About Charlie


I’m a partner at Wiley Rein, mostly focusing on litigation and representing lawyers in legal ethics matters.  I’ve been married for 35 years to a wonderful spouse who works harder than I do and makes everything good in my life possible.  We have two daughters who amaze me with their success, their humor, and their compassion.  As an adjunct professor of legal ethics at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School and a trial advocacy coach at Georgetown University Law Center for more than 15 years, I am happy to have several hundred former students working and serving the profession in their own ways.  I hope to serve the D.C. Bar and its members as the next President-Elect.

I accepted the nomination to run for President-Elect not because I want the title but because it offers an unmatched opportunity to serve the profession and the community.  Almost from the day I was admitted to the bar, I have served the profession through teaching, coaching and mentoring, pro bono representations, initiatives to foster diversity, inclusion, and advancement, and service to the D.C. Bar. I have always believed that we have an obligation to serve as stewards for the legal profession to leave it stronger, more diverse, more inclusive, and more respected than when we started.  Serving as D.C. Bar President-Elect would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me to serve the bar and its members.
