Mr. Louis-Charles exceeded my expectations.
After my car accident I was feeling helpless. I was hit by someone who ran a stop sign into oncoming traffic and at first I wasn't even thinking of hiring a lawyer. The insurance company was being very pushy and only offering a small settlement that wouldn't even cover my hospital bills. I decided I had to get a lawyer. I found Mr. Louis-Charles on a google search. After speaking with him I felt very confident in him representing me. He listened to me and helped me understand my options and even offered information to help on representing myself! I still chose his representation, I'd called around and he was the only person to offer so much information. He is very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an accident or personal injury attorney. Top notch communication skills between dealing with the hospital, the insurance company at fault, and with myself while navigating through one of the most difficult times in my life. I can't imagine what it would have been like without his help. Not once did he make me feel like he was not in my best interest. To top it off my bills exceeded what the insurance would cover and he still helped me get the most possible and helped me reduce my hospital bills. He was able to get way more than what they had originally offered me. I can't thank him enough. He truly is someone you should not over look. I can't thank him enough!

A Beacon of Hope
Steve Louis-Charles was a beacon of hope to my family when our options to evict a hostile and troubling tenant appeared limited. I had granted a woman and her 12 year old daughter temporary occupancy of a single bedroom within my primary residence without charging her rent as a sincere act of kindness. After a few short months, this individual became verbally and physically aggressive towards members of my family and me. However, I could not get her to leave my home even after seeking a temporary order of protection. With the holidays around the corner the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nearly impossible. However, Steve's profound knowledge and experience in Florida real estate law would indeed make it possible, succeeding my expectations. Not only was he able to resolve the unjust matter and have her quit the premises within 14 days after hiring him, his calm and empathic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. He always answered my telephone calls and text correspondence, including Sundays! He thoroughly provided clear explanation of all processes related to the eviction. He answered every single question and concern I had. He works diligently and his practices are incredibly effective. Steve truly makes you feel like you are an important client and that he is undoubtedly on your side every step of the way. Thank you, Steve!

I needed legal representation and document preparation with no time to spare. Mr. Charles was able to get my document together in record time and a response by the other party by days end. He was available to chat after-hours, when I was in crisis mode, and remained courteous and professional even when I lost my cool. Throughougly recommended. Five stars.

Won my case with his help!
Attorney Charles did not leave any stone unturned in my case. I won't go into the details of my case, but I thought I didn't have a chance defending myself. He immediately started my case and backed my defense with a lot of research. There were things about the law that I didn't even know. He faught hard for me and I appreciate it. I was very nervous with the outcome of my case, but he anticipated every possible action from the Plaintiff and fired back very quickly. I ended up winning my case and receiving a judgment in my favor when we decided to counter-sue. I highly recommend him. He does NOT waist time. I won my case with his help. He is ethical, and that is what the courts will see: ethics! It's been a year, and Attorney Charles still checks in with me to see how I am doing and helps with post-case , with monitoring and managing my judgement. Good guy!

Charles Legal was hired to assist me with an eviction case. He provided excellent legal expertise and kept me up to date as to the timeline of the case and what to expect. I was never once left wondering what was going on. I really did not have to do much but sign the necessary paperwork. He handled everything from the courthouse appearances to drafting legal notices. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who is in need of legal representation. He did an excellent job!
