    For 40 years, Chuck has been a leader in the family law bar with the highest of professional standards and ethics. While zealously working for own clients as a litigator, Chuck has also risen to the top of the field of divorce mediators. Chuck is also at the forefront of Collaborative Divorce professionals in the metropolitan area. His dedication to the rights of his clients while at the same time minimizing the damage that can be caused by the divorce process itself is unsurpassed.
