About me

Although I'm not sure exactly what it means to be a "typical" attorney, I don't think I fit the usual stereotype. My years of work in the public and private sectors, including extensive work overseas in Russia and surrounding markets, have given me a unique perspective on handling client matters, especially with foreign clients. I work collaboratively with clients to solve their issues with a focus on customer service. It is only due to satisfied clients that we have built our practice to where it is and continue to grow from here.


When I'm not in the office, I love to travel. And of course ski. If you can strap it to my feet, I'm game. Water skiing. Downhill skiing. Cross country skiing. As long as my back holds out, I'll keep on skiing!

  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    Charles has demonstrated his knowledge of both lemon law and auto sales fraud issues time and again to consumer lawyers both in and outside of Virginia. His research abilities are remarkable - he knows how to find out things about cars from little resources that still surprise me but can make winning your case much easier because of it. He's smart, he's good, and he cares about helping consumers get justice. That's exactly what a consumer needs when they have fallen victim to owning a lemon car or a deceptive auto sales practice. I endorse and recommend him.
