About Me

Attorney John Crowley has spent his entire career as a lawyer of 21-years working in the field of criminal law. In 1990, he served as a Law Clerk with the United States Department of Justice, before accepting an Assistant District Attorney’s position with the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office. As an Assistant District Attorney, Mr. Crowley was the prosecutorial voice for the State of Washington. And it was during his seven-year tenure in this position that he became well versed with the legal strategies and applications of criminal law, as they are implemented by the State of Washington. He also became very well aware of the unfairnesses of the justice system in general. Attorney Crowley was surprised to learn just how easily an accused offender could be vilified, convicted and incarcerated, based upon insufficient or circumstantial evidence – especially for those accused of sex related crimes.

    I watched John Crowley represent at trial a client that was facing a sentence of life in prison. His skills were top notch in every phase of the trial. He was both professional and passionate in the advocacy of his client, and it came through in his representation during the trial. I would wholeheartedly recommend John Crowley to someone in need of representation on any serious criminal matter.
