Charlie started his legal career as a public defender in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. During his ten years as a public defender, Charlie represented clients charged with everything from simple driving offenses, driving while intoxicated, simple assaults, domestic assaults, felony assaults, sale and possession of narcotics, thefts, sex offenses, child pornography, and murder. The board of Public Defense recognized Charlie two years in a row as the attorney in the district with the most jury trials.

Charlie left the Public Defender's Office and joined a small firm practicing criminal defense and civil litigation. He eventually joined a large Minneapolis criminal defense firm where he worked for over three years. Charlie left the large firm to start his own firm, determining that a smaller, more individualized approach would provide clients with a better defense and most likely achieve better results.

Charlie also has considerable appellate experience. He has argued and won cases at the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Charlie has also served the legal community in numerous roles. He served as a Board member and as the President of the Ramsey County Bar Association. Charlie currently serves as the Bar Association's representative to the American Bar Association House of Delegates. He also serves on the Board of the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Charlie has previously worked as an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of law. Charlie has also been recognized by his peers as a Super Lawyer.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
