**Helping Good People in Tough Situations Since 1992**

My name is Jim Crawford. I founded the Law Office of James E. Crawford, Jr., & Associates -- JC Law -- back in 1992 to protect Maryland's most vulnerable against a biased legal system while helping them get their lives back. As our clients' legal needs have grown, the Firm has grown with them to provide the same level of legal expertise and guidance in every aspect of Maryland law.

I and my Firm's team of family, criminal, & business lawyers understand that each case presents unique challenges and must be met with equally unique approaches. We commit to providing clients with:

+ An overall professional and positive experience;
+ Respect and compassion during often difficult times;
+ Experienced attorneys with a deep understanding of the judicial system and every aspect of Maryland law; and
+ Zealous legal representation to champion the client’s best interests in every situation.

**Criminal Defense Against Maryland State & Federal Charges**

For the past 28 years, I personally 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.

At JC Law, our job is to stand next to you in your hour of need and help you get your life back.

+ Traffic & DUI Charges
+ Sex Crimes, including Rape & Sex Offenses
+ Child Pornography Investigations & Charges
+ Federal Charges, including Bribery, Fraud, Conspiracy, Embezzlement, Identity Theft, & Perjury
+ Domestic Assault & Violent Crimes, including Murder, Aggravated Assault, Abuse, Kidnapping, & Arson
+ Juvenile Offenses & College Misconduct, including Underage Drinking, Cyberbullying, Academic Misconduct, & Minor-related Sex Offenses
+ Drugs & Weapons Charges, including Armed Robbery & Weapon Possession at School
+ Court System Matters, including Warrants, Bail Hearings, Probation Violations, & Expungements

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

**Domestic & Family Legal Services for Maryland Families**

At JC Law, we help Maryland families form the best futures for themselves and their children through the legal system. We will stand with you through it all, doing whatever is necessary to make sure your case closes with a happy ending – and a bright new beginning.
