I know that for a fact Mr. Crawford is one of the best attorneys I have ever come across. My son was wrongly convicted and sentenced to 15 years. Mr. Crawford got him out. He did a great job and went beyond the call of duty. I am forever grateful."

Son was Wrongfully Convicted

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!"
