    “Craig is very available to provide advice.”
    “He anticipates our potential needs even when there's no active litigation going on.”


    "I always ask myself, would I hire me again if I was the client. You can’t just ask this at the end of a matter, because then the answer is driven by success not service. I ask this during the matter, and sometimes I don’t like the result — that is when growth happens. Change is inevitable, growth is not."

    – Craig Cardon
