Craig H. Kaufman


After more than 30 years of practice, Craig has developed several practice area strengths, allowing him to serve a variety of clients.

Native American Housing

There may be as few as 40 or 50 attorneys in the United States with Craig’s level of experience serving Native Americans with respect to federal housing issues. He advises tribal leadership in negotiating with HUD as well as with Congress and its appropriations functions on proposed laws, regulations, rules, and amendments to rules concerning federal housing laws. Craig also represents tribes in matters relating to gaming and facilities defense.

Construction Litigation

General contactors comprise the majority of clients with whom Craig works in the construction litigation area. He handles disputes with public and private owners as well as with subcontractors and materials suppliers. Craig also manages bid protests and change order, work quality, and payment disputes.


Craig represents financial institutions in cases involving loan enforcement and foreclosures, almost entirely within the commercial sector (such as resorts, shopping malls, and apartment complexes).

Physician Groups

A variety of litigation matters come to Craig from physician groups, including disputes with former partners and hospitals.
