Charles Peters has focused on criminal defense for his entire legal career. Among his peers and clients, he is known for his professionalism and knowledge, taking the time to discuss and explain your case, going to trial, relentlessly fighting for his clients, and getting results. In addition to criminal defense Charles focuses on civil rights violations, police brutality, and the role of mental health, racial, and economic inequality to address some of the injustices of the criminal justice system. Charles is proud to take criminal cases in all counties in the state of Texas, his main office is located in San Antonio. 
Charles came to San Antonio to attend St. Mary’s Law School and after graduating in 2015, stayed to help those in need. During law school Charles interned with the Federal Public Defender’s Office and the St. Mary’s Criminal Clinic where he was privileged to help many less fortunate clients who otherwise would not have been able to receive quality legal assistance without these important organizations. Coming from a farming background in a rural Texas town, Charles learned the value of hard work and giving back to his community. Values that he brings to his law practice and his new community in San Antonio.  
Charles completed his bachelor’s degree at Texas A&M University in 2010 with a degree in political science with a focus on law and policy. In his leisure time he enjoys rock climbing, country-western and swing dancing, reading, and backpacking.
