it at all, he’s one of the greatest to defend you in court and tries to solve the issue one way or another. I ended up just doing 10 years of probation but since it’s my first time getting arrested and charged for something, I only have to do 3 years of probation. Without Mr. Boyle’s help and the staff, I probably wouldn’t be writing this review or writing a review for anyone. He really saved my life and I’m truly grateful for him. He’s one of the best to ever step in the court room to defend you. So if you are hesitant about picking Crawford and Boyle, don’t be because they are professionals that knows what to do. Thank you Mr. Boyle.

Did a fantastic job
David Boyle from Crawford and Boyle was my choice after researching lawyers in the city. I would highly reccomend David Boyle. David gave me immediate updates when reports were filed and was always ready to talk when we got in touch. Since hiring him he has been extremely attentive, getting the best results I could have expected in court, and made it a less painful experience. David always replies to my emails and phone calls right away and gave me a lot of confidence someone smart and qualified was going into the court room with me.

Knowledge and Dedicated
I had the fortune to choose David Boyle as my lawyer in a traffic case. He explained the process to me and really made the ordeal a lot less scary. I could tell by his interactions with colleagues that he is highly respected. I got a fair result for my situation and am very satisfied. The price was snacking for the service provided. Would use again if needed and would definitely recommend to friend and family.

Mr Boyle was diligent and through in the handling of my case. He kept me updated and informed along the way and was never too busy to take my calls. Mr Boyle did not give false reassurance but was factual with information of case. Mr Boyle also made payments attainable to meet my financial status.

Absolute best attorney!
Mr. Boyle is hands down the best attorney I’ve ever come in contact with! In not just one, but two cases that I was sure to lose; he fought for me and won both! He is very attentive, very quick to respond, and has unbelievable knowledge of the law. He was up front with me and very honest with what he thought the outcomes for my cases would be and he was right! He never made me feel like just another case and he helped me get through this with upmost confidence. If you want the best outcome possible for your case, along with extremely fair pricing, your first call needs to be David Boyle!

I hired David for a probation case involving my son. The probation office was asking for two years prison time. After thoroughly reviewing my son’s history, David was able to negotiate day reporting and no prison time.

BEST LAWYER EVER
David Boyle is Highly Skilled, i was going through a serious criminal case soo serious that i even settled with accepting 3 years of my life in prison. He told me he would try to go for 6 months in a pdc in prison, i came to court for a pre trial conference expecting 6months or maybe even worst, Mr boyle talked to me outside the court room and told me he got me house arrest versus prison for such a serious incident it was litterally an extraordinary result for my situation, if you need a lawyer for anything, this is the man because of him me and my entire family are soo happy and thankful for his expertise i dont plan on ever catching any charges but i know if God forbid David Boyle is my first phone call in any situation, hes worth the money 100% and ill never forget the name David Boyle the one who made it possible for me to able to witness my first child’s birth , #extremelyhappyclient

Great lawyer
We hired David for my boyfriend case he had felonies and probation violation. David went above and beyond when it came to his case. He ended up getting his charges lowered and the other ones dropped. He ended up beating his probation and my boyfriend came home early. If you looking for an attorney to get the job done he is your guy and he cares about you. I would use him again but I hope it doesn’t comes to that. Thank you again David.

Mr. Boyle was very thorough with all that I needed to understand about my case. He attended all court appearances on my behalf. My plea was arranged and completed before I went to court. I was completely I afraid and extremely confident in his actions. Great choice for everyone.

Mr. Boyle recently resolved a pending case I’ve have holding over me for the last 3 years. He worked diligently with the District attorney to lower the charge. I was more than pleased with his help. He went overboard and asked for a first offenders which we received. So in this case I was able to go from a felony charge to a misdemeanor. Thanks Mr. Boyle you have been a life saver.

I had a chaotic situation and faced a heavy penalty. David communicated well and kept me up to speed. He was able to reach a negotiated plea deal that allowed me to continue on with my life. Would recommend David and Crawford & Boyle to anyone.
