John G. Crandley, Jr.

Welcome to Preston,Wilson & Crandley, PLC

Preston, Wilson & Crandley, PLC originated in 1955 when E. Page Preston opened his solo practice in Norfolk, Virginia. Mr. Preston developed his practice principally in the area of insurance defense. Over the years, Mr. Preston was joined by his brother John Preston and later by Gilbert Wilson. In 2009, John G. Crandley, Jr., joined the firm.

The firm has litigated in all levels of Virginia’s state court system, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. This includes many trials through verdict and judgment as well as extensive appellate work.

Preston, Wilson & Crandley, PLC has continued its practice in insurance defense through the present, but in recent years has expanded its scope of practice to include plaintiff’s personal injury litigation, plaintiff’s insurance contract litigation, general civil litigation, and traffic court defense. We regularly handle cases in the cities of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Suffolk as well as on Virginia’s Peninsula and Eastern Shore, and we are happy to discuss representation of potential clients outside of these geographic areas.

The firm welcomes inquiries not only from insurance companies but also from individuals who have personal injury claims, insurance contract claims, civil litigation issues, or traffic court cases.
