  • I was pleased with the outcome. Thank you J. Crawford for your services.

    “James Crawfords’ associate was my lawyer at court and said he would do all the talking. When he was finished all the judge said was : Thank you sir for your service, PBJ , Fine and court cost was lower than the cost of the ticket alone. I was pleased with the outcome. Thank you J. Crawford for your services.”

  • If I ever need another attorney- he would be the first one that I would call.

    “Mr Crawford represented me a few months ago. I had managed to get myself in some pretty serious trouble and he seemed like the best choice for the type of charges that I had. The disposition of the case was really much better than I, or my family, could have reasonably expected. I did everything that he asked me to do and I let him do his job. I am extremely grateful for the service that he provided.”

  • AMAZING WORK WITH A TIME SENSITIVE MATTER!

    “A week ago, my fiancé and I decided to get married. We had been holding off for a while due to my military service/law enforcement career and my fiancé attending nursing school. I looked up local law offices in the area that could assist with drafting a premarital agreement. After reading many reviews, I felt this law group was for me. I gave them a call on Friday where I consulted with Zack Groves and Mark Lompke and was scheduled for a meeting that following Monday. I expressed that I had been dragging my feet in regards to drafting a premarital agreement and needed their time and attention to this sensitive matter since I was getting married that Friday. I walked into the Law Offices of James Crawford and was greeted by great staff and waited no longer than 10 minutes before being taken upstairs to meet Zack Groves. Little did I know, Zack is the head of the domestic law portion of the firm. Zack was sincere and understood the time constraints and promised a solid delivery ahead of schedule. That Wednesday, I received a draft and was advised to read/review for approval. After approval, it was left to me to take care of the rest. That being said, I am now married with a premarital agreement. Zack also adjusted price based on a phone consultation qoute which was extremely helpful and considerate. I would recommend this law group over and over again and will definitely use them in the future!”

    “The Crawford Law firm have excellent attorneys , with your best interest in mind. They are caring and serve their clients with a high end approach. My family needed a family lawyer at the last minute because another lawyer we hired was too busy to represent us on our court date.The lawyer literally said sorry hope you can find a lawyer.The Crawford Law firm took our case at the last minute and represented us with dignity. The Crawford Law firm made us feel confident in their representation and the outcome of our trial. We are really thankful for his close and personal representation.”

  • Divorce? See Zackary Groves

    “My situation was life changing. Divorce. It was a period of severe confusion, emotional distress, and dire financial straits. I had interviewed with several local attorneys who played on those emotions and wanted to go on the attack. I knew in my own mind that everything you argue is going to come at a severe cost financially and with two children to care for it was not an option. You've heard the old saying, "chose your battles well". When I met with Zackary Groves, he did just that. He allowed me to give him what was my situation then gave me options - not aggressive, destructive legal maneuvers that would have only destroyed the remnants of my family that remained. Unlike other attorneys I had talked to, Zackary did not prey on my upset and fire me up to fight over everything, instead, he gave legal advice that was simple to understand, a plan of action, and updated as progress was made and with the new tax laws on alimony, it was even more advantageous to get the advice. Every divorce is different and friends do not provide the greatest advice. Before you take that leap, see Zackary, give him a chance to listen and get sound advice because if there is one thing you can't afford in any divorce is - bankruptcy. Especially when you still have others that you have to care for.”

  • He walked me in the court room, and he walked me out!

    “I use James Crawford on a violation of probation. I was guilty, I caught a new charge while on probation, and was found guilty.(didn't use Crawford in that case) And when my P.O. Found out she wrote my judge an had me violated. The judge put a warrant out for my arrest and held me without bail cause of the prison time I was backing up. Well, one day after I was arrested my wife went right to Crawford's office. Right away he filed a motion to get me a bail review, and argue the “No Bail Status”. Well at my bail review he was able to argue to the court and get me released, So at my VOP trial he argued the case (and remember I was guilty) and had Everything, Dismissed!!! Yup Thrown out, He walked me in the courtroom, and he walked me out! If you or anyone you know have a court date use James Crawford Jr,”

  • There is nobody I would trust with my liberty and reputation more than James Crawford Jr.

    “I was assaulted in the 2nd degree. The defendant counter-charged me with the same, hoping I would drop the case. Instead it reinforced my determination to see it through. James Crawford showed the state that the charge was groundless, and they dropped it a full week before the trial date. He’s better and even more thorough than that, but you need to see for yourself. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but there is nobody I would trust with my liberty and reputation more than James Crawford Jr.”

  • Shirley Grey

    “Hello My name is Benjamin, I really wanted to tell who ever is searching for a Law Firm to defend them, that not only was my case won as promised by Jeff Griffith, but I needed to just share how really special receptionist Shirley Grey was to me, not only on the phone but in person. I traveled an hour to get to their office and was greeted with the warmest smile and was offered something to drink or snack on while waiting to be seen. Shirley's kindness was very much appreciated and meant a lot to me in my troubled times; not only troubled but I was and still am recovering from a major back surgery, so being treated so special made a difficult time a bit easier. Shirley Grey is such a wonderful and special person, who I feel plays a great part in making that trip to see an attorney for a problem more comforting and confident that you had made the right choice and will be headed in the right direction. I highly recommend the Firm.”

  • What a professional, caring, and easy to speak to man.

    “What a professional., caring, and easy to speak to man. I was facing some serious charges. Every single day for three months that was all I had on my mind and its especially hard when you feel as though you didn’t commit a crime. Then one day three months later Mr. Crawford gave me a call the night before court and told me he already had it all worked out just be at the courthouse so I could sign a couple papers and then be on my way. I was in a state of shock my wife and I pulled over on the side of the road when I answered the call and when he told me this I just sat there for minute and thought it’s really over .Sometimes when it seems that lawyers aren’t doing much they’re working harder than what we realize and it’s a trying time in our life but we need to be patient and him and his staff did an awesome job from the day my wife and I visited and hired him. Thank You Mr. Crawford and your staff for everything”

  • You can call his office anytime and someone is always there.

    “I wrote this on another site saying that Crawford is an excellent lawyer. He took care of my nephew a while back. He and his other lawyers worked on the case and fixed it for him. I would definitely use him again! You can call his office anytime and someone is always there.”

  • The Most Professional and Caring Lawyer!

    “Mr. Crawford asked if I would write a review of him and his office based upon what happened with me about a year ago. I was charged with a serious crime (assault) and the whole thing was a lie. Everybody thought I was guilty and Mr. Crawford convinced the Prosecuting attorney that it never happened. The case was dismissed!”

  • They not only got it done but the result was fantastic!

    “I had a very bad situation and I thought I was going to jail. The case was complex and not many lawyers understand that my situation. They not only got it done but the result was fantastic! Hats off to Jim and his team. Thank you! ”

    Thomas

  • A Great attorney!

    “I have been following Jim and his career for quite sometime now. He handled a criminal case for a family member several years ago and his office did a fantastic job. Some of the work he does is very high profile such as the Razinski case now going on in Annapolis Maryland. But his office also handles routine criminal matters and you cant ask for a better lawyer. Use him-you wont regret it!!”

    Former Client

  • I feel that this lawyer takes a personal interest in his clients and definitely is a superlawyer.

    “About nine months ago I hired Mr. James Crawford to represent me for a very serious court case. I was charged with DUI 3rd., subsequent offender, and several other serious traffic citations. I was scared ,and worried sick. I searched lawyer websites for days. Something about Mr Crawford’s picture, looked like a wise, professional man.,that I could talk to in a down to earth kind of way. I was facing some serious prison time. Well, when I met Jim ,I was shaking like a leaf.,but his calming voice and vast knowledge of DUI law gave me some hope and peace. ( I later learned this man has handled thousand’s of DUI cases ) he said it was serious and with my record he would need ammunition to fight with. Thank god he suggested rehab for alcoholism ,and A A .,it helped me in court,most importantly ,alcohol Is out of my life forever.thanks to Mr Crawford’s experience and advice ,i walked out of the courtroom with 8 days. Jail time., instead of eighteen months. I feel that this lawyer takes a personal interest in his clients and definitely is a Superlawyer. Five stars all the way.”

    “I have been a client with this firm for 8 years now. They represented me and my family in a number of issues. You couldn't ask for better because they are the BEST! The reception you receive from the minute you walk through the door makes you feel so welcome. Always greeted with a smile. Zack Groves Is the attorney I have worked with the most and his compassion he has for his clients really touches my heart. I would like to add that all of the staff I have had to work with have been so kind. Beth in the billing department if so friendly if feels like we have be friends forever. Over all this firm is 200% AWESOME!! Thank you for always being there for me and my family :)”

    Patty Wise

  • Best Lawyer in Maryland!

    “I just had Jim represent my son for a really serious criminal situation that he was completely innocent of. Everyone else thought he was guilty and we went to Crawford’s office. He was the only one that believed in my son. After going through the process with the state’s attorney Jim was able to get the case dismissed. I don’t know how he did it but he saved my sons life. My wife and I will be eternally grateful. When I saw Jim on the news the other day where he was representing that kid from Crofton and I saw this ad pop us I felt like I owed it to him to tell everyone about how good he is.”
