Charlie Trippe employs the skills, judgment and knowledge he developed as a senior government and corporate lawyer, and as a national and regional firm litigation partner, in the resolution of difficult and high-value disputes.

Charlie brings deep experience in the transportation industry, government, and private law practice to the table. During his career, he has developed both sophisticated litigation judgment and practical insight into how to resolve disputes flexibly and pragmatically.

He is admitted to practice in Florida, New York and Massachusetts. Some of his career milestones are service as the chief counsel of the Federal Aviation Administration; senior in-house attorney with CSX Transportation, Inc., one of the country’s largest freight railroads; general counsel to Florida Governor Rick Scott; and general counsel to Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody. He was also a litigation partner in the New York office of Jones Day, one of the nation’s leading law firms.

In private practice in Jacksonville, Florida, as a partner of Moseley Prichard Parrish Knight and Jones, from 2001 to 2011 and 2012 to 2017, Charlie focused on complex and high-risk civil litigation, representing business clients, including major corporations as well as entrepreneurs, with an emphasis on transportation matters.
