Having never been involved in a divorce proceeding before, Patrick Crawford put me at ease, explained fully up front what to expect in this adversarial situation, my rights and obligations, time constraints, data required, court procedure, and costs involved. Timely communications between attorney and client was of the essence, and my attorney fully complied in all respects. He was always available to answer any questions and to alert me to the next step in the process. He was fully trustworthy which was very important to me. And he was clearly competent in his knowledge and application of the law. He seemed to be highly respected by his peers both at the courthouse and among opposing counsel. The fact that he is a sole practitioner, I believe, stood him in good stead with me because I felt I was receiving his full attention and the closeness of his office to the court house further expedited his responses to the court with minimum delay and expense.
