Renowned Constitutional Attorney Joins Liberty Counsel's Legal Team

Steve Crampton Becomes Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel

Stephen M. Crampton has joined Liberty Counsel as Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel. Crampton previously served for several years as Chief Counsel of the American Family Association Center for Law & Policy in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Crampton has practiced constitutional and civil rights litigation since 1993. He has served as lead counsel in numerous cases, many of which have resulted in reported decisions in state and federal district and appellate courts. In his role as a policy advisor, Crampton has assisted in drafting legislation and advising lawmakers on constitutional issues at both state and national levels.

Crampton frequently speaks around the country on current events and social issues. He has appeared as a guest on nationally televised news programs on CNN, FOX News and MSNBC. He has been quoted in major publications such as The Washington Post, The Washington Times and the National Law Journal. He has authored columns appearing on Alan Keyes' RenewAmerica.com, WorldNetDaily.com, AFA.net, and ChristianWorldviewNetwork.com, among others.

Mr. Crampton received his law degree from the University of New Mexico, where he was a member of the Law Review. He is admitted to practice law in the states of Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas and New Mexico, before every federal appeals court, and the United States Supreme Court.

Steve Crampton is a terrific addition to our legal staff. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with Steve on litigation, case strategy and policy issues for many years, but it is even more exciting to actually have him join the Liberty Counsel team. His presence will strengthen our already excellent litigation team.
