Professional, thorough and patient.
Charles made this difficult decision bearable and streamlined. I never had to worry or second guess his advice. Even the physician he referred me to complimented his expert advice and determination to help me in every way he could above and beyond. I cannot thank him enough for his diligence.

Charles Showalter
Charles is a very personable individual. I truly feel he is passionate for the work that he does. Everyone's case is different my case was clear-cut that has changed my life. I honestly felt he gave the biggest fight that he could and was well-rounded in dealing with several different people. Charles knew by my medical exams that this was indeed a life-changing event for me and my family. While fighting the good fight he kept my name in honesty and was always respectable to me and my opinions and my wishes. It was very pleasurable speaking with him about my case because I was treated as a human being. As my case went on it felt he was more like a friend than my attorney which made it easier for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is seeking knowledgeable advice and representation!
