Read What Our Clients Have To Say

  • "Craig Trainor takes a lot of pride in his cases and his role as a lawyer. I was falsely arrested for DWI and he won my case. He is very dedicated, knowledgeable, experienced and observant to detail. He caught all the mistakes made by the cops in my case that led to my false arrest. He cross examined them and even had one stammering on the witness stand. He is aggressively active from opening to closing arguments during trial. He showed the jury I was innocent, and they all agreed. Without any doubt, I highly recommend Craig Trainor for any trial case. He is the real deal."


    5 Star Rating

  • "When faced with the notion of getting a public defender who would have me take a deal, I realized that I’d won the lottery getting Craig. I highly recommend him in any facet of law he practices as he is a lawyer’s lawyer and appreciates the fine art of litigation. And upholding the oath of serving his clients to the best of his ability. If you retain him, you will not be sorry. He delivers excellence in law the way it is supposed to be. He is a class act and I believe will prevail in any case he takes on."


    5 Star Rating

  • "Mr. Trainor took on a complex case for me that was likely to fall apart in court against the city. Mr. Trainor’s experience, intelligence, creativity & honesty produced an unlikely win. The real victory was the unexpected level of success in the pay day Mr. Trainor “negotiated” with the city. I have worked with close to 20 lawyers in the city. Mr. Trainor is the one I am recommending."
