Charles M. Hearn's Profile

Charlie represents industry-leading companies and manufacturers in complex commercial and product liability disputes. He has represented businesses of all sizes, from small family businesses to large Fortune 500 corporations, throughout a variety of industries, including firearm manufacturers, pest-control providers, chemical manufacturers, and paper product manufacturers.  Charlie vigorously represents and pursues his clients’ interests and, as a result, Super Lawyers has named him a “Rising Star” multiple times— an honor reserved for no more than 2.5% of Alabama attorneys.

As a former officer in the United States Marine Corps, Charlie’s attention to detail and ability to think outside of the box has allowed him to solve his clients’ most challenging problems.  These traits have enabled him to settle cases with millions in claimed damages for fractions of those amounts, as well as secure other favorable resolutions both before and at trial.

In addition to litigation, Charlie also has represented clients in a variety of other legal matters, including sizable commercial loan transactions and the acquisition and sale of companies.

Charlie and his wife, Sarah Catherine, live in Hoover, Alabama, with their two young boys and are active members of Dawson Memorial Baptist Church. Charlie serves on the junior board of Magic Moments, a non-profit organization that works with Alabama children diagnosed with chronic, life-threatening medical conditions, and volunteers as a youth baseball coach.  When he’s not in the office, Charlie enjoys golfing and spending time outdoors with his sons.
