Starting in 1966, Chuck – or “boy” as he was then called – had a series of life shaping jobs.  At age 14, he started as a landscaper’s helper (hole digger), and then took a job cleaning up construction sites for a homebuilder.  Chuck then worked as a plumber’s helper (ditch digger) before moving up in the business world to a gas station attendant.

While attending high school, he worked 70 hours per week over summer breaks, but only 40 hours per week while school was in session. After starting college, Chuck worked in a McDonalds before trying his hand as a warehouseman (truck loader). He then worked for a department store as a trash burner, and later as a janitor for an apartment complex.

After his parents moved to Little Rock, Chuck was able to get work as a shoveler on an asphalt crew.  He tried driving the asphalt roller, but did not prove talented enough to give up his shovel.  He also worked on a cement crew, and after trying his hand at finishing and forming, he again found that his talent lay with a shovel.  His first indoor job was in Chicago in 1973 as an apprentice butcher.  His butcher shop employment was followed by working as a tie salesman.

After earning his B.S. in Advertising from the University of Illinois in 1974, Chuck worked as an advertising intern (not much different than a ditch digger).  He then became a teaching assistant at the University of Texas College of Communications.  In the summer of 1976, Chuck got a clerkship at the Federal Trade Commission, although they declined to offer him full-time employment since he wasn’t in the top 10% of his class.  Chuck then took a job listed at the UT Law School, and found himself investigating car wrecks for Bill Whitehurst in Austin.

After graduating in 1977 from the University of Texas School of Law, Chuck began working for personal injury lawyer Wallace Craig in Hurst.  In 1982, Chuck opened his own law firm.

Today, Chuck’s law firm has a  staff of 17.  The firm accepts only about one percent of the cases they evaluate each year.  Chuck concentrates his practice on cases that spark his interest.

Chuck has been Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1983.  He holds a certificate in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and has been named Barrister Emeritus, Order of Barristers, by Texas A&M University School of Law.  Chuck is the Chairman of the Warren E. Burger Society of the National Center for State Courts.  He is also a member of the American Bar Association, The American Association for Justice, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the Tarrant County Bar Association.  Chuck served as the President of the Tarrant County Trial Lawyers Association and is the former Chair for the Tarrant County Bar Foundation.  Chuck has been featured as an expert commentator for radio and television and has spoken at various seminars.  Chuck is the only lawyer in history to obtain two nine-figure jury verdicts in Tarrant County.
