Curriculum Vitae


"What I like about Charles Vethan is that he combines great listening skills and practical ideas with an excellent grasp of the law. It also helps that Mr. Vethan’s energy and desire to find a resolution do not wane late in the day, even when the parties’ frustrations mount and an impasse seems unavoidable. I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Vethan as a mediator."
