Judge Crawford administers Oath to son


On December 18, 2019, William H. Crawford III, was sworn into the Michigan Bar in a ceremony conducted in the 67th District Court.  Attorney Loyst Fletcher Jr. made the motion for admission and Judge William H. Crawford II, acting as a 7th Judicial Circuit Court Judge by assignment of the State Court Administrative Office, administered the oath.  It was an emotional evening as Judge Crawford reflected upon his feelings after he saw his signature in the “Red Book” from when he was sworn in 37 years ago, and then he flipped the pages for his son’s signature.  “Will” is a recent graduate of Duke University School of Law.  He will be off next year to work for the law firm Hogan Lovells in Washington D.C. after completing his federal court clerkship in Detroit, MI.  Will currently serves as a law clerk for the Honorable Chief Judge Denise Page Hood, of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Chief Judge Hood attended the ceremony along with her husband, Reverend Nicholas Hood III.  The ceremony was also attended by Attorney Christopher McGrath who was sworn in by Judge Crawford many years ago.  Attorneys Kendall B. Williams, Barry Wolf, Karen Lopez, Ken Scott, Brenda Williams, Tabitha Marsh, and Trachelle Young, and many other friends and family provided support and enhanced a wonderful evening.
