Russell Wilson Crumbley

About me



I worked full time and put my self through x-ray school which took 2 years. When finished, I worked full time and put myself through a degree in chemistry and bio-chemistry. When finished, I worked full time - in Huntsville, AL - and put myself through law school - in Birmingham, AL. I drove over 200 miles, round trip, every day for 3 years to complete this last effort.




I worked in the medical field for 13 years doing trauma and surgical x-rays. Additionally, I used my chemistry degree by working in the nuclear consulting industry prior to going to law school.  I have now (May 2013) worked as an attorney for 15 years.




15 years. Thousands of cases. Approximately 3000 DUI cases alone. I have tried numerous jury trials including, but not limited to assault charges, burglary, rape, DUI, drugs (including drug trafficking and possession) and murder cases.


My life has been about making things happen ... without regard to the odds or the difficulty. Experience. Knowledge. Relentlessness. This is my committment to you!

  • Larry Robert Marsili

    I endorse this lawyer. I've actually seen him have jury trials on 3 different DUI cases. Mr. Crumbley did an excellent job in all aspects--everything from striking the jury to his closing arguments were smooth, clear and personable. It is clear that he is well-familiar with the law and how it applies in the cases he handles!
