For almost 25 years, attorney James M. Crawford has successfully argued for the freedom of a wide variety of drug crime defendant clients. His demonstrated proficiency at the investigation, negotiation and litigation phases of the legal process is well-known throughout the region.

05

Murder or manslaughter charges are among the most serious criminal charges a person can face.

In these cases, your freedom is on the line. The lawyer you hire can have a significant effect on the outcome.

Appeals can be generated for a variety of reasons. Clients who are discouraged by a prior trial outcome may find out that they received inadequate or incompetent representation. Judicial error may have played a role. New evidence may have come to light that supports a defendant’s claims of innocence.

Under federal law and rules of the Constitution of California, any person who believes he or she is wrongfully imprisoned or otherwise detained can petition to challenge their imprisonment. Depending upon the situation, this may be done through an appeal of a conviction, a writ of habeas corpus or a wrongful imprisonment civil lawsuit.
