About John Rodney Crowley
Attorney John Crowley has spent his entire career as a lawyer of 21-years working in the field of criminal law. In 1990, he served as a Law Clerk with the United States Department of Justice, before accepting an Assistant District Attorney's position with the Snohomish County Prosecutor's Office. As an Assistant District Attorney, Mr. Crowley was the prosecutorial voice for the State of Washington. And it was during his seven-year tenure in this position that he became well versed with the legal strategies and applications of criminal law, as they are implemented by the State of Washington. He also became very well aware of the unfairnesses of the justice system in general. Attorney Crowley was surprised to learn just how easily an accused offender could be vilified, convicted and incarcerated, based upon insufficient or circumstantial evidence especially for those accused of sex related crimes.

It was following this realization that Mr. Crowley decided to leave his position with the prosecutor's office and put his knowledge to use as a felony criminal defense attorney. The last 14 years have found Attorney John Crowley providing aggressive and winning defense representation for those accused of some of the most serious felony offenses. He has never shied away from high profile, high stakes cases, and he has successfully fought for clients, whose verdicts would have otherwise been predetermined, if left to the court of public opinion.

Esteemed among his colleagues and respected by his peers, Attorney John Crowley has served as a lecturer at Portland State University and appeared on national television due to his work on cases involving homicide, robbery and kidnappings that had captured nationwide attention.

John Crowley is experienced, aggressive and dedicated not only because it's his job, but because he is passionate about the law and the pursuit of real justice.
