When it comes to litigation and trial strategy, he is regularly recognized by his peers as being at the top of the list.

As a trial lawyer, Craig is triple board certified and focuses his practice on complex civil litigation in multiple areas including business litigation, catastrophic personal injury litigation, wrongful death litigation, product liability litigation, commercial trucking accident litigation, and construction litigation.

Craig is Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.

Craig has also earned an AV Preeminent Rating (5.0/5.0) from Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, which is the highest possible rating a lawyer can earn for both ethical standards and legal ability.
