About me




I have been a trial lawyer for 26 years in the areas of Criminal, Domestic and all types of civil litigation. I am well liked by my clients, always prepared and promptly respond to all emails and phone calls. I cannot guarantee results, only that I have a lot of Courtroom experience, and that I advocate zealously for my clients. I have handled 600 plus trials, jury and non jury to completion and approximately 2000 plus bench trials and motions both criminal and civil since I began practicing law in 1989. My firm is a family firm in that I practice with my son Jason and my wife Cheryl who is the firms office manager.

  • James Hunt Johnson

    I am very pleased to have the opportunity to endorse Robert "Bob" Craig. I have been privileged to have been Bob's colleague for approximately 13 years as a fellow attorney in Alamance County from 2000-2009 and as the Alamance County Clerk of Superior Court from 2009-2010. Bob has always exhibited the highest degree of professional skill, judgment, and ethics. He is an excellent trial lawyer and litigator who is a passionate and fierce advocate for his clients. Bob is not only an excellent attorney but is also someone I admire greatly. He is a person of extraordinary intelligence, exemplary character, and courage.

    I recommend Bob Craig to anyone needing advice or representation for family law, criminal defense, or personal injury. You will like working with Bob, because he will be focused on your case, will work hard for you, and will let you know exactly what is going on in. He has a lot of experience, and really cares about his clients.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censure
    issued in NC, 2007


    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
