Attorney William J. Crowley

Attorney William J. Crowley has represented the people of the greater Boston area in personal injury matters for over 35 years. He works exclusively on personal injury cases and has become an expert in niche areas of legal study like:

  • Medicare liens
  • Traumatic brain injury cases
  • Injuries under federal or state tort claim laws

He also has decades of experience with common personal injury cases like:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall cases
  • Dog bites
  • Workers’ comp claims

Attorney Crowley graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in 1970 with his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. After a few years, he enrolled in Suffolk Law School to pursue his Juris Doctor. In 1977 he graduated from Suffolk and began practicing law. He became a partner at Schlichtmann Conway & Crowley in 1983.

It didn’t take long before attorney Crowley landed his first major case. In Anderson v. Cryovac (1986), attorney Crowley’s firm represented eight families from Woburn in federal court. The families sued three corporations for polluting the local groundwater with toxic chemicals, which led to a member of each family developing leukemia.

A bitter legal battle ensued and the judge presiding over the case declared a mistrial. However, during the appeals process, attorney Crowley and his firm discovered that the defendants had made errors during the case, which led to crucial evidence being omitted during trial. Once this information came to light, the defendants agreed to settle with attorney Crowley and his clients out of court. The story was picked up by Hollywood and became an Oscar-nominated film starring Val Kilmer called A Civil Action.

Since then, attorney Crowley has put his energy towards winning smaller cases. He founded his current firm, the Law Office of William J. Crowley, in January of 2000. He continues to work there today, maintaining a reputation among his clients as an astute, dedicated attorney that will never give up on a case he thinks is winnable.
