    Meet Casey

    Law is a thinking profession, not just a doing job. I became a lawyer because it gives me the opportunity to be of service to my community. I love the creativity involved with handling virtually every case.

    I believe strongly in the power of people to do the right thing—even in the adversarial litigation process. When I can solve a problem for my clients and bring them back to the status quo, or make their lives better for having worked with me, that is the most rewarding part of practice. Reciprocal trust, courtesy, and respect are the hallmarks of the attorney-client relationship.  I strive to ensure not only that my clients are listened to, but also that they feel heard. I craft legal solutions that take each client’s unique needs and goals into consideration and tailor those solutions to better serve my clients.

     

    During law school, I interned with the Juvenile and Family Court Judges of the 26th Judicial District.  My time in juvenile court taught me the strong impact family relationships have on all aspects of a person’s life. Think about it: The example set by parents has a lasting effect on a child’s worldview. What I enjoy most about practicing family law is it gives me the opportunity to help people decide for themselves what happens to their children—decisions that will have a long-lasting impact on their child’s life. The most rewarding part of practicing family law and civil litigation is giving people a fair fight. Win or lose—I feel a sense of accomplishment when my clients thank me for giving them a voice.

     

    I can make my client’s life easier by handling the day-to-day technical and legal aspects of their case, so they can focus on running their business. Whether it’s getting your business started or working towards building your brand, I view my role as a facilitator to help my clients implement their vision. If I can take some of the stress off of my clients then I have done my job.

     

    My family is my strongest support system. They don’t just tell me what I want to hear, but what I need to hear.  That’s how I treat my clients—like family, by walking them through the good, bad, and the ugly and telling them what they need to know.
