Who We Are
Guiding Principals

Individuals and businesses must have effective legal counsel for reliable advice, to protect their rights, and to aggressively litigate their matters before judges, juries and arbitrators. Whether you need an attorney to advise you on how best to avoid legal difficulties, or to confront a legal problem that has already arisen, there is no substitute for a skilled advocate who understands the law and how to apply the facts of your case.

The attorneys at CRANER, SATKIN, SCHEER & SCHWARTZ have successfully represented individuals and corporate clients since the firm was founded in 1959 by John A. Craner. Mr. Craner followed his vision of establishing a practice that provides superior legal representation with passion and individual attention to his clients. Through regular client communication, uncompromising study of each case file, and zealous representation in court, he quickly established himself as a champion of both management and labor unions. His practice grew rapidly, and the firm began representing individuals and businesses in a wide variety of practice areas.

Our firm has continued to grow to now include twenty-two full time employees, including professional and support staff. Many of the firm’s clients are now second and third generation, and our firm continues to develop its practice in large part on the referrals of its existing client base. Building trusting relationships remains one of our firm’s primary goals. Our firm now represents hundreds of corporations and individuals in the following areas:
