"What separates talent from success is hard work."
Mission statement: Always striving to exceed expectation through commitment to clients.
How did you end up in this role?
I came to this role by setting small, achievable goals in life and by not letting setbacks define my future. I became more determined to become a solicitor when I was first rejected to study law at Strathclyde University. I found another way. 7 years later I have 3 degrees, having studied at 3 different universities. Getting this role was the final piece in the jigsaw.
What do you love most about your job?
I consider myself to be very lucky to be involved in an area that I love, doing a job that I love. I have a deep rooted passion for problem solving and a background in customer service. To be able to combine these two passions in order to help solve legal problems for clients is why I choose to be a solicitor.
How do you do what you do?
Creative, detailed, determined, hardworking, logical, professional and understanding individual.
Craig’s passion for law stemmed from speaking to his uncle who is a corporate lawyer in New York. Even since hearing of a fast paced lifestyle, Craig was hooked on becoming a lawyer. Unlike others who study law Craig took a long way for a short cut and is just about to finish his 7th year of university studies to become a solicitor. He began his university studies at the University of the West of Scotland, obtain a BA in Law from the Paisley Campus. Thereafter, Craig moved onto the University of Strathclyde where he obtained a LLB Honours degree, graduating with a 2:1 final grade for his honours year. Craig also undertook the Diploma of Legal Practice at Strathclyde where he is set to graduate from in May. During his time at Strathclyde he has worked closely with the Law Clinic of Strathclyde that provides Free* legal advice to those who need it the most.
During his degree at the University of the West of Scotland Craig volunteered for the Erasmus exchange programme which enabled him to study at the University of Mannheim in Germany for 1 semester. Craig has always enjoyed the complexities of international law and thoroughly enjoyed the international side of the law at Mannheim University. So much so that he opted to do his Dissertation at the University of Strathclyde on one of the modules studied in Mannheim. This was International Commercial Arbitration.
I fulfil my competitive nature by playing football. I currently play for Thorn Athletic who play in the Caledonia Amateur Football League Premier Division. I am also a firm believer that an appropriate work/life balance is the key to happiness.
