| Consulted Attorney
Smart, Experienced and Caring
Attorney Charles provided invaluable help in my analysis of whether or not a certain Appellate- Supreme Court matter was worth the time and expense, and what some of the key factual factors in the case are. She is caring, passionate, listens, articulate, and has the natural motive to be helpful and practical.
