Charles "Charlie" Brown is a Louisville native and graduate of duPont Manual High School. He studied psychology at Bellarmine University and law at Valparaiso University School of Law. In fear of another Northwest Indiana winter, Charlie returned to Louisville after his graduation from law school.
After law school, Charlie was first a Staff Attorney for a family court judge, and after that an Associate Attorney in a Louisville law firm. Seeing ample opportunity for innovation in the practice of law, and with some encouragement from Dad, Charlie struck out on his own. Charlie focused on offering those seeking a divorce a cheap, flat-fee, quick, and private means of getting an uncontested divorce.
To Charlie’s surprise, his new solo practice lasted a month, then another month, and then years. Next thing he knew, Charlie met a like-minded fellow and formed Barrow Brown, PLLC. Charlie, and Hugh, continue to devote their practice to divorce and family law matters. With a demanding desire to innovate and creatively problem-solve, Charlie and Hugh continue to hone and improve their practice; always eager to hear from clients about the firm’s processes and service.
Charlie lives in Anchorage with his wife, daughter, and dog Kimo. When he’s not in the office, Charlie enjoys traveling, being outdoors, woodworking, music, and occasionally, the nectar of the bluegrass – bourbon.

At possibly the worst time in my life Charles listened to my need for a divorce with kindness and patience. When my husband was incarcerated we had lost about a third of our income due to his Social Security being stopped. Charles made sure I got what I needed in the divorce to survive financially. For $1500 I could never have gotten the results I did anywhere else.
I found Charles to be a kind patient lawyer. My divorce was a very difficult one. I feel that the advise that Charles gave was the right direction to go.
Charles is was very knowledgeable regarding Kentucky family law. He was knew exactly what strategy to take in order to win my case. He was very professional in court and concentrated very much on how the law applied to my situation.
