Since law school, Craig has used his education and love of the area to give back what he can. He participates in the Lawyer on the Line program, organizes and participates in events through the Greensboro Bar Association’s Community Involvement Committee, and volunteers at several events that provide legal aid to members of the Greensboro and North Carolina communities at no charge.
Craig attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and received his Juris Doctorate from Washington and Lee University School of Law.
