About Charles

Learn Charles’s areas of practice.

For nearly 35 years I've taken pride in my work as it gives me the chance to help people who need it and protect them from harm. Whether it’s a young couple buying their first home, a person arrested for OUI, or a father who can’t work because he’s been hurt in an accident, people can feel overwhelmed and downright scared. Every day I have the chance to help: to let them know that they are not alone. I love what I do.I never expected to enjoy being a lawyer. Growing up Irish Catholic in Northampton, MA, I wanted to be a cop so I could help protect others. But after a few years of police work, I realized it wasn't for me, and so I went back to school to became a lawyer.
 
I specialize in criminal and civil trials as well as real estate purchases and refinances. If you've been arrested for OUI, drug possession, or other offense; if you've been hurt in an accident; if you're looking to buy, sell or refinance your house; if you need guidance organizing your small business -- I can help.

The best lawyer
Charles is an excellent attorney and a man of great integrity, honesty, and kindness. He is amazing at his job and has helped countless people like me who needed legal help. Charles is a very understanding lawyer who listens and cares about people. He was able to get my civil case dismissed and was extremely efficient. I am so grateful I found his practice he Is a family man, and a caring human being. I greatly recommend his legal services. Charles also inspired me as a person, he is extremely positive and very reliable.

Best Lawyer in Town
Mr. Maguire is truly spectacular at what he does. When I was facing an underage OUI case I was scared stiff, but he was able to calmly look at the facts of the case and handle it with efficiency. Whenever I wanted an update on what was happening or if I needed to make an appearance, he was able to accommodate me and give me heads up. He turned what was essentially a life altering charge into a situation that I could handle and afford.

Excellent!
Charlie was extraordinarily helpful in my case. He has such a great relationship with everyone in the courthouse and everyone knows him by name. He was honest and upfront about the whole experience. He was nothing like you expect a lawyer to be and I mean that in the best way. He was trustworthy and would recommend him to anyone.

A great man and lawyer
When my son found himself in trouble with an OUI we were scared and didn't know where to turn. On the recommendation of my mother who had know Charlie for years prior we reached out to him on a Sunday night by phone and email. He responded within an hour and ever since then he has been available for any questions we might have or just for a bit of reassurance. He worked hard and I'm pleased to say he was able to get any charges against my son dismissed. I truly think Charlie is angel and works hard for anyone who needs his services. If anyone were to ask me for a lawyer recommendation he would be the one!! As a mom I can't thank him enough for all he did for my son and for me.

Attorney Maguire is great
We were entering a real estate transaction and felt out of our depth in legal concerns. Attorney Maguire was courteous, attentive and thoroughly knowledgeable in this area of law. He listened, considered, then began... not instructing, rather offering different options and paths to consider. We are delighted with his approach to decision making: educate, clarify, then advise. We understand he is in our corner. We will be working with Attorney Maguire in any future legal need. John and Eileen Ferriter

Charlie’s number 1 fan
My husband and I worked with Charlie buying our first home. He was recommended to us by my parents who have worked with him many times and he did not disappoint. Him and his assistant Corinna were so helpful and made this scary process seem like a breeze. He was so careful checking all our paperwork and even found gaps in our purchase and sale agreement and added an addendum that covered all our bases even a month after buying the house when the seller was looking for more money. Would absolutely recommend Charlie to anyone and will definitely use him in the future.

for house closing
Charlie just handled a house closing for us, and it was great dealing with him and his office (Corinna is the best). I would highly recommend using him for real estate transactions. We also in the process of building a house, and Charlie is doing a great job on that as well (it is ongoing, until the house is finished).

Wonderful and Diligent Attorney
Attorney Maguire has represented me in several real estate transactions and I strongly recommend him to anyone needing a real estate attorney! He's incredibly knowledgeable, works hard on behalf of his clients and is just a pleasant guy to be around. If you have to work with a lawyer, you just can't find much better than Charlie! He always made himself available to answer any questions I had and followed through 100% of the time. I highly recommend him!

Professional and Personable
my experience working with Attorney Charles Maguire on the purchase of my house this year has been extremely pleasant unlike others in the past. He is very helpful and easy to work with in many ways, generous with his advice and always has his client's best interest in mind. He and his staff have made this transaction an easy and smooth process for all parties involved. Also as a first time landlord who is trying to navigate through the complexity of the rental laws in Massachusetts, Mr Maguire even went out of his way to help me to draft a lease agreement for my investment property. I can say without any reservation that what really set him apart from other lawyers that I worked with before is that he truly cares about what he does and genuinely wants to help his clients. I feel more like working with a friend than just an attorney who is also knowledgeable and skillful at getting the job done for me.

Great service
He was representing my wife and I on a closing of our mortgage. Not only he answered every question we had, but he also took his time to walk us trough all the paperwork and answered every single question we had. In addition, I later contacted him about a delay on automatic payments that were scheduled and he also helped me right away with the issue. I have not seen such service from any law office, They are outstanding.

DUI
I found myself in an unfortunate situation one weekend. I made a call to a prominent acquaintance in the law field, without hesitation he told me to call Attorney Charles M. Maguire, he is just the man for the job. Boy was he right. I spoke with Charlie twice on a Sunday, it was also Fathers Day. He made time for me, calmed me and explained what I could expect in court the next morning. Immediately after my court appearance Charlie met with me in his downtown Northampton office. In the weeks to come Charlie always had to for my questions and concerns and kept me updated on what he was doing concerning my case. I was set on accepting my fate and putting the situation behind me. Charlie convinced me I had a good chance of getting the charges against me suppressed. Charlie hit the ground running. He obtained police reports, videos, and even went the extra mile to go to the location of the "incident" and get the lay of the land and take photos. Together we went over the reports, videos and evidence. Charlie was very impressive when I got my day in court, he really knows his way around a court room. in record time he had the charges against me suppressed. If plan A had failed Charlie already had plans B and C figured out as the next steps to take. A relationship with Attorney Charles M. Maguire is more then lawyer and client, he also becomes a friend. I cant thank him enough.

Great Attorney
Charlie Maguire is an excellent attorney and a great guy. He recently did a great job for me in a difficult case in which I was being taken advantage of, and we won. He approaches his cases not only as an attorney, but also as an investigator. I was really impressed with his attention to detail. He is always available to answer questions on different issues that arise. I honestly feel the law and his clients are more important to him than just collecting a fee. Charlie Maquire is my lawyer.

I would highly recommend Charles Maguire
Charles Maguire is a highly competent lawyer in his field. Not only did he reassure me right away that everything was going to be okay, but as my case went on and was pushed to a trial he continued to reassure me that we would win my case. He was calm, kept me updated on the status of things and knew what he was talking about. Attorney Maguire was knowledgeable about DUI cases and explained anything I had questions about. While in the court room he was effective and I felt confident in his abilities. I would recommend Attorney Maguire to anyone who found themselves in need of a lawyer for DUI and would expect that he would handle other cases just as competently as he did mine.

Supremely talented plaintiff's attorney
Attorney Maguire was a godsend for me when I had an employment related matter blindside me. He stepped in immediately and sorted everything out with great skill, and a very personable style.
