Founder at McCraw Law Group

Lin McCraw is not “just another lawyer” – far from it. He is known in the Texas legal community as being among the state’s most talented, energetic, and influential personal injury lawyers. His compassion and understanding of the financial, emotional, and physical challenges accompanying a serious injury drive him to achieve results for his clients.


Standing Up for You When You Need it Most.

Lin practices personal injury law with a purpose – his goal is to have a positive impact. He is driven to prevent the powerful from wielding their power to avoid paying fair compensation. His word is his bond. He believes that integrity is the cornerstone of all relationships, and he lives this value when interacting with those touched by his practice, including clients, employees, and the community. His natural compassion for his fellow human beings who are suffering and a desire to do the right thing to help them, are the cornerstones of how McCraw Law Group approaches client care.

Serving the Injured with Compassionate Advocacy: Lin McCraw

Lin feels blessed that he has the knowledge, ability, and resources to help others who have suffered devastating losses through no fault of their own. Perhaps his childhood — during which he powerlessly watched as he saw people being picked on, and was bullied himself, sparked a passion to stand up for victims of wrongdoing and to advocate for them, seeking justice for them at times of devastating challenges and loss.

Experience Matters, In and Out of Court.

Lin McCraw: A Lawyer Driven to Achieve Justice and Fair Compensation

When it comes to achieving justice and full compensation, Lin is personally driven to achieve a positive outcome, and failure is not an option. When facing opponents in the courtroom, he knows how to strategically present a persuasive case, giving his clients a decisive advantage. He employs legal tactics geared to achieve strategic goals step by step. 


Educator and Leading Light in the Texas Legal Community

Lin believes that personal injury attorneys are responsible for keeping lawmakers informed about pending and potential legislation and how proposed laws could impact innocent people and public safety. He fights for fairness and justice in the courthouse and the statehouse for consumers, the injured, and others who currently do not have a voice in government and the courts. 

He feels that more mature lawyers have a duty to mentor and train the next generation of attorneys to help the people they represent while staying healthy in the process. He frequently lectures on advocacy and mentors young lawyers. His goal is to advance the profession and create a legal environment where justice is tempered with mercy. 

A Commitment to Achieving a Better World, Based on Faith.

Lin operates by the code “Love the Lord with all of your heart, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.” His Christian faith informs all his actions in the legal field and his life in general, where he is known for his honesty and integrity. He takes every promise made to his clients seriously and works tirelessly to help them achieve justice and full compensation. He stakes his professional credibility on his word.

Serving the Underserved, Forgotten, and Powerless Among Us.

Lin’s clients include members of the community who need a powerful advocate with a voice. Widows, children, and undocumented workers have little power in the eyes of society and the law but may have valid cases to be brought against another party who has harmed or taken advantage of them. He seeks to understand and see things through the eyes of those he represents.

Board-Certified in Personal Injury Law

Lin McCraw, our founder, is board-certified in personal injury trial law by the state bar. Only about 5% of lawyers in Texas achieve board certification in any legal specialty. He has a long history as an officer and eventually President of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association during a legislative session. For well over a decade, he has battled the insurance industry in the Texas statehouse, assisting in crafting legislation that protects injured people from those who seek to destroy their rights. His experience allows him insight into the quirks and traps in the laws, enabling him to protect clients from falling victim to them. 

Lin’s innate ability to connect and understand allows him to ensure his clients become real, jumping out of a cold case file, living and breathing in front of juries, judges, and insurance adjusters so that these decision-makers can understand the real human losses suffered as a result of negligence or wrongdoing. To Lin, each client is more than a case to argue; it is a story to tell. He seeks to bring the story to life in the courtroom in the most compelling way.
