Charles "Chuck" R. Coulter, 79, passed away on March 24, 2020 at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He joined the law practice of Stanley, Bloom, Mealy and Lande (which later became Stanley, Lande and Hunter), in Muscatine in 1965, where he specialized in corporate law, real estate law, wills, and estate planning. Chuck’s legal skills were exceptional and he was routinely called and relied upon by his colleagues to meet clients’ legal needs. Chuck was an active participant in Iowa State and American Bar Associations and co-founded the ABA Section on Law Practice Management, where he was elected to chair the Section in 1991. Fellow attorneys across the country looked to him for expertise on the subject of law practice management, and he frequently wrote and lectured on related topics.
Chuck was the consummate gentlemen and his knowledge and professionalism will be sorely missed by the members of SLH and the clients and community he faithfully served.
