About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

James grew up in a small town in North Carolina, where he learned to value hard work and commitment. He attended college at North Carolina State University, where he received degrees in Biochemistry and Zoology.  James originally planned to attend medical school, but discovered, toward the end of his college career, that he had an aptitude and a love for the law.

James attended law school at the University of Georgia, where he received his Juris Doctor in law. Because of his strong medical and science background, his first job in law was with a medical malpractice defense firm in Atlanta, Georgia. James soon learned that representing doctors and insurance companies was not a very good fit for someone who favored the individual over large corporations. Time and again James was on the side of the corporation that trampled over the individuals’ rights and found himself in conflict with his personal values.

Determined to use what he had learned from working with some of the best insurance defense lawyers in the country to help individuals rather than insurance companies, James opened his own law firm in his native state of North Carolina in 1994. Since then, James has represented thousands of injured people against insurance companies.

In 2010 James fulfilled a long-time goal by coming to Alaska and making it his home. He began assisting with commercial litigation cases, but it was not long before his preference for helping individuals over corporations compelled him to open another law firm to help injured people.

The Crowson Law Group opened its doors for the first time in 2011. Since then, hundreds of Alaskans have turned to James for help with their injury cases, and the Crowson Law Group has already acquired a reputation among insurance companies and their counsel as an able adversary.

Alaska has been good to James professionally, and personally James has quickly seized every opportunity to get the most out of his Alaskan experience. James enjoys skiing, snowmobiling and other outdoor sports. He also has coached high school football for many years. Currently, he coaches at East High School.

Excellent A++ Service!!
I was in an accident three years ago and I didn't think anything was going to come out of it. I was really worried because I have accrued almost 10,000 in medical bills that I've never expirenced before being an Alaskan Native.. James Crowson and his team did a wonderful job! I didn't have to go to court and travel as I thought I would. They were able to send me the documents via email since I moved out of Alaska. It was so effortless I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew they were doing what they're the greatest at, helping you get what you deserve. If you are hesitant to call him, don't be, you will be greatful you did.

A Grateful Client
I called James after I was involved in an accident with an industrial vehicle. I broke my femur, pelvis, heel and numerous ribs. James and his staff were very helpful every step of the way. It was a very hard time but they made everything easier. In the end, I got a big settlement. I was lucky to have James as my attorney. Without him, I could never have been so fortunate.

Attorney James helped me handling my case very well
I was 22 weeks pregnant when one car T boned me and another car hits me upfront I was injured bad and I was worried about my baby. The ambulance cab send me in the emergency room and a few days later I was back to the emergency room again as I felt very bad. Praise God, my baby girl is alive and I’m feeling better after long time recovery treatment. As I was very concerned about my baby’s health in the future after this very stressful accident and myself and plus my car was total so I lost my truck and I got a huge medical bills, too much phone calls, documents. I’m so happy when I found The Crowson Law Group because they helped me and was professional, considerate handling my case very well. Attorney James W. Crowson is very forthright about every aspect of my case. He is one of the most prepared Lawyers I have ever met, he handled my case with, what seemed to me, to be the utmost care and attention. He isn't someone that will take your case and have you wondering what is happening with your case or what he is doing. He’s busy, but that is because she is good. He and staff were absolutely professional and personable. The Crowson Law Group staff is just as prepared and driven as he is. You will not find a better Lawyer anywhere guaranteed for your car accident in Anchorage area. My case turned out better than I had hoped for. I would recommend him highly. If you need a real competent lawyer in Alaska his is my choice.

Happy customer
James was amazing when I met him. I knew I made the right choice. Alejandro worked hard for me and kept me updated consistently. I had an emergency and needed money for new tires. After finding out my final settlement, Alejandro arranged for me to pick up enough money to buy tires. I am very happy with the end result and would recommend them to friends and family.

Highly Recommend
Alejandro at Crowson Law Group was so great and easy to work with. I was new with insurance lawyers when i came to them last year after my car accident and thought it would be difficult and time consuming but i was totally wrong. Alejandro was courteous, worked quickly, diligently, and kept me informed about my case every step of the way. I have and will continue to recommended Crowson law group to friends in family.

Made all the difference in the world
I cannot recommend Crowson enough, and Brandy in particular! Last October, I was t-boned, driver's side, by a teenager blowing through a red light at an intersection. What a nightmare. Car totalled, blood on my face, tons of physical therapy and appointments ahead of me. Brandy made things easy for me when I had my hands full elsewhere. She listened, gave great advice, and I always felt like she had my back 100%. She negotiated on my behalf effectively and fairly. God willing, I will never find myself blindsided with pain and injury like I was last October again...however, if that's what is in store for me, I KNOW I will be calling Brandy at Crowson law group again!

Car accident
I was rear ended in a car accident and I called Crowson Law and Alejandro immediately helped me throughout my two surgeries I had to have. He always called to make sure I was ok. I highly recommend Crowson Law if you ever get injured in an accident they will be there for you indefinitely.

They saved me!
I went through another attorney for my personal injury accident and spent months waiting for the attorney’s lazy paralegal to get everything finalized so the offer letter could be sent out until finally I decided to go over to Crowson. Within a two week period the settlement was closed and I received my check in my bank account. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience with them! It was quick, painless, and Alejandro made sure I had all of the information I wanted and needed!

From the beginning I hired them as my attorney they made life very simple in the process of handling my claim. Alejandro was the main attorney assigned to me and he not only kept me informed of what was going on regularly but check on my well being constantly. I received a very good settlement for all the troubles and injuries I sustained due to the other driver. Great Firm!

So helpful!
My only regret is that I didn't come to them sooner. After a year of pain and stressing over doctor bills I walked into Crowson defeated. They were so helpful keeping me informed and giving me tips on how to go about the tragedy after a car accident and healing takes place. I'm so grateful that my doctor bills are paid, I'm don't believe that would have happened without Crowson.

SCARED AND HURT!
Single mom of 5T-boned! Not only am I hurt for the rest of my life. But what was I going to do? I tried so hard to work with the insurance companies, Hers ,and Mine. BOTH were difficult. Last minute, I went to Mr. Crowson. He took my case. Not only did he win, but I got enough, through the insurances to make memories now, with my grand children. This firm and its teams are AMAZING. Even the front desk people, treat you so kind, like you actually matter to them! I cant not stress enough, how important this company is to have on your side. I strongly suggest you visit them if you are ever in any kind of an accident.

Crowson Law Group is Awesome!!!
I slipped and fell on a banana in the toilet paper aisle at Fred Meyer in Wasilla. I hired James Crowson as my attorney, and he fought with Sedgewick to get me the top dollar amount for ME, as well as getting the State Medicaid paid back. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and will recommend Crowson Law Group to everyone. Thank you James!!!

Highly recommended Legal team!
Family was involved in a serious accident which led to costly medical bills that our insurance was hesitant to fully cover. After seeking help from Crowson Law Group we were able to receive medical treatment of choice for over 8 months and the Law team helped us recieve full compensation for medical and personal compensation. Highly recommend Crowson Law Group. Everyone from the Claims Specialist, Paralegal and Lawyer were more than pleasant to work with. Danny Moss was very professional and stayed in constant communication with me and my family. These guys are the real deal and truly professional. Thank you Crowson Law Group!
