Craig E. Smith

Craig is “Of Counsel” to the Firm. His current practice consists of family law matters. In addition to his private practice, for the past four years, as an Adjunct Professor, Craig has taught a seminar course entitled “Marital Property and Divorce Litigation” at the University of Maryland Law School. Craig is a graduate of Towson High School (1966), Yale College (1970) and Yale Law School (1973). He clerked for United States Circuit Judge Richard T. Rives in Montgomery, Alabama (1973 -1974). He then began the private practice of law at Venable LLP, where he worked in the fields of civil litigation and family law as an associate (1974-1980) and later as a partner (1981-2009). He joined the Firm as “Of Counsel” in 2009.

When not working, Craig is a believer in exercise, especially his long-term enjoyment of jogging and his more recent experience with personal training. He enjoys reading mysteries and The New Yorker. He is married to Mary-Beth (an LCSW-C with a private practice) and he has two sons and three grandchildren.
