Kenneth D. Craig was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and worked as a Park Ranger for the City of Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in History from the University of British Columbia in 2003. He lived abroad as an educator in Asia and Europe and received a Master’s in Applied Linguistics from the University of Southern Queensland in 2008 and a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from the University of Leicester in 2011. He completed his legal education with a Master of Laws (Common Law) from the University of British Columbia in 2013. Following law school, he articled in Vancouver doing civil litigation at Nathanson, Schachter, and Thompson LLP, family law at Hamilton Fabbro, and solicitors’ work at Synergy Business Lawyers and was called to the bar of British Columbia in 2016.
He practiced family law at a firm in Surrey and a firm in North Vancouver before joining Dominion Law in 2019 and now practices in family law and civil litigation. He sees the primary duty of a lawyer as the promotion of compromise and reconciliation through negotiation, mediation, and arbitration and not the exploitation of legal and adversarial advantages. He has also represented clients successfully at trial in the Provincial Court of British Columbia and Supreme Court of British Columbia.
Mr. Craig has volunteered as a legal researcher with the People’s Law School in Vancouver and as a mechanic with the British Columbia Cancer Foundation’s Ride to Conquer Cancer and with the Bikes for Tykes Foundation. He supports advocacy for land access and trail maintenance through his membership in the North Shore Mountain Biking Association.
