Craig Joseph Poff
Craig Joseph Poff has practiced law in Beaufort, South Carolina since 1990 and has been engaged in solo practice since 1993, serving literally thousands of local residents, in matters large and small, since that time. He was first admitted to the Bar in the State of Maryland, in 1979, and later that year to the Bar of the District of Columbia. Upon relocation to South Carolina in 1990, he was admitted to practice by the Supreme Court for South Carolina, and immediately thereafter, the U.S. District Court. He remains an active member of the Maryland Bar and the District of Columbia Bar, both local and Federal.
Craig was born in Washington, D.C., explaining the Nationals and Redskins items you will see at the office, but has lived in the South Carolina Lowcountry, exclusively, since 1990, is married to Yolanda Berg Poff and Father to Emily Berg Poff-Dandridge, who is College of Charleston Class of 2011, now living in Richmond, Virginia. Craig and Yolanda met literally on stage at the Kennedy Center with the Washington Opera, when paired together as a couple by Gian Carlo Menotti in “La Boheme”. Music is still the theme of the Office, with many instruments on hand and perhaps the only Law Office where you will find an Upright Grand Piano.
