I have been selected for many years by my own peers as both a SuperLawyer and as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in all of Dallas/Fort Worth in all practices. These are the lawyers I face in court all the time. Lawyers love to say they are "litigators," despite rarely trying cases, or even appearing in court.  I have spent many years trying lawsuits in courts all over the state of Texas, at all levels.  I have argued before the courts of appeals all over the state as well, including landmark cases presented to the Supreme Court of Texas.  I know what it's like to be in the courtroom, and how to manage your case for the judge or jury, and will use that experience to get you the best result.

Phenomenal Attorney
George was retained to represent me in my divorce. There are no words to express my gratitude for such incredible, professional representation. Despite being a complicated divorce with various assets, an unusual division of same and significant information to review and digest, George managed to get the divorce finalized in 72 days. He was meticulously thorough to ensure my best interests were protected. His genuine concern and compassion eased my stress and emotion during what has proven to be the worst time in my life. I would HIGHLY recommend George!!!!

Best of the best!
George came highly recommended to me and I would gladly refer to him. He handled my case with the utmost professionalism. He prepared me for the worst and we had the best possible outcome. My divorce was over in 60 days!! He is kind, treats you with respect and prepared to play hard, if needed. Thank you for all your help.

Highly Recommend George!
George and I were embroiled in an almost 2-year divorce proceeding. George provided sound, professional advice throughout the process. He stayed on top of all the critical issues and delivered a resounding victory in the final trial, exceeding my expectations. I am truly satisfied with George's representation.

Great demeanor, listens, excellent staff
My ex-wife and I hired George for divorce mediation. My ex wasn't knowledgable about asset division with a divorce and had a lot of expectations that weren't really accurate. George was able to educate her, and keep her calm, and keep her in mediation until she signed. I wasn't very confident she would sign after 10 months of separation. George did it. He's very patient, he listens, he has a very kind disposition that is perfect for mediation. This mediation lasted 7 hours and he was 100% with us the whole time. After mediation, paperwork has to be filed and signed. He and his staff were on top of all of it and were incredibly responsive to our questions. I had so much anxiety going into this process. George and his staff really took care of me and I can't recommend them enough.

Superb Service On Short Notice
Cannot say enough good things about Mr. Crumley. I was in a bind with little to no time to prepare for my case. George was on the ball immediately and was able to get a most favorable outcome. Extremely professional and the communication was second to none. Exceptional service in all aspects.

BEST divorce and modification attorney!
George Crumley is one of the top notch divorce/modification attorney's in Collin County! I had been through 3 other attorney's during my initial divorce and after with modifications from my ex-husband before hiring George. George listened and fought for me and my daughters. He was honest, and up front. George didn't promise anything that he couldn't guarantee. My ex-husband continued to bring me back for modifications, 4 times. I continued to retain George as my attorney for the last 2 modifications, and was successful in shutting down my ex from continuing the modifications that he repeated requested. He isn't cheap, but well worth every penny I spend with him. George has the best interests of his clients and works hard until he gets results! I will not hesitate to use George Crumley again if necessary. If you need an attorney that will fight hard on your difficult divorce or modification George is the attorney you will want in your corner!

Excellent lawyer
George was a wonderful advocate for me. He listened and worked hard on my behalf. He was available when I needed to communicate with him and very responsive in replying to any questions or concerns I might have and took his time in explaining things to me that I might not understand. He helped me through one of the worst times of my life and made it as easy as possible.

Best Family Lawyer in Collin County
I spent years in court battling my ex, and went through two well known lawyers before I found George. I had just about given up thinking there was nothing that I could do (that's what my previous lawyer told me). When I told George the story of what was happening, he said, "well, we can file a TRO and put a stop to that immediately". Why my previous two lawyers didn't do that, I have no idea. Out of the 13 injunctions that we asked for against my ex, we won 12 of them. This was after the previous lawyers told me that it was a waste of my time and $. I still use him for advice on certian matters, and will definitely, 100% continue to use him with any custody matters that may come up in the future.

I have had a very difficult divorce where the other party was behaving erratic best throwing all kinds of road blocks prolonging the agony. I know this is expected in many divorces, but George handled the situations with professionalism and out most care. He was able to come up with creative ways to ensure that I received the best possible settlement with best legal fees. I appreciate all his assistance.

Attention to detail and great in court
George handled two cases for me including an eviction of a horrible tenant and a lawsuit for damages. We went to court on both and won both cases and received judgments for 100% of our damages and all of my attorney's fees. Even the judge in the second case was impressed! I could not be happier. He was kind and patient and was very detailed, and was VERY prepared in court. I highly recommend him!

George Crumbly - Successful Results Driven Lawyer
Mr. Crumbly represented me in an auto related accident that left me with a head injury and whip lash. He made sure I received the proper car and got a settlement for my injuries. It was a complicated case as I have had TBI’s in the past. Mr. Crumbly was professional, attentive to my needs and produced results. He always was honest about the case and it’s merits. Highly recommend George for your attorney needs.

Superstar attorney.
George was was extremely knowledgeable, insightful, and showed an incredibly high degree of patience, understanding, and genuine compassion for not only me. But, more importantly my children’s well being throughout our case. He was able to accomplish what two other previous attorneys could not. Beyond being an exception attorney, he is a good man. I would highly recommend George.

Best Choice for effective representation!!
I was recommended to George by a lifetime friend who I trusted. I could not have been better represented! From the moment I met with George, it was obvious he was smart, super knowledgeable, insightful, and comforting as well. He represented me in a very high conflict divorce where my ex was seeking not only full custody, but also multiple motions for enforcement with some very scary consequences, even jail time. George was professional and effective all along the way, providing great representation for me and my boys. The result was a total win!! I got my boys and my ex was denied on all his motions. I am so grateful to George for everything he did to provide me with the experience and skill I needed in this situation and could not be happier with the outcome. George cares about his clients and is the guy to have in your corner!!

Best Lawyer Ever
Immediately upon hiring Mr. George Crumley as my divorce lawyer, he called and introduced himself. He is quick to respond to phone calls, and he emails frequently with updates, information, and copies of communication from the opposition. He fought tooth and nail for me, and I am ever grateful for his work ethic and thorough investigation. His character is nothing less than superior. I would absolutely recommend George Crumley to anyone in need of an experienced, well-schooled, seasoned, driven lawyer who is highly admired among his peers.

Attorney with Integrity
George met my goal of finalizing my divorce at the end of the 60 day waiting period. George has integrity, is trustworthy, reliable and good at keeping things calm. All of my goals with George were reached in a timely manner. I highly recommend him. He is mindful of keeping expenses reasonable and to a minimum, which is in itself is a rarity among lawyers. I met George through a referral. I highly recommend George.

Excellent/Trustworthy Lawyer
I can't say enough about George. My divorce was not a quick one because of a difficult - now EX Husband. George is trustworthy, dependable, down to earth, tells it like it is and had my best interest at all times. Great knowledge of the law and very good at reading people. I would highly recommend utilizing him. I actually came to him via a referral. He kept my kids safe which was the number one goal. The remainder that was awarded was a bonus.

Best family lawyer I ever met
George is an exceptionally talented lawyer who knows the right solution to my case. I started with a mutual agreed divorce agreement between me and my ex, where part of the agreement on child support has some ambiguity in terms of legal terms. The other party make a big deal on this and tried hard to get me punished on my good willed, yet legally ambiguous agreement. George helped me win my case with the best benefit I can get. More importantly, it restore my trust to American legal system. I would other wise think the case in "Chicago" is still playing. George is honest and reasonable in charge, and have good communications with client. I highly recommend George to represent you in your case of family law.
