With over 15 years of practice experience, there is no legal issue that Attorney Craven is not up to the challenge to solve.  Attorney Craven has an extensive background in various areas of the law, including but not limited to family, criminal defense, probate, intellectual property/trademark, and civil litigation.  He hopes to leave a lasting legacy in the legal profession through his hiring practices, mentorship of young lawyers, and integrity demonstrated to his clientele.  Attorney Craven cares about people, as shown by the reviews of his many clients and friends.

After graduating from Greenville High School, Attorney Craven attended undergraduate at the University of South Carolina, where he graduated with honors and was President of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.
