Chuck 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 40 years, Chuck has maintained an active practice of assisting clients with their estate planning needs.
