Welcome

At Crispin Employment Lawyers, we believe in doing things right. Our lawyers represent individuals and others only in matters involving the employment relationship and personal injury. Our experienced trial lawyers believe in resolving clients' claims in the most favorable way possible, by negotiation, mediation, or federal and state jury trial.

Crispin Employment Lawyers is proud to announce that Craig A. Crispin, founding member of the firm, was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015 in the category of Employment Law – Individuals.

Since its inception in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because The Best Lawyers in America® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called The Best Lawyers in America® "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."

"All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence."
