What Makes Us Different

Our practice focuses on the whole person. Unlike most attorneys, our focus is on minimizing your stress. Whether litigation, or a simple real estate purchase, we seek to understand the whole picture first and then give our recommendations!

Unlike a large law firm, John M. Crane, P.C. provides personal attention to each and every client. By only accepting a small number of clients, we are able to focus all our energies into each matter, delivering the legal representation of larger firms, along with the customer service experience of a fine dining restaurant.  You will meet only with John, be walked step by step through your entire process, and understand what is going on at all times.  We have evening and weekend hours.  You will get a confidential appointment right away and always be treated with respect.  There is no filling out 20 page Questionnaires before you ever speak to an attorney.  You will meet with John and decide if you want to work with him before you ever give us any information! 


Although you will work only with John, John does not work alone!  John has research professionals and expert trial attorneys with which he collaborates so that whether a condo purchase or a major lawsuit, each client receives the highest level of legal service.


To understand John’s consultative approach towards real estate transactions or handling your litigation matter, or in providing bankruptcy and foreclosure avoidance solutions, feel free to call him directly at (212) 748-9477.  Because we are attorneys and not salespeople, we will not ask you for any information.  Ask questions and receive answers.
