The Best of the Best when it comes to Employment Law
No matter the obstacles, no matter the time that must be invested, Dustin Crook is by far one of the bravest and most dedicated attorneys I have ever come across in my life. Not only did he bring to task a $2 billion corporation for discrimination and wrongful termination on my behalf, he secured a settlement for me that was higher than my lost wages. Always a gentlemen and courteous, Dustin consistently communicated progress throughout my ordeal and his professional demeanor and passionate tone speak volumes about the delicate care he undertakes for each legal matter he approaches. Consequently, I would highly recommend Dustin to anyone looking for that "heavy hitter" attorney to achieve the results and justice you deserve, as Dustin is truly in a class all by himself - the best of the best.

Great Attorney. Great Results.
Dustin was great to work with; he took a real interest in my case. He was always professional and courteous. He was easy to get a hold of, always explained things to me as they were going on, and was very knowledgeable. He advocated zealously on my behalf from the first day I met with him all the way through to till the divorce was finalized. With him on my side I have no doubt I received the best settlement possible. I would definitely recommend him.
