Craig Dashiell's litigation practice focuses on resolving financial disputes between companies or between individuals over a wide range of matters, including class actions, breach of contract disputes, bankruptcies, and business divorce, as well as trusts and estates litigation and intellectual property claims with millions of dollars at stake.
While always willing to employ an aggressive approach where necessary, Craig’s primary goal is to facilitate the most cost- and time-efficient solution to achieve his clients’ overall business objectives. Story telling is central to his practice, and his ability to communicate his arguments in clear, relatable terms has led to successful early exits from litigation for his clients through motion practice, as well as victories in arbitration, at trial, and on appeal. He also leverages mediation and dynamic settlement discussions, when needed, to meet his clients' legal needs.
Active in the firm's pro bono program, Craig was a member of the team that negotiated a significant settlement in a class action on behalf of more than 700 young immigrants, challenging the U.S. government’s illegal policy of disqualifying 18- to 21-year-olds from Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). He has also obtained asylum for clients from Honduras and Syria, advocated for victims of domestic violence and detainees in the penal system, and advised charter schools on their internal practices.
In addition, Craig is a co-founder of the firm's Diversity Leadership Network, a growing employee resource group focused on recruiting and supporting diverse attorneys.
