Local Counsel and a Handshake You Can Trust

We focus on building team-like relationships with our clients through collaboration and education, rather than simply acting as the legal technicians or “bulldogs” that you may often associate with attorneys.  Not only do we guide and teach our clients, but we benefit by learning from them as well.

The value-added piece of legal advisement is not easy to define.  This economic and business theory focuses on improving processes, efficiencies, and ultimately outcomes, resulting in a product with an increased value.  We strive to integrate this value-added theory to the legal industry through continual improvement in business operational efficiencies, building quality collaborative relationships, realistically assessing risks and likely outcomes, setting goal-oriented projects, and identifying the positive outcomes in each of our projects. 

We are neither the smallest, nor the biggest law firm in town, nor are we the least or most expensive.  But, you will find that we will work hard every day to be the best fit for you. We are experienced attorney's focused on protecting the personal and business interests of our clients. With over 40 years of combined experience, we will provide legal counsel necessary to secure your immediate and long-term interests. 

“We have been clients of Charles Dorothy for over 30 years and the length of time itself is a testimonial to the firm's capabilities of handling every aspect of business and personal needs. With all of their experience they are a pleasure to work with.”
