“Thank you, Dr. Cranberg, for your role in my client’s acquittal of all charges.  Your meticulous review of evidence, thoughtful consultation, and compelling testimony were very effective and contributed to the fact that the jury was out for only an hour and 15 minutes.”

Sandra Odiaga, Esq.
Committee for Public Counsel Services
(the public-defender agency of Massachusetts)
Phoenix, AZ

“I found Dr. Cranberg to be very thorough, resourceful, and exceedingly well prepared. He was very precise at his deposition and stood up well against a very seasoned lawyer. He knew the medical records better than either the defense lawyer or I did. The case settled; so I cannot tell you how he did before a jury, but I had complete confidence that he would have presented well. He was very easy to work with and was very accessible. He bills fairly. I would not hesitate to use him again.”

Charles J. Muchmore, Esq.
Burch & Cracchiolo, PA

Warwick, RI

“The case went to mediation today, and we were able to settle the case.  Based on your review of the documents and our conversation, we were able to get the plaintiffs to reduce their demand by $2 million.  Thank you very much for your help on this case.”
