About James Ernest Crawford Jr

Attorney Biography

Maryland Criminal Defense Lawyer

Representing Defendants in Baltimore, Bel Air, Annapolis, and through-out Maryland.

At 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 23 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.

My trial experience is extensive. I am in court in front of judges and juries almost every day of my working life. 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.

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 lawyer like me immediately. The quicker we have an understanding of the facts, the easier it is to push your case to resolution.

The procedures are strikingly different when it comes to handling certain cases. Some of our clients have been charged with:

Federal and State sex offenses Federal and state drug Possession, distribution and trafficking offenses Homicide Probation and parole violations Domestic violence Possession of drug paraphernalia: In Maryland, possessing items such as pipes, rolling paper, clips or even baggies can result in drug paraphernalia charges. Computer crimes: Including possession and distribution of child pornography, chat room offenses, computer tampering, identity theft, piracy and file-sharing, and copyright infringement White collar crimes:Including mortgage and other types of fraud, tax evasion, and theft by deception Theft and robbery Crimes: Including shoplifting, larceny, robbery and burglary DWI/DUI and traffic violations: Including drunk driving, driver's license suspension, and traffic violations Weapons and violent crimes: Including assault and battery, weapons charges, carjacking, arson, manslaughter and homicide Juvenile cases: Including underage drinking and other charges faced by people under the age of 18
