Charles Scholle

also known as Peter Charles Scholle

About me

I have practiced law since 1995.  I am a native north Georgian who received two degrees from the University of Georgia.  I am married with two children.  My hobbies include travelling, fishing, running and trivia competitions. 


About the Firm


For over two decades, Scholle Law has earned a reputation for professionalism, compassion and a tireless dedication to our clients. We take great pride in our expertise and depth of legal knowledge, legal procedure and trial skills. We bring these skills to bear in obtaining outstanding results for our clients. Powerful, well-funded forces push against Georgia citizens and families -- and those forces can be business entities, insurance companies, government actors or quasi-governmental agencies.  Our firm has excelled in defeating these forces through determination, resourcefulness and by simply working harder.


Our firm accepts very few cases. Unlike high-volume practices, we believe a client is better served by individual attention to their needs and the specific details of their case.  Accordingly, we are able to focus our intellectual and financial resources on a few matters, maximizing the results and ensuring a more satisfying representation for both client and attorney.


We care greatly about our clients. Although our practice areas are situational and often do not require repeat representation once a matter is resolved, we remain in contact with most of our past clients. Legal matters can be very stressful. They often raise uncomfortable realities causing one to make important life decisions at vulnerable moments. It is important to us that our clients feel that we stand by them every step of the way as counselors of the law. We are honored to represent victims of accidents and injury and to help them regain their lives after an accident.
