Russell Wilson Crumbley

About me

My life has been about making things happen ... without regard to the odds or the difficulty. Experience. Knowledge. Relentlessness. This is my commitment to you!
I worked full time and put myself 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.
18 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.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • 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!

  • Mark Timothy Hopper

    As a former prosecutor the best endorsement I can give Mr. Crumbley is that I hated to see him walking into Court. I knew that whatever case he was on I would have to be ready on. He was always prepared and fought to achieve the best outcome for his client. I highly recommend him to anyone needing representation on a DUI or any criminal case for that matter. In addition he is a man of integrity and Christian values.
