Effective legal writing remains a crucial part of winning lawsuits. Making the most of a client’s case means, in large part, crafting documents that tell their stories persuasively, and that drive points home with compelling legal analysis.
For 20 years, Craig has specialized in legal writing to support litigation. His work has been mainly in case-dispositive briefing, at the pre-trial stage, through trial, and on appeal. Craig has worked in complex consumer torts; commercial disputes; and a wide array of products-liability cases, including drugs, medical devices, and mass toxic torts. He has also spent a great deal of time analyzing expert testimony on a wide array of subjects. The first 17 years of his career were spent with a prominent defense firm in Birmingham, and the past few as a judicial clerk in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
Craig’s daily goal is to apply a focused and well-honed skill set to solving clients’ problems and advancing their interests. He is fortunate and excited to be working with a group of people with a real commitment to, and passion for, helping people through challenging situations. Today’s tools let Craig work for the good people at Conchin, Cloud & Cole from Northern California. When he’s not at the keyboard, Craig spends as much time as possible backpacking, playing soccer, reading, or enjoying world cinema.
