Summary

Hunter Craft graduated as the Casey Presidential Scholar from Baylor University with a B.B.A. in Finance, and earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Baylor University School of Law. He began his legal career in litigation defense of business and catastrophic injury disputes at Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P. (now Norton Rose Fulbright LLP). He then refocused his career to advocate for those harmed by others, joining Watts Law Firm, later becoming Watts Guerra Craft. In 2013, after nearly 14 years in the legal profession, he founded Craft Law Firm, P.C., and continues to represent victims of catastrophic injuries and their families in transportation, product liability, and workplace tragedies, and individuals and businesses in commercial disputes. He has litigated on behalf of clients in more than 30 states in cases against more than 50 different Fortune 500 and Global 500 companies.

Focusing primarily on product liability, trucking, construction accident, and other catastrophic injury litigation, Mr. Craft has represented victims in cases against large corporate defendants including Alcoa, BF Goodrich, BMW, Bridgestone/Firestone, Chrysler, Coastal Corporation, Continental Tire, Cummins, Daewoo, Discount Tire, Dorel Juvenile Products, Ford, General Motors, Gilbane, Goodyear, Hilcorp Energy, Honda, International Truck & Engine, Isuzu, Land Rover, Mattel, Mazda, Michelin, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Titan Tire, Toyota, TRW, TXU, Union Pacific, Volkswagen, and Witco, among others. For those efforts, the Texas Super Lawyers recognized Mr. Craft as a “Rising Star” in the state’s legal community in 2004. Later that year, at age 29, Mr. Craft was himself elected a “Texas Super Lawyer” by members of the Texas bar, making him the youngest such recipient in the history of the award.
