Craig Jones is a trial lawyer who has handled dozens of jury trials in state and federal courts over the past twenty-five years, as well as more than fifty published appeals -- including two cases that he personally argued before the United States Supreme Court. Very few attorneys can claim the honor of having ever argued in the Supreme Court, and Craig was fortunate enough to do so in two cases involving issues of federal constitutional law.
A native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Craig graduated with honors from Brown University, where he received an award for the best honors thesis in American History, in 1981, and he received his Juris Doctor law degree from Wake Forest University in 1985.
Craig has obtained several multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts for his clients, who include individuals killed or catastrophically injured by motor vehicle crashes, negligent medical care, unsafe products or premises, and police misconduct, as well as investors defrauded by brokerage firms. Craig is widely regarded by members of the Georgia Bar as an authority in the area of governmental liability, and many of his clients are referred to him by judges and lawyers who are familiar with the high quality of his work and his impressive courtroom successes.
He also has served as an expert witness in legal malpractice cases, being called upon by other attorneys to testify about the standards of conduct that should be followed by a lawyer in representing clients. He has presented lectures at numerous Continuing Legal Education seminars for lawyers, he has published articles in many legal publications, and he has been a featured guest speaker on nationwide news media. He is a long-time member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, which is dedicated to the preservation of the right to trial by jury.
