LAW OFFICES OF BERNARD CRANE
"A little while ago Mr. Crane handled a situation on my behalf. I could not have asked for a better advocate. Mr. Crane's tireless commitment in pursuit of the truth in my defense was utterly amazing. Nothing was ever sprung on me, he always gave me the truth in what was going on and in the next road we would go down. I say we because I never felt like I was alone in my situation. He will always be my lawyer of choice and I hope my friend."
Excellent! We got the best outcome possible!!
"I cannot even begin to thank Bernard Crane for all of his help. Not only was his legal representation impeccable, but his support in offering us reputable resources and advice, above and beyond the legalities of our situation, were priceless. We were impressed from the very beginning at his professionalism, reassurance and candor, while always treating my son with the utmost respect. The end result was the absolute best case scenario. I hope we don't need legal representation again, but if we do he will be the first person we call, no doubt about it!"
"Bernard Crane is an incredibly dedicated and hardworking attorney. His work ethic and commitment to his clients is equally as impressive as his overall good nature. While his record speaks for itself, I would also highly recommend Mr. Crane to represent any of my friends or family in need of a good attorney with proven results."
Best Legal Representation!
"Over the years, I have had the unfortunate need to hire many lawyers for various legal issues. By far, Mr. Crane has been one of the best attorneys retained. He has represented me and my companies for many years and I couldn't be more pleased. He explains the procedures, time lines, expenses, and possible outcome(s) before hand and he is almost 100% accurate. Hope he never retires so there will be no need to hire someone else."
"Mr. Crane has provided me with business counsel for over 20 years. His expertise includes legal administration to contract review to tips on business negotiation and long range planning. In addition, Mr. Crane is highly responsive to meet my immediate business needs. He is a well trusted business adviser and provides both a legal view as well as a business perspective."
"My daughter had an encounter with the legal system which put her at serious risk. It was her good fortune to have Bernard Crane appointed to defend her. Mr. Crane took the time to deal with her physical disabilities and exercised the compassion needed to understand her unique psychological/social issues. He communicated clearly with her and defended her with great skill. At a time that consumed my daughter with fear and anxiety for her future, her confidence in Mr. Crane gave her hope. Mr. Crane negotiated a plea agreement that was fair to all involved. Mr. Crane's commitment to this case went above and beyond our expectations. He is a skilled attorney with deep compassion and understanding of the people he represents. You will be well served with Bernard Crane as your attorney."
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mr. Crane's work. He's personal, savvy, focused and experienced! Does great legal work. Some time ago my partner got into some trouble. It appeared he was doomed and destined for a long prison sentence. Mr. Crane worked very closely with us, on life issues and supported us beyond the end of his case. Mr. Crane understands the relationships necessary to work with Judges and Prosecutors; and how to direct his clients in order to get the best outcomes. I highly recommend him."
"Throughout my career handling business needs of some of the world’s largest public and private companies, and in instances regarding personal matters as well, I have encountered circumstances requiring legal counsel. In many of those circumstances, I have sought counsel from Bernie Crane. Each time, I have found his knowledge of law, both civil and criminal, his extensive experience, his careful attention to detail, and generally, his unwavering focus on the concerns and welfare of his client, to be invaluable. His expertise in matters of contract and other complex business matters has been particularly evident, as is his ability to simplify complexity and devise practical, real-world solutions to problems. I would recommend Bernie Crane to anyone in need of sound legal counsel. "
"Bernard was very professional when handling my expungement case. He was timely in his response and walked me through the whole process. He really helped me out since he could meet in DC which is where I live and work."
"Mr. Crane is an angel sent by God....or whomever you believe in. I don’t know much about sports but, if we’re speaking football, he’s Tom Brady! Not only he is extremely intelligent and well know within the judicial system, he is also very fashionable. Mr. Crane is understanding, compassionate, sincere, straightforward and disciplined. About a week after I spoke with Mr. Crane, I had a personal incident with an ex partner. An incident that had completed nothing to do with why I was seeking representation. I currently work in the airline industry and due to my ex partner, I had no choice but to squat in the airport for two months. It was tough! Sleeping on the airport floor, bathing myself in the restroom sink and I worked 202.7 hours in what is equivalent to a two weeks time frame. I lost my partner, one of my vehicles, my self respect and was on the verge of losing my job. Mr. Crane saved me! I have now been offered a better paid position with more opportunity. If know one else reads this post, I would just like to say thank you Mr. Crane for being my knight in shining armor. God Bless you! -Antonio Parker"
"We can't even begin our very sincere appreciation & gratitude for the professional works and supports from Mr. Crane, while he was representing my nephew in a federal case involving illegal purchase of restricted items.
Very early on Mr. Crane sought active communications with a lawyer from overseas, where my nephew was being held pending extradition to the US for trials. Throughout the legal process, Mr. Crane worked tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcomes. He provided us with sensible and realistic advice & guidance on necessary arrangements and forthcoming steps. He took great care and interest in my nephew's emotional and welfare needs. He's certainly a lawyer with great skills, knowledge, and heart. We feel blessed that this harrowing and nerve wracking case concluded successfully with much better outcome and much shorter time than expected."
"Mr. Crane was a very knowledgeable attorney. I was very pleased with his representation and the favorable legal outcome. I believe retaining his legal services was one of the best investments I made. He is definitely worth every penny of a retainer fee."
"We got the right attorney for the best outcome possible!!
My son had been arrested and extradited to Washington DC encounter exporting substances without license. This might put him into jail for number of years and distorting his future. Thanks God, we are so lucky to have Bernard Crane appointed to defend him. Mr. Crane consumed a lot of time in this case. He traveled to see my son to understand his problems and explored ways for the defending. Mr. Crane has his talent in defending my son’s case with the highest professional skill. He negotiated a plea agreement that far better than our expectation. Mr. Crane will never let you alone to face the anxiety and uncertainties. I highly appreciate Bernard Crane to serve as our attorney."
"Since we live in Texas we were dependent on the reviews we found online. Mr Crane stood out in the reviews and we are so happy with our outcome. Mr Crane responded promptly to our concerns and kept us informed throughout the entire process and our case was right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr Crane did his homework and our case was dismissed. So if you are like us and live out of state, Mr Crane is the criminal attorney we all deserve. Thank you so much. "
" I retained Mr. Crane in February 2019 to represent me in a Traffic case in VA. He was very responsive from day one and took the time to explain his strategy, the information he would need from me, and what to expect on court day. He made sure to answer all of my questions and was available by phone, text and email. I received a very positive outcome on my case as a result of Mr. Crane's effort. If you're looking for an attorney who will listen to your concerns and work on your behalf to obtain the best possible outcome, contact Mr. Crane."
"Bernard Crane is an excellent criminal defense lawyer. He understands criminal law, having practiced in DC and Northern Virginia for many years. He is ethical and will assess case outcomes based on the law and facts of your case. He is a good listener and will take the time to understand your case. He always returns phones calls and emails. Text messages too.
He is a strategic thinker and can assimilate a great deal of information (evidence) and use that information to move his client’s case forward. I had just turned 18 and was facing 4 felony charges in the District of Columbia. Mr. Crane spent countless hours reviewing the evidence to build a strong defense for me.
He engaged an investigator to go to the crime scene to gather more evidence in favor of my defense. Mr. Crane determined that plainclothes and uniformed MPD officers approached me without a warrant or probable cause. I did not consent to be stopped or searched and asked repeatedly if I was under arrest.
I was physically held against my will and questioned repeatedly even though I asserted my constitutional rights not to consent to a voluntary search. Mr. Crane filed a motion with the court to suppress the evidence in the case because the officers had no probable cause to arrest or even detain and search me.
Furthermore, in detaining me, Mr. Crane pointed out that at no time did the officers inform me of my “Miranda” rights. The court agreed with Mr. Crane, dismissing all four felonies against me. Now, I am headed to college to study cybersecurity and entrepreneurship instead of heading to the federal penitentiary for 5 to 7 years. Mr. Crane’s legal defense gave me my life back.
If you need a really amazing criminal defense lawyer to help you resolve a criminal matter in Washington, DC or Northern Virginia, you need to hire Bernard Crane. He is a 5-Star lawyer. He is the best that money can buy and worth every penny. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Crane without reservation based on my personal experience."
"I have recently received a speeding ticket going over 25 mph on 395 in the tunnel in DC going northbound (the speed limit was 35 at the time). The moment I received the ticket I immediately did research on how to fight the ticket. I looked at DC's driving demerit point system and found out that it could cost me five demerit points on my DC record. I am a New York State driver originally from the NYC tri-state area and I moved to DC primarily for a doctoral program. I was on my way back from Manassas, VA working out, which was around a 47 minute drive. I looked up Mr. Crane, explained to him about my situation. And he schooled me on game. He explains that DC's traffic laws are little stricter than the traffic laws of NYC. Both systems have a win or lose jurisdiction when it comes to traffic tickets. The real kicker came when he told me that you could easily be charged with reckless driving if you go 30 mph or more in DC or you go 20 mph or more or crack 80 mph or more regardless of the posted speed limit in the Commonwealth of Virginia. That floored me. I gave him a shot, picked the latest court date possible. The moment the date came, expecting to pay the fine and have points on the DC record. I was told by Mr. Crane that the charges were dropped. I was very fortunate and very lucky, which gave me a new lease on life and taught me to be more aware and more defensive when it comes to driving in these jurisdictions of DC and Virginia. It also made me appreciate how looser the traffic laws are in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York State, and Connecticut (which can get you for reckless if caught going 85 mph or more regardless of the posted speed limit). I am extremely grateful for Mr. Crane's help and guidance on helping me navigate the traffic laws of the DMV. I will look to hire him again if I somehow get jammed up in either DC or Virginia whether it is a regular moving violation or a reckless driving charge."
"Mr. Crane was absolutely pivotal in helping me with my case. He is a great attorney and I have recommended him to others who couldn’t have been more happy with his work and results. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Crane."
"Bernard Crane is an amazing attorney! I had three charges in Fairfax County, 2 failure to provide registration and driving on a suspended license 3 off which is a misdemeanor offense and is a possible jail-able offense. Mr. Crane represented me for all three offenses and had all of the charges dismissed. Mr. Crane was always available to answer any of my questions whenever I had them and was very kind and friendly. Mr. Crane let me know what information I needed to bring and was very helpful throughout the stressful process. I would highly recommend Mr. Crane to represent you. Mr. Crane is organized, punctual and knows what he’s doing."
" Very helpful in with my case. He was kind enough to give me free consultation over the phone and it helped out tremendously. This is the type of guy who won't nickle and dime you but really help you out with the legal system. Will contact again if I run into any issues in the future."
"I called for a consultation on photo enforced speeding tickets in DC and Bernie spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with me explaining everything I needed to know, my options, and what to do next. He gave honest advice of recommending not hiring a lawyer because it would not be in my best interest financially. Not only did he save me money, he then walked me through how to go about the process of contesting the ticket to try to get some or all of the ticket fee reduced. I appreciated his information and time."
"Great criminal defense attorney!
"I called Bernard for a consultation about a pending DWI case in Virginia and he was more than gracious with his time and expertise in answering my question to the best of his ability. He went out of his way to help me and I was relieved after speaking with him and hearing the depth of his expertise."
"I highly recommend Bernie to anyone and everyone facing a DWI/DUI/OVI case. Bernie has a very specialized skill set that a lot of attorneys do not have. Bernie has completed the NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Test certification course and knows exactly what to look for when handling these cases."
"Bernie is a highly trained and certified regarding NHTSA field sobriety testing. Because of this certification, Bernie knows how to explain what you, the accused, did right on a sobriety test, and what the arresting officer did wrong. Bernie should be among your first choices for any OVI/DUI/DWI case. I highly recommend this attorney."

Mr. Crane immediately got to work and helped us on an extremely tight deadline. As part of our transaction, I spent almost an hour on the phone discussing legal issues involved in the matter. The breadth of Mr. Cranes knowledge regarding the issues was extensive. Moreover, his meticulous approach to the subject matter ensured my client ended up with a much better product than I could have provided by myself. I can recommend and endorse Mr. Crane highly for all facets of Business Law and encourage others to work with him."
