Best appellate lawyer in California
We were referred to James Crawford to file my appeals by attorney Lorrie Walton. After my trial I ended up spending 18 years in prison for a murder I didn’t commit. If it wasn’t for him I’d still be in prison. Me. Crawford fought hard to get me out!

Excellent lawyer
Do not feel I could have found a better lawyer in California. Jim worked hard and got Felony DUI charges for DUI on Prescription Drugs reduced to an infraction. Other lawyers commented in court that they were astounded with what he did. PI he had me hire was Fred Krasko. Ex cop and ex DEA Agent, retired from both. Jim stacked the experts and the DA in Riverside realized he would spend a ton to go to court. I was willing to do so, but the DA offered me the infraction of running a red light, all other charges dropped. $205 was my fine.

Best Lawyer for Appeals in Orange County!
I was wrongfully convicted of a violent felony. In total despair, I had given up all hope. Then my cousin told me about James M. Crawford. He helped me file an appeal and won the case! He saved my hide. This guy is something else in the court room. He stood his ground and fought for me. He really cared, and now I'm a free man - rightfully so. Thank you Mr. Crawford!
