Jimmy D. Crawford

Jimmy Crawford was born in Corpus Christi, TX in 1959, and lived his first 20 years or so in the Lone Star State. He and most of his family are unrepentant Texas Aggies (insert joke here). While you might not be able to tell it now if you catch him on his way to court in his shirt and tie, Jimmy was a forester for almost ten years in Louisiana, running logging crews, marking timber for harvesting and planting trees. In the throes of an early and potentially misguided mid-life crisis, Jimmy went back to law school, graduating in the top quarter of his class from the top environmental law school in the country.
