About me

Chuck has more than 20 years of experience representing corporations and
business professionals in complex contractual disputes, real estate
transactions, copyright and trademark litigation, international trade disputes,
commercial leasing and acquisition, as well as criminal and white-collar crime.

Among his recent accomplishments were
the successful litigation for a business client victimized by trade
secret misappropriation of advanced designs of GE turbine fuel injection hoses,
and the resolution of a civil RICO (racketeering) action for the Roman Catholic
Church.  He also litigated the first class action matter before
the American Arbitration Association under their newly promulgated rules for
class actions.

Chuck likes all things fast—from race cars and motorcycles to jet skis and
boats—he is a true motor sports fan! He enjoys taking in the Southern
California scenery on his beautiful Harley Davidson. Chuck also is a big sports fan, especially soccer. He serves as the general
manager for the AJAX
women’s soccer club, the developmental team for the Los Angeles Sol. Chuck also
enjoys cheering his daughter on as she takes up the sport.

Chuck serves as the secretary on the Julius Sumner Miller Foundation Board
of Trustees—an organization dedicated to helping the elderly.
