    • I do not recommend James Crawford.
    • I hired James 1-6 months ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I totally agree with the review below. I only hired this law office and payed thousands of dollars out of pocket because a serious trial attorney was needed for serious criminal charges. During the consultation, Mr. Crawford ensured that he will make this thing go away but then he passed this case to an inexperienced lawyer in his firm. I politely asked several times if Mr. Crawford could take this case but the management was not responsive at all. Also, the attorney gave wrong advice at trial. I had trust in Mr. Crawford but my experience at this law office was not very pleasant. All they care about is your money. You are better off hiring a public defender.

    • I do not recommend James Crawford.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I've dealt with several lawyers, and will not recommend Mr. Crawford. I hired him and he passed my case off to a new lawyer who passed the bar months ago, who didn't have anywhere near as much experience as Mr. Crawford himself. With the high stakes of a criminal trial, I wanted an experienced lawyer so I was very disappointed when I got the opposite of that. If you hire him, make sure you have it in writing that he will not pass the case off, especially to someone with less than a year of experience.

    • I recommend James Crawford.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I wrote this on another site saying that Crawford is an excellent lawyer. He took care of my nephew a while back. He and his other lawyers worked on the case and fixed it for him. I would definitely use him again! You can call his office anytime and someone is always there.

    I use James Crawford on a violation of probation. I was guilty, i caught a new charge while on probation, and was found guilty.(didnt use crawford on that case) And when my P.O. Found out she wrote my judge an had me violated. The judge put a warrent out for my arrest and held me with out bail cause of the prison time i was backing up. Well one day after i was aressted my wife went right to Crawfords office. Right away he filed a motion to get me a bail review, and argue the "No Bail Status". Well at my bail review he was able to argue to the court and get me released on my on recog, So at my VOP trial he argued the case (and remember i was guilty) and had Everything, Dismissed!!! Yup Thrown out, He walked me in the court room, and he walked me out! If you or any one you know have a court date use James Crawford Jr,

    Mr. Crawford asked if I would write a review of him and his office based upon what happened with me about a year ago. I was charged with a serious crime (assault) and the whole thing was a lie. Everybody thought I was guilty and Mr. Crawford convinced the Prosecuting attorney that it never happened. The case was dismissed!
