Top 40: M. Craig Robertson

There are no two ways about it – Craig Robertson loves his job.

Self-described as an innovative problem solver and energetic mediator, Robertson is the managing partner of Robertson & Associates, a boutique law firm dedicated to the practice of divorce and family law. Based in Ridgeland, the firm caters to clients all over Mississippi, including the Mississippi Delta and Gulf Coast.

Working with Mississippians in family crisis is a privilege that Robertson doesn’t take lightly, he says.

“It’s a huge responsibility guiding people through the most difficult time in their life,” he said. “Whether that means helping them protect the best interest of their children for their financial future, we try to put our clients in the best possible legal position to achieve their goals.”

Named as one of Mid-South Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” since 2008, Robertson frequently appears as a guest lecturer for continuing education programs, having made presentations in family law at Ole Miss and the Mississippi College law schools.

The ever-resourceful Jackson native even launched his own family law website, which features his own perspectives about marriage.

“The website came to be after being discouraged by seeing marriage after marriage fall because of predictable and avoidable problems,” he said.

He believes creativity is his best personal asset.

“Many people are smart, work hard and acquire diplomas but not everyone has creative vision and are willing to stand out,” said Robertson. “Every day in my job, I reach out to people in crisis and help them with their burdens through creativity.”

Matthew Taylor, a fellow attorney who grew up with Robertson in South Jackson, says his former college roommate at Ole Miss is dynamic in his unique approach to his law practice.

“Craig has an energy that is seldom seen among the Bar,” Taylor said. “His novel ideas regarding business development and his ability to maintain the highest degree of care and attention to his clients’ needs, are two of his biggest strengths.”

Since 2000, Robertson has devoted most of his volunteer time to Pinelake Baptist Church. He’s active in men’s, children’s and nursing home ministries.
