Craig has tried to verdict and settled numerous personal injury and workers’ compensation cases resulting in awards exceeding a million dollars for his clients. According to Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly, a settlement Craig obtained for a client in 2012 was more than twice the largest workers’ compensation settlement previously reported in Virginia. Craig was recognized as a member of Virginia’s “Legal Elite” by Virginia Business Magazine and has been selected as a Virginia “Super Lawyer” for the last eight years, including recognition as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in Virginia and Top 50 Lawyers in Richmond in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018. He has also been selected for inclusion by his peers in the publication “Best Lawyers in America” since 2013, and is one of the few attorneys recognized in two categories: workers' compensation and personal injury.
Craig is a member of the Virginia and West Virginia Bars and has been admitted to practice before all state and federal courts in those states.

He is also a Fellow of the College of Workers' Compensation Lawyers, an organization which honors attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the field of workers' compensation.
Craig’s experience in workers’ compensation and personal injury has given him a unique perspective on the overlap between these two areas of law. Craig frequently lectures at seminars on successfully resolving combined worker’s compensation and personal injury cases. He has also given presentations throughout Virginia on tactics for negotiating workers’ compensation liens in personal injury cases and has published articles on representing undocumented workers in workers’ compensation cases and negotiating cases under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.

He is involved in several charities, including Connor’s Heroes, and organizes annual benefit concerts to support these causes.
