Jo Ann Charron


JoAnn Charron has served the DFW area for more than a quarter of a century, with an initial focus on group, senior and individual benefits to offer the most competitive plans in health and business-specific policies.

An active member of the National Association of Health Underwriters, the Dallas Association of Health Underwriters and the Texas Association of Health Underwriters, JoAnn is also a member of the distinguished Leading Producers Round Table. She also continues to lobby in Washington, DC and in Austin on national and state health-related issues. She is certified with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Long Term Care and Small Group Designation.

Already a widely-respected leader in her industry, JoAnn teamed up with Rick Horch in 2004 – a merger that resulted in an expansion of the practice into the senior market with an emphasis on long-term care. It also gave Benefits Dallas even more knowledge and experience when it comes to dealing with the complicated maze that is Medicare.

JoAnn’s primary goal is to continue to meet her clients’ needs as they move through changes in their lives.

Michael Kelsheimer

Attorney/Partner, Gray Reed

Michael Kelsheimer focuses his practice on the employment law needs of Texas businesses and executives across several industries, including healthcare, oil and gas, construction and real estate. With more than 160 laws that impact the employment relationship, clients count on Michael to find effective solutions for every workplace problem they may encounter, both in and out of the courtroom. He has achieved favorable results in litigation before state and federal courts and in arbitration involving many issues, including non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, trade secret theft, all types of discrimination claims, executive employment agreements and FLSA wage and hour claims.

Michael is always on call to guide employers through day-to-day and emergency decisions regarding the hiring, compensation, investigation, discipline and termination of employees. He also prepares strategic documents, including employment agreements, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, separation agreements and comprehensive personnel policies. Outside the employment setting, Michael helps clients solve a variety of other challenging problems, including complex commercial disputes involving breach of contract, collections, fraud and DTPA claims.

After many years of practice, Michael knows that employers can be overwhelmed by technical jargon and long-winded explanations, and they often receive information or advice that’s flat out wrong. Amazed at how many books and online sources provide unreliable, impractical guidance on key employment issues, Michael created the Texas Employer Handbook, an online resource focused on giving business owners plain-English explanations of complex employment issues and helping them spot concerns before they become real problems.
