Craig began his efforts in assisting non-profit and philanthropic organizations through his practice with Craig Kyle Hemphill Law Offices PLLC. His non-profit legal practice mainly focuses on advising non-profit and philanthropic entities in transactional and compliance matters relating to operational concerns and administrative functions regarding licensing, leasing, performance, construction, and operating agreements. He also assists such entities with formation and compliance formalities regarding 501(c)(3) matters to assure organizational corporate compliance in differentiating between core non-profit affairs and for-profit segments.
In addition to pursuing his passion of providing legal assistance to non-profit and philanthropic organizations, Craig enjoys notoriety nationally and throughout Texas for being a visionary social justice and legal scholar. He has established an impressive collection of relationships within several venues of humanities and legal academes, legal professionals, ecumenical, political and business leaders as a matter of cross-industry concerns. Craig leverages such relationships to engage effectively in social, economic, legal and spiritual development initiatives within not only inner city communities, but also in any marginalized and/or uninformed community—whether majority or minority based in demography. His wealth of corporate transactions and sophisticated business acumen are just a few keys to his successful record of accomplishment. Craig also uses his scholarship in law, theology and business publications, speeches, seminars and public appearances, to focus attention on fostering understanding and acceptance amongst diverse communities.
