About Our Firm

     The Law Office of Charles L. Morgan Jr. is a full-service criminal defense firm with an extremely dedicated staff.  Charles L. Morgan Jr. has spent over 30 years successfully defending people on charges ranging from DUI/DWI to theft to murder at the state level; and from bank fraud to drug conspiracy to other white-collar crimes at the federal level.
    Assisting Charles Morgan is office manager Melissa Lunsford, a highly trained North Carolina State Bar Certified Paralegal.  When needed, we employ the services of Brian Crump; a NC licensed private investigator who has been instrumental in helping us achieve favorable results for our clients.  We occasionally enlist the services of our contract attorney, David Demers as well.  Finally, our team approach includes law clerks from area law schools, paralegal and pre-law students.  


     Attorney Chuck Morgan served as an assistant district attorney for the 22nd Prosecutorial District in Lexington, North Carolina, and was a Mecklenburg County assistant public defender before joining a multi-state general practice law firm. He was quickly named a partner and managed all criminal cases for the firm.


     In 1989, Chuck Morgan opened his own practice focusing solely on criminal law in Charlotte, NC.  At the Law Office of Charles L. Morgan Jr., we are proud of our reputation of standing up for our clients' rights. We look at all the evidence and dig into all the details to make sure no stone is left unturned. Our law firm's goal is to set reasonable expectations for our clients based on the facts, the law and the evidence.  We will not tell you what you want to hear, instead we will tell you what you need to hear, because without truth there is no justice.
