Law Offices of Bernard Crane
Bernard Crane graduated from George Washington University, and earned his law degree from Catholic University. He's been practicing criminal and business law in the Washington area since 1985. For over 30 years, he's zealously fought for clients accused of all types of crimes - from marijuana to murder and carjacking. There's almost nothing he's not already seen and learned to deal with, both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. He's helped thousands of people get through some of the worst times in their lives. He can help you, too.
INVESTIGATIVE BACKGROUND Before becoming an attorney, he was a private investigator, conducting investigations across the county. Prior to that, he served as a police officer, including working undercover in narcotics. He know how investigations are built, so he know where their weak spots are. He's been where the arresting officer has been, so he know what he sees. More importantly, he know what the officer misses.
TRAFFIC ALCOHOL CASES Mr. Crane has completed an in-depth advanced training course on traffic alcohol cases approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and become one of the few attorneys who have earned certification in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. This means he's been trained in exactly the same procedures the officers must use to make arrests for DWI or DUI. He can spot errors and omissions in their reports that frequently result in cases being dismissed.
BUSINESS REPRESENTATION He's advised and handled the legal needs of countless businesses, large and small, including accounting firms, restaurants, nightclubs, Information Technology vendors (hardware and software), labor services providers, and government contractors. He's guided clients all the way from the initial planning stages of their businesses to becoming major players, and helped them with federal and state government contracts, bid protests, union disputes, corporate and LLC agreements, leases, buy-sell agreements, business licensing applications, teaming agreements, and all other forms of business documentations. He treats YOUR business as if it were HIS business.
