Client Reviews

As someone who had never dealt with legal representation, it was imperative for me to feel confident in my attorney. From our initial conversation, I could sense Craig’s authenticity, and he was immediately able to gain my trust. Not only did Craig provide me with the reassurance I needed, he was also very transparent along the way. He made it simple for me to navigate through, and understand, the processes. I am thankful I chose Craig for legal counsel and I would, undoubtedly, recommend Craig to others.

Attorney Craig Hein was hired last year to handle a matter for our family member. His effort, dedication and attention into that case proved that he is an excellent lawyer. We were so impressed by his high quality of service that we hired him again this year to handle another matter and he exceeded every expectation possible. If you read the reviews on Attorney Hein you will have no regrets to retain him. My family and I are extremely grateful for the services he provided. I normally will not post a review, but because the level of service he provided, I feel that it would be in the best interest of the public to know if they are looking for a reputable, competent and professional lawyer you need to look no further than Attorney Craig Hein!

I highly recommend attorney Craig Hein. I was referred to Craig through a friend regarding a serious legal matter. Like many, I was new to the legal system and had absolutely no idea of what to expect. Craig immediately put the matter into perspective and reassured me that he could reach a favorable outcome. He did exactly that. Not only did he get the case dismissed, but also managed to get the record expunged. Craig’s frequent updates and availability did much to calm me throughout this experience. Should you find yourself in a legal jam, Craig Hein should be the first person you call. Solid representation.

I am a Florida resident and required legal counsel in Rhode Island. I was referred to Craig by a long time, trusted friend. I made initial contact with Craig and from the first conversation knew I had the right guy for the job. Craig was able to explain the whole process to me in terms that I could easily understand, gave me realistic expectations ( of which he exceeded) and was in contact with me on a regular basis offering updates. The end results were better than I could have hoped for and I feel that I was represented by the best.

I highly recommend Craig. He is highly professional, prompt and understanding. He is exactly what you look for in a lawyer. He does a great job of easing your state of mind and helping you through the situation while his advice is second to none. He is very aware of the law and knows how to handle any situation. He was always reachable and i never felt like i was bothering him with any questions I had. He exceeded my expectations as well as the outcome of my situation. If anyone in my family had a legal situation to handle i would recommend them to Craig!

Craig is knowledgeable, professional, thorough and comforting to work with. He made sure I understood all of the different processes involved with my legal situation and accompanied me every step of the way. He is very responsive to texts or calls and follows through with whatever it is that he says he will do. I would/will recommend him to anyone I know in the future.

Exceeding expectations and attention to detail is only the start to describe Craig! He handled my case in a way that made me feel at ease and calm considering the circumstances. Most of all he shows compassion that I would have never expected. I would highly recommend him!

Very pleased with Craig Hein Law. Craig is very helpful, knowledgeable, and honest. He responds quickly and even researched and gave me recommendations for firms in other area's of law and then followed up a few days later to make sure he pointed me in the right direction. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone needing legal assistance, even if it's just for advice.
