    Charles Robert Raines is a well known lawyer/judge from the state of pennsylvania. Raines was born to Chester Raines (b. 1726) and Abigail Downs Raines (b.1725) in 1749. The Raines family settled in Pennsylvania in the 1690s. Chester Baines was one of the first doctors in Philadelphia. The Raines family carries respect and renown in the state. Raines studied law, and became a successful lawyer in his state, opening his practice at the young age of nineteen, the same year he graduated from Harvard and returned to his family home in Philadelphia.

    Raines worked as a lawyer in the city of Philadelphia throughout the 1770s until the onset of the American Revolutionary war, which he enlisted in with his friend and neighbor Henry Worthington. The two were soldiers together in the Battles of Brandywine, Battle of Clouds, and the Paoli Massacre, but would be separated at this point. Raines would continue his tour with the military until 1780, when he would be honorably discharged and sent home due to a need in Philadelphia at the time for accredited and competent trial lawyers.

    Raines would return to his law practice at this time and climb the ranks in the social circles to the point that in 1784, he was appointed to a Judgeship in the state of Pennsylvania, where he has continued to serve admirably, presiding over cases in a fair and balance manner.
