About the Author

Phillip Crawford Jr. is a retired attorney from the New York bar.

He attended Bates College in Lewiston, Maine from which he graduated with a B.A. in English in 1985. At Bates he was President of the Gay-Straight Alliance in 1983, and spearheaded a campaign to oust military recruiters from the campus for their discriminatory policies against the LGBT community.

Crawford then attended George Washington University Law School where he was a Notes Editor for the Law Review. After graduating in 1988 he clerked for Chief Judge Judith W. Rogers on the D.C. Court of Appeals, and then with Judge George H. Revercomb on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He practiced law for fifteen years in New York City including several years with the plaintiffs' class action bar, and then retired after exposing his concerns about billing practices. Professor Lester Brickman characterized him in Lawyer Barons as a whistle blower.

Since 2009 he has been blogging about organized crime at Friends of Ours, and is the leading authority on the historic role of the Mafia in gay bars. Crawford was interviewed by Helen Nianias for VICE about his book The Mafia and the Gays, and quoted in an article by Logan Hendrix for the New York Press papers on the closing of The Candle Bar.
