  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Craig for years and have the highest respect for his knowledge of both the law and the courtroom. Litigation is learned more from experience than law school and Craig has excelled. And few attorneys know Elder Law issues as he does too. He cares about his clients and understands the value of helping them make good personal decision as well as good business decisions in legal matters. I highly recommend him.
