Biography

Chris Craig’s path toward a unique and relevant practice started with a family of lawyers. Every man in his family was an attorney—both grandfathers, his father, and all of his uncles. Even his mother, though not a lawyer, attended Georgetown Law School. He grew up immersed in discussions about law and justice.

Chris has never stopped teaching. Chris enjoyed proving to students that they already possessed all of the tools necessary for thinking clearly and communicating complex notions effectively. He learned to mediate in the classroom, how to be firm while being fair, and how to advocate for a long-term goals that could be hard to reach.

Immediately after Chris earned his license to practice as a lawyer, he joined a small firm. Almost immediately after that, one of the five lawyers died. Suddenly missing the only attorney willing to work on family law cases, including adoption cases, the firm needed to address the impending crisis… and deal with a large amount of work in the process. At the time, Chris didn’t know the difference between a custody order and a contagious cough. More than 175 active, mostly angry cases landed on his desk with a giant whomp! As a young, new associate in the firm, it was suddenly his responsibility to manage and address a huge caseload during very difficult times. Chris says it wasn’t just trial-by-fire…. it was trial-by-nuclear-bomb.

For people seeking help with adoption and adoption law, Chris brings empathetic, organized efficiency. He brings all his skills to the table to ensure that this transition is done fast…and done right.

For estate planning law, Chris seeks to guide you in creating the most appropriate estate plan for you and your family, one that protects your loved ones but that isn’t overly complicated or difficult to maintain. He helps protect your kids and your assets when bad stuff happens to you.
