Charmaine T. M. Chiu is an attorney and shareholder at Smith Hulsey & Busey. The first woman to serve on the firm’s Board of Directors, she is also the Chair of the firm’s Healthcare Practice Team. In this role, she has expanded the firm’s historic and deep commitment to healthcare systems, hospitals, physician practices, and other providers throughout Northeast Florida. She is most proud of the fact that the firm’s Healthcare Practice Team is a valued partner in helping local providers develop their facilities, specialized clinical services, and practices – all with a view to ultimately better serve patients in our community. Charmaine believes in giving back to her fellow attorneys and has chaired both The Florida Bar’s Health Law Section and Healthcare Law Certification Committee.



A proud native of Jacksonville, Florida, she volunteers her time with area organizations focused on the arts and children’s healthcare advocacy; she is on the Board of Trustees of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, the Board of Directors of the Jacksonville Civic Orchestra, and the Community Advisory Committee for the First Coast Child Protection Team. Her most treasured role, however, is that of a daughter, sister, wife, and mother; and she is forever grateful to her family for their encouragement and love.
