Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 18, 2008
Well known Houston personal injury attorney Jim Walker, a.k.a. Walker Texas Lawyer, has a new partner in his fight for justice for those who have suffered death and/or injuries resulting from the negligent conduct of others. Jeff Crawford is joining the Houston personal injury firm which now will be called "Walker and Crawford".
A native Houstonian, Crawford started his career working on the other side of personal injury law representing insurance companies and corporate clients. However, he quickly realized his passions and talents would be put to better use representing individuals who lack the resources and voice to fight for themselves. Since then, he has focused his practice primarily on helping individuals who have been in motor vehicle collisions, on-the-job accidents, and causes of action involving skilled nursing facilities and premises liability. Mr. Crawford also spends a considerable amount of time and resources seeking justice for those who are being taken advantage and treated unfairly by their own health insurance and automobile insurance companies.
Jeff Crawford has personally handled to conclusion approximately one thousand (1000) personal injury cases, and is eligible for board certification in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. "I believe my success may be attributed to my tenacity and my commitment and desire to become acquainted with each client on a personal level", says Crawford. "I have found that a more personal, one-on-one approach with clients who have been physically and emotionally harmed allows me to better understand their thoughts, fears, feelings, and needs."
Mr. Crawford earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University, graduating with cum laude honors in 1994. Following undergraduate studies, Mr. Crawford chose to study law at South Texas College of Law, where he earned his degree and became licensed to practice law in 1999. Crawford is a member of the State Bar of Texas and is licensed to practice in all state courts. He is also licensed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
The law firm of Walker Texas Lawyer is rated as one of the top personal injury law firms in Houston by the Houston Bar Association and was voted Houston law firm of the year for three years in a row. James Walker decided to offer Crawford a partnership in his firm because of their mutual respect for one another and commitment to the same goal. "Joining forces with Jeff made obvious sense to me" says Walker. "We both enjoy going after the bad guy, and in most cases that means battling big insurance companies. Jeff's past experience gives him a real advantage in the courtroom. He is like a son to me and I hope to one day retire and leave him the firm."
Mr. Crawford has been a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association since 2001 and has served a three-year term as a Board of Advocates Director for that organization. He has been a featured speaker on the subject of voire dire at trial lawyer conferences, and also currently holds, or has formerly held, membership with the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the Houston Trial Lawyers Association, and the Houston Bar Association. He has also satisfied the requirements for membership to The College of the State Bar of Texas.
