  • He gave us peace of mind.
    Sometimes in life, circumstances happen to us and our loved ones that require professional help. We met with and found Joshua Crain to be that individual. He not only helped our daughter, but he gave us peace of mind. Gratitude just doesn't cover our appreciation for the persistence, kindness and genuine concern we received while getting justice for our child. From the bottom of our hearts Josh, we thank you for a job done well and beyond!

  • If I needed a response I got one in a timely manner.

    I was stopped on my way to Bonnaroo from out of state on what I thought to be shaky grounds and lied to about speeding. I also had my rights violated because of the precedent that you can't call for a drug dog to the scene of a traffic stop without reasonable suspicion.

    Mr. Crain pushed both routes of defense, as well as sought out plea bargain opportunities (diversion program, etc.) before the date. He also actively sought out evidence on my behalf such as the dashcam footage. I am very impressed with his work and the situation ended up being resolved completely with a full dismissal and expungement, in one court date (very important due to beings 9 hours away).

    Would very much recommend and would definitely rehire (although I don't plan on ever coming back to Tennessee). A little short worded, but never due to lack of work. Very reasonable due to him probably being very busy. If I needed a response I got one in a timely manner.

  • Extremely thorough throughout the process.
    Mr. Crain represented me in a child custody case. He kept in touch and was extremely thorough throughout the process. I did not have to worry whether my case was getting the attention needed and deserved. I highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney and I have referred him to several individuals already.

  • If you're looking for an attorney, look no further.
    Used Mr. Crain as an attorney recently and he was very helpful. He and his staff answered all my questions at any time of day and lead me through a difficult time until it was over and done with. I can't thank him enough. If you're looking for an attorney, look no further. Thank you, Mr. Crain.

  • Mr. Crain truly cares about people.
    Mr. Crain is an amazing attorney. He helped with my divorce. It should have been an easy divorce because my ex and I were on the same page. But, it was not. It ended up being a really frustrating nightmare. Mr. Crain never gave up and went out of his way to make sure my case was right and finished properly. The divorce is finally final. Mr. Crain truly cares about people. I do not know what I would have done without Mr. Crain and his office staff helping me through and keeping me sane. If you have anything you need an attorney for- I highly recommend Mr. Crain.

  • He has always had my best interest in mind.
    Attorney Crain has been an excellent attorney, helping me with 7 cases in the past! He has always had my best interest in mind, and has really listened to me and fought for the best outcome each time! I would highly recommend Attorney Crain to anyone looking for a good, professional, knowledgeable attorney! He seems to always have his clients best interest at heart. He has not only helped me with my legal troubles; he also helped when I was at a low point in my life, recommending not only what would be best for me legally, but also what would be best for my life! I truly appreciate Attorney Crain and all of his hard work that has gone into each and every one of my cases!

  • He was able to have my case taken care of in a timely manner.
    First I'd like to say that Mr.Crain is very professional. He took the time to answer any questions that I had and talk to me about my case. Considering that I'm on the road constantly for work, which can make it hard to get things done in itself. He took the time to work with me and the court system and was able to have my case taken care of in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Mr.Crain to anyone that is in need of legal assistance.

  • Mr. Crain is respectful and very passionate.
    Mr. Crain was there for me in my time of need! Mr. Crain took his time and put forth the effort to achieve the goals I set. Mr. Crain is respectful and very passionate. I will never consider hiring another attorney!

    - Maurice

  • His experience and knowledge were priceless.
    Like many festival-goers across the U.S., I was scared that being charged with a misdemeanor out of state would ruin my chance of ever going to another festival. My friend and I hired Josh Crain to help us better understand the potential outcomes of being charged with misdemeanor drug offenses out of the state we are from. I have never hired an attorney that I didn't know personally before, so I was scared in the beginning. Wondering if I would be paying the right amount...if I could trust a stranger with my future. 
    My friend and I were very lucky to have Mr. Crain's represent us. His services were affordable and his experience and knowledge were priceless. Could not have ended up with a better outcome---all charges dismissed and expunged due to a proven unconstitutional traffic stop. Thank you again, Josh!

    - Sonny

  • An excellent negotiator.

    Attorney Joshua T. Crain did an excellent job helping me establish a more fair parenting plan. As a non-custodial parent, I have always felt that the legal system in Murfreesboro has treated me as a lesser parent, but that stopped when I found Joshua. This is the second time he has represented me, and it's definitely not the last, should I need his service again. He is an excellent negotiator and a rainmaker for getting people to listen to reason. I highly recommend Mr. Crain for any non-custodial or custodial parent who feels they keep ending up with the short end of the stick.

  • He will help you, its not just a job to him.
    Pretty straight forward. He explained my situation and broke down the possibilities and gave me a chance to decide if that's what I wanted. He managed to give me a great deal that probably another lawyer wouldn't have thought of or probably wouldn't have tried. One thing I can say of him from my perspective is that he will help you, its not just a job to him. When we were in court he managed to get me in and out after our arrival but stayed behind for almost an hour helping my boss that speaks no English. At that moment he could've gotten taken into custody but Mr. Crain (might've had to postpone a meeting or 2) stayed behind and did his best in order for my boss to stay from being taken into custody.

    - Alejandro

  • Fair on price, great on service.
    I never write reviews ...because I am bad at them... but after JTC got all my charges retired... I won't go into tons of details but two retirements were not what I expected at all. This is the very least I can do, Very easy to talk to and gives it to you straight. Fair on price, great on service. I would recommend JTC to anyone.

    - Eric

  • Benefited me in the best way possible.
    I was wrongly accused and had my back against a wall. Mr. Crain was a Bulldog in court and made sure that it could be settled in a manner that benefited me in the best way possible. I strongly recommend him as an attorney who works hard to make sure his clients are represented as well as they can be!

  • I thank GOD for blessing me with such a great lawyer.
    Let's start off by saying that you will never meet a lawyer as great as Mr.Crain. I had a felony possession of Marijuana and paraphernalia charges. He got the Marijuana charge dropped down to a misdemeanor and the paraphernalia dismissed. I thank GOD for blessing me with such a great lawyer. He did exactly what he told me he would do and more.

  • He went above and beyond for my case.
    My experience with Joshua Crain was beyond imaginable. My first lawyer was not doing all that he could but with Mr.Crain he did everything. I could tell that he put his heart into his job and he truly cares about his clients. I appreciate every single thing he did for me and my family. I am so thankful that he was put into my life to be my lawyer. He went above and beyond for my case. He always went over what will happen in the courtroom and never left my side. Thank you.

  • A wonderful business.
    I've known Josh for 2 yrs and he has always been the most honest and professional individual I know. Crain Law is a wonderful business, and if you have any legal needs, I would strongly recommend these guys.

  • Mr. Crain definitely exceeded every expectation I had.
    I hired Joshua for criminal defense, and I couldn't have made a better decision as far as hiring an attorney goes! He worked every possible angle to get a fair outcome. Mr. Crain definitely exceeded every expectation I had. I was confident when I hired him and I have no doubt in my mind that I will rehire him if I needed to in the future!

  • He does not do anything halfway.
    Attorney Crain is a man of integrity. The most I've known. Everything he does, he fully commits to and gives his best efforts the whole way through. He does not do anything halfway. When I need help he is the type of person I want in my corner.

    - Satisfied Client

  • Thorough, straight-forward and honest.
    When my son was facing some very serious charges (in his first-and-only brush with the legal system) I was lucky enough to find Mr. Crain online. He was thorough, straight-forward and honest, and was able to work through all the issues in a clear and competent way. He was able to negotiate a very fair and favorable judgment for my son in what could have been a devastating situation.

  • Do yourself a favor, contact Mr. Crain.
    I had a very complicated case of charges wrongfully being pressed against me and Mr. Crain took the time to listen, understand, and work out the details of my case. On the day of court, Mr. Crain was able to explain the complex situation to the judge very clearly and have all charges dropped and expunged from my record! Another unnamed attorney I consulted in Murfreesboro actually advised me to turn myself and pay bond on something that I have proof I didn't do! But Mr. Crain understands the law very well and I am sure will match your honesty with very hard work and professionalism in order to help you as best as he possibly can in your case.  Do yourself a favor, contact Mr. Crain. His professional and quick services are worth every penny! Thanks, Joshua T. Crain!

  • HANDS DOWN - Joshua Crain is the best.
    I have only had to hire 3 lawyers in life, however I have had to sit in court and watch many of them work for their clients. HANDS DOWN - Joshua Crain is the best I have ever had or seen! I will never need another one since I have him. Joshua works efficiently to save you money and aggressively to accomplish your goals as his client. Thank you for being my attorney!

  • Took the time to listen to all my concerns.
    If you're looking for a good, affordable attorney with a vast knowledge of the law, you have found the one!! Mr. Crain helped me through my situation and was very reassuring. My situation was a little odd but Haleigh and Mr. Crain still remained very professional and knowledgeable of what will come. I searched for a good lawyer for a long time and I am very thankful I came across him. His assistant, Haleigh, is wonderful and took the time to listen to all my concerns. If anything ever happens to anyone I know I will definitely be recommending Mr. Crain

  • Gave me peace of mind about our situation.
    Josh Crain was very attentive to our situation that we had come up. He made sure he kept me posted on the information that we needed. We did not have to hire him for a case due to it just being a dropped case. When I spoke to him on the phone he was very kind helpful and gave me peace of mind about our situation. We definitely will recommend him to others and I know who to call if anything arises in our life!!

  • They never made me feel like they weren't our partners in this.

    We hired Mr. Crain to represent us in the termination of parental rights and an adoption case and recently completed our last day in court yesterday. A friend recommended him to us after they went through a similar situation. We went to Mr. Crain in December 2015 and asked how we go about my husband's adopting my son so that he can legally sign for him in all aspects of his care. Mr. Crain explained that we have to petition to terminate the father's rights and once granted, we can move forward with the adoption process. The father responded with an attorney and Mr. Crain gave me the option of continuing with court that day (to argue why I believe his rights should be terminated) or to give the father a final chance on record to prove himself or lack thereof. He advised me on the latter and I have to say it was hard at first but ultimately was the better decision because the father didn't even show up to the second hearing. Termination of rights was granted on the second hearing and the adoption was granted in April 2017. It was definitely a long battle but Mr. Crain and his staff did all the hard work. They were professional and courteous through the whole process (even when I relentlessly vented to them and apologized after for "taking their time", they never made me feel like they weren't our partners in this). I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Thank you again!

  • Absolutely over-delivered on the level of service I expected.
    Mr. Crain and his office did an excellent job on my case. He was honest with the entire process and handled it quickly and at a fair cost. He never missed a phone appointment or delayed my case once. Absolutely over-delivered on the level of service I expected. Would recommend to anyone needed representation in Rutherford County for criminal matters. As a former prosecutor, he understands what the process is better than anyone.

    - Joe

  • Displays true hard work and dedication.
    The best attorney I have had the privilege to work with. He helped me turned an extremely scary situation into a winning one. Mr. Crain was by far easy to talk to and very honest through my entire case helping me keep an ease of mind. I most definitely recommend Mr. Crain to anyone seeking an attorney that displays true hard work and dedication PER case!!

  • Potential jail time reduced to probation.
    Mr.Joshua Crain was very pleasing to have as my defense in my criminal case! He is very knowledgeable and insightful in regards to the law. He was easily accessible and handled all of my concerns promptly. His professionalism kept my nerves at ease throughout the case. Mr. Crain was able to get my felony charge dropped to a misdemeanor and potential jail time reduced to probation. I am very thankful for choosing Mr.Crain and his law firm to represent me in court!

    Mr. Crain and his staff were the most professional and outgoing people I have had the pleasure of working with. I was so surprised at how easy the process was on my part.

I can not praise them enough.

    - Alex

  • Exceptional, kind, and compassionate.
    I hired Mr. Crain to represent me in custody readjustment mediation. It could very well have turned into a custody battle. He was very honest with me about expectations, what the law states, and what the best course of action would be. It was a very stressful situation, but I was confident we would get the best possible outcome with him on my side of the table. He and his staff are exceptional, kind, and compassionate. I will definitely be hiring him again for any future custody needs.

    - Steve

  • We got the desired outcome we were seeking.

  • One of the best decisions that I have ever made.
    Mr. Crain helped me get a VOP, that had been outstanding for 4 years. He was extremely helpful and got the job done in a very timely manner. His staff at his office were also a huge amount of help getting me the paperwork needed to have my license reinstated. I should have hired them as soon as I got in trouble as opposed to waiting, but choosing Mr. Crain to represent me was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Words can’t express how much I appreciate it. Highly recommend.

    - Andrew

  • He will fight tooth and nail for you.
    Hired Mr. Crain after I was arrested on a false accusation. This man worked with the DA and was able to get my case retired. If you let this man work he will fight tooth and nail for you. I pray I never need him again, but if the need comes up then he'll be the first call I make. I really can't thank this guy enough.

    - Samuel

  • He and his staff always put me at ease.

    - Melody

  • Extremely communicative.

    Mr. Crain is an amazing attorney. I reached out to him regarding a case that my previous attorney had been working on for over 2 years. He did the initial consult, took the time to understand my case and what I was hoping to achieve, explained the fees upfront and laid out a clear plan on how to resolve my case in the courts. He was extremely communicative and managed my expectations. Within 3 weeks, he had my case closed and my record completely expunged. I was floored. I would highly recommend him and his team!

  • I walked away a very happy client!!

    5 stars all around! Haleigh in the front office was always so kind and willing to help every time I needed something. Mr. Crain was nothing short of AMAZING!! Throughout the entire experience, I was very pleased to have hired him as my attorney. He was informative an educational in the process and gave me all the information I needed to make my own decisions. As soon as I pointed a way, Mr. Crain went and gave it all he had. This whole experience could have been so much worse and ended up completely different but I walked away a very happy client!! I HIGHLY recommend Joshua Crain for all your legal needs!!

    - Lauren

  • The best possible outcome.
    Mr. Crain was very professional and courteous. I met with a few other attorneys in Murfreesboro before deciding to hire him as my legal counsel. He helped get me the best possible outcome with the charges I was originally brought in on! Would definitely hire him again if any other issues were to come up. His office staff was great helping me answer all my questions, and helping me in court if Mr. was not immediately available!

    - Elizabeth M.

  • Hiring Mr. Crain was the best decision I could have made.
    Joshua Crain is an amazing attorney! I was charged with a felony and my court date was quickly approaching in just a few days. I saw all of his great reviews online and called his office. After speaking with him for just a few minutes over the phone, I decided to hire him to represent me. I met with him in his office to explain the situation and walked out of the meeting with him knowing exactly what to expect. Mr. Crain not only knows the law, but he also thinks outside the box. I no longer have a felony to worry about thanks to him.. and the case is closed. Hiring Mr. Crain was the best decision I could have made. The only thing I regret is not contacting him sooner! He’s confident, professional and fights for his clients. I 100% recommend anyone that is looking for an attorney to represent them to contact Joshua Crain’s office!

  • You will be very pleased!
    Crain Law and associates went above and beyond through the entire divorce and child custody process. Mr. Crain is extremely thorough. He knows the law well, is extremely educated, and offers sound advice. He was in touch via email or phone frequently and kept me up to date with the case. He responded quickly if I ever had a question or concern. He helped me to look at things from a future standpoint and not rush things when it came to making a parenting plan or child support based on present circumstances. He helped me to see the whole picture in each area of the divorce. His assistant, Haleigh, was kind, organized, and thorough as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Crain and his associates to walk through your legal process with you. You will be very pleased! I am extremely grateful that Mr. Crain was recommended to me by a friend.

  • I would recommend Mr. Crain to anyone.
    All of the reviews on Mr. Crain drove me towards hiring him, and I was certainly not disappointed. He quickly met with me and laid out all of the options that were available to me. On the court date, he was able to successfully fight for minimal punishment. I would recommend Mr. Crain to anyone in the Murfreesboro area who has found themselves in trouble.

  • If you're in trouble, this is the guy you want.
    When no other attorney would even talk to me, Mr. Crain came to me in the courtroom, asked about my case, treated me like a human being, and handled my case better than I could have hoped for. If you're in trouble, this is the guy you want.

    - William

  • I'm truly thankful to have found him!
    I sought Joshua out for a violation of probation charge, this being my first time ever hiring a lawyer I did my research and found that he seemed to be a great fit. He has gone above and beyond for me and I'm truly thankful to have found him!

  • This Man Is Really Worth Every Penny
    I was charged with nonsense but was facing a lot of trouble..Mr. Crain took my case very seriously and was able to handle it on the first time in court. I was extremely nervous but now if I had known that he was as good as he was then I wouldn't have stressed myself to death... I would recommend him to anyone who needs a really down to earth, caring, and knowledgeable attorney I would not at least talk to him.. I presented my case to many attorneys about my situation and they basically told me that I had no chance. Mr. Crane took the time to listen and made me feel like I actually had a chance in which he was right. I just want to say thank you to everyone at the Crain office for their kindness hard work..........

  • Clients Call Him a Bulldog
    I worked with Mr. Crain as his paralegal for about a year. He taught me a lot in my tenure with his firm. I can tell you that he truly cares about each and every one of his clients. You will not find a lawyer who is as stubborn, organized, ethical, or dedicated as Mr. Crain. He is a very hard working family man.
