About Craig Bernhardt

Craig Bernhardt is a partner and lead trial attorney at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh P.C. He aggressively and proactively represents his clients in both personal injury and criminal defense cases.

Throughout his career, Craig has won hundreds of cases in various courts across New York State. Because of this unprecedented success, he was named partner at the firm after just three years of practicing law. This is an accomplishment obtained by very few within the profession.

Commitment to quality legal service is what separates him from average attorneys. This is why Craig handles a select number of clients at any given time to ensure each of them receives his personal attention. He will respond to your needs quickly and decisively and is always just a phone call away. This level of dedication is hard to find in a legal professional.

He is a Graduate of St. John Fisher College where he majored in Economics and minored in Political Science. He graduated from the Albany Law School of Union University where he concentrated in Civil Litigation. During this time he was recognized as a semi-finalist in the Senior Prize-Trial Competition. He is also a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and the New York Nursing Home Litigation Group.
