About Craig Cherney:
Craig Cherney is a different kind of attorney. He truly listens and solves problems rather than merely identify risks. Craig is also a different kind of attorney for a family law firm. Craig brings complex real property, business and financial expertise to family law enabling him to offer clients a tremendous strategic advantage. He provides a unique perspective to complex issues like division of business partnerships, income streams and high net worth assets often implicated in family law disputes.
In law school, only the top graduates are offered the privilege of working for a federal judge. Craig was one of the few to clerk for a federal judge after law school. Clerking for a sitting federal judge is the toughest training an attorney can get, bar none. Having participated in over 100 federal court cases, Craig’s writing and advocacy skills are razor sharp. Craig has litigated at the ‘”highest level” such that his skills in the Family Law courtroom are proven and exceptional.
Craig has practiced law for 16 years and is licensed in three states: Arizona, California and Nevada. In addition to his term as a Big Law associate, Craig has served as in house corporate counsel, and Director and Vice President for two large real estate development firms. This multistate perspective and business acumen brings a comprehensive and advanced approach to your legal issues that is uncommon among many practitioners. Craig is a lawyer who solves problems, rather than just identifies the risks that come with them. He brings a federal practitioner’s skills and years of private sector business experience to you -- skills that can give your case a distinct advantage.
On a personal note, Craig has gone through a divorce of his own and knows what it is like to be sitting in your shoes. You’ll find you have a friend to help you through, not just an attorney. Now married to a lifelong Phoenician, Craig and his spouse reside in North Scottsdale with their son.
Licensed to serve clients in Arizona, California and Nevada.
