I recently had a very positive experience with Crary Buchanan and with Mike Crary specifically. He was able to take a traumatic event in my life that required legal action, patiently walk me through my options, translate the industry jargon into plain language, obtain justice for me, and provide me with the closure I needed so I could move on. Mike and his colleagues at Crary Buchanan provide excellent legal services but just as important, they do it with heart. I would highly recommend them!

As an attorney with a non-traditional practice, I often need to refer business to outside counsel. Crary Buchanan has a team of attorneys that I refer clients to for a variety of needs. Recently, Robert A. Shaffer has provided estate planning services to several clients going through difficult times in their lives. He has handled their issues with the care and respect that is expected, but often lost at other firms. The broad capabilities of the Crary Buchanan team make them the best one-stop shop for local legal matters.
