Charlie Phung, Esq.


Orange County Partner

Prior to joining CBE Law, Mr. Phung began his legal career in the civil arena litigating Elder Abuse and Medical Malpractice claims. There, he was able to hone his litigation skills by managing cases from inception to resolution and successfully defending against motions for summary judgment and writs of mandamus.

Since 2011, Mr. Phung has been working primarily in the defense of workers’ compensation claims on behalf of insurance companies, third-party administrators and employers. Mr. Phung has been successful in every aspect of the defense of workers’ compensation claims including defending a fraudulent claim against the Department of Social Services – In-Home Supportive Services wherein the Applicant was found to have been guilty of violating insurance Code Section 1871.4(a)(2) and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $64,498.00.

Mr. Phung brings a unique aggressive approach designed to efficiently defend and mitigate liability for his clients. He understands that each client is different and curates the defense in collaboration with the client in order to promote their best interests.

Mr. Phung enjoys giving back by mentoring law students, attorneys, and paralegals. He also pays it forward by taking pro-bono cases. One of his proudest legal achievements was successfully preventing a disabled elderly woman from being homeless by successfully appealing the Orange County Housing Authority’s decision to not grant her a housing voucher, which she had depended on to live since 1999.

In his free time, Mr. Phung loves to spend time with his family and friends. He is an avid sports fan and fanatically supports the Detroit Lions.
