About Attorney Craig A. McCarthy


Craig McCarthy has been a resident of Florida (with some time off for United States Army service that brought him to other places) since 1979.  Mr. McCarthy spent his adolescence in what used to be a sleepy beach town in Brevard County and loves being a Floridian.  Craig attended the United States Military Academy at West Point and graduated in 1989.  He went on to serve as a commissioned Army Field Artillery officer stationed first at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and then Berlin, Germany, as part of the since-disbanded Berlin Brigade.  He left active duty military service in 1992, after the fall of the Berlin War and the end of the first Gulf War to go to law school at Florida State University in Tallahassee.  After the September 11th attacks on our nation, Craig got back into uniform as an Army reservist.


In his law practice, beginning in 1995, Mr. McCarthy has worked for a county legal aid, serving those who could not afford legal representation in difficult matters.  Then, he returned to Tallahassee.  There he worked for state government in the area of medical/health and professional license regulation and later as an employment/civil rights attorney in a private firm.  Relocating to Orlando in January, 2001, Craig began the most challenging period of his legal career working to protect abused, neglected, and abandoned children.  With hundreds of trials behind him, Mr. McCarthy is excited about this latest phase of his career working for himself and running his own law office.


Craig is happily married to a gifted woman with a Masters of Social Work and has a marvelous teenage son.  He loves living in Central Florida, but appreciates how alarming and difficult legal problems can be, and how much of a difference the services of an engaged and talented attorney can make.  The Law Office of Craig A. McCarthy strives to provide quality advice on when to walk away from a problem, and when to fight.  It is all about results, and solving problems, and not all about collecting fees.
