“In our practice, there’s no client whose case is too small for me to pay proper attention to, because I measure our firm by how we treat each individual client; and I mean that seriously. That’s what I preach at my firm. My dad taught me when clients went out of his office, he made them feel important. That their case was important. That they were important. And so that I think has been kind of a touchstone in my career is when somebody walks in my office, I want to really let them know that our feelings are real, and I want them to know that we’re passionate.” David S. Casey, Jr.

Over his 40-year legal career, David has been successful in representing plaintiffs against both single individuals and major national corporations.
