Firm Overview

Our clients are not simply cases. We value our relationship with each and every person and business we represent and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients legal and business interests. We recognize the importance of each of our clients unique needs, and we will always strive to exceed your expectations to attempt to resolve all legal matters in a timely, cost-conscientious, and successful manner. It is a shame that service is something which clients so rarely associate with attorneys these days. We believe this is wrong. Our firm focuses on the entire client experience from first consultation to the conclusion of the legal matter. We provide each client with direct access to the attorney who is handling the case. We understand how the stress our clients experience throughout the legal process can be overwhelming, and we do our best to make our clients feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Our goal is to build an ongoing, meaningful, and trusting relationship with every one of our clients through hard work, integrity, and by treating each client as a new friend who simply needs a helping hand. Our firm has over 250 years combined legal experience. If we don't have the legal experience and background to solve your problem, we will connect you with right lawyer who does. We aim to be your trusted legal advisors and our firm serves as the outside general counsel for hundreds of businesses and individuals.

Chris Charles

Provident Law

The common thread that connects every Fortune 500 CEO is a shared passion for what they do. While in business school at ASU, Mr. Charles asked himself, "What am I passionate about? Problem solving!" He then recognized that he generally enjoys helping others. Putting these two together, the law was a natural fit.

Surrounded by REALTORS for most of his life, a law practice focused on real estate was inevitable. Christopher has developed a niche practice helping property owners resolve real estate related disputes. Anywhere from breach of contract, deficiency judgments, evictions, easement disputes, to fraud, Chris has the experience and expertise to get clients results.

Prior to opening Provident Law, PLLC, Christopher represented the Arizona Association of REALTORS (AAR) as a "Hotline Attorney" where he advised Arizona's brokers on real estate legal emergencies. As a Hotline Attorney, he helped resolve hundreds of real estate disputes.

Real estate is anything but boring. Rarely do real estate cases go to trial, but when they do, Christopher is ready. He has tried more than a dozen trials; recently he fought valiantly for his clients property rights in a five-day jury trial following an appeal and a four-year battle in the Superior Court. Simply put, he never gives up.

Christopher serves as an Arbitrator and Mediator for AAR. Problem solving doesn't always mean costly and protracted litigation. That is why he is a big proponent of alternative dispute resolution. Mediation and arbitration are often far more efficient and cost-effective means for resolving property disputes than litigation.

Chris loves sharing his passion for the law with others. He is a licensed real estate instructor and teaches continuing education classes to attorneys and REALTORS with the State Bar of Arizona and at the Arizona School of Real Estate and Business.

He also loves to write: he is a published author and contributes a monthly column to the Arizona Real Estate Journal and The Record Reporter.
