Criminal Defense and DUI Defense lawyer Charles Goodwin is dedicated to his clients because he understands what they are going through. Charles got into trouble when he was 18 years old and was sent to the Nevada Department of Corrections Boot Camp outside of High Desert State Prison. Charles remembers what it was like being bewildered in court as the judge and attorneys were speaking. He remembers how long it took to get his case going. And he remembers the fear, uncertainty, and anxiety that came along with being in the Las Vegas criminal justice system. He decided after he got out that he wanted to help those who made mistakes and wanted to make it right.
Charles graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas while at their partner school in Chengdu, China. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese Studies and a minor in the Chinese language. Once he returned to the states he attended the Boyd School of Law in Las Vegas. While there, his interests were solely geared towards criminal defense and DUI defense. He earned three of the prestigious CALI awards while in Law School and interned at the Clark County Public Defender's Office and the Federal Public Defender's Office. Before he had even started to practice, he was known in the courtrooms of Las Vegas.
Charles Goodwin joined the largest criminal defense firm in Las Vegas after graduating from Law School. There, he studied under two of the best trial attorneys in Las Vegas. While there, Charles learned advanced legal theories for criminal defense and DUI defense. He worked on every type of case, including trespassing, battery, battery constituting domestic violence (felony and misdemeanor), DUI, DUI resulting in substantial bodily harm, DUI resulting in death, open murder, theft, robbery, home invasion, trafficking (all levels) possession of controlled substances, sexual assault, lewdness with a minor, open and gross conduct, assault with a deadly weapon, and everything else in between.
