Court Room

Sexual Harassment - In your employment if you are asked to provide sexual favors or are subjected to unwanted physical touching, assault, exposure to pornography or vulgar sexual remarks or questions from a supervisor, coworker, customer or client, you may have been a victim of sexual harassment and have the right to sue for compensation.

Employment Law-Employee - Fair employment is important to all of us. In today's uncertain economy, too many employees forget, or never learn, that they have legal rights they are entitled to protect. There are many different types of legal claims related to employment. You may have been wrongfully discharged from your employment, or dismissed from your job without good cause. Perhaps you did not get a job, or were let go for an improper reason, such as age, race, or sex discrimination. You may have been harassed on the job or denied earned compensation or benefits. Do not assume that you have to tolerate unfair treatment in the workplace just to earn a living. You have rights, and with the aid of Attorney Charles S. Butler, there are many things you can do to protect those rights.

Medical Malpractice - This may occur when you have been injured by a physician, nurse, hospital employee or other health care provider who has not adhered to the standards of their profession as determined by their peers.

Criminal Defense - Chances are, you have never been charged with a crime before. Whether you have been charged with a felony or "just" a misdemeanor, you now face a process that carries with it the possibility of real and permanent consequences. Criminal defendants often do not know how serious their own situation is. You should know that whatever the charge is, it is serious and needs to be addressed. A conviction for even a "minor" charge can lead to jail time, fines, or both. And your conviction will become part of a criminal record that can cost you employment and financial opportunities in future. Now, as never before, you need to fight to protect your rights, and you need a skilled criminal defense attorney who will stand up for you. Contact Attorney Charles S. Butler for advice.

Police Misconduct - If you or a loved one has been injured by the actions of law enforcement personnel, you may contact Attorney Charles S. Butler to determine if your rights have been violated and if a lawsuit may be appropriate.

Probate/Estate Planning and Administration - It may be hard to think about how your family would deal with your affairs and finances after you pass away, but it is essential to do so. Estate planning allows you to impact the future by directing how you would like your property and assets distributed upon your death. Clients may chose to do this by having us help with preparing a will or establishing one of many kinds of trusts. Without proper planning, your estate could go to the government or to people who you did not choose. At the offices of Attorney Charles S. Butler, I can assist you in making informed decisions about your estate and determine if you need a will. For existing estates, you and your family may have to go through the probate system, which allows the courts to oversee the distribution of a loved one's assets. The probate process is easier on all involved if the correct planning has been done in advance. Let me help you with that process.

Workers' Compensation/Social Security - Persons with disability caused by injuries on the job or poor health frequently benefit by representation by an attorney. This can mean the difference between receiving the benefits to which you are entitled and not receiving them. There is no substitute for the experience and dedication of an attorney who has your best interests in mind. This type of representation is usually handled on a contingent fee basis...that means that you pay nothing for your attorney's services if you do not receive the compensation or benefits for which you have applied.

Whistleblowing - If you believe that you may have been discharged for calling to your employer's attention activities of his business which may be unlawful or otherwise harmful to the public, please consult with Attorney Charles S. Butler for a free confidential consultation to determine if you have grounds for a legal claim for compensation.

Age Discrimination - For an employee over the age of 40, a discharge from employment which you believe would not have occurred except for your age may be the time for you to consult with an attorney who is familiar with Age Discrimination in Employment Laws.

Personal Injury - If you or someone you love has been injured, you know how complicated life suddenly becomes. At the offices of Attorney Charles S. Butler, my goal is to make at least one part of your recovery as easy as possible. When you are injured through the carelessness or recklessness of another, maybe through a car crash or other accident, the law says that the responsible party owes you financial compensation for your injuries, lost wages, medical expenses, and other hardships. Your family may also have a right to compensation. I can guide you through the legal process and maximize your compensation. Whether you are hurt by a car accident, a slip and fall or a defective product, remember - you are owed this money. At this difficult time, you need to focus on your physical and mental recovery - let us take care of your legal recovery.

Legal / Professional Malpractice - If you are harmed in any substantial way by the actions of a professional, such as a lawyer, accountant, or others, you may have a claim for compensation for your losses. A free confidential consultation with Attorney Charles S. Butler can resolve the issue in your mind.

Wrongful Death - I have represented a number of families who have lost loved ones as the result of the neglectful actions of others. I experienced how painful it was for them to deal with this difficult circumstance of loss and grief. They were people who despite the anguish and suffering which they had endured as the result of the loss of their family member, still wanted to place the responsibility where it belonged...on those whose negligent actions had caused this tragedy. Although the compensation which they received was helpful, it was not the primary motivating factor in their decision to take legal action. They wanted to be assured that no other family would have to suffer again under similar circumstances...that the persons or policies that resulted in the taking of a precious life would be changed.
