Organization Profile
Professional Biography

Charles “Chuck” Jeremiah is a Principal at Jackson Lewis' Houston office.  He represents employers as trial counsel in litigation. With over 25 years of experience and a strong track record handling hundreds of matters, Chuck knows how to formulate early, efficient and effective strategies, and lead a team to achieve the best possible results for clients. His practice includes all aspects of employment law with an emphasis on overtime, discrimination and non-compete/trade secret defense matters. He has successfully handled both single plaintiff and class/collective actions across various forums and at all trial stages.

With his keen understanding of the nuances of employment law, Chuck also regularly provides advice to in-house counsel and human resource professionals on the ever-evolving workplace landscape, regulatory compliance and risk mitigation. He has been Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2010.

Understanding that effective client communication and responsiveness are critical to representation, he always makes this a top priority. As a result, Chuck consistently receives favorable feedback from clients. A city attorney for a municipal client describes him as “a tenacious litigator…who understands the litigation process,” and a chief legal officer of a major IT services company referred to Chuck as “our business’ ‘Go-To’ attorney for all our employment law needs.” Another client from a six-week trial advised “he not only understood the law better than his opposing counsel, he was able to convey it to a jury” in a way other lawyers cannot. He also appreciated the positive communication, noting “[Chuck] listened to my concerns” and “cared about them.”

Chuck grew up with a passion for the advocacy-based American judicial system, including the fundamental right of all to vigorous representation and right to be heard. He considers it an honor to serve in the role of the client’s advocate and brings extraordinary energy and a deep knowledge of the law to all client matters. 

Chuck has been repeatedly recognized for his extensive pro bono service and participates in the Kids-in-Need-of-Defense (KIND) program and volunteers for the Star of Hope Mission.
