My son has been represented by Mr. Crews through the Douglas County court system for the past year. We have sent multiple requests and have had almost zero contact from Mr. Crews. My son write his own motions to the court because Mr. Crews does not take the time to respond to his requests for consultations. I believe he is too busy for his case load to be worked in the BEST interest of his clients.

I had a positive first impression of Mr. Crews and was happy with our initial interactions. He seemed intelligent and very eager to take my case even though it was not a big money-maker for a lawyer, so I thought he genuinely wanted to help me. However, he nearly killed the case before it even started because he was not aware of the deadline for filing in my particular type of case, and he did not initially believe me when I frantically told him the deadline and pleaded for him to file on time as the deadline was just days away. One day before the deadline he confirmed that I was correct on the deadline and he filed the next day. I was also mislead to believe that he was taking subsequent action on my case (because he clearly assured me of this via e-mail) when in fact he did nothing, for months. This seriously hurt my time-sensitive case, which I had to start all over.
Unfortunately, I did not research Mr. Crews much prior to contacting him for help with my case. It is too bad because he could probably be a decent lawyer if he took more responsibility for all of his cases, not just those that are the most interesting or exciting for him. Perhaps he should stick to just criminal law.

From the very beginning of our lawyer-client relationship, I was promised by Mr. Crews that he would work diligently on my custody case and report to me regularly with new information and to meet with me in person to discuss the strategy of my case. Instead, he failed to communicate with me throughout the duration, many times taking several weeks to respond to me, both by phone and by email. When he did respond, he simply stated that he had no information and asking for information was pointless. When I asked why he had not made any specific progress, he dismissed my questions and quickly hung up. Unable to acquire the funds to hire another attorney, I was forced to wait two years before I was able to change counsel. In that time, he failed repeatedly to make progress on my case, refusing contact with me, arriving entirely unprepared to my hearings, failing to acquire necessary paperwork or information regarding my case, and eventually stating to me point blank that he did not "have time" to deal with my case as he had "more important" cases he was dealing with. As a result, I've received unfair treatment in court and have yet to obtain sufficient time with my children. When I terminated our attorney-client relationship, I was promised by his office that he would have my file paperwork ready that day, however, when I arrived, I discovered that he had specifically instructed his secretary to only provide me with a small handful of documents and refused to offer my entire to file, the contents of which I was entitled to as my new attorney would be needing them. His reasoning was that he did not want to use so much printer ink. As of now, I have yet to acquire my files from this attorney, nor has he inquired or shown any concern or interest as to why I have chosen to terminate our relationship, although I have offered to provide him with details should he wish to know my reasons. He has shown no interest or remorse whatsoever in his failings in my case or how it has affected myself, my children, or our family.
