  • Our Practicing Attorneys

    As a law firm that’s focused on helping the community, our practice has changed and evolved over its lifespan. For over a decade, Jack Cranley served as counsel to insurance companies and financial institutions, gaining valuable experience with governmental institutions, corporate law, finance law and even internet law.

    Upon starting his own practice, he focused on spurring economic growth in the community through helping people form and build businesses. Lately, however, our focus has been on the aftermath of those failed businesses and people struggling with unforeseeable circumstances. Additionally, our practice areas include everything from traffic law and estate planning to family law, bankruptcy and personal injury claims.

    Action Law Center also employs the legal experience of lawyers Tim Kalinowski and Judy K. Steele. Their years of practice bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to our firm, furthering our commitment to providing quality legal services to the local community.

  • Jack gave me great advice, and was always right, even though I had my own thoughts. He is well versed in the law, and came through for me in my case. Thanks Jack.


  • Recently had Jack as a GAL on our case between my 15 year old son and his father. Jack really cared about our situation and listened but also gave us lots of advise. Jack visited with us and talked extensively with my son, his older brother, as well as visiting and interviewing my ex-husband and his family. DFS didn't even do this when they dismissed my son's abuse allegations. The judge was surprised when Jack had recommended my son have a choice regarding his visitations with his father, but he said he said he trusted Jack's opinion and the visitation order was changed to show this. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome and appreciate him working with us.

  • Judy was great! When I first called Judy, I felt my world was turned upside down. Judy kept me completely up to date with everything in my case. Her level of expertise and confidence was phenomenal! I felt very comfortable every time after speaking with her. She was by far the best choice for me.


  • Jack was VERY upfront about any issues he thought my husband would have when he got his divorce and was helpful with many issues that came along with his ex-wife. He handled everything with great understanding and fixed a lot of issues we were going to have if my husband had not sought his advice.
