About Charles

Learn Charles’s areas of practice.

I represent and counsel clients in numerous areas of law (over 36 years) and serve as a Circuit Court Mediator (guiding parties to settlement of their litigation or insurance claims) (over 10 years).  My extensive litigation experience, being "around the block" in the legal field, enhances my skills as a mediator, and my mediation training/experience enhances my skills as a legal advocate and counselor.   

Please contact me for ANY type of legal issue or advice.  You will be able to speak to me personally, usually within 24 hours of your call, if not immediately.  Free consultations for personal injury, wrongful death, police brutality, criminal defense cases and some other matters, and reasonable consultation fees for commercial, employment, land use/zoning and general practice matters.  If there is an issue that we don't handle, we most likely can refer you to another reputable lawyer who does.  

I have represented clients in just about every type of court (civil, criminal, family, domestic violence, juvenile, probate, State, Federal, trial, appellate, etc.), as well as before many county and municipal boards and Federal, State, and local administrative agencies (such as zoning boards, code enforcement, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, Fla. Public Employees Relations Commission, and Fla. Division of Administrative Hearings).  

We believe that our clients deserve our personal and timely attention. We communicate with our clients to address their concerns and keep them informed on the progress of their matter.  Our clients depend on us to aggressively pursue their goals, leaving no stone unturned.  Whether in the courtroom or in our research, pleadings, and discovery (search for information), we strive to find ways to best advance the client’s cause.

Great attorney
Mr. Baron was better than excellent in helping me with my case. I am a man with very little faith in the justice system but Mr. Baron has given me some hope that there are still good people left in the world & I am forever in his gratitude. I highly recommend Mr. Baron.

Honesty, Integrity, Zealous Advocate
Charles Baron did a superior job representing me and my neighbors in a heavily-litigated land use & zoning case against Miami-Dade County and a developer. The County had approved a high-rise medical building that would have towered over our single-family homes. Our pleas to change the plan to protect our property values and privacy were ignored. We knew we needed the help of a great litigator and turned to Charles after seeing his track record of prevailing in similar cases. He filed lawsuits challenging the County's approval on several legal grounds, including under-estimating the traffic impact and conflict with the County Master Plan. The developer hired a "top-gun" large Miami law firm. Charles was cleaning their clock at trial, causing the Judge, in the middle of trial, to say, "I strongly suggest that the parties try to get this case settled, RIGHT NOW!" The developer then gave in and changed the plan to a low-rise that would fit our neighborhood. I highly recommend and trust Charles!

Mr. Baron's Impact on Our Non-Profit Organization
Mr. Baron represented our non-profit organization in a contract dispute with a technology service provider that was litigated in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, with an excellent outcome. He has also provided very useful advice on a number of legal issues.

A GREAT LITIGATION LAWYER
I hired Mr. Baron to represent me on claims against the City of Fort Lauderdale because I was the victim of false arrest and other police misconduct. The City initially denied all my claims and fought the case tooth and nail, with court skirmishes in which Mr. Baron wiped the floor with the City's lawyers. They then saw the handwriting on the wall and made a decent settlement offer, resolving the case without needing a trial. I strongly recommend Mr. Baron for any legal issue.

Valuable Expert in the Legal Field
Charles was excellent in consulting me with my case. He was extremely attentive to detail and knowledgeable. He understood my needs and concerns and addressed all of them. To me, this was more than a consultation but a valuable and informative experience that prepared me for the next steps. I highly recommend Charles, his services are well worth the support and guidance he provides from expert experience.

Trustworthy & Sound
Charles Baron offers a well-rounded menu of legal services where his expertise consistently rises to the top. He provided excellent counsel to me regarding a breached contract and defamation. He took the fear out of the room when people with deeper pockets than mine attempted to threaten me out of my intellectual property and livelihood. They were no match for his sound counsel, which is why I continue to consult him and have referred others as well.

City cemetery issue
I had some issues with the city cemetery due to negligence on their part and I didn’t know what course of action to take. I contacted Mr. Baron for a consultation and with his recommendations, the issue was fixed in my favor. Thank you Mr. Baron, may your kindness be rewarded tenfold.

Charles Baron Personal Review
Mr. Baron did a great job representing my company in a case against a marketing company that breached its contract to give my company marketing leads. We prevailed and obtained a money judgment, and the defendant company then incredibly refused to pay the judgment debt. Mr. Baron then went after the defendant's assets, garnishing its bank account, and the bank had to pay us the judgment debt PLUS attorney's fees, court costs, and interest.

Attorney Baron represented me on ADA lawsuit against my former employer. He is extremely knowledgeable, tenacious, and readily available to answer any and all questions. He responded to every email, phone call and was never to busy to answer questions. He was compassionate, and allowed me to feel supported. He is fair and honest. If you need a great attorney, make sure you choose Attorney Baron.

Absolutely one of the most professional, ethical, and thorough attorneys I have ever encountered. Top in South Florida.
Mr. Charles Baron handled a case that was very complicated. As a result of Mr. Baron joining the team and with his expertise and patience, the matter swiftly came to a positive resolution. This was a direct result of his unwavering level of commitment and patience. I would strongly recommend that you consider him for your matters. I would say absolutely one of the top ten litigating attorneys in South Florida. I'm one of his biggest fans!

Mr Martinez
Mr. Baron represented my company when it was wrongfully sued by someone who blamed my company for something a different company had done. He was able to convince the other side to drop the case against my company. He had reasonable fees. Before I initially consulted Mr. Baron, I consulted another attorney who quoted me up-front fees that were more than double what Mr. Baron charged me for the case. Mr. Baron was very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend him for all legal assistance. Some of the things that impressed me the most were his honesty and willingness to help. He gave me confidence and a faster result than what we expected. Super professional. Thank you Mr. Charles!

Mr
Mr. Baron did a great job of representing me in a lawsuit against me by an insurance company that sued me after someone else driving my car caused an accident. The insurance company went after me for the money that they had allegedly paid to other other driver. After Mr. Baron kept pounding the insurance company for documentation for their claim, they eventually gave up and dropped the lawsuit against me. I would highly recommend Mr. Baron for any type of lawsuit or claim

Low key, high competence.
My son was wronged by a dishonest employer. Friends recommended lawyers who ended up declining our case due to it's complexity. We found Charles on Avvo. He researched the law and agreed to take our case. He listened to us, he kept us aware of the progress of our case, and he shut down opposing counsel when he threatened to countersue us. Charles politely schooled him on the law, letting him know that was not an option. That's when I knew we had the right lawyer.

Mr. Baron is a qualified honest attorney
A hothead Florida state trooper was sicced on me by a dishonest Publix manager, his best friend. The trooper and an accomplice physically attacked me and illegally arrested me. Disregarding his oath to obey the law. Both the Publix manager and the trooper refused to take responsibility for their crimes. In addition, Publix corporation absolutely failed ethically to admit their employee's crime or to do the right thing after, under the belief that the law does not apply to them. Mr. Baron hung in there through all of their delaying tactics and their lies and eventually obtained a settlement. I commend Mr. Baron. He is an honest lawyer. It is very difficult to go up against police who break the law.
