He and his associates handle civil and consumer protection litigation, including matters of personal injury, wrongful death, consumer debt defense, and product liability.

Charles B. Pekor graduated cum laude from the Mercer University School of Law with a Juris Doctor in 1968. Within his first year as a civil trial lawyer in the Department of Justice, he was serving as lead counsel on major cases at the U.S. District Court level while going up against attorneys with decades of experience. After several years in this role, Charles B. Pekor transferred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle District of Georgia. There, he started out as an Assistant U.S. Attorney before receiving a promotion to First Assistant U.S. Attorney, the second-in-command within the office. At the time, he was the youngest First Assistant U.S. Attorney in the nation.

During his career with the government, Charles B. Pekor tried more than 75 civil and criminal jury trials from start to finish and never lost a single one. He also served as an Acting U.S. Attorney, and as the government’s civilian prosecutor in the court-martial of Lt. William Calley.
