Charles W. Marchbanks, Jr.
Charles “Chuck” W. Marchbanks, Jr. established the Marchbanks Law Firm, LLC in 2009 with a singular purpose in mind – law for the people.
Whether your case is in Civil, Family, Criminal, or Probate Court, all the way through to the appellate level, Mr. Marchbanks has over a decade of experience in multiple jurisdictions across the Upstate. In addition to court cases, we also pursue insurance claims for clients suffering from personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one. The type of case and the perceived value of a case does not matter – our baseline goal is to help people get through difficult times. Our commitment is to work to put you in a better position or to minimize your exposure to harm as we provide effective, compassionate legal representation.
All legal matters are not, however, a reaction to an injurious event or an adverse situation. The Marchbanks Law Firm, LLC can also help you prepare for the future through estate planning, including Trusts, Wills, Powers of Attorney, and property deeds. Together, we develop a comprehensive plan to protect your health, business interests, and personal assets. Each estate plan is tailored specifically for you and your family. We can help you have peace of mind, knowing you have documents and information in place to care for yourself and your family.
Whatever area you need assistance in, we look forward to working with you.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases
We assist clients suffering personal injury or trying to cope with the wrongful death of a loved one. This can include loss from a car wreck, dealing with insurance claims, and handling property issues. We aggressively pursue the claim while compassionately walking our client through the process. We listen to, and fight for, our clients. Detailed analysis, future considerations, and the loss suffered by those other than the person who endured the direct injury are all a part of what we evaluate in these cases.
Criminal and DUI Defense
We strongly investigate and defend clients against a range of allegations, from magistrate court tickets to major criminal charges. Criminal defense is sometimes a long, intricate process that needs both a formidable trial lawyer and a step-by-step analysis of every piece of a case to ensure a just result is obtained. We work with investigators, experts, and our clients hand-in-hand on an individual case basis, and we strive to consider and evaluate every possible angle.
Probate and Estate Planning
We provide legal services for estate disputes after your loved one passes, as well as general estate administration. Handling your loved one’s estate can be a complicated process, made especially difficult when combined with grief and conflict. We have extensive experience in dealing with these matters. Even in instances where a loved one has not passed away but has lost his or her capacity to manage in life, we can assist with establishing a guardianship / conservatorship for such vulnerable individuals. To help protect you and your family’s future, our firm also works with clients to develop comprehensive estate planning documents, including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and property deeds.
Family Law Services
We help clients litigate child custody, visitation, support, and division of marital assets. In addition, we offer legal assistance with adoptions and name changes. Family Court matters require a combination of compassion, determination, and flexibility in our representation, ranging from negotiating a fair agreement to aggressively litigating the case when necessary. The key in this area of practice is hearing our client's needs and working to obtain a just result.
