Charles handles each case as if his own family member is directly involved. Though many of his clients are businesses and professionals, each case feels personal and relatable. Many cases require detailed reporting and risk assessment, and his clients appreciate the level of attention and dedication they receive.

As a member of the firm’s Business Litigation Service Group, Charles handles civil rights and personal injury cases, Federal 1983 claims, municipal matters, insurance exposure and data security issues.

Outside the office, Charles volunteers at the Sojourner Family Peace Center, which serves victims of domestic violence and abuse. He aids survivors of domestic violence by providing pro bono representation, connecting them with legal aid, and by being a part of their support group that listens to their stories and fosters healing.
