Persistence for Justice Since 1985
For over 30 years, Dennis has persistently worked in the pursuit of justice for his clients. Dennis was hired in 1987 by his friend and mentor, the late L. Carl Maxey, Eastern Washington’s first African American attorney and celebrated civil rights leader, from whom he received the “D.C.” moniker.
Believing access to justice is more than a notion, in 2003 Dennis founded The Law Office of D.C. Cronin emphasizing domestic relations and appellate law, criminal defense, equal rights, and peer consultation. The responsibility of carrying on the commitment and dedication in pursuit of equal rights is the hallmark of The Law Office of D.C. Cronin and impacts Dennis’ decisions both personally and professionally. Over the course of thirty years, Dennis has worked persistently to disassemble barriers to the access of justice.
Dennis’ passion for equal justice is demonstrated by his comprehensive study of the law and his determination to have the law applied fairly to all, regardless of resources. Dennis earned Martindale-Hubbell’s Judicial Edition AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rating, the highest possible in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards.
“The practice of law is a profession in which lawyers serve justice, it is not a business to pave a road of financial excess.”
