Charlie Douglas was born and raised in Palatka, Florida. After graduating valedictorian of his high school class, Charlie attended the University Of Florida Warrington College Of Business, where he served as a Student Government Cabinet Director and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Business Administration.

During law school at the University of Florida, Charlie served as Editor-in-Chief of the Florida Law Review and graduated second in his class of 211 students. Charlie was also inducted as a member of the Order of the Coif and Florida Blue Key.

In 2007, Charlie gained national recognition for his fight to free a Texas man, Tyrone Brown, who had been sentenced to life in prison after testing positive once for marijuana while on probation. Hearing that Mr. Brown had already served nearly 17 years of the life sentence, Charlie launched a lengthy grass-roots advocacy campaign that resulted in Mr. Brown's Freedom.

Charlie has also fought against the tobacco industry and was previously named by the Lawton Chiles Foundation as Florida's Youth Advocate of the Year. For those efforts, the American Legacy Foundation asked Charlie to serve as a national spokesperson to help expose the truth about tobacco company tactics.

Charlie's passionate representation and advocacy for his clients led Florida Super Lawyers Magazine to recognize Charlie as a "Rising Star," which is an award reserved for less than 2.5% of attorneys in Florida under the age of 40.

Charlie supports the community by volunteering with Haven Hospice, Putnam First Cancer Fund, The ARC, Kiwanis of the Azalea City, Boy Scouts of America, and Boxer Aid & Rescue Coalition. Charlie is an instrument-rated pilot, and in his spare time he enjoys flying, hunting, fishing, and all water sports.

Family Trust and Corporate Review
I highly recommend Attorney Charlie Douglas. His integrity, wise council, highly ethical practices and professionalism were imperative to developing our Family Trust and Corporate Review. His excellent communication skills guided and reassured us through each process of development. Mr. Douglas did a superb job building our Family Trust and preparing a comprehensive business review of our company insurance policies and liability exposure. His ability to explain legal issues and provide us with relevant options and professional advice was without rival. He is very responsive, thorough, efficient and works quickly and diligently. Mr. Douglas demonstrated an impressive depth of knowledge in a wide range of topics that left us confident in the results. He is personable and easy to talk to and his skills went above and beyond our expectations. I recommend Charlie Douglas and his firm to anyone needing legal counsel.

Best Attorney in Jacksonville
Charlie was very professional and clearly worked for his clients. He kept me informed every step of the way and his legal team was excellent. He is the epitome of an attorney that is honest, has his client's best interest and strives to make sure that his clients do not settle for "less than they deserve".

the best lawyer
Charlie was the best lawyer that I have had to deal with. He was great at listening to my concerns and was very sympathetic. He gave me great guidance and kept me up to date constantly. He even called just to check in to see how I was doing. During my mediation, he was great at keeping me calm and composed even when the lawyer for the defendant was saying mean things about me. We got a great outcome and were able . To settle for more than I expected. I was relived when it was all over, I also was sad because Charlie felt like part of my family.

Accident Injury Case
We were involved in a motorcycle accident in Kentucky. Although we were found not at fault, I had received a head injury and could not remember the accident or three days following. Being unable to make informed decisions, I called Harrell and Harrell upon advice of a friend and Charles was assigned our case. He immediately responded from 800 miles away, worked tirelessly on our case. He insured that we were completely protected throughout our ordeal. We put our trust in Charles, and his firm, and it was trust well placed.
