Attorney Jason L. Crawford

25 Years of Legal Experience

Attorney Jason L. Crawford

Jason has been practicing law since May of 1993, when he graduated third in his class from the University of Georgia, School of Law. Since he graduated from law school, Jason has successfully represented hundreds of clients, including victims of:

  • Automobile design defects
  • Consumer, lender, and insurance fraud
  • Trucking negligence
  • Impaired commercial and private drivers
  • Roadway design and construction defects
  • Faulty playground equipment
  • Defectively designed industrial and agricultural equipment

he has also represented small business owners in venture capital and other business disputes.

Recovering $100+ Million in Settlements

Mr. Crawford has been appointed lead counsel in a multi-state class action lawsuit that was certified as a class adversarially in the Georgia state court system. Mr. Crawford was also one of the primary lawyers involved in the successful, nationwide class action settlement reached in federal district court in the case of McBride v. Life of Virginia d/b/a GE Life. The McBride case involved universal life insurance policies. The company claimed the right to increase the premium payments of its policyholders, many times even after the policyholder had paid on the policy for many years. The settlement made over $150 million in relief available to the policyholders.

Mr. Crawford has successfully prosecuted cases against numerous corporations, including:

  • GM
  • Ford
  • Chrysler
  • Toyota
  • Honda
  • Mitsubishi
  • Asplundh
  • Altech
  • DOT

Some of the types of defects involved were fuel system design (gas tank location, fuel lines), door latch strength, instability and unreasonably high rollover likelihood, roof strength, seatback strength, and cable strength in aerial lifts.

All of the partners at Crawford & Brown Law Firm LLP began their trial practice and litigation careers at a nationally recognized law firm. Jason worked at that firm for almost 13 years. He made partner there in 2000 and became a name-partner in 2004. Mr. Crawford owes much of his success and training to his time at his previous firm.

Along with Pete Daughtery and Dustin Brown, Mr. Crawford founded DC&B in March of 2006. The partners enjoyed practicing with each other and wanted the increased flexibility that comes with a smaller law firm. Crawford & Brown Law Firm LLP still represent the same types of clients in the same types of cases as when they were at their original firm.

Outside The Courtroom

Mr. Crawford has held many leadership positions in the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. He has authored or co-authored more than a dozen law review articles. He is a member of the Board of Directors at the Gardens at Calvary, a retirement community in Columbus, and for more than a decade, he coached the Columbus High School Mock Trial team.

In addition, Jason loves spending time with his wife, Sara, and his children, Jordan, Madison, Hunter, and Olivia.
