Trusted Counsel to the Wine Industry

One Of Napa Valley’s Most Trusted Wine Industry Attorneys Since 1983

Chuck Meibeyer came to the Napa Valley as a young lawyer, knowing little about the wine industry, after a year handling litigation matters at a large national law firm headquartered in San Francisco.  He never regretted making the move to the Napa Valley, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  From his arrival he was captivated by the challenges and rewards of a wine country law practice and has dedicated his career to providing the best possible advice and counsel to his clients.  He has been a partner with two distinguished law firms, Napa’s largest law firm Dickenson Peatman & Fogarty, and he was recruited to help the prestigious Coblentz Patch Duffy and Bass law firm in San Francisco open up a wine country law practice.  But Chuck enjoys most running his own firm dedicated to helping his clients without the challenges posed by the complex rules and procedures necessary in a larger law firm.  He looks forward to continuing the work he loves.
