Craig DoRozario – Litigation Lawyer – Director

Potts Lawyers > Our Criminal & Litigation Lawyers > Craig DoRozario – Litigation Lawyer – Director

An experienced and respected practitioner, Craig leads the litigation team of Potts Lawyers.

Having practiced exclusively in litigation for 15 years, he has a comprehensive understanding in areas of:

Craig holds a Bachelor of Business (International Business), Bachelor of Laws and a Masters of Laws majoring in commercial law.  The focus of Craig’s post graduate study was civil litigation, dispute resolution and mediation. Craig is fully qualified to represent his clients in immigration matters, being a registered migration agent (MARN 1910298).

In 2000 he joined the predecessor firm of Potts Lawyers as an articled clerk, following which he was admitted to practise in the Supreme Court of Queensland and High Court of Australia in 2002. From 2003 to mid-2008 Craig gained valuable experience working as a litigation lawyer at two of the largest litigation practices in Australia.  He attained Senior Associate level at a top tier law firm, specialising in the fields of public and product liability, as well as professional indemnity and negligence.

Craig then returned to the Gold Coast to engage in the opportunity to be part of a more personable, agile law firm, and embark on the building of his litigation practice within Potts Lawyers.

During this time, Craig further developed his niche skills, working with multifaceted matters containing elements of both criminal law and civil litigation.  Craig has obtained the technical expertise to manage complex civil litigation matters involving aspects white collar crime, resultant confiscation proceedings, and potential disciplinary implications upon professionals’ ability to continue practising in their chosen field.

He holds particular expertise in dealing with matters where a person must demonstrate they are “of good character” or a “fit and proper person” in various disciplinary matters, ranging from employment disputes (public and private sector), disputes with professional accreditation bodies and immigration disputes with the Department of Home Affairs.

Craig is confident and articulate, exercising an ethical and pragmatic approach to resolving disputes.  A true advocate and expert negotiator, his strategic and technical guidance ensures best outcomes for his wide range of clients.

In his spare time, Craig enjoys boating out on the Broadwater, which often involves taking the dog for excursions to his favourite swimming spots, and spotting dolphins if lucky.  Craig loves living the Gold Coast lifestyle, but also enjoys the occasional foodie sojourns to Brisbane when catching up with friends.  When time permits, he is also keen to explore other cities around the world, learning their history and taking in their culture.

Craig’s Testimonials

“Professionalism, quality, and responsiveness! My experience with Potts Lawyers has been nothing but amazing. I was dealing with two paralegal issues. Tom and Craig handled one while Chris handled the other. Both issues were resolved in my favour. Next time I have a legal issue, I know who to call. I’m very happy with the professionalism and responsiveness of the Potts Lawyers team. They don’t waste your time and get to the bottom of the issue quickly. Highly recommended.” 

“I had Craig from Potts Lawyers assist me with a matter recently and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Throughout the entire process I felt informed and that nothing was too much. He was calm and composed the entire time which made me relax a lot more. He achieved an excellent outcome for me which exceeded my expectations and I will always refer back to him if I require the services of Potts Lawyers in the future. Thank you again Craig.”

“I would like to thank Potts Lawyers Southport for their support and assistance. Craig was great to deal with and the whole team was prompt and professional. They exceeded my expectations and I was very happy with the result of their work. I will use them again if needed and would be happy to recommend them to anyone.”

I just want to acknowledge and thank Craig and Ashleigh DoRozario for their expertise and all they have done to help… You are wonderful people and have gone above and beyond.  Thank you both so very much, we are forever grateful. Sometimes “thank you” just doesn’t seem enough.”

“Dear Craig & Ash

 Thank you both so much for all your professional support and service over the last four (or so) years.  Your personal compassion and understanding towards me has been particularly valuable and will always be remembered with enormous gratitude.

 Words don’t seem adequate but I cannot thank you enough. Under dreadful circumstances, it has still been a privilege to get to know you both, even just a little!  I wish you both every success and happiness. 

 My very best to you always.”

“I really can’t thank you enough, all at Potts have been very open and extremely transparent whilst being very professional with me over the last 2 years. I must say you treated me with respect and I never felt I couldn’t approach you Craig with any concerns I had in relation to my case. As a lawyer, I never felt you judged me on the mistakes I made. I’m so grateful to know I had someone to turn to. To just talk about the facts of the case was really helpful. Again, thank you for your guidance, advice, your ear and the work you have done on my matter, I really have appreciated it.”

“Again, I can’t begin to thank you both SO much!!… You have both been super professional to the absolute ninth degree and I would highly, highly recommend your company, and yourselves, to anyone requiring superior level of legal service and high quality professional legal advice!”

“Great work overall. It’s been a pleasure dealing with you and the whole litigation team. I am so glad you put this behind me and look forward to the future. All the very best.”

“Please convey many thanks and gratitude to Craig for his considerable effort in preparing these submissions. Perhaps it’s ‘everyday’ stuff from him, but for me, access to his expertise and experience has offered the only chance of justice and there is simply no way to express my appreciation. The outcome whatever it proves to be will not alter my view that he has given me his very best. And thank you for the extremely kind and professional support you have extended to me throughout the process.”

“I am speechless! A settlement of $ is indeed an excellent outcome! Thank you so much for all of your help.”

“Thank you so much for all of your help. I appreciate we were the clients from hell, so thank you for your patience.”

“I’m very satisfied with your firm and the staff I had the pleasure of dealing with who made the whole process easy. Craig will be highly recommended by us.”

“I was very impressed with Craig’s performance last month and also your preparation and assistance. You have a great team and I am expecting you to perform brilliantly again.”

“Thank you for taking care of us. And for all of your hard work. Great work!”

“Dear Craig,
I have been meaning to write to you for weeks now to thank you and the team for the great job you did over a period of nearly 3 years in finally putting to rest this dispute.
It was very professionally conducted and we had good confidence in the team you put together. Thanking you.”

“Again, many, many thanks to yourself and Craig for your ongoing advice and support during what has been a very stressful period for me – your professionalism has been very, very muchly appreciated. All the best.”
