SMALL-FIRM ATTENTION. BIG-FIRM POWER.
Charles M. Greene is a well-known, AV rated, civil and criminal litigator who has practiced for nearly twenty-five years and tried cases across the country. He is a Board Certified Civil Trial Expert. His firm focuses on providing premium quality service and confidently handles a broad range of commercial and criminal matters.
Greene has a reputation as a masterful tactician who applies sound judgment with an appropriately tempered aggressive edge. He started his own firm, Charles M. Greene, P.A. (CMGPA), in the year 2000.
Civil Litigation/Criminal Defense – A Perfect Fit
Mr. Greene handles both civil litigation and criminal defense. Many of his cases, both civil and criminal, involve allegations of fraud, misappropriation, and other similar wrongdoing. The issues in the civil and criminal matters often overlap and require the same skills to resolve. While the burden of proof in civil and criminal cases differ, the ability to identify issues, develop trial strategies, and recognize and/or create solutions is important in both fields. Mr. Greene’s skills in civil and criminal litigation compliment each other. He is known for “thinking outside the box” and taking creative approaches that many traditional litigators do not.
We Are Trial Lawyers
While we advise our clients how to avoid litigation and reduce their exposure in numerous circumstances, we are not transactional lawyers. We are litigators and trial lawyers. We are able to resolve most matters without a trial. However, we have the skills and resources necessary to handle even the most complex trials when cases cannot otherwise be resolved.
We Have The Resources
CMGPA employs several lawyers in addition to Mr. Greene, as well as paralegals and other staff. CMGPA also has “of counsel” relationships with highly skilled lawyers who provide valuable assistance to Mr. Greene and CMGPA’s clients.
CMGPA relies upon and places emphasis on the best available technologies and is “paperless” to the greatest extent practicable. The use of electronic filing, scanning, and high memory capacity equipment enables CMGPA to access and store voluminous information that is created and produced in the matters it handles.
Our firm philosophy is to ascertain our client’s goal at the onset of the representation, develop a plan for attaining that goal, and pursue that goal in the most expeditious and efficient manner practicable under the circumstances. We are always sensitive to the fact that our clients trust us to counsel them as to their options and are equally cognizant of our duty to diligently pursue the best result we can obtain for those whom we represent.
We strive to be courteous and professional in our dealings with opposing counsels, prosecutors, and others. However, our goal is always to “win” (though winning can mean drastically different things in different circumstances). We represent our clients with zeal, but always adhering to the ethical standards governing the legal profession.
An Efficient Alternative to the Large Firms
We offer an alternative to the larger firms that handle matters similar to the cases in which we are involved. We take pride in the fact that we offer the same level of services expected from larger firms, but at a much lower cost.
CMGPA has litigated cases against all or most of the large firms in the Orlando area and across the State. Our clients have never suffered because larger law firms opposing us had more attorneys or other resources. Our firm places an emphasis on technology, which helps us manage complex document-intensive cases from which most small to medium firms shy away.
At CMGPA, you are not just another case or file. We believe our clients deserve individualized attention and understand that our clients are usually in highly stressful situations when they call upon us, whether because of a pending business dissolution, pending indictment, arrest, or other traumatic situation. Our goal is to listen to you, understand the concerns and issues you confront, provide you with the best options available under the circumstances, and help guide you through the legal process. Your worries become our concerns. Let us handle them for you.
Charles M. Greene is the primary litigator on all cases. While there are other qualified attorneys within the office who provide valuable assistance, Mr. Greene is the lead attorney who will be responsible for and knowledgeable about all of the cases within the firm. You can count on individualized and highly competent representation from him.
Our firm is not a low cost “shop,” but we do offer reasonable hourly rates and payment options to our clients. Moreover, because we pursue a focused litigation strategy, we avoid unnecessary and duplicative costs that are often incurred in similar matters handled by others. Finally, we discuss costs and fees with our clients before they are incurred and strive to keep costs of the litigation within our clients’ budgets.
