Michael W. Crosson portrait


I am an attorney in solo practice, representing clients in the greater Sacramento area in family law (including divorce, child custody, visitation, child support, modifications and step-parent adoptions) bankruptcy (chapter 7 and 13) and general practice (civil) matters (wills, name changes, small claims, small business issues etc.).

I strive to provide every client with high-quality representation at a reasonable cost. I work closely with my clients to formulate intelligent strategies and find personalized, legal solutions to their problems.

I do not outsource my work to paralegals or legal secretaries and respond to all e-mail and telephone calls promptly. Last but not least, if I am your attorney, I will always give you an honest evaluation of your situation so that you can make the best decisions possible on how to proceed.

Contact me today for a low-cost initial consultation!
