Following his undergraduate studies, he attended Loyola University New Orleans College of Law.  Craig graduated cum laude and was given the distinction of William S.

With the support of his family and close friends, Craig formed his Firm and focused his practice on representing hard-working individuals rather than large corporate entities and insurance companies.  In his time litigating serious personal injury matters, Craig has developed a valuable understanding of why insurance companies deny claims, how they assign a value to your loss, and their strategies for minimizing the compensation you deserve.  Craig puts this knowledge to work for you, with the goal of ensuring that you can resolve a difficult situation with the confidence that you have been compensated fairly. 

Craig is a member of the Louisiana Bar Association as well as the American Inns of Court of Acadiana.  Craig is also a Court Appointed Special Advocate and represents the interests of foster children in the Acadiana area.
