In addition to being an experienced business lawyer, Chuck served as the managing partner of the Decker Jones firm for over 20 years. Chuck understands what is it like to run a business and is uniquely suited to advise business clients from the perspective of both attorney and business owner/operator. He often acts as general counsel to his business clients, advising on a wide range of issues and coordinating with other Decker Jones attorneys when specific expertise is required. Chuck works tirelessly to insure his clients get the timely, thoughtful legal advice needed to address both the day-to-day as well as the unexpected issues which arise in running a business in today’s complicated legal and regulatory environment.
For over 20 years, Chuck has also maintained an active practice of assisting clients in buying, selling and recapitalizing businesses. Chuck is one of the area’s pre-eminent M & A attorneys, having been named as a “Texas Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters in the Mergers and Acquisitions category for 14 consecutive years. Much of the Firm’s M & A business comes from repeat referrals from CPAs and Investment Bankers who know that Chuck and the Decker Jones team will deliver the type of advice and protection their clients need, in a timely manner and at a reasonable costs.
Outside of the office, Chuck serves on numerous charitable and civic boards and committees, donating countless hours to causes such as the United Way and Catholic Charities.
