A Long History of Success in Baltimore

The legal experience the Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates brings to your criminal defense is key to a successful resolution. Our Baltimore criminal defense lawyer provides high quality, aggressive legal services for our clients. Our dedicated and highly experienced trial lawyer is a trusted member of the Maryland Bar and the Federal Bar.

Criminal defense is about more than just simply knowing the law; it is also about understanding people, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, police, and defendants. A good criminal defense lawyer understands that these variations can alter the outcome of a case. When our law firm takes on a case, we look at the facts, the law as it applies to the charges, and how the human element will likely affect the outcome.

We Handle Federal & State Cases

If you or a loved one has been charged or believe that you are under investigation by a state or federal agency, it is extremely important that you retain the services of a highly qualified Baltimore criminal defense attorney. In many instances, a prosecution can be avoided or even resolved prior to arrest or trial. The quicker we have an understanding of the facts, the easier it is to push the case to resolution.

There are major differences in the way the federal government handles a case and the way many county and state prosecutors handle cases. The procedures are strikingly different and need to be handled in an entirely different manner. Experience and judgment are needed to protect you from the prosecution. The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates has been successful on many levels handling criminal defense cases in both federal and state courts.
