Personal injury attorney Chalmers “Chuck” H. Barnes has been fighting for justice for the injured since 1974. In his 4 decades of legal experience he has successfully resolved thousands of personal injury and medical malpractice cases throughout Florida and Georgia. With his wealth of legal experience there is no medical issue in a personal injury case that he cannot handle.

Chuck is a true “Trial Attorney” not a spokesman or a marketer that will refer your case to another firm or pass you off to a case manager. When you hire Chuck or his firm, you will be represented by Barnes & Cohen attorneys.

Few Attorneys in the Southeast United States have graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. from Harvard University. In fact Mr. Barnes may be the only one in the Jacksonville area. Chuck followed up his Harvard undergraduate degree with a J.D. from one of the highest ranked law schools in the nation, the Georgetown Law School in Washington D.C in 1974. While there are many highly accomplished attorneys in the Jacksonville area you would be hard pressed to find another with such credentials.

Chuck is a co-founder of Barnes & Cohen, P.A. He is a member of the Florida Bar Association, the Georgia Bar Association, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida and is admitted to Federal and State Courts for both Florida and Georgia.
