Ken Crosson

Attorney, Owner

Ken Crosson established Piedmont Injury Law to send the insurance industry the message that they have to start treating injured people with the respect and concern that they deserve. His mission is to protect, stand up for, and change the lives of people who have been injured by careless driving or other acts of negligence.

Ken graduated with honors from the Georgia State University College of Law after earning a bachelor’s degree at the College of William and Mary in Virginia and a master’s degree from Kennesaw State University. He is a member of the Cobb County Bar Association, the State Bar of Georgia, and the State Bar of Virginia as well as the bars of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the Court of Appeals of Georgia, and the Supreme Court of Georgia. Ken has handled a wide variety of cases at both the trial and appellate level in both the Atlanta and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas and now devotes his practice on helping injured people and their families.

Ken and his wife Tracy have been married for twenty years, and they have been blessed with three boys and a little girl. Outside of the office Ken enjoys building things, traveling, spending time with his family, hiking, swimming, biking, and running (and combining those last three in triathlons), and he is an Assistant Scoutmaster for his sons’ Scouts USA troop.

He is committed to giving back to the community he lives and works in, and is actively involved in local business and civic organizations. Ken is past president and serves on the board of directors for the Northeast Cobb Business Association, where he is chairman of the Bylaws Committee. He is also a member of the Kennesaw Business Association, IN WDSTK, and the Kiwanis Club of Marietta, as well as being an active volunteer and sponsor at McCleskey Middle School and Kell High School.
