My name is Jim Crawford.
For the past 18 years, I have defended people who have been charged
with crimes in Baltimore, Catonsville, Annapolis, Bel Air and throughout
every county and courtroom in Maryland. I handle every type of criminal
case from shoplifting to life-changing accusations such as sex crimes and homicide. I am a serious trial lawyer.
A Long History of Success in Criminal Defense Law
trial experience is extensive. I am in court in front of judges and
juries almost every day of my working life. I have tried cases
successfully in just about every state and federal courtroom in
The experience my staff and I bring to your defense is
key to a successful resolution of your case. We provide high-quality,
aggressive legal services for our clients. The lawyers in my firm are
dedicated and highly experienced trial lawyers who are trusted members
of the Maryland Bar and the Federal Bar.
Criminal defense is about
more than knowing the law; it's also about understanding people.
Judges, prosecutors, lawyers, police and defendants all bring variables
that can alter the outcome of a criminal case. When I take on a case, I
look at the facts, the law as it applies to the charges, and the "human
element" and how it will likely affect the case.
Positive outcomes for thousands of clients, a reputation as one of
Maryland's most successful criminal defense lawyers and referrals from
throughout Maryland and the entire United States.
Federal and State Prosecution
you are already charged or believe you are under investigation by a
state agency such as the police or the federal government, it is
extremely important that you retain the services of a highly qualified
lawyer like me immediately. In many instances, a prosecution can be
avoided or even resolved prior to arrest and or trial. The quicker we
have an understanding of the facts, the easier it is to push your case
It is also important to understand that there are
major differences in the way the federal government handles a
prosecution and the way many county and state prosecutors handle cases.
The procedures are strikingly different and need to be handled in an
entirely different method. Experience and judgment are needed to protect
you or someone you know who is on the "radar" of a prosecution.
