Life saver
I hired Randall Craig to assist in helping my nephew get out of some legal trouble he got into while visiting Scottsdale. Randal responded to my web request within 1 hour (personally) and he was more than willing to work with me as far as the fee. He also allowed me to make payments. Because my nephew didn't live in Scottsdale Mr Craig appeared several times in court to represent us. What should have been mandatory jail time Mr Craig was able to get the charge knocked down to a misdemeanor and probation with a small fine. I cant say enough about the communication and the end result. I highly recommend him and his staff for the way they handled our case.

I feel comfortable with him handling my case
Absolutely phenomenal representation. My case is still ongoing but I have the utmost respect and appreciation for Mr. Randall Craig. I trust him fully after having met with several other lawyers in the valley.

Randall saved my life
I was facing 50+ years in prison for false charges. Randy believed in me. My public defender tried to convince me that Jail and years of intense probation were my only option. I then hired Randy. 3 months later my case was dismissed and I am now at home with my family and get to watch my son grow up. His assistant is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy. I have a "checkered past" to say the least and have dealt with over 10 attorneys in my life. Randy is head and shoulders above the rest! THANK YOU RANDY!!

Best Lawyer in town
Having never committed a crime, ending up in jail was a humiliating experience for me. His staff kept me informed, Mr. Craig kept me calm, and in the end he was able to negotiate the right deal for me. He has simple flat rates and doesn't bill you for things like copies and phone calls. JC

Great Trial Lawyer
Mr. Craig was very assertive, professional and really made me feel good about having hired him. Never paid a dime or served any time, despite my repeated run ins with the law Mr. Craig shut them down before they ever got started. On both occassions we had to go to court they just gave us what we asked for. Great lawyer with mad skills! He tells it like it is for his clients and is the one whom you want on your side in court!

Not the greatest guy
I hired Randall Craig to defend my case, and I was less than impressed. He was available in the beginning, while he was trying to take my money. Once he had my money, he was nowhere to be found. He seemed far more in a rush to settle, rather than actually tackle or fight the case, or gain the facts. Throughout it all, he had a fairly callous attitude and was judgmental about the whole process (despite the charge being extremely minor). Overall, you could do far better than him, and I would recommend somebody else who is less eager to simply take your money but provide no real service
