He also served on the editorial staff of the San Diego Law Review, and Volume 59 featured his comment, “Taking One for the Team: COVID-19 Eviction Moratoria as Regulatory Takings.” After receiving his Juris Doctor, Charley joined Wright, Finlay & Zak where he practices real estate litigation, including lender and servicer liability defense, wrongful foreclosure defense, and title disputes.
