About Craig Charles Law
Craig Charles focuses solely on catastrophic injuries and sex abuse claims. This limited focus gives him keen insight, skill, and knowledge to achieve top results in every case. With more than a decade of litigation and trial experience, Mr. Charles has recovered multiple millions of dollars on behalf of injured and abused victims.
Mr. Charles believes firmly in the concept of a boutique law firm. Unlike large volume law firms, in which clients and their cases are often neglected, Craig Charles represents only a limited number of injury and abuse victims. This approach allows him to not only give each client individual attention, but to also maximize the value of each case. Mr. Charles only takes cases where he believes a severe injustice has occurred. This allows him to be passionate about every case and to fight zealously on behalf of each client. The net result is a huge success, as Mr. Charles obtains numerous multi-million-dollar resolutions for clients year after year.

- Sex Abuse: Mr. Charles is particularly proud of his work helping clients to recover from abuse at the hands of church leaders, scout leaders, teachers, coaches and counselors.
