Naranjo Not Guilty verdict
My son was going through a nasty divorce. His ex-wife, made false accusations and had my son arrested. I had never met Virginia Crews prior to the trial. Our family had never been in a situation like this and after meeting her and opening arguments I already knew that God had sent us the right attorney. If any of you ever find yourself being charged in false or any kind of criminal arrest, I would definitely give her a call and I pray that I never have to again. Thank you Virginia. You were truly a godsend and my family and I will be forever grateful !!!

Dedicated & supportive!
Nobody wants to hear about a family member being arrested for a criminal charge. When I received a call that my son had been arrested, I called Ms. Crews first. She immediately reassure me and started working on the case. She was supportive and worked hard. She met with us and answered all of our questions. She never made us feel like a burden. I hope I’ll never need a lawyer again, but if I do. I’m calling Ms. Crews first!

Came Highly Recommended to Me, Now I Highly Recommend Her To You!
From the moment they were hired, Crews didn’t waste anytime coming up to the jail to gather information that would help her put my case together. The Shawn Hamp office works as a unified unit. From the office staff to the paralegals to Virginia, all are quick to respond to any questions or concerns through the client portal they set up for quick and effective communication! They fought for my freedom as the DA was determined to give me multiple years prison time. With the efforts and do diligence of Virginia and her entire staff the judge sentenced me to probation. I was able to come home and be with my family and new born son. Now with the holidays approaching I can not thank Virginia and the entire staff enough for fighting for my freedom. I was blessed to find them and have them represents me in court through this troubling time! I would recommend Virginia Crews to anyone in need of legal council! They know the law, they do the research and will fight for you as they did me! I am 100% satisfied with their services and of course the outcome of the case! It was money well spent. If I am ever in need of legal council you can sure bet your hide I will be calling on Virginia for her representation.

Great Criminal Defense Attorney in Mohave County
After consulting with Ms. Crews, I was satisfied with the level of service she offered and subsequently hired her to defend my case. As my case progressed, she provided quick communication and had several plans in place contingent upon developments. Ultimately, my case was resolved via plea deal and she negotiated a very favorable deal for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone in Arizona that needs a top-tier criminal defense attorney.

Just the person you want on your side
Attorney Crews has helped my family through an extremely hard time in our lives. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. She was at every hearing and met with us before and after to ensure we understood what was happening. If I ever need an Attorney again in the future, Attorney Crews is who I will call.

My "AHA" moment!
Attorney Virginia Cruz was my "aha" moment in my case. Her Associates and entire office were fantastic but Virginia Crews was that last bit of satisfactory encouragement and legal fight that I needed. I would highly recommend her offices in her services to anyone. Thank you so much for Virginia I was truly blessed with you on my side. Keep the faith. Psalm 46:10 "Be Still"

Excellent and Dedicated Lawyer
We hired Virgina crews for our daughter, who was facing very serious charges. She was very proffesional and really caring, in fact, Her whole law team was great, and very helpful. Virgina always responed promptly, everytime we had a question and always kept us informed about everything happening. I would most definatly recommend Virgina crews. Our daughter was facing serious chargers, she did end up getting 6 months in jail, but was facing 8 years. She was there from start to finish.

Highly Recommend!
I came upon Virginia Crews from very high recommendations from friends. I had previously got myself in trouble and was represented by another firm that I don't feel did their due diligence. Fast forward to my current probation violation I was set up with. In a full panic and scared to death, from the moment I was in contact with the office I have been confident in allowing all in the office to be involved in helping me overcome the situation. From my manic calls and text to the face-to-face sit-down meetings to fully explain to me every aspect of my case. I would highly recommend their representation. Also, the mycase document system is always current and extremely valuable.

Simply Excellent
Virginia was thorough, well spoken, timely, friendly and in general I was glad to have her representing me. Every time I spoke to her I left the conversation with great confidence that I was in good hands. She was very personable and really seemed to understand my concerns and have empathy towards them. Very happy with the outcome and the process along the way.

Boating Under the Influence reduced to reckless vessel operation
I was charged with a BUI after blowing 0.08 in Katherine's Landing and a couple equipment violations (nav lights and Type IV flotation device). I hired Mr. Hamp to contest the BUI and violations, he negotiated a plea agreement of reckless vessel operation, 1 year probation and dismissed all other violations. Ms. Crews was covering for Mr. Hamp during my court appearance. She was professional, detail oriented and very thorough prior and during court. For first timers like me, it helps to know what to expect in court, she explained the process and answered all my questions. Having her as my lawyer gave me relief, strength and confidence during prior and court.

Chase Salveson vs State of Arizona
I am the sister of Chase Salveson and do have permission to consult & speak with Mrs. Crews about my brothers' case. He has been charged with 1st degree Murder and Conspiracy to commit 1st degree Murder of Raymond Sanchez. We went to trial last Sept. 2015 and she did an amazing, just awesome job as his trial lawyer, I could not believe how committed dhhe was in defending Chase. He was acquitted on the 1st degree murder charge. And a hung jury on the Conspirscy charge and that was due to a tainted jury member who was the father of an officer working for B.H.C. POLICE DEPT, where this case originated from. Virginia Crews is one of the best criminal defence lawyers I have ever , in my lifetime, seen in action, dking the best job she could in a very serious trial...proving my brother , Chases' innocence! She did an outstanding, excellent job. Bravo!

Amazing Work!
First off, I'd like to thank Virginia Crews and everyone at the Law Offices of Shawn Hamp. They were welcoming, and assuring right from the beginning. I was falsely charged with reckless operation of a PWC, and the court offered me a plea of 12 months probation, 15 days of suspended jail time, and a fine. However right after acquiring the services of the law of offices of Shawn Hamp, things began to change right away. Within a month after hiring them, they were able to get my case dismissed. All of this was possible without me having to travel back to Arizona from California. Thank you again for your wonderful service!
