About me

Charles is a shareholder at The Law Office of Lofgren & Wentworth, P.C. in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, where he practices business, property, and appellate litigation. After graduating from the SJ Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, he clerked for Chief Justice John Broderick of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. He was then a litigation associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago before opening his own practice. He recently joined Richard Lofgren to form The Law Office of Lofgren & Wentworth, P.C., The Entrepreneur's Legal Resource. Charles' experience as an officer and director of multiple closely-held companies also gives him practical business and real estate experience. And he is active in the DuPage County and Illinois State Bar Associations, where he frequently writes and speaks about the law.

Charles often represents out-of-state companies who need a local attorney to help with prosecuting and defending cases in Illinois.

    Charles is a great resource for the community of entrepreneurs. After graduating law school Charles helped me be an entrepreneur and establish my own Law Practice. His insights into the both the legal community and the business community were extremely helpful in getting my business off the ground.

  • Ryan M Kipfer

    Although Charles has only been at his own firm for a few years, he is fast becoming known among lawyers in the community as one of the top appeals lawyers. I would refer an appeal that was outside of my area of expertise to Charles and have 100% confidence that the client would receive excellent representation from Charles.
