What Patrick’s clients say about him.


"Couldn’t have asked for more!"

I couldn’t be happier with my choice in hiring Patrick Crawford. From day one I explained to him this will probably not be an easy case and I did not have much money. I am a young father who was just fighting for my rights to have an equal opportunity to raise my son. Patrick Crawford worked with me on the finances and gave sound legal advice all the way through the court battle. Among all of the evidence, I provided he utilized the evidence that he knew was crucial to the case and sorted out the evidence that would not bear weight in court. In the end, he fought my case in trial and did very well in court considering the other party was fighting for full physical and full legal with me only having my son every other weekend. My son is 16 months old and I now have both joint physical and joint legal custody of him in a state that is often seen as a mother-favoring state. I am so excited to move on with our lives and now have a future with my son that is no longer limited and I am so grateful for Mr. Crawford’s efforts and patience for my case. I definitely recommend him.


"Skilled, Efficient, Professional, extremely helpful"

I retained Mr. Crawford for a child support modification and I could not have been more satisfied with my end result. Mr. Crawford was very knowledgeable and speedy in resolving my issues and guided me through the process with care and compassion. His fees for his excellent work are very reasonable and worth every penny. I recommend him as the top notch family law attorney to go to for all of your family legal needs. I hope that I do not have to retain his services again but I will do so without hesitation should the need arise. Hiring Mr. Crawford is a smart choice.


"Excellent, Professional, and Highly Recommended"

Patrick Crawford is one of the best lawyers I have ever met. He paid close attention to detail, was extremely professional, and very personable. During a difficult divorce process, he made sure to make the process smooth and worry free. He took complete control and succeeded beyond expectations. Besides his prestigious education, Patrick also has a solid demeanor in the courtroom. As a medical professional, success during the process was of the utmost importance and Patrick delivered. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Maryland/DC area.


"Child Custody Case"

I am extremely satisfied with Patrick and his abilities to get me the best results in my case. He was very knowledgeable and always kept me informed about my case. He was relentless and a go getter in pursuing a victory for me. He still answers my questions even after my case was settled. I would use him again and recommend him to and of my friends, family, or the general public.


"Knowledgeable Attorney, Looks out for Your B"

Patrick took on my divorce and child custody case after I had spent more than two years and lots of money with another attorney, trying to finalize a divorce and custody agreement. I found him knowledgeable about the process and the law. I appreciated how quickly he got up to speed on the details of my particular situation and settled on an approach and strategy for how to continue with my proceedings. Due to some legal work and filings already being completed in my case, in some cases, Patrick had to deal first with those, and then move on to the next step in his own strategy. It made for a more difficult case, I believe, but he negotiated the system and the steps with ease, discussing options with me, educating me on how things work, and working with me to make the best decisions. I appreciated his advice and time. In the end, Patrick took more than two years of legal work that had been handled by another attorney, sorted through it all and decided how best to re-try my case, and worked with me to get a solid, favorable divorce settlement and custody arrangement, within a very favorable timeframe.


"Efficiency and expertise!"

Tucked away in the heart of Annapolis is this highly recommended esquire of family law. Patrick Crawford takes advantage of his considerable expertise and experience, adds technology, and is thus one of the most efficient lawyers I have heard about, much less experienced. His advice is frank and direct, even when it is not what one wants to hear. He is a no-nonsense, “get-it-done” fellow who tells it like it is and makes it happen. He works as a partner with his client throughout the legal process. He’s also personable enough and just sympathetic enough to make the legal wrangles more palatable. Do not let his youthful looks deceive you – this is a veteran with the knowledge and experience to guard a client’s interests and pursue the best possible course, but still, let the client steer. An invaluable counselor.

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.

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.
