Prior to joining the firm, Charles worked as an associate at a real estate and civil litigation firm in Chicago where he focused primarily in the areas of personal injury, real estate transactions, evictions, corporate transactions, and commercial litigation. 

Charles has successfully represented countless clients in commercial litigation cases including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, partnership disputes, business torts, residential and commercial real estate disputes, and other corporate litigation matters. He also represents several property management companies and landlords and handles all their landlord/tenant matters and evictions.

Charles’ ability to handle both transactions and litigation makes him unique in that he has seen what transactional issues are most commonly litigated over. This experience gives Charles the ability to be proactive, rather than reactive, and protect his clients during the drafting and negotiating stage of transactions to put the client in the best position possible.
