Charley Good grew up in Alexandria, Minnesota.  His strong family and community ties make Alexandria the ideal place to practice law.  Charley graduated magna cum laude from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Legal Studies and Philosophy.  He received his Juris Doctorate from William Mitchell in St. Paul, Minnesota, graduating cum laude.

While attending William Mitchell, Charley made numerous appearances in district court as a certified student attorney logging over 300 hours of courtroom experience. In addition, Charley is a qualified neutral mediator, arbitrator and family mediator under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice.

Prior to college, Charley was instrumental in founding the Douglas County Teen Court program through an internship with the Douglas County Attorney's Office.

  • David W. Jacobsen

    I endorse Attorney Charles Good. Mr. Good works exceptionally hard to achieve the best possible results for his criminal law clients. We have discussed legal theories on numerous cases and he has shown tremendous creativity in poking holes in the government's cases against his clients. He does not hesitate to challenge prosecutors and take a case to trial if a fair resolution is not offered. I endorse Mr. Good to anyone facing criminal charges in the Alexandria area.
