ABOUT ME

CHARLES D. VEGA

I am doing what I love to do. My aim is to provide you a first class legal service experience. I have always felt my career successes was because I earned my clients respect through honesty integrity, knowledge and doing what I say I am going to do.

I was not born with a sliver spoon, my dad was a New York City Police officer and my mom was a stay at home housewife. I was blessed to have wonderful parents. I learned early on respect, integrity and the value of hard work.

While raising a young family, I worked full time and attended night school part-time to obtain my bachelors degree at Nova SE University in Davie Florida. Afterwards I worked in sales and marketing for Siemens, AT&T and the United States Postal Service. I earned just about every award for outstanding achievement in each company! I had the honor to present at the White House conference room five times and the opportunity to make a difference professionally and personally in so many ways.

Personally I love spending time with my family, enjoy jet skiing, the beach lecturing on personal safety for women and chidren and have practicing martial arts for over 25 years; achieving the rank of Master Instructor, a 5th Degree Black Belt in Combat Hapkido.

My next big challenge was to realize a life long dream to become an attorney. I again worked full time and attended law school part-time at night. I commuted 180 miles a day to and from law school four nights a week and studied every weekend, all weekend! I attended Barry University School of Law and Florida Coastal School of Law, completed the four year program in three and half years, and passed the Florida bar the first time!

Many people questioned why go through the brutal curriculum of law school and the long commute at this time in your life? My answer was it's always what I wanted to do, I am chasing a dream and wouldn't you want an attorney to work that hard for you?

As an attorney at law and owner of my own law firm, I now have the power to fight for you! Now you know about me, let's talk so I can get to know you!
