My son was involved in a traffic stop that could have had severe consequences. He had not used good judgment about some items he had allowed to be present in his car, though none were directly involved with his driving performance or the reason for the traffic stop. I knew I needed good legal representation to help us through this situation, as we were facing charges that could have damaged his future. Once I talked with Eric Crawford, I felt really good about our chances for our defense. Mr. Crawford thoroughly proved that the entire stop was illegally performed and that an over zealous officer had completely over stepped his legal authority in the situation. Our case was completely dismissed and never even went to court. We're very thankful for Mr. Crawford's professional expertise as it was on full display in assisting us in our case. I would not hesitate one moment to call upon Crawford and Boyle if I needed legal assistance. I urge you to do the same!

Mr. Crawford is hands down the best defense lawyer. I put my faith in him to represent me in a case that would eventually make its way to the highest court in the state. Obtaining a reversal and eventual dismissal of my case.
When your future is hanging in the balance, Mr Crawford is someone you want on your side. He and his staff were always professional and ready to answer my questions. I felt Mr. Crawford would fight for me and do whatever was necessary to get the best possible outcome. (and he did!)

After my arrest for DUI I was scared of what would happen, and I thought my life as I knew it was over. Once I talked to Eric I started to feel better about the whole situation. Unlike the other lawyers I consulted Eric gave me a ton of information over the phone. The other lawyers just told me I needed to pay them money before they would tell me anything.
Eric had such a relaxed attitude, and at one point told me "look I think I can help you get a good result, but if you feel more comfortable with someone else you should go with them because this is probably one of the most important decisions of your life."
Well I went with Eric and it paid off big time. He got the evidence quickly and gave me copies of everything. He filed motions to suppress the evidence and when we had the hearing with the jduge, Eric owned the courtroom. Anyone in the courtroom could tell that Eric was so much more on top of the facts and law than the prosecutor or even the judge. At the end of his argument the judge ruled in our favor and said the evidence was illegal so the DUI was dismissed!!!!
Eric was right because hiring him was one of the most important decisions of my life. I'm glad I made the right decision.

Mr. Crawford is a great lawyer. He's educated, and takes his time to learn the details of your case. He's friendly and helpful and doesn't leave you hanging, replies back to emails very quickly. I was very impressed with him when we went to court, the way he defended me any judge would take his side. If you're on the fence and can't decide which lawyer to go with, I'd say no need to look further. Mr. Crawford is your man. Thx again..!

I could not have asked for a better result then what you achieved for my teenage son. We were staring at licence suspension, high fines, crazy insurance rates.
My case was resolved in less then 40 days and after some well deserved community service for my son, there will be no record of this high expense charge.
While this was a gigantic break for me financially, my son was still painfully aware of what he was facing.
A priceless lesson at a low cast.

Mr. Crawford researched the details of my case thoroughly, listened to my input, and gave accurate legal counsel focused specifically to my case. He was easy to talk with, insightful, and honest.
He and his office personnel responded promptly to both email or phone correspondences.
In all legal matters, Mr. Crawford represented me competently and professionally. He continued assisting me until all my issues were resolved!

I, unfortunately, had the pleasure of passing through Walton county late one night after working an event in Athens. I pulled up to a DUI check point and since I had no prior knowledge of the best way to respond in a checkpoint, I consented to a breathalyzer and blew a .086. The Walton County Officers high-fived and I went to jail. Fast forward to when I needed to hire a lawyer, I read some great reviews about Mr. Crawford and after striking out with other lawyers due to their costs being so astronomical, I decided to give him a call. He was extremely informative over the phone, making sure that he was extremely clear of my options and the odds of the gamble/politics that I was currently engulfed. He was very attentive to my situations and always responded with sincere kindness and empathy regarding my predicament. Due to my work and family schedule it was very hard to find a court date that worked. Eric was able to push my court date back approximately 5-6 months in order to find a date that worked for me. Once we were in court together, he worked out a deal with the prosecutor and the best they were willing to give me was a reduction to wreckless driving. At first, the a few terms were extremely difficult for me to achieve. They wanted me to spend a Saturday doing community service back at the jail and take a DUI course Friday thru Sunday. Almost all of my Friday through Sundays consist of working several jobs 12-15 hours of each day. If I can't work on a Saturday, it doesn't go over so well with my employer. Eric was able to speak to the judge and switch my DUI course to a Defensive Driving course which could be taken during the week M-F, was only one day in class instead of three and where the costs were much cheaper than the DUI course. He also was able to get the judge to swap my one day of community service for an additional 8 hours added to my 40 hour community service sentencing. The best news in this debacle is that with me having completed all requirements within the first 5 months of probation, Eric was able to get the judge to terminate my probation after 6 months. Mr. Crawford has been nothing but helpful in my case and has always been extremely quick to respond to my emails. He, like me, is extremely hard to get on the phone with our schedule, but I had full confidence that although we didn't speak much outside of email, he was always following through with what he promised. Unfortunately, I was not in the best of situations like some of his other clients where the police acted incorrectly and as a result the case was dropped, but Eric did the absolute best he could do within the case and the result was much better than it possibly could have been if I had represented myself out there. Thanks so much Mr. Crawford for taking my case.

Mr Eric Crawford is an upstanding lawyer. When you hire him, you can be sure that he will do all he can to get your case worked out in your favor. This is my second time hiring him and we won both of my cases without a glitch. When the county courts would not drop or reduce my charges, Mr Crawford took it to the state courts, when they would not drop the charges or reduce them, he took us to a jury trial. The day of the trial I walked out of court with all charges dismissed. Hire this lawyer!!
