So thankful for Craig during my divorce
Excellent, very knowledgeable attorney that truly cares about his client. My marriage ended after twenty three years and Craig consistently assured me that he had my back and that everything would be ok. He and his staff kept me informed on everything every step of the way. He fought hard for me and my outcome was better than I expected. He and his team listened to me, encouraged me, guided me and supported me through a very dark time in my life. I am so thankful God led me to Craig and his team.

Grateful that I found Craig’s team!
I met with multiple attorneys for consults before finding Craig and the team at R+E. Naturally, he was my last consult because I knew within minutes that I needed to hire him. He was professional, kind, and made a difficult process a little bit easier. I am thankful that I found Craig and his team.

Great Experience for a Bad Situation
I consulted and ultimately hired Craig back in October 2018 to represent me in my divorce. Everyone from Craig to the staff I encountered were very nice and the lines of communication were always open from phone calls, texts, to emails. Very responsive all the way around. I felt like there were no false promises of hope, from the beginning Craig was honest even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear but IMO that's what you want. MY case wasn't a difficult case in the grand scheme of things, but let's face it when you are going through it, it's difficult for you. I was completely satisfied with the service, communication, and professional competence displayed during my divorce. I would highly recommend and would use again if that unfortunate situation arises.

Review of Craig Robertson
I can't say enough about Craig and his entire team. They go the extra mile to make uncomfortable situations comfortable. They pour their heart and souls into their work. I will be forever grateful for the time, dedication, and expertise they provide to me and family during a period of need.

Professional and Caring
Craig and Caylan have helped me out with my divorce and custody battle. They are awesome along with their staff. They gave me a peace about the situations I was in and I never had to worry about anything. They were extremely prepared in court and prior to court proceeding. The entire staff is very professional and caring.

Helped me walk through a difficult divorce
Robertson + Easterling has been such a bright spot in a difficult and dark time in my life. Craig helped navigate a difficult and complicated divorce and custody agreement. He was always available, ready to assist and provide excellent legal advice. His staff is amazing, especially Cassie, and they make it a point to care about each client and their needs. I would recommend Craig and R + E without hesitation for any of your divorce and child custody legal issues.

Best.Attorney.Ever.
I hired Craig Robertson to represent me in a nasty custody battle that lasted well over a year. Craig and the Firm were consummate professionals, meticulously combing over every last detail of what amounted to thousands of pages of information produced in the discovery process. He never lost sight of the human side of this process - we were more than just clients to him. We felt valued, important and were always in good hands. I absolutely trust Craig both as my lawyer and as a man of high character. I recommend Robertson + Easterling without hesitation or reservation; they get results!

Simply the best!
Craig Robertson and his whole office, especially Cassie, were amazing. From the initial consult to sending me the final divorce decree, I honestly could not ask for a better team to get me through this process. I was dealing with an urgent, emotional divorce (as I imagine many are) and everyone I dealt with in that office was not only supportive, but were incredibly responsive and flexible to my needs. I took me a while to write this review - as I needed distance from the whole situation, but in reflecting on my interactions with his office and the entire process, I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. There were no wasted days, every call was answered, and I simply could not recommend anyone more strongly. Thank you to the entire office.

Worth every penny!
What can I say about Robertson + Associates….They are worth every penny! From the initial phone call, Cassie made me feel like my story was important and that she truly cared about me and my well being. I felt incredibly informed about every detail that was transpiring throughout the discovery and settlement processes in my case. Craig, specifically, is a great listener, very efficient with your time and aggressive in terms of protecting his client’s interests. Craig always made me feel like I was his only client even though I know he has a very busy family law practice. He is very personal in the way he deals with his clients and provides comfort throughout the divorce process. Even though I know that he is my attorney, I truly feel like he has become my friend. I pray I never have to go through another divorce, but if I do, I will hire Robertson + Associates without a second thought.

Adoption
Craig and his staff have been wonderful to work with during our very difficult adoption process. They make us feel like their only client every time we call or meet. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated legal team fighting on our behalf.

Craig is very knowledgable in his field of expertise and caring for his client. I would recommend him to any of my friends if they were in need of a good attorney.

Wouldn't Hire Anyone Else
Mr. Robertson handled my divorce. He was kind, supportive, knowledgeable and efficient. He encouraged me when I was heartbroken; his knowledge and skill enabled me to move quickly through an experience I never wanted to have. Each decision was my own, but he gave me all the facts and all my options so I could make wise decisions. I'm so grateful that he was on my side. Should there need to be further action taken on having the terms of my divorce enforced or child support enforced, I cannot imagine hiring anyone else.

Best lawyer ever!
i wouldn't recommend any other divorce lawyer in MS as long as Craig is still practicing law. He is the best, hands down. He prepared me for depositions, and the possibility of court which we never had to go to. I have full confidence in him in when it comes to the law.

Review on Craig Robertson
I felt very safe and secure working with Craig and his team. They were caring, professional, informative, and fair. The office was welcoming and made me feel right at ease.
Posted by Elizabeth | April 3, 2015
I highly recommend Craig Robertson
Craig handled my divorce with sympathy and efficiency. While being very clear he is not a proponent for divorce, he was very straight forward about the facts of my case which made the reality less stressful. I greatly appreciated his efficient pace in moving forward. He was prepared to take a document to the court when he was on vacation with his family. He and his staff are discreet, caring and non-judgmental which made a very difficult and uncomfortable process a little easier. Finally, Craig was very clear up front about his role and the cost involved. It is without hesitation I recommend Craig Robertson.

Patience & Poise
I would highly recommend Craig as a divorce attorney to any personal friend, family member, or acquaintance. Craig is the most organized and thought out individual I've ever known. He is meticulous in his planning to create a winning strategy. Many times throughout my process, Craig told me I needed to have patience and poise. He drove that into my mind and ultimately the wait paid off. We got the settlement we wanted. Even though my case settled, I've seen and been around Craig enough to know that his organization, planning, tenacity, wisdom, and charisma would be one powerful combination to battle in the courtroom. You have a very strong chance of getting what you want if Craig is leading your charge.

Excellent Attorney
Child custody/guardianship case. He told us what to expect, how to deal with it. Takes care of details. As issues have arisen over time he (or his firm) have kept us on top of things. His strong suit is in the courtroom. He knows the law and has the confidence to carry it through. Would reccomend him highly.
