About Charles

Hi - I'm Charlie Stiegler, a sixth-generation New Orleanian and a proud LSU Tiger.  I've spent years working for high-end law firms based in Silicon Valley and New York City, but my passion is - and always has been - South Louisiana and the people who live here.

It is my job to help Louisiana workers and companies navigate the complexities and unexpected surprises of state and federal labor and employment law, so that they can get back to doing what they do best.

Charles represented me and a few of my co-workers from Plaquemines Parish Govt. We were not being paid time and a half the way we were suppose to and Charles took on the case. It was a dog fight and at times it did not look like we would be successful in winning our case , however this man NEVER GAVE UP AND FOUGHT LIKE A PITBULL. We won our case and now I am being properly paid by Plaquemines Parish Govt. Thank you Charles for not giving up when things were not going our way. I HIGHLY RECOMEND ANYBOY TO HIRE THIS LAW FIRM IF THEY HAVE ANY DISPUTE IN BEING PAID TIME AND A HALF FOR HOURS YOU WORK!!!!!! I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT CHARLES.

Excellent Employment and Labor Lawyer
I work as an HR professional and I worked with Charles for a couple of years. Charles is a very competent labor attorney and a quality individual. Noticeably intelligent, hardworking and highly ethical. He fights for his clients, but does so with integrity.
