Charles C. Bletsas

Senior Counsel

Charles Bletsas is senior counsel at Grant & Eisenhofer, where his primary area of practice is representing families and children in birth injury and birth trauma litigation. Of note, in 2024, Mr. Bletsas led the trial team in a $14 million jury verdict in Cook County, Illinois. G&E represented the estate of a baby who died at age four from his pre-birth neurologic injuries. Negligent emergency medicine care at The University of Chicago Medical Center led to a delay in his delivery, which caused the baby to suffer severe brain injuries, causing cerebral palsy, blindness, total dependency, and ultimately his premature death.

Prior to joining G&E, Mr. Bletsas was a partner at a Chicago firm focusing on medical malpractice defense and general civil litigation.  With a record of trial success spanning over 25 years, Mr. Bletsas’ entire career has been heavily focused on birth trauma cases, having litigated traumatic birth injury claims such as hypoxic ischemic injuries, brachial plexus injuries, and neonatal complications.

Mr. Bletsas is also skilled in attorney malpractice claims involving fiduciary issues, litigating complex financial fraud claims, commercial contracts, and construction negligence disputes.

Mr. Bletsas received his J.D., cum laude, from Wayne State University, where he served as a Senior Articles Editor of the Wayne Law Review. He received his B.A. in economics from the University of Michigan.
