Biography

Craig Associates, PC was founded by attorney Christopher M. Craig to support the administrative and legal needs of growing families & businesses. Estate planning and the laws of inheritance are complex, so we can help simplify the process to ensure your end-of-life preferences, including trusts & wills, are handled effectively. Chris Craig sees clients across Buncombe County, convenient to Biltmore Forest, Black Mountain, Hendersonville, Highlands, Cashiers & other communities in Western NC. The practice provides estate law services, as well as adoption and small business law services. Our proactive approach empowers you to secure and safeguard your most precious assets: your loved ones and your legacy!

Chris Craig’s path toward a law practice started with a family of lawyers. Every man in his family was an attorney—both grandfathers, his father, and all of his uncles. Even his mother attended Georgetown Law School. He grew up immersed in discussions about law and justice.

After Chris earned his license to practice as a lawyer, he joined a small firm. Almost immediately after that, one of the five lawyers died. Suddenly missing the only attorney willing to work on family law cases, including adoption cases, the firm needed to address the impending crisis… and deal with a large amount of work in the process. As a young, new associate in the firm, it was suddenly his responsibility to manage and address a huge caseload during very difficult times.

For people seeking help with adoption and adoption law, Chris brings empathetic, organized efficiency. He brings all his skills to the table to ensure that this transition is done fast…and done right.

For estate planning law, Chris seeks to guide you in creating the most appropriate estate plan for you and your family, one that protects your loved ones but that isn’t overly complicated or difficult to maintain. He helps protect your kids and your assets when bad stuff happens to you.
