Mr. Shultz was specific with processes I needed to undertake in order to protect my interests. He spent his personal time giving me insight into the mis-handling of the other parties involved and gave me great ways to obtain information I was unable to get previously.

I did use his services. He helped put my mind at rest. I had him on a conference call with the attorney I was using in another state. After that call I slept a lot better.
I would recommend him.

This time last year, my siblings and I were desperate to resolve my father's estate. It had been in litigation for four years and the end was nowhere in sight. That's when someone recommended we hire Charles. Within a few months, he'd basically untangled years of mendacity, bureaucracy and incompetency. Not only is Charles a resolution-oriented, cost-conscious attorney, he's a master at building and repairing relationships. His ability to handle big egos, open damaged lines of communication and interpret a complicated probate code has been indispensable in settling our case. He knows when to go for the jugular; he knows when to back off. He knows that the most progress is often not made in court and in mediation, but in the hallways between cases and over lunch. Most of all, Charles is not afraid to say it like it is. Whether he's talking to clients or opposing counsel, he doesn't mince words. Because of this, he saved us lots of time, money and aggravation, painful as it initially was to hear the truth. Plus he's a whiz at numbers and tax considerations. If you're looking for quick results and a fantastic trust attorney, Charles is definitely your guy!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I highly recommend Charles for any probate related matter, and particularly probate litigation. I had the pleasure of working with Charles on a hotly contested trust interpretation and breach of trust case where our respective clients had similar interests. While working together, I was able to see firsthand Charles utilize his knowledge and experience of probate and tax to create winning strategies for his clients.
John O'Brien, Personal injury Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
An extremely talented and well respected attorney in the legal community, I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer who knows the law and truly cares about protecting the rights of his clients and getting them the most favorable result possible.
