Biography

About Charles

Charles A. Horowitz has practiced law for nearly three decades. Over that span of time, he successfully litigated dozens of cases in Federal and State Court and before the Minneapolis and St. Paul Civil Service Commissions, the Office of Administrative Hearings and other tribunals. In addition to his core practice of plaintiff’s side employment law, Charles has represented clients in matters involving education law, physician/nurse licensing, unpaid insurance claims, business ownership disputes, theft of trade secrets, civil rights violations and probate law. Uncommon in an age of increasing specialization, this breadth of experience lends Charles the ability to craft creative solutions to complex, seemingly intractable disputes. Charles enjoys a solid reputation in the legal community representing employees subject to non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, as well as Veterans of the Armed Services employed in the public sector. He has written and lectured on both topics extensively, to legal and lay audiences.

Charles’ achievements include obtaining a $200,000 judgment following trial, winning numerous substantive motions, securing lucrative settlements for dozens of clients and arguing an important Veterans Rights case before the Minnesota Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. In addition, Charles’ knowledge and experience litigating large unpaid overtime, consumer fraud and anti-trust cases supplements the Firm’s already outstanding class and collective action practice.
