Charles “Chuck” Heran joined Martin, Harding and Mazzotti, LLP in 2002 and brought with him a wealth of litigation experience.
After graduating from Boston College in 1977 with a B.S. degree in Biology, Chuck attended the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. Upon completion of law school and passing the Michigan Bar in 1981, he began clerking for a district judge.
