I would like to thank attorney William Crawforth and his assistant, Caroline, for successfully guiding my request for Social Security disability through very dense layers of government bureaucracy.
Despite what turned into a very lengthy process my emails were immediately answered and Caroline was always willing to spend time updating me on our progress.
I would highly recommend Mr. Crawforth for anyone seeking legal assistance regarding their Social Security benefits.
Thank you so very much for handling my Social Security disability case. When I first searched the internet for attorneys, I was drawn to your website because you freely gave me much information. I learned things about the process from your website. Other websites just told me to call them, and gave little or no information.
I cannot thank you enough for not only winning my case, but for your professionalism in court. The judge even thanked you for your professionalism, integrity and honesty. I would also like to acknowledge Caroline, who works in your office. I have had many conversations with her. She is absolutely wonderful, always professional, courteous, and calmed my fears, while explaining things I did not understand. (she deserves a raise!!!)
I will HIGHLY recommend anyone I know that needs an attorney with your expertise. What a relief to my family and I, having you not only win my case, but also do it in a timely manner. You and Caroline truly CARE, and I will always appreciate you.
Mr. Crawforth and staff were outstanding in the work they did for me! Excellent job.

Mr. Crawforth took our case, helped us through everything, even after our case went to court and we couldn’t get paid from Social Security. He was amazing. We are are grateful to him and would highly recommend him as a lawyer and good person to any of our friends.
I just wanted to take a minute to say “thank you” for all of your help in the successful disposition of my disability case. Your hard work and professional experience helped to cut through the “red tape” and government bureaucracy thereby expediting my appeal.
You and your staff treated me like family. I don’t know what I would have done without your help. I will be recommending your services to my friends and family. Thank you for everything.
I was extremely pleased with Mr. Crawforth’s representation of my case. His office staff were very pleasant and helpful. My entire experience was a positive one.
