In 1993, Chuck Simpson joined Harris, Creech, Ward & Blackerby upon being admitted to the North Carolina Bar, after graduating from the Campbell University School of Law where he was active on moot court and awarded a National Membership of the Order of Barristers.

Chuck has continually focused his practice on the resolution of disputes, primarily through litigation. Chuck defends individual and business clients against personal injury claims, and health care professionals and institutions against claims of professional negligence.

Chuck's experience includes trials of many dozens of cases to jury verdict, trials before judges of the North Carolina Superior Courts to non-jury verdict, as well as representing clients in many arbitration hearings.  Chuck has argued cases on appeal before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court.  Chuck has been voted by his peers as a Best Lawyer in America in the fields of Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury Litigation and Product Liability from 2013-2017.  

Chuck has also distinguished himself outside of the courtroom as a mediator and arbitrator of disputes. Certified by the North Carolina Superior Court as a mediator, many clients seeks his mediating skills as an alternative to formal litigation.  Similarly, litigants have chosen Chuck to serve as an arbitrator to decide case outcomes.
