About Jimmy D. Crawford

Attorney Biography

Jimmy has practiced in Florida since 1994, and concentrates his practice in governmental law, land development, real estate, bankruptcy and related litigation. He and his partners opened Crawford, Modica and Holt in 2018 and moved into their historic downtown Clermont, Florida location. Finding success in their new collaborative firm, they opened a second location in the Lake County seat of Tavares, FL in 2019.

Jimmy has served as Board Attorney for Lake-Sumter State College and for the Lake County Water Authority, as well as serving as Town Attorney for the Town of Montverde. He has had the honor of representing many of Lake County’s premier development projects of the past two decades of economic growth. His past clients read like a Who’s Who of the Florida development world, including Pringle Development, Lennar Homes, Home Depot, DeWitt Excavating, The Ginn Company, Montverde Academy and the City of Saint Augustine. He has won major sanctions against banks and creditors for abuse of the bankruptcy and foreclosure processes, including a sanction award of over $200,000.

If you have a legal issue that you can “kick dirt on”, then its most likely a problem that Jimmy can handle.
