My name is Charles Telfair and I’m a personal injury trial lawyer. I started my legal career 25 years ago at one of the largest law firms in the country, Holland & Knight. There I represented major corporations, including Tropicana, Pepsi, Textron, Stanley Bostich and many others.
After I left Holland & Knight, I represented a personal injury victim here and there. Through those cases, I realized my true passion was helping victims navigate through their injury claims. It was a very rewarding experience for me. About 15 years ago, I shifted my practice to personal injury. That is what I have focused on ever since.
I pride myself on personal service. Many of my clients are my friends. I know them and every aspect of their claim. When you call my office, you speak with me.
I focus on your claim. You focus on your recovery.

I endorse this lawyer. I have seen the results of Mr. Telfair's work in personal injury cases, a motorcycle one, in particular. He obtained a spectacular result for an injured rider where I thought it was impossible. Here in Sarasota he and his partner are first rate PI lawyers.
