    I have had the pleasure working opposite Craig in a family law matter. What I was most impressed by was Craig’s zealous dedication to his client’s best interests and his ability to remain calm and professional during times when a lesser lawyer might be susceptible to losing his or her composure. I am also familiar with Craig’s reputation as remarkably knowledgeable in the area of insurance law, an area in which he is held in the highest regard. I without reservation recommend Craig as an attorney and am proud to call him a colleague.
