LOOKING FOR AN AGGRESSIVE AND TALENT ATTORNEY WITH A GREAT REPUTATION, BETTER CALL CHRIS.

 

I always liked a good fight, and that is one thing I will guaranty.  I enjoy what I do, and I enjoy being in the courtroom.  However, simple gratitude from my clients is my greatest satisfaction.  Outside of the courtroom, I enjoy the outdoors, surfing, hunting, fishing (when I can), and spending time with my family.  If you have any issues, just give me a call.

EXCELLENT REPRESENTATION
Chris Crawford and his staff are a great team to work with. I was arrested for a DUI several days after I graduated college and knew this conviction would be very detrimental towards my future. One of the smartest decisions I made was hiring Chris to represent me for my case. Throughout the whole process, he was very forward, thorough and responsive in his advice. I was always well informed of my options and the status of my case, making life much easier in the midst of a chaotic time. Prior to my trial, Chris always gave me his honest assessment of our chances of success, which played a huge role in my decision to proceed to jury trial. During trial, Chris demonstrated how competent and skilled he is by having the state's prosecution overruled, beaten, and out matched through the entire trial. Ultimately ending in a very favorable outcome for my case -- not guilty of a DUI. I would highly recommend Mr. Crawford to anybody who is in need of a highly experienced, result-oriented attorney. This difficult situation was extremely stressful and scary, but knowing that I had a trusted attorney working on my behalf literally "saved my life."

Awesome Attorney
I was charged with DUI property damage, and Mr. Crawford took the case to the doors of the court house and won. He didnt just win, he kicked that district attorneys butt. He was always available and very knowledgeable about the whole process. I am so so happy I went with him.

Chris Crawford highly skilled goes the extra mile
Chris Crawford is a 5 star attorney who is there for his client 24/7. He navigated the JAG military system to dismiss an erroneous traffic misdemeanor and false arrest- the charge was going to cause me to lose a high federal job offer - look no further Hire Chris Crawford - his skill along with his relationships with prosecutors and the courts will give you the result you desire. Highest recommendation !! Thank you Chris !!

Extremely Professional and Highly Intelligent Attorney
Mr. Crawford goes above and beyond expectations, and his staff are experts in their fields. Chris and his team were able to get a felony charged dismissed without having to go the trial by going the extra mile and conducting the necessary due diligence to address the matter. He was able to convince the State that this was the correct decision based on the evidence, and the judge agreed as well. I would not recommend any other attorney for a criminal case in the Gulf Coast. Mr. Crawford legitimately cares about his clients and isn't just in it to collect fees. He has great energy, charisma, and confidence in the court room. You will not regret hiring Chris Crawford to represent you.

Excellent Attorney, Highly Recommended!
I hired Mr. Crawford back in June to assist my Son with a detainer he had placed on him. From first contact, I found Mr. Crawford to be very honest and forthcoming about the case and what he could do to help. He and his awesome paralegal, Elizabeth, kept me informed throughout the process and I’m very happy to say that my son got the most positive outcome in his case. All I can say is if you need an attorney- stop searching now and call Chris. He’s the best out there!

Best Attorney in Town
I was involved in a multi vehicle accident where I received a citation. The law enforcement officer believed I was partially at fault. I did not agree. Chris Crawford was recommended to me so I agreed to meet with him. It was the best decision that I could have made. He explained everything to me in layman's terms how everything would play out. He immediately put my mind at ease. Needless to say when we went to the traffic court hearing he had my ticket dismissed. I know without Chris Crawford's legal expertise the outcome would have been a lot different. In addition to this Chris also got me a settlement above and beyond anything I imagined. This experience made me realize that I really did need legal representation and believe me I couldn't have made a better choice than Chris Crawford.

Truly a life saver
My husband was arrested and charged with 2 misdemeanors and 2 felonies, including battery on a LEO. Mr. Crawford was absolutely amazing, dedicated, and always there when we needed him. He was able to negotiate my husband's sentence down to just 30 days in jail, which was served only on weekends. Mr. Crawford truly saved our lives- he was always there for us, and talked us through every step of the process. Him and Shelly answered our questions quickly, and did whatever they could to assist us. They were absolutely amazing, and I'd recommend Chris to anyone I know.

Amazing Representation, Highly Recommended!
My family has retained Chris for a few cases in the past couple of years and he has achieved the absolute best resolution possible to each case. I was charged with Possession of Marijuana L/T 20grams twice within one year and he was able to get adjudication withheld each time, allowing me to keep my drivers license. I've never had a worry going into the courtroom knowing Chris will be there representing me. Not only is he a criminal attorney he is also an exceptional Personal Injury lawyer. His staff is wonderful and makes sure that you are aware of every move their office makes pertaining to your case and will go out of their way to answer any questions you may have and make sure you are comfortable. I would highly recommend his office to anyone in need of an Attorney in Pensacola and the surrounding areas. Thank you so much to the Law Office of Chris Crawford!

Highly Recommend!!
Chris and Shelly were absolutely amazing to work with. They are both up front, honest, kind, and intelligent. I was getting ready to graduate from college in 2 months when I was arrested for my 2nd DUI in 5 years. Chris helped me make the right decisions for me regarding my trial that ultimately lead to a not guilty verdict. He is clearly a very smart man and puts his intelligence to work for your case. I would recommend him every time to any one in need of a criminal defense lawyer. Hopefully I will never need one again, however I know Chris will be the first person I call if I do.

great attorney
Chris Crawford is a great attorney. I was recently charged in a very serious drug trafficking case and Chris was able to get all charges dropped. At my first consultation with him, he had already read the police report and knew a little about my case. He put in a motion to have the case dismissed right away based on lack of evidence. At first the state refused to drop the charges so he set my case for a speedy trial and was very confident that we would win. Chris was extremely helpful in explaining details and answering any questions i had about my case. He was very professional in the courtroom and his staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Chris Crawford to others and I would use him again if I were ever to need an another attorney for any reason.

One in a Million
Chris Crawford did an amazing job of getting our case settled without ever going to trial. He is truly one in a million. His staff is spot on as well, you call up and get either the correct answer or a call back every time. Most lawyers are too busy to talk to you after you pay your money well this law firm is not that way....every one of them do a fabulous job!!! If you need an attorney, he was very reasonable and very good at his job. They will jump through hoops to hopefully get the outcome you desire.

I am glad I called Chris
I was involved in a bad relationship, and my spouse put fake charges on me. It started bad. I was charged with a felony over some lies and Mr. Crawford got them to drop it to misdemeanor. He then went to trial and beat that. Man I am glad I called him.

He saved my life
I was charged with a capital crime meaning I was facing mandatory life in prison. Mr. Crawford took that case to trial and beat it in only 10 minutes. He truly saved my life. If you are in trouble you need to do 2 things hire Chris Crawford and trust him. A. Shoemaker.
