Massachusetts Bankruptcy Law
The Crossley Law Offices have specialized in bankruptcy law for over 12 years. However, our Massachusetts bankruptcy lawyers have also been privileged to work as trial counsel in a variety of non-bankruptcy cases; such as representation of corporate clients in class-action defense litigation before the state and federal courts, consulting in a multi-million dollar securities claim against a U.S. Securities brokerage and representation of clients in commercial litigation.
Other Legal Practice Areas
The Crossley Law Offices have significant experience with bankruptcy, personal-injury, and family law (particularly negotiating Surrogate, Gestational Carrier and Egg Donor agreements), and Attorney David C. Crossley has also provided legal services to Japanese law firms, and Japanese legal professionals and businesses, such as: Hitachi Co. Ltd., the Central Bank of Japan, Kanagawa University, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., and Quintiles Transnational.
Prior to opening the Crossley Law Offices, Attorney Crossley worked as in-House Counsel and Supervising Attorney for the 14th largest consumer debt collection law firm in the United States where he was primarily responsible for handling the defense of complex class actions brought against the collection firm throughout the United States. He successfully defended 100% of these cases from reaching class certification. These actions typically focused on alleged violations of state and federal debt collection laws, consumer protection statutes and consumer finance statutes.
Before that, Attorney Crossley worked as a law clerk and then Associate Attorney for the Boston based law firm LAWSON & WEITZEN, LLP. While with that firm he was primarily responsible for commercial litigation, family law, securities arbitration, personal injury and medical malpractice actions.
Attorney Crossley is proficient in Japanese and has developed a 20 week course on USA law for the Jikei Group of Colleges/ILC in Tokyo, Japan, which is taught to Japanese lawyers and legal professionals with law firms such as Allen & Overy, CAST Itoga Law, P.C., and Mori Hamada & Matsumoto, and with companies such as Hitachi Co. Ltd., Kirin Holdings Company, Ltd., Asahi Breweries, Ltd., the Japanese business newspaper Nikkei, Metal One and ABeam Consulting.
