Mark T. Craig
- Mark T. Craig played on the Baylor golf team for two years before transferring to SMU. Today, he still navigates challenging obstacles and uses his experience as a member of SettlePou’s Insurance Defense and Nonsubscriber Defense practices.
Mark focuses on representing nonsubscribers—employers throughout the state of Texas who have elected to opt out of the Texas Workers’ Compensation system. He has obtained findings of no negligence on behalf of multiple employers before various arbitrators, including serving as lead counsel in Ezernack v. Granbury Youth Service, No. C2010-190, 355th District, in Hood County, Texas.
Nearly all of Mark’s practice is dedicated to Nonsubscriber Defense, making him a highly knowledgeable, efficient, and effective advocate for his clients. He believes it is important to protect the rights and interests of employers who have chosen to be nonsubscribers. He is keenly aware of the challenges employers face when a lawsuit is initiated and the intricacies of defending these cases. Mark is very responsive, keeping clients informed of developments on a routine basis.
