Maryland Criminal Attorney
Federal Defense Lawyer Representing Defendants in Baltimore, Annapolis and Throughout Maryland
A "Serious Trial Lawyer" Ready to Fight for Your Rights
If you are facing criminal charges, you are probably at one of the lowest points in your life. At the Law Offices of James E. Crawford Jr. & Associates, our job is to stand next to you in your hour of need and help you get your life back.
My name is Jim Crawford. For the past 18 years, I have defended people who have been charged with crimes in Baltimore, Catonsville, Annapolis, Bel Air and throughout every county and courtroom in Maryland. I handle every type of criminal case from shoplifting to life-changing accusations such as sex crimes and homicide. I am a serious trial lawyer.
A Long History of Success in Criminal Defense Law
My trial experience is extensive. I am in court in front of judges and juries almost every day of my working life. I have tried cases successfully in just about every state and federal courtroom in Maryland.
The experience my staff and I bring to your defense is key to a successful resolution of your case. Our Maryland criminal lawyers provide high-quality, aggressive legal services for our clients. The defense attorneys in my firm are dedicated and highly experienced trial lawyers who are trusted members of the Maryland Bar and the Federal Bar.
Criminal defense is about more than knowing the law; it's also about understanding people. Judges, prosecutors, lawyers, police and defendants all bring variables that can alter the outcome of a criminal case. When I take on a case, I look at the facts, the law as it applies to the charges, and the "human element" and how it will likely affect the case.
The result? Positive outcomes for thousands of clients, a reputation as one of Maryland's most successful criminal defense lawyers and referrals from throughout Maryland and the entire United States.
Federal and State Prosecution
If you are already charged or believe you are under investigation by a state agency such as the police or the federal government, it is extremely important that you retain the services of a highly qualified federal criminal defense attorney like me immediately. In many instances, a prosecution can be avoided or even resolved prior to arrest and or trial. The quicker we have an understanding of the facts, the easier it is to push your case to resolution.
It is also important to understand that there are major differences in the way the federal government handles a prosecution and the way many county and state prosecutors handle cases. The procedures are strikingly different and need to be handled in an entirely different method. Experience and judgment are needed to protect you or someone you know who is on the "radar" of a prosecution.
