also known as Charles M. Baron, P.A.
WEBSITE: www.baronjustice.com. I represent and counsel clients in numerous areas of law, and I serve as a Circuit Court Mediator, helping to guide parties to a settlement in civil cases and insurance claim disputes. My extensive litigation experience, being "around the block" in the legal field, enhances my skills as a mediator, and my mediation training/experience enhances my skills as a legal advocate and counselor.
You may contact me for ANY type of legal issue or advice. You will be able to speak to me personally, usually within 24 hours of your call, if not immediately. Free consultations for personal injury, wrongful death, criminal, and police brutality cases, as well as for some other matters, and otherwise very reasonable consultation fees. If there is an issue that we don't handle, I can likely refer you to another reputable lawyer who does.
I have been practicing law in South Florida for over 29 years, handling claims & litigation in many practice areas. I have represented clients in just about every type of court (civil, criminal, family, domestic violence, juvenile, probate, State, Federal, trial, appellate, etc.), as well as before many county and municipal boards and Federal, State, and local administrative agencies (including zoning boards, code enforcement, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, Fla. Public Employees Relations Commission, Fla. Division of Administrative Hearings, etc.).
We believe that our clients deserve our personal and timely attention. We communicate with our clients to address their concerns and keep them informed on the progress of their matter. Our clients depend on us to aggressively pursue their goals, leaving no stone unturned. Whether in the courtroom or in our research, pleadings, and discovery (search for information), we strive to find ways to best advance the client’s cause.
***The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask me about my qualifications and experience.***
