Coming with experience in workers’ compensation defense, I understand the concerns and goals that come with such a practice. Workers’ compensation can feel like a complicated intersection of the law, medicine, insurance, and employee relations, and I aim to make these issues as straightforward as possible in my representation to achieve the most effective outcome for clients.

As a native Oregonian, you can find Charlie exploring the wonderful food and beverage scene with his wife and taking his young daughter on trips to the Coast. In his free time, Charlie enjoys running, gardening, and rooting for his Oregon State Beavers.
