I true jurist. Listens to everyone then uses common sense to reach fair and equitable results. Couldn't ask for a better judge.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: FL7653
Poor temperament to be a judge hearing cases. Rude to parties and counsel, never on time, flippant toward the facts. Judge Crawford gives a bad image to the 18th Circuit Bench. There have to be better options to sit on the bench and hear cases. He seems to have a bias or axe to grind and too much of a crusade to rectify whatever injustices he seems to have experienced in his own personal life.


Comment #: FL6535
If your a felon/defendant it's your lucky day as the reviews you see are by Defense parties, if your a victim wishing he holds them accountable by them continuing to violate their probation/the law...sorry. He only gives them more probation/community control after repeated actions showing their a threat to society. When you have the Probation officer writing a letter to you 5 different times saying the offender needs to have his bond revoked and spend time in prison because he is a danger to society...and ignore it...your doing a disservice to them and the people that elected you...those that still have their voting rights.

An honorable man, demonstrates integrity, fairness, and willing to hear all parties, all points of view. Does not engage in court room drama or attempt to make himself bigger, larger, or more important than he needs. I respect him immensely.


Comment #: FL1904
He shows leadership and distinction among the youth of today. He is patient and low keyed and willing to help the youth of today understand the process of our legal process.
