J. A. May 31, 2022
Unethically holding our case hostage Charles is the laziest self serving jerk I've ever encountered. I believe his only desire is to pad his own pockets and put in the least amount of work possible. We hired him to represent us in an accident after my wife was hit. Nothing has gone well and he makes excuses only wanting us to settle at the earliest point. My wife has been suffering with migraines, back and neck pain for over a year now and this guy gets to collect a check while we are out time, money, a vehicle and much more. We would have been better off representing ourselves. Now he's placed an invalid lien on or case so no other attorney will represent us. This along with a conflict of interest that was never disclosed tells me this guy is as crooked as they come.

Biography

Charles F. Bean was raised in Twin Falls, Idaho. He was fortunate to play basketball for the College of Southern Idaho “Golden Eagles” which was coached by Eddie Sutton who is currently the 8th winningest college coach of all time. While attending Gonzaga Law School, he worked full time as the Assistant Personnel Director for Expo ’74 in Spokane and still had time to write an article for the Gonzaga Law Review. Charlie and his wife, Carol, have four grown children and 10 wonderful grandchildren. Along with being a proud grandfather and a full time lawyer, Charlie has found time to run all 43 of the Bloomsday road races and is one of approximately 81 “perennials” who have run Bloomsday every year.

On a professional level, Charlie began his practice of law in Idaho in 1977 when he worked as a Deputy Prosecutor in Kootenai County. In 1978, Charlie joined Ray Cox in the firm of Cox & Bean where he assisted Mr. Cox in litigation which provided compensation to the families of the miners who died in the Sunshine Mine Disaster. Charlie started his own law firm in 1980. Charlie represented the Associated Logging Contractors of Idaho as their legal counsel for approximately three years. He is a member of the Idaho State Bar Association, Idaho Trial Lawyers Association, Washington State Association for Justice, Montana State Trial Lawyers, American Association for Justice, The National Trial Lawyers, and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR). His practice consists primarily of personal injury and disability claims. His legal services have resulted in substantial verdicts and settlements for injured victims.
