Great experience with David Crum
I hired David Crum for what I thought was going to be a very nasty divorce because he has a reputation for being a hard hitting, aggressive attorney. I was surprised that David came into the case with a complete problem solving approach. He took the wind out of my husband’s sails and got the case quickly into a settlement facilitation. In less than 6 months we resolved the case with an agreement that was best for us and for our kids. Thank you David!
I never thought an attorney would go to the bat for me like David did. I am very thankful.
I was looking for a lawyer who would do a reasonably-priced, fast, professional uncontested divorce that included child support and custody arrangements, and New Mexico Legal Group was a great choice for that. It cost ~$2,000, and was done within 4 weeks. David did a great job – from the 1-on-1 consultation where the terms of the divorce were customized for our situation to timely handling of the paperwork and filing of the divorce. I would recommend them to anyone looking for legal counsel for a similar sort of situation.
This is a RockStar Attorney!
Mr. Crum did such a fantastic job with my case. I can’t really do him “justice” in a short review. He was extremely professional, brilliant, sharp, quick, and totally on top of his game….. and on top of the case. If you absolutely, positively NEED it done right, I personally wouldn’t trust anyone BUT David Crum. You are in great hands. Oh yeah, and on top of it all, he’s a real stand up guy! Not only WOULD I recommend him, I am constantly giving his number to people.
David Crum is the BEST lawyer in the business! He worked so hard for us. He earns every penny he is paid. His legal advice, legal knowledge, and work ethic was superb. I would recommend him and NM Legal group in heartbeat.
Without a doubt, David Crum’s attention to detail and creative problem-solving helped get my family through this divorce. I was expecting it to take a year or more, but with David’s guidance, we resolved everything in under six months. Call David if you’re looking for a smart, empathetic expert in family law.
Amazing team work and Representation

Fair, Skilled, and Ethical!!
“David Crum and his office staff were simply a superb support for me during a very difficult time. David’s skill and expertise in the area of DWI defense was overwhelmingly evident in the courtroom, and resulted in my case being dismissed. David had a clear and confident manner and legal expertise that was impressive and solid. I would recommend him to anyone who is in search of a lawyer who is fair, skilled, and ethical. Many thanks for this experience.
