Craig has been on the Board of the Arizona Attorneys for Criminal Justice (AACJ) from 2014-present and its elected President in 2018. He works tirelessly on pushing forward the agenda of improving the criminal justice system. Craig's efforts include drafting legislation that seeks to reform criminal justice in Arizona and advocating against unconstitutional bills. Most recently, his office was single handily been responsible for a bill signed by the Governor and passed into law. Craig is a board member for the Arizona Justice (Innocence) Project while also being an active member of various professional organizations, including the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).

A group hosted by the Arizona Supreme Court with stakeholders including Judges, Justices of the Peace, Law enforcement, and many Prosecutors. The goal was to discuss and offer suggestions on reform for how DUI cases are processed in Court.

Craig is beyond brilliant in his knowledge and approach to reconciling case. I felt like Craig truly cared about my case and well being. He fought hard, did an exceptional job, lowering my sentence in many ways. I'm a fan, personally and professionally. His firm Rosenstein Law Group offers exceptional care and consideration to anyone who happens to need their services. I highly recommend Craig to anyone who needs excellent representation!

Dedicated and determined
My case was very complicated with many variables. From the first time we sat down with Craig and his team to our last meeting in the courtroom they were all dedicated and determined to see that justice prevailed. After 2 years all charges were dropped. Thank you to Craig and his team I will never forget the care and sensitivity you showed me and how determined you all were.

Professional and Caring
Rosenstein Law Group has done an excellent job handling my legal complications. I have been represented by multiple prominent firms in the past, and the attorneys at Rosenstein Law have impressed beyond measure. Their attention to detail is a step above the rest. The involvement of their entire team provides for great results. I have worked with both Craig and Chris personally, both of which have provided a sense of comfort that I haven't felt with other attorneys. The entire staff is incredibly competent and caring. The legal representation offered by Rosenstein Law Group is a step above the rest.
