Hartline Barger Announces the Passing of Attorney, Charles Wayne Lyman

DALLAS, TX – Hartline Barger LLP, with saddened hearts, announce the passing of Charles Wayne Lyman, age 75, on Tuesday, the 17th of November 2020.

Charlie was born in 1945 in Arkadelphia, AR, and after graduating from the University of Arkansas, he and Ginny moved to Houston, where he attended law school at the University of Houston. Additionally, he served our Nation as an officer in the United States Army in Vietnam.

Upon returning home from the army, Charlie practiced law in his adopted hometown of Houston, for over 50 years. He tried his first lawsuit to a jury verdict two weeks after going to work for the firm (then known as Talbert, Gissel & Stone) in 1972. Since that time, he had tried over 200 cases to verdict.

Charlie’s practice focused on representations of individuals, and companies, large and small, in construction-related litigation, products liability medical device litigation, professional-malpractice claims, premises-liability cases, personal-injury matters, plant-explosion cases, catastrophic industrial accident cases, as well as all other types of civil litigation. He was Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for more than thirty years.

With his keen wit, endless work ethic and caring heart, Charlie led a remarkable life. Charlie will be deeply missed by his family and friends, and will always be remembered for his integrity, generosity and loyalty.

In lieu of customary remembrances, please feel free to make memorial contributions in Charlie’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105; or to the American Heart Association, 10060 Buffalo Speedway, Houston, TX 77054.
