    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have been opposing counsel on two medical malpractice cases handled by Craig. Although we are adversaries litigating opposite sides of a case, I have found Craig to be highly professional, ethical, aggressive and dedicated to his client's best interests. He is an excellent advocate and I endorse his work based on my personal experience.
