Lucas A. Cranwell
Lucas Cranwell was born and raised in Hampshire, England. His family relocated to Dayton, Ohio in 1998, and later acquired U.S. Citizenship. He now calls East Aurora home.
In 2012, he earned his undergraduate’s degree from Buffalo State College with a B.A. in Communications with honors in Public Relations. Lucas went on to earn his Juris Doctor from the University of Dayton Law School in 2017.
Throughout his college years he has been involved in many activities and organizations that would prepare him for a career in law such as his passion for student government as Class President and Executive Vice President of the Student Bar Association. He also performed a summer internship as a law clerk for the Chief Federal Judge of the Western District of New York, and was a member of the Volunteer Student Law Project and served in the civil law clinic to provide pro bono service within the Dayton community.
“To earn some money while a student at Buffalo State, my girlfriend and I joined a focus group panel as mock jurors. We were fascinated by the process and the detail that went in to each and every case. The following semester we took some pre-law classes together and were both hooked. This eventually led to us going to law school together. It was helpful while in law school that we wanted to focus our studies on personal injury. We are both now members of the William Mattar team.”
When Lucas is not advocating for clients, he enjoys spending time with his friends and family, traveling and riding motorcycles. He has definitely embraced the community spirit in Western New York as he adds, “I’m an avid Buffalo Bills fan and season ticket holder. Go Bills!”
