Chad Crowl

Criminal Defense

Charles (Chad) Crowl is an experienced trial attorney who specializes in and is passionate about matters of criminal defense. Chad was born and raised in Montgomery County and graduated from Conroe High School in 2003.

Chad attended Texas Tech University School of Law and while there had the opportunity to work as a researcher for the defense team in a capital murder case where the death penalty was being sought, intern for two Montgomery County District Courts and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, and receive a provisional bar card his final year of law school in order to be able to represent indigent clients in criminal matters through Tech Law’s Criminal Defense Clinic.

After graduating law school with honors, Chad joined two of his best friends from law school at the Bowie County Public Defender’s Office in Texarkana, Texas. During his five years at the Public Defender’s Office Chad began as the misdemeanor attorney, representing hundreds of indigent clients with their criminal matters. While working as the misdemeanor Public Defender, Chad immediately began trying felony cases and after eighteen months, Chad was promoted to a felony caseload and spent the next three and a half years as the sole Public Defender for the 5th Judicial District Court. Over the course of his career at the Public Defender’s Office, Chad served as trial counsel for dozens of felony jury trials in every District Court in Texarkana, Texas. But one of the most unexpectedly rewarding parts of his career as a Public Defender was having the opportunity to serve as part of a “Drug Court” team in Texarkana, where he had the opportunity to closely work with district judges, probation officers, law enforcement and individual clients who were struggling with recovery from substance abuse while on probation.

After five rewarding years in Texarkana, Chad returned home to Conroe and Montgomery County in order to be closer to his family and open a private practice in his hometown. Chad is a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and is a graduate of it’s prestigious Texas Criminal Trial College program. He is also a member of the Montgomery County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Texas Young Lawyers Association and Grace Lutheran Church. When he’s not working, Chad enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, reading, Texas Tech football and hanging out with his much-loved (but poorly-behaved), rescue Lab, Nola. Chad is passionate about navigating his clients through the complicated, stressful and often frightening, world of criminal law.
