Biography

Charles grew up in a family construction business and has been dealing with contracts and legal issues for over 30 years. He went to law school to reduce cost in the business, however during this time found a new passion in helping people through the legal hurdles that we all face at some point in time in our life.

Charles has been married to his wife Gina since 2003 and they have an adopted daughter whom they have had since birth. Actually since day one, as they were in the birthing room when she was born. Going through the adoption process has given us insight and experience from the clients view and understand the stress that comes along with an adoption, not to mention they have also undergone the stress of three failed IVF rounds, so understanding that stress and expense is nothing new to them either.

Charles focuses mostly on Family Law issues, such as Guardianships, Divorce, Custody or Visitation, and Adoptions. However, he is also very adept with Construction Law, general Business Law, and Tax Law.

Legal Answers
Q. Is it illegal to open your child’s mail that’s addressed to your house if they’re 18?
A: In the state of Oklahoma you are considered an adult with some exceptions when you turn 18. The Federal Government has stated it is not legal to open another 'adult' persons mail without their explicit consent (such as in a wife opening a husbands or vice versa, a secretary opening the mail addressed to her boss, neighbor under your direction while your on vacation, etc...) - - caveat is so long as the adult is not physically or mentally impaired and requires a caregiver/guardian, because that could give them permission at that point. If the mail is addressed to you, then no one has permission to open it unless you allow it. - Be careful with pushing this into a legal field, because your parents could face a federal felony charge that could result in a fine or prison sentence up to 5 years.
Q. Can I sue for wrongful termination yes or no
A: Short answer - yes -- but that does not mean you will win. You will have to prove your case with facts and depositions to prove that in fact it was wrongful. This could be a costly road, but then if you win, you have a good chance of also recovering attorney fees. If you lose then the expenses are not recoverable and you may have to actually pay their attorney fees.
