Client Testimonials

Hi Steve,

I hope you are well. Just wanted to drop you a note. You had represented my daughter in Santa Barbara back in 2013, in her arrest for drunk in public and took good care of us. I know you have daughters too and thought you would like to know that she graduated a couple of weeks ago from UCSB with honors. I wanted to thank you for your expertise and heartfelt care in taking care of her case. I think she learned a life lesson from her misstep and, with your help, has a clear path to a productive future. From one dad to another, thanks so much.

M.H.


Steve,

3.5 years sober and staying out of trouble! Thanks for all of your help and good advice.

K.S.


Steve,

No one could have done what you did, we are very grateful!

W.S.


Dear Steve,

I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you looking into my situation and following through. It has been so hard for me to process and your guidance has been invaluable.

S.R.


Steve,

Thank your for everything and helping me turn my life around.

J.D.


Steve,

I thank you for your competence, your professionalism, and the prompt attention you gave to my every call and inquiry, even though in the broad scope of the problems you handle, mine was probably a minor case. I came to you on the referral of a former client of yours. I will now be that client when the occasion arises.

D.W.


Sam,

This ordeal has been quite miserable for me and my family, but without your help resolving the court case in exemplary fashion and your ongoing advice regarding the driving license issue, I know I wouldn't be as poised as I am to resume my normal, productive life. Thank you very much for efforts on my behalf, and please extend my thanks to your staff as well.

J.S.


Dear Steve,

Thank you for your help, your time and effort on this frustrating case. We appreciate all you did.

L.L.


Dear Steve,

The end of my brother’s case is a huge weight off our parents’ shoulders, and they are very grateful. I can’t begin to thank you enough. I am eternally indebted to you for all you’ve done. Thank you again.

T.G.


Dear Professor Cron,

We just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful semester. Though some of us were nervous about taking trial practice, the course ended up being one of our favorites thus far in law school. We really appreciate your dedication to the course and all of the interesting speakers we had throughout the semester. Also, thanks for taking us all out for drinks on the last night of class - that was such a great celebration for the end of the semester! We all hope to see you in the near future.

B.B, D.M., T.J., S.G.


Steve,

THANK YOU AGAIN. You have changed my life in so many ways. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again for being a champion. You are a special man. I am so grateful you were willing to put your valuable reputation, relationships, experience and expertise into service on my behalf. Talk to you soon & thank you again.

Always, J.S.


Dear Steve,

I called your office the moment I received your letter. I am not sure where to begin to express to you my deep gratitude for everything you have done for me. Your patience and support have always been very much appreciated. You truly held my hand for the past four years! From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Best Regards, M.W.


Steve,

I know I have said it time and time again, but THANK YOU, Steve. Hearing other peoples’ stories has made me even more aware of what a great deal you got for me and even more grateful for how hard you fought for me. I know you tried to walk me through everything so many times, but regardless of the fact that I consider myself a fairly intelligent person, there was so much of what was said in your office and the court room that part went in one ear and out the other. I’ll blame my lack of retention on my emotions. So once again, my continual refrain, thank you, Steve. I’m so grateful for you and all you’ve done for me.

D.G.


Steve,

Thanks so very much for your persuasive expertise! It's been a straightforward honest and good experience. I won't ever hesitate to give you positive recommendation.

J.H.


Dear Steve,

Best days are ahead. In spite of my previous words, I respect authority, & am indebted to your expertise, actually in awe of it. Humbly and "free." Thank you Steve.

M.C.


Dear Sam,

Thank you so much for all you and Phil have done for my son. It is deeply appreciated.

D.D.


Dear Sam,

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help. Getting me through this ordeal was something I will not forget. You and Phil are both great guys and I am very fortunate to have met you. Take care and Happy New Year.

B.P.


Hi Steve,

We wish you a lovely and serene 2012. Our kids are doing well and we always think of you as a crucial part of their recovery. One of our kids is 3 ½ years sober, co-owns a computer company and still does volunteer work. Our other kid is about 20 months sober after a number of relapses and rehab stints. However, she is happy and productive now, and is getting married soon. She goes into jails and prisons to evaluate possible new residents for the program she works for and has helped a few lifers attain parole and recovery, and helps the residents at court at parole hearings. So both our kids now have lives that until recently were unimaginable. Keep fighting the good fight, people can find their way back from the abyss.

P.R..


Hi Steve,

Thank you again for what you have done for my family and I and I really appreciate you and all of your efforts.

R.C.


Steve,

Thank you again Steve for everything you've done. I hope you enjoy your Christmas as much as I will. Thank you so much.

D.C.


Dear Mr. Cron,

I thank you for making it possible for me to get my driver's license back. May God bless all your efforts. Thank you.

M.V.


Dear Phil,

Honestly there is not a day that goes by for me that I don't think about you and I thank god that I had you as my attorney - You Saved Me !!!!! Again, I truly appreciate your time and great efforts on my behalf.

S.B.


Dear Sam,

Thank you so much for all you have done for my son. It is greatly appreciated. I can’t say it enough, THANK YOU.

D.O.


Dear Steve,

This is what sets you apart from all other attorneys I have known, worked with and associated with...your eternal optimism and the ability to see the good in all things. However minuscule that dim light might be. I truly appreciate you and that goodness that illuminates not only the court room but everywhere you go. Thanks for your insights and your wisdom. Of course all your help.

J.C.


Dear Sam,

A deep heartfelt thanks for all of your hard work helping our family with my niece’s case. Your loving and caring heart eased us during a stressful and difficult time. It was wonderful to have you and Phil’s support. Your kind, gentle and professional manner quickly put me at ease and calmed my heart when I was confused and scared. Thank you for your patience to go the extra distance and return all my calls and answer all my questions. May joy surround you.
M.T.


Dearest Phil,

Wanting to wish you a blessed and wonderful New Years! Also to especially thank you for your amazing assistance and hard work in going the “extra mile” to help my niece and our family. I cannot express how much it meant to me to be able to get a hold of you when I had questions and concerns. Your caring heart and kindness was very appreciated at a very painful and difficult time! Thank you Phil – From the bottom of my heart! Much Joy and Happiness.
M.T.


Dear Sam,

I want to thank you again for your efforts in getting this matter resolved satisfactorily in such an expedited manner. As we discussed, I now have a copy of the minute order and will keep a copy with me on my person. Thanks again for your efforts.
Sincerely,
K.E.


Hello Sam,

I understand it is not over yet, but I want you to know that I feel you're doing a good job with my son’s case and also thank you for your personal piece of advise to him. I would like you to know that aside from the business part of it I appreciate your sympathizing with my wife's and my feelings at this difficult time of our lives and helping us to get thru it in a very professionally way. I would very sincerely like to Thank you and wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on behalf of my family. See you next year.
R.B.


Mr. Cron,

Even while I was nervous as heck all throughout the trial, you gave me much needed support. You stood in front of the jury and gave a great closing statement on my behalf. And most of all, you were happy for me when I was found innocent.
A.C.


Mr. Cron,

I've been meaning to send you this for awhile now and at last I can thank you for helping me out of a tough situation. I feel so much better about myself, my future and about life and all it brings my way. I can't thank you enough for what you have done.
R.B.


Dear Steve,

I just wanted to write and thank you for helping me through a very difficult and unhappy time in my life. Probably to you, professionally, this must seem a very day to day situation. But to me, it has been a very traumatic time. Your expertise, support and "good news/bad news" communication certainly helped me through some of my darker moments. I have done a lot of thinking about my disease and my stupidity in thinking that I'm not like other alcoholics. As we discussed, things could have been a whole lot worse and in my life, as well as innocent others could have been ruined. Instead I feel I have learned a valuable lesson and intend to utilize it for the rest of my life. Once again, your help has been valuable and I thank my higher power every morning and every night for the lesson I learned and for people like you.
D.J.


Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for all your help with my recent personal injury case. You were always so professional, kind and friendly. Every step of the process, you made sure to keep me informed and always had my best interest in mind. I was so pleased that you always returned my calls promptly. And of course, I am very satisfied with the results of the settlement. I also wanted to say that your staff was always so helpful and courteous when I called your office. Overall, I am very grateful for the way I was treated by you and your staff and I am impressed with the high level of service you provided. If ever I know of someone who needs legal representation, I will not hesitate to refer them to you. I consider you not only my lawyer, but a friend. Thank you again.
M.M.


Steve,

I wanted to write you to tell you once again how grateful I am for your help. I know that I neglected to hold up to my end of the bargain three years ago. I called you unexpectedly and had no money, yet you still helped me. I have a great deal of respect for you because of that, but more so that you saw I was serious. Thank you for giving me that chance. I will make the most of it - I promise. I start my 3 month program tomorrow, plus A.A. meetings, YUCK! It could be worse, I could have gone to jail! Thank you for that option also. Within, oh, four months, I'll hopefully be a licensed driver! YES! I will call you soon in hopes I can take you to lunch/dinner, it would really feel good to do something for you. I'll be in touch. Thank you for everything!
R.B.


Steve,

How many lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb? Two. One to screw in the light bulb and one to defend the light bulb from getting screwed, in which case, call Steve Cron. I can't thank you enough.
B.T.


Dear Steve,

I want to thank you for everything you did for me on my case. Certainly the support of my friends and relatives helped, but I am convinced that your handling of the case was the major reason for the wonderful result. Needless to say, I was rather concerned that I would be taking a forced vacation. I was relieved that became unnecessary and your support and expertise obviously had a lot to do with that. Thank you so much for your help. I will be eternally grateful.
C.M.


Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for all you did on my case. Both financially and professionally, you exceeded all kindness. Thank you again.
B.N.


Steve,

You are living proof that integrity will always be the most important ingredient in the world of criminal justice.
R.S.


Steve,

Thank you for meeting me on such short notice. I really appreciate your time and guidance during this time in my life. I know everything will turn out for the best.
N.K.


Steve,

I remember with fondness, the thoughtfulness & gentleness you showed me & my worried family during a tough time this summer. God bless you tons!
K.G.


Steve,

Thanks so much for all you have done on my case. You are the consummate professional.
J.W.


Steve,

On behalf of me and my entire family, I would like to express our gratitude to you for all you have done on my case. We deeply appreciate your kindness, all your hard work, but mostly your faith.
S.S.


Steve,

We are thrilled and so grateful to you for successfully clearing our son's record and providing him with a clean start.
G.B.


Steve,

I can't think of words, which are adequate to thank you, on behalf of our son, for all your help in his case.
