Anderson Crawley & Burke, pllc was founded in 2003, but the roots of the firm's history run to the 1970's when Jim Anderson, ACB's Managing Member, entered the world of workers' compensation first as a Claims Professional with a national insurer and then as a Claims Supervisor/Administrative Assistant with the Mississippi Workers' Compensation Commission. Since entering private law practice in 1978, his career has remained focused primarily on workers' compensation issues involving the defense of employers and carriers in litigation, mediation of disputes, and even service as General Counsel and Secretary for a Mississippi workers' compensation insurer and third party administrator.
Tim Crawley began his career as an attorney on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the 1980's, and his career path has permitted him to try virtually every kind of case for which liability or risk is covered by insurance, and the depth of that experience is illustrated by the fact that he has represented civil defendants in litigation in 69 of Mississippi’s 82 counties.
Sharkey Burke's career in insurance defense began in the 1990's with Tim's firm, first on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and then in Jackson, and he has excelled in the representation of businesses and governmental entities in a wide variety of disputes throughout Mississippi. Jim and Tim joined as partners in 2001 with another organization, but in 2003, Jim, Tim and Sharkey, along with several other attorneys, established Anderson Crawley & Burke, pllc. Since then, the firm has grown and expanded into the leadership role which it currently enjoys.
