Chip knows almost everything about workers' compensation. He is a formidable and highly skilled advocate. I would -- and do -- recommend him to anyone with a workers' compensation issue.

Biography

Attorney Charles L. Powell has been practicing workers’ compensation law for more than 33 years. For the first 12 years of his career, Attorney Powell worked for Swartz & Campbell LLC in Philadelphia, where he represented both manufacturers and insurers. This experience gave him invaluable insight into the tactics these clients use in the courtroom to protect their financial interests. In 2003, founded his own firm, The Law Office of Charles L. Powell PLLC, where he has become a highly experienced workers’ compensation attorney for the injured workers of Vermont. He now dedicates his practice to the advocacy of these clients and has faced considerable corporate entities—such as Wal-Mart, General Electric, and Liberty Mutual—in open court in order to protect their interests. Attorney Powell is also the author of The Injured Workers’ Guide to Vermont Workers’ Compensation, which continues to be a valued resource among injured workers and their families in their time of need.
