Stephen G. Charpentier

Stephen G. Charpentier is a trial lawyer and Orlando medical malpractice lawyer of proven experience who has dedicated his skills exclusively to helping injured victims recover from wrongdoers and insurance companies.

After coming to Brevard County in 1965, Steve received his undergraduate degree from the University of Central Florida. From there he went on to earn his Juris Doctor degree (with honors) in 1981 from Florida State University’s College of Law. He immediately passed his bar exam and became a member of the Florida Bar the same year. Following graduation, he spent two years working for an established Brevard County law firm, practicing primarily civil litigation law. In 1983, he joined one of Brevard’s larger firms, where he worked exclusively on plaintiff’s personal injury cases and later became a partner. He resigned in early 1989 to start Childress Charpentier, P.A., with Bert Childress.

In 1990, 1994 and again in 1997, Attorney Charpentier was presented with the Eagle Talon Award by the Florida Justice Association. In 2000, he was presented with the Silver Eagle Award by the Florida Justice Association for outstanding leadership. He has been awarded an AV® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is the organization’s highest honor. This rating is based exclusively on opinions expressed by confidential sources and is the result of extensive review of legal expertise and professional reputation. He has also been a longstanding member of the Trial Lawyers Section of the Florida Bar.

In addition to his skill and experience in representing injured victims, Attorney Charpentier is involved in the local community. He is a co-moderator of the People’s Law School, which he helped establish. He is also active in various civic and charity fund-raising organizations including Safe Kids Source of Safety Board. When not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with his family, motorcycling, water sports, and reading.
