Craig Weaver is an outdoor enthusiast with a spirit for adventure and a reputation for being a tenacious and effective litigator for his clients in the courtroom. Practicing law in Truckee, Lake Tahoe, Reno, and the Lost Sierra, Craig is an experienced litigator and transactional attorney. Craig takes pride in his attention to detail and in fashioning the best result for each of his clients while always being mindful of each client’s individual needs. Craig is a Certified Family Law Specialist, certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. After devoting nearly a decade to practicing law almost exclusively in high-conflict and high-net-worth family law litigation matters, Craig has transitioned his practice to have more of an emphasis on corporate and business law matters. Craig is able to quickly recognize and define the issues his clients face and then work with his clients to develop strategies on how to best deal with each individual issue. While the legal process may often seem daunting and intimidating, Craig takes pride in helping his clients understand the process and guiding them through to a favorable resolution.

In 2018, Craig was selected as one of the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys in California by the American Jurist Institute. In 2017 & 2018 & 2019, he was named as a “Rising Star” in Northern California by Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers and was also recognized as being one of the 10 Best Family Law Attorneys in Northern California for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Legal Counsel. In 2019, Craig was admitted as a Fellow of the National Association of Distinguished Counsel which honors the Nation's Top 1% of attorneys. In 2017, Craig was recognized as being one of the top 40 attorneys under the age of 40 in Northern California by The National Advocates, and in 2015 he was named as one of the Top Family Law Lawyers in Sacramento by Sacramento Magazine, received the Avvo Client’s Choice Award, and was nominated as a National Lawyer of Distinction in Family Law. A year earlier in 2014, Craig received an Honor Advocate award from the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers of Northern California for his performance at the Northern California Trial Practicum in San Francisco.

Craig works with many local business owners to help them establish, grow, and protect their businesses, and he also has considerable experience with highly complex, high-dollar, and high-asset divorce cases, often including issues concerning the valuation of family owned businesses. Additionally, he has substantial experience with multi-jurisdictional cases involving complex matters concerning the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”) and Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (“UIFSA”). Craig believes legal matters are a three-step process that require patience and open communication between an attorney and client in order to be successful. He believes the first step is understanding the ground rules. The second step is developing a plan of action, and the third step is properly implementing the plan. When asked about the legal process, Craig said, “There are times when it will seem like the opposing party is not willing to negotiate and there will be no way to avoid going before a judge to have a matter resolved. Always take the high-road, be patient, be open to negotiations, and if the other party is being unreasonable then the judge will likely see that, too.”

As a litigator, Craig has established a successful track-record, including helping to facilitate favorable settlements for his clients. He has successfully argued cases and motions before the Superior Courts of Placer, Nevada, El Dorado, Sacramento, Plumas, Sierra, Alpine, Tuolumne, San Francisco, Sonoma, Alameda, Yolo, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Riverside, Orange, and Los Angeles counties in the State of California, in the Eastern District of California, as well as in district court in Washoe County, Nevada, and Kootenai County, Idaho.

Being a native of North Idaho and Eastern Washington, Craig received his Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree from the University of Idaho in 2009. He also received a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Business with an emphasis in Marketing and a minor in Public Relations from the same institution. Craig graduated magna cum laude near the top of his class and served as the president and executive director of various organizations while pursuing his undergraduate degree. In addition, in 2004, Craig was named the Outstanding Business Student of the Year by the prestigious Beta Gamma Sigma honor society, the business equivalent to Phi Beta Kappa for liberal arts and science graduates, and is a recipient of the University of Idaho Alumni Award for Excellence.

Prior to law school and before joining MOBO, Craig served as the director of marketing for an international travel company based out of El Dorado Hills, California, and also gained international experience working as a program director in the Bahamas, Mexico, and Canada for WorldPass Travel Group, LLC & International Student Tours, Inc. During law school, Craig gained substantial experience as a legal intern at Paine Hamblen, LLP, based out of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Beck & Poorman, LLC, based out of Hayden, Idaho, both highly respected firms in North Idaho and Eastern Washington. As a third year law student, Craig gained notoriety by successfully arguing a case before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco while serving as a member of the University of Idaho Legal Aid Clinic. Upon completion of his law degree, Craig returned to Northern California and founded American Dream Management, LLC, a California limited liability company providing management services to common-interest development community associations. Soon thereafter in 2009, Craig began practicing law as a solo practitioner before joining Cordell & Cordell, P.C., one of the nation’s largest domestic relations litigation law firms, where he served as the lead attorney for the Sacramento office. In 2014, he joined Bartholomew & Wasznicky, LLP to better serve his clients as part of the most experienced family law firm in Northern California, and in 2016 transitioned his practice to MOBO Law to expand his practice base and increase his presence in Truckee, Lake Tahoe, Reno, and the Lost Sierra.

In his time away from the office, Craig enjoys mountain biking and spending time with his family. He is also an avid alpine skier and competitive triathlete and endurance runner having completed Ironman Lake Tahoe, Ironman Canada, Ironman Coeur d’Alene, XTERRA Lake Tahoe, XTERRA Tahoe City, and the Big Sur Marathon, among other races.

Craig is MOBO.
