"When I first moved to Connecticut from New York in 2012 I didn’t have any friends in the state. I only knew my husband, his family and the attorneys at the new firm I was going to be working at. I joined Crawford and can honestly say I met many like-minded people who have become my personal friends. In addition, I have been provided with networking opportunities directly through people I met at Crawford. The annual family day has become one of the highlights of my summer! At Crawford I was welcomed with open arms and am truly thankful that I joined.”

"I first became acquainted with Crawford in law school when I won the essay scholarship, which was much needed. The association continues to be a great resource as I grow my business law practice. I appreciate the communications and networking events that Crawford puts out and I look forward to how Crawford will continue to impact my career and the community.”

Christine Jean-Louis, Former Crawford President and Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut

"Crawford was a crucial factor in creating a much needed foundation for me in my professional development during and after law school. I have been honored to selflessly give to such a hardworking organization, and look forward to its future growth in Connecticut."
