Crystal Rowe spent five years working as a judicial clerk at the Indiana Court of Appeals and another year working as a trial court clerk in Allen County before joining Kightlinger & Gray, LLP. These experiences give her a deep understanding of appellate and trial practice, enabling her to more efficiently assist clients with Appellate, Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith, Professional Liability, and General Insurance Defense matters. Crystal also has experience before the Department of Administration.

Crystal is an active member of several legal and professional organizations. She is presently the Chair of the Indiana State Bar Association’s Appellate Section and has held other leadership positions in the Indiana State Bar Association, Floyd County Bar Association, American Bar Association (ABA) Counsel of Appellate Lawyers, Defense Research Institute (DRI), and Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana (DTCI). In 2016, Crystal was appointed to the Supreme Court Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure—a Committee charged with reporting to the Indiana Supreme Court from time to time with recommendations and proposed amendments to promote simplicity in procedure, just determination of litigation, and elimination of unjustified expense and delay. Crystal was a participant in the Indianapolis Bar Leader Series III and the Appellate Practice Institute. In 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014, Crystal was selected for inclusion on the Rising Stars list published in Indiana Super Lawyers Magazine.  Crystal currently serves as the Chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group.
