    Charis Campbell has worked in both the public and private sector helping mortgagors to save their homes through numerous loss mitigation options and aggressive litigation.

Charis A. Campbell was born and raised in New Providence, Bahamas. In 2002, she moved to South Florida with her family to pursue an education that ultimately led to her career in the legal profession. Charis obtained her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude, with a major in Criminology and a minor in African Studies.

Charis obtained her Juris Doctor Degree from Stetson University College of Law. While at Stetson, she served as a Teacher’s Assistant for Research and Writing and a Research Assistant for the American Caribbean Law Initiative. She also worked at a full-service real estate firm gaining experience in foreclosure and title curative work assisting with the representation of major lending institutions throughout the United States. She was the recipient of the Dean Richard Dillon Excellence in Real Property Award for having shown commitment and interest in the field of real property law.

Post-graduation, Charis served as an attorney at Gulfcoast Legal Services, Inc., non-profit legal aid. She gained invaluable experience serving indigent clients of Pinellas County providing legal services in the area of foreclosure defense. She assisted numerous clients with loan modifications throughout Tampa Bay. She diligently strived and succeeded in helping to keep her clients in their homes, safe and secure.

Soon after, Charis became one of the founders and managing partners of Legally Modern Law Group. While at LML, she discovered her love and appreciation for family law and dependency. She primarily handled most of the Pinellas and Hillsborough county family law and dependency cases. Her goal as an attorney has always been to spend the necessary time understanding her client’s needs and facilitating a plan to diligently pursue them under the law. As an active volunteer of the Guardian ad Litem Program, she understands the unique dynamics of every family and the circumstances that can effect the dynamic of the same.

In 2015, Charis founded Golden Key Law Group, PLLC. Her practice focuses primarily on Real Estate and Family Law, both fields that she is intensely passionate about. Charis is currently the President of Fred G. Minnis, Sr. Bar Association. She is also an active member of The Canakaris Inn of Court, an association comprising of lawyers, judges and other legal professionals who share a passion for professional excellence in family law.

Client
I hired Charis to help me with my divorce in 2020. She came highly recommended from a beloved family friend, and the recommendation was warranted. She not only helped me navigate a severely volatile situation with my ex, but also helped me find a good counselor for my daughter to help her process the changes. She has been exceptional in her advice and gracious in my payment plan. I would hire her again and again.

Awesome Lawyer
Charis has gone above and beyond. While going through a tough divorce and all of the creditors were coming after me and garnishing my wages, Charis worked with the debt collectors and they reduced the garnished amount. Charis always answered my questions in a timely manner and was by myside every step of the way. I would definitely refer her to anyone as she was an awesome attorney!

Parenting plan
Mrs. Campbell has been our attorney for the last two years now. She does an amazing job at communicating the judicial process. Her law office is great at answering questions and phone calls. Mrs. Campbell was first hired to resolve issues from a dependant case but, now she has done wonders at modifying our timesharing plan. Even though this very long battle is not over, she continues to work with us diligently, respectfully, and with patience. As everyone knows that when it comes to father's rights in child custody cases, things always seem unfair. Mothers always have the upper hand in the courts but this is not true in my case. I had a fair hearing and Mrs. Campbell continues to work enthusiastically on my behalf. If there are any fathers out there that are serious about being a part of their children's life, Mrs. Campbell can assist you. I would recommend a thousand times. Children need their father too. Know your rights and take a stand for your family.

Family Law
I hired Charis last year (2015) for a family law case, after a year long fight that case has finally closed. Charis was an exceptional attorney, I had met with several before choosing and I do not regret my decision one bit. Charis is a smart and driven woman. When we had first met she was working in a attorneys office and since then has opened up her own. She is also very friendly and supportive. We never had any problems. It was a blessing to have her by my side during all my proceedings. I was never worried because she was able to answer all my questions and take care of all my worries. I would highly recommend Charis Campbell for any and all family law matters. God forbid I have any more, but if I do I will be calling Charis. Thank you again! :)

Overall I would recommend
Represented me in a Family Law case. At times she was difficult to reach but generally got back to me in a week or sooner if a hearing was coming up. She was certainly there when I needed her and was well prepared when coming to court. She was well informed on legal matters and knowledge of local resources. She advised me on legal matters but listened to my wishes regarding the direction I wanted to go. I would certainly use her again in the future and recommend her for Family Law cases.

Best lawyer I could have asked for
I would genuinely recommend Charis to anyone who needs a responsible and clearheaded lawyer. She acted very quickly to take action on my case and had a good depth of understanding on the issues. Anytime I called, she picked up the phone. I was daunted facing the costs of my defense but Charis really came through and was my midnight salvation. She has a great future.
