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

- Injuries under federal or state tort claim laws
He also has decades of experience with common personal injury cases like:
- Car accidents

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.
When I had to address a difficult civil matter he was my first and only call for assistance. Attorney Crowley is truly dedicated and took the time to delve into my matter before we met, and came extremely well prepared to our first meeting, putting me at ease right away. Throughout our course of interaction he always went out of his way to keep me promptly informed, and advised me at every turn with thorough explanation of all available options.
Attorney Crowley's diligence proved exemplary; he argued and won a crucial motion for me that lead to a very favorable outcome. When I first read his motion brief I knew his eloquence with language and concise arguments would be decisive in protecting my interests against the opposition, and we recently concluded the matter with a very favorable result that could not have been better for me. I would highly recommend him for anyone involved in civil litigation. You will be in great hands, and he will represent you as if you are his only client. He is an excellent attorney.
