History

Excelling in Legal Services

Cromey Law has seen success in many areas of law since its inception. Its appellate practice has convinced the First District Court of Appeals to reverse several judges in a variety of cases ranging from domestic violence injunctions, vehicular manslaughter, to post-conviction relief cases. In his past, Jason has worked in a firm dedicated to personal injury, and he has brought that experience with him to the firm.

In addition, a large portion of Carrie’s career has been devoted to representing clients in Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcies, representing homeowners in foreclosure cases, debtors in credit card cases, and people trying to grapple with their student loan debt.

Our Journey So Far

2005

Our Journey Begins

Both Jason and Carrie graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2005, passed the Florida Bar in 2005 and then the Alabama Bar in 2007. Jason joined the Public Defender’s Office in West Palm Beach Florida and quickly rose to the position of Felony Division Supervisor. Carrie gained experience working for several years at the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.

In 2009, they moved to Pensacola where Jason assumed the role of Misdemeanor Chief from the public defender’s office, and Carrie worked with her father, a bankruptcy attorney in Alabama.

After a few years, Jason took an opportunity to work for Michles & Booth representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. Carrie worked as an associate attorney for two commercial litigation firms which represented default mortgage servicers and banks where she learned the internal tactics banking institutions use when litigating foreclosures. Loaded with experience, Jason went back to practicing criminal defense and DUI law and Carrie left and devoted her skills and attention to the nonprofit world where she applied the knowledge she had learned working in the banking industry to aid individuals through the difficult bankruptcy and foreclosure processes.

2015

The Founding of Cromey Law

After a ten-year career focusing almost exclusively on DUI, criminal defense, and criminal appellate work, Jason Cromey founded Cromey Law, P.A. in 2015. The office, located off of Cervantes in the historic North Hill neighborhood, has been home to this dynamic and successful law firm since its inception.

Every new case presents the firm with another opportunity to apply its collective knowledge and skills to help clients through the chaos of the criminal justice system, the appellate process, bankruptcy & debt resolution, personal injury, and their fight with insurance companies.

2015+

Consistent Industry Recognition

Jason has been recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star beginning in 2016 and has made the list each year since. Only 2.5% of the attorney in the nation are designated as Super Lawyers Rising Stars each year. He has also been recognized as one of the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers over the course of several years – in 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018. Jason's success has been consistently recognized by his peers over the years, earning him the privilege of being AV Rated Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, the nation’s oldest attorney ranking program.

In 2017, Carrie had the honor of participating in the Florida Bar Foundation-sponsored Racial Justice Fellowship. In 2018 she joined colleagues at the American Bar Association’s Equal Justice Conference in San Diego to present on community lawyering. In addition, in that same year, Carrie was appointed to the Florida Bar's Consumer Law Protection Committee. She has served on the committee for the past three years and is looking forward to her continued service with the Florida Bar in helping debtors obtain access to the courts.

2018

Another Milestone for Carrie

In 2018 Carrie graduated Max Gardner's Bankruptcy Boot Camp, a nationally recognized intensive workshop on representing consumers against financial institutions. With her wealth of experience in civil litigation Carrie Vaughn Cromey looks to expand the services provided by Cromey Law, P.A. for years to come.
2019

Cromey Law's Growth and Continued Success

Over the past four years Cromey law has consistently demonstrated great success in the representation of its clients by getting cases dropped, dismissed, and resolved with lesser included offenses.

In 2019, looking to expand the services provided by the firm, Carrie Vaughn Cromey joined the office. While the bulk of her experience has centered around helping her clients fight against the banks and lending institutions, Carrie also spent time working for banks in bankruptcy and foreclosure cases. This experience allowed her great insight into how the financial institutions operate, and where they may be vulnerable.
