About Alan

Learn Alan’s areas of practice.

BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY: WHETHER YOU ARE A BUSINESS, BUSINESS-OWNER OR AN INDIVIDUAL SUFFERING IN THESE DIFFICULT FINANCIAL TIMES, AN EXPERIENCED BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY IS A VALUABLE ASSET.

 

Helping clients make a fresh start. As a partner in the firm, I represent clients facing one of the most difficult legal challenges which is  bankruptcy. In both areas, I use my knowledge of complex laws and creative problem-solving abilities to help individuals and businesses make a fresh start and gain a clearer picture of their futures.

Extensive experience in all facets of bankruptcy.   I regularly represent debtors, trustees and creditors in bankruptcy whether they are individuals or businesses. In assisting debtors that need to file bankruptcy, I explores the available options and guides individuals and businesses through the process that is in their best interests. When representing creditors or defendants in a bankruptcy proceeding, I seek to protect their rights and assets. 

Solutions tailored to each client. From experience I know that all bankruptcies are not the same and clients are looking for individualized guidance. I take time to listen, understand, and advise my clients on utilizing the law to their advantage in each case. Going through bankruptcy is difficult for businesses and individuals alike as they look for answers. I will use my best efforts to take the weight of uncertainty off  of your shoulders, enable you to preserve assets, shed debt, and see a way forward.

Wish I could give Alan 100 stars!
After an initial free consultation with Alan Crane I knew I need not consult with anyone else. I was kept in the loop the entire time, consistent lightning fast response time, concise, sharp and always one step ahead of the opposition. Alan cearly explained all options available prior to making decisions and flawlessly navigated all the twists and turns of my very unique case with a very positive outcome. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Alan Crane and would highly recommend him.

Alan Crane is extremely patient and methodical helping to head off problems at the pass before they become a big deal
Alan was so patient and help with the millions of questions I had. He guided me through the entire bankruptcy process and all of his recommendations were borne out to be true. His significant knowledge of not only the law, but the many other factors that can impact a case, was invaluable. He methodically worked to protect my interests at every turn and guided me through a very stressful process (for me) to best possible result. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Most of all, I always felt that he had my best interests at heart, not his own.

Excellent Attorney for Senior Citizens
Mr. Crane was referred to us for legal services for filing bankruptcy. Mr. Crane and his staff could not have been more understanding, thoughtful of our situation, and compassionate. As senior citizens going through a financial crisis so late in life, we were upset, nervous, and worried. Mr. Crane and his assistant, Patricia, were wonderful to work with and made sure we knew exactly what was happening in language we could understand. Highly recommend this trustworthy, honest, and compassionate team.

I consider myself fortunate to have had Alan Crane as my bankruptcy attorney
Alan treated me with kindness, courtesy and fairness throughout my entire bankruptcy experience. Alan is knowledgeable about his specialty both locally and out of state. I had unusual circumstances in my case and Alan proved to be a forceful negotiator on my behalf. I would recommend Alan to anyone in need of bankruptcy assistance. And not to be omitted from this recommendation is Alan's paralegal Tricia. She is a treasure.

Great Attorney
My Husband and I used Alan for our Bankruptcy. We were happy to have sat down at the initial consultation to be educated on the process and informed of consequences of our choice to file. Alan and the staff at his firm made the process very easy. They were in touch throughout the case and informed us of everything we needed to provide and when the next event would occur. It was a pleasure working with Alan and we do and have highly recommend him to anyone

Trustworthy - Highly Recommend
My husband and I hired Alan Crane when we were forced into foreclosure and subsequently had to file for bankruptcy. Mr. Crane was incredibly professional, caring, trustworthy, and nonjudgmental. Mr. Crane eased our fears about the process and the expectations and was by our side every step of the way. We had so much confidence in Mr. Crane's abilities that we referred him to my parents, my neighbor, and a co-worker who ultimately hired Mr. Crane with the same positive results. When you are in a scary situation, it is important to find a lawyer that you can turn your life over to and trust that he will do the right thing on your behalf. That lawyer is ALAN CRANE.

Mr. Crane is a confident knowledgeable attorney who takes the time to listen.
At a time where I was not in an emotional state to deal with a difficult financial situation, I needed to find an attorney to take the emotion out of the situation and deal with the problem at hand and Mr. Crane did exactly that for me. He listened to my concerns, understood my needs, was able to logically look at the situation, devise a plan of action and then carry out that action plan with a positive outcome. I appreciate him helping me when I couldn't help myself. I have since then consulted with Mr. Crane on other issues including post divorce situations where I needed legal advice to deal with problems that came up years after my divorce and he was able to look at my divorce decree and advise me on the way to deal with the issues at hand. I find him to be very personable and easy to talk to and at the same time confident and very knowledgeable about many aspects of the law and the legal system. One thing I liked very much about Mr. Crane is that when I came to him with a legal issue that he did not specialize in he had no problem referring me to another attorney that did have a better understanding of that part of the law. I will definitely use Mr. Crane again if I need legal services and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Compassionate and knowledgeable
Alan Crane handled our Ch. 7 Bankruptcy with true skill and deep compassion. During one of the most difficult times in our lives, Alan guided us and used his deep knowledge of the bankruptcy courts and Trustee concerns to assist us in obtaining a discharge and moving forward with our lives. He also made himself available afterwards for many follow up questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Alan to anyone without reservation.

Honest, intelligent and extremely honest.
I can't say enough about Mr. Alan Crane and his paralegal Trish. I had two very stressful situations I was faced with and Alan was able to not only help me but also reassure me everything was going to be alright. My point being that not only did Alan provide excellent service but treated me with respect. Alan actually cares about his clients and that is a hard quality to find today in this world. I can't recommend his services enough.

Wonderful attorney
Alan Crane is an exceptional lawyer. Alan exhibited compassion and dedication to my case, working very hard and corresponding with me when I needed him. His knowledge and ability to represent me was incomparable, coupled with his genuine concern for my case, he was able to get the results I sought. Aka- "he won!" I would recommend Alan Crane if you are seeking an expert to get you from point "A" to point "B" in the most professional and effective way. You will not find too many lawyers with each of these qualities.

Aggressive, results driven, and patient with clients
We hired Alan and his legal team for a personal matter. Given that I am also an attorney, I am certainly not the easiest of clients and I review everything with a critical eye. I can honestly attest that Alan was timely and detailed with his responses to our questions and inquiries, and always treated us with the upmost professionalism, congeniality, patience and ease. The results of our matter were excellent, and met with our expectations.

Can't recommend highly enough
Alan was amazing throughout the entire process. Along with his Paralegal Trish, they held our hand from beginning to end. They worked with us on our case, which was a bit complex, and always responded very promptly to our questions and concerns. More than 5 years of the plan and his commitment never waned in terms of responsiveness and making sure we felt like a priority.
