The staff has been courtesy and professional. Mr Craig has devoted time and attention to details about my case, and he has kept me well informed. I'm very pleased with their services and would highly recommend Mr. Craig and his staff.

Auto Accident Attorney
I got in a wreck and was referred by a friend to Brian Craig. I tried dealing with the insurance company myself and was getting nothing. He settled the case and made sure I was compensated for what i went through was able to get my medical bills down. Brian seemed to genuinely care about my well being and i would recommend him to anyone.

Great result for child custody
My wife disappeared with my 4 year son. Brian Craig helped reunite me with my Son and got me primary custody. It was a long road but Brian was with me every step on the way.

Wonderful experience
My experience with Mr. Craig was wonderful. I called after being in an accident and he was very helpful in guideing me through each process and was there every step of the way. I never had to call or ask questions, he was on top of everything, which seemed to me his intrest was mostly in how I was recovering for my accident. I have already recommended this lawyer to 2 other people.

Needing a Divorce Attorney
My divorce was an amicable one, yet nonetheless there were many situations where Brian's counsel came in handy. For example, he went over exactly how to handle retirement accounts and each of our joint accounts. He also went over the tax effects of each item. At our initial meeting, Brian explained the entire process to me, as well as my rights and responsibilities. That prevented me from having any surprises later on. I brought to that initial meeting our tax returns, bank statement, investment statement, pay stubs, and anything else I could think of. That enabled us to discuss each of those items right away, and it definitely helped the process move along as quickly as possible. Brian was responsive to both emails and telephone calls. He moved quickly, which was very important to me. His rates were very competitive. I appreciated Brian's honesty and good counsel. He is very professional, and I would definitely recommend him to others.

Poor Correspondence
I am currently a client with this firm for a personal injury case. The initial consultation was very professional and correspondence was efficient. However, for the past several months I have left messages and have received no correspondence from their office. My case is ready for trial, and I had to find out while doing my own research of the online court documents that my case was marked closed at one point, and now marked inactive with no explanation given. I have been left to find the answers.
