A Beacon of Hope
Steve Louis-Charles was a beacon of hope to my family when our options to evict a hostile and troubling tenant appeared limited. I had granted a woman and her 12 year old daughter temporary occupancy of a single bedroom within my primary residence without charging her rent as a sincere act of kindness. After a few short months, this individual became verbally and physically aggressive towards members of my family and me. However, I could not get her to leave my home even after seeking a temporary order of protection. With the holidays around the corner the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nearly impossible. However, Steve's profound knowledge and experience in Florida real estate law would indeed make it possible, succeeding my expectations. Not only was he able to resolve the unjust matter and have her quit the premises within 14 days after hiring him, his calm and empathic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. He always answered my telephone calls and text correspondence, including Sundays! He thoroughly provided clear explanation of all processes related to the eviction. He answered every single question and concern I had. He works diligently and his practices are incredibly effective. Steve truly makes you feel like you are an important client and that he is undoubtedly on your side every step of the way. Thank you, Steve!

Really investigated our case options
Mr Charles investigated our case options and really provided resolution. Other attornies stated that we didn't have a case due to the nature of the car accident. Charles Legal did a phenomenal investigation and concluded that we did have a case. The results of the investigation were brought forth and we were able to recoup medical fees and damages (other fees).

Legal Answers
58 Questions Answered

Q. Will the bank give me time to fix things
A: If not already, an estate for your mother must be opened up and the bank will need to serve the administrator of the estate to move things along within the courts on the foreclosure case. That should buy you enough time to strategize on how to proceed with retaining the property. I would highly recommend that you see an attorney that deals in both probate and foreclosure matters right away.
Q. How do I stop my landlord from illegally evicting me. He is already putting my belongings outside. locked me out.
A: Contact law enforcement right away and they will inform your landlord of the proper method to evict and allow you to place all of your belongings back inside of the premises. Your landlord has just engaged in "self help" and may now have exposed him or herself to civil remedies and penalties. Hope this helps...
Q. I was in a car accident in Boca Raton. The driver ran a red light and t-boned my vehicle.
A: Your auto insurance provides you with $10K in PIP benefits in situations such as these. Simply provide the hospital with your automobile proof of insurance card in lieu of your HMO or PPO policy. You should also be examined and start treatment with a chiropractor immediately as well. I specialize in these types of cases. Please give my office a call asap.
