We don't promise you more than your case is worth, but we won't settle for less.
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.
