Charles E. McGee is a native North Carolinian who has worked his way West across the state. Born in Wilmington, Charles grew up in Sanford, and then moved to Chapel Hill for his undergraduate studies and ultimately, law school. He completed his move West in 2006 by joining Steven in Asheville, where he and his wife raise a young daughter and son.
Following law school at the University of North Carolina, Charles began his legal career at the North Carolina Court of Appeals, serving as a Law Clerk for the Honorable Patricia Timmons-Goodson. After then-Judge Timmons-Goodson’s retirement in 2005, he remained at the Court as a Clerk for Emergency Recall Judges Joseph R. John, Sr., John B. Lewis, Jr., and Donald L. Smith. When she was appointed to the North Carolina Supreme Court, Charles rejoined Justice Timmons-Goodson’s chambers in 2006, and worked again with her until beginning private practice in Asheville with Steven at Northup, McConnell & Sizemore, PLLC. After working together successfully for more than ten years, Steven and Charles decided to open their own firm – Sizemore McGee, PLLC – with a goal of providing their clients with the same dynamic and efficient legal services they have grown to expect.
Charles prides himself on being responsive to his clients and advocating their interests through pragmatic and effective arguments. He endeavors to maintain credibility in the courts and respect from opposing counsel and parties, and is humbled and pleased that none of his and Steven’s clients hesitated to continue their relationship when Sizemore McGee, PLLC was formed.
“Steve and I formed this firm with many goals in mind, chief among them continuing the business and personal relationships we have built with our clients over many years. We recognize the burdens the workers’ compensation system places on businesses and the impact of medical and lost time payments, administrative and litigation expenses, and losses in productivity and morale associated with workers’ compensation claims. We enjoy working closely with our clients to advocate their complex and multi-layered interests while simultaneously controlling costs and mitigating risks in claims. We pursue cases diligently but are careful not to utilize our clients’ time or money to engage in frivolous litigation.”
