Why Dobson Law?
Lawyers play an essential role in American life, yet there are few professions more difficult or underappreciated. Kenneth "Craig" Dobson has practiced immigration law since 2005 and knows the importance of the work lawyers do and the challenges they face. His interest in ethics began while studying philosophy at university and continued throughout law school where he earned the highest grade in his law school ethics class. Craig is dedicated to the study and practice of the law and ethics of lawyering and is frequently asked to speak and write on the subject. He represents lawyers from all practice areas, but has a particular focus on representing immigration lawyers and advising lawyers on the multi-jurisdictional practice of law. His goal remains providing lawyers with world-class representation, helping good lawyers become better.
