Board certified by the NBTA, Craig Robertson has worked in Mississippi divorce and family law for over 18 years, and is well respected for his innovation, energy and hustle.
We all make choices every day affecting our forever. No question your life can take on a different paradigm in the blink of an eye, but I find in the realm of divorce, this is the exception, not the hard and fast rule. Live by the mantra of patience and poise in the heat of divorce and you will be just fine. Remember, the JOURNEY is the DESTINATION.
When I first met Craig and his team I was broken. When my husband asked me for a divorce, I was terrified because I was a stay at home mom with two small children. However, after my first meeting with Craig, I left with a sense of peace. I left feeling empowered and with the knowledge I needed to proceed with the divorce. Thanks to Craig and his amazing team, I was able to not only dissolve my marriage extremely timely, but with dignity.
Get to Know Craig
I grew up at the ballpark. If I wasn’t playing, I was watching my older brother. Actually, I didn’t exactly watch him-- I ran around chasing foul balls, which could be returned for free snow cones to the concession stand. In the Mississippi summer heat, nothing beats crushed ice with sugary juice, the kind that makes your whole mouth turn blue or purple or red. We also played cupball, a game like baseball having a ball made from wax paper Coca-Cola cups. A Coke was fifty cents, so our cups came from the trash. It would take several to make a ball, and sometimes we put gravel inside for more weight. The balls fell apart regularly, but we just smashed the cups back together and kept playing. There is typically no bat in cupball, just the palm of the batter’s hand. The bases were anything at the park in the shape of a diamond—like the corner of the aluminum bleachers for first, a steal drum garbage can for second, a bare spot on the ground for third, and a glove for home. The rules are for the most part like regular baseball, but you can also make an out by hitting your opponent with the ball. We called this “pegging.” If you didn’t have enough players, which was almost always, a team could shift the runners from base to base and leave ghost runners in their place, bringing in a base runner to be the next batter. We would play until it was time to go. I usually fell asleep in my dad’s truck on the way home.
My dad coached my baseball team for several years. He was a lefty. I was the youngest of six kids-- Mom and dad each had two from a previous marriage before getting together and having my older brother and me. By the time I was seriously playing ball, dad was well into his 50’s. We spent lots of time in the front yard playing catch, but he would get tired after a while. His biggest demand was always for hustle. If I was playing outfield, he wanted me to be the first to my position and the first to return to the dugout after the third out. Robertsons hustle. That’s just how it is.
