After ruling out several other lawyers for various reasons, I found Mr. Casey on Avvo. In our initial consultation, he spoke with me for 90 minutes, an extremely generous amount of time, and I hadn't even hired him yet. When I did hire him, his fee was very affordable for someone on my limited income, and he even let me pay it in two parts. Although my case was very straightforward for an experienced attorney like Mr. Casey, he never tried to downplay its importance or make me feel that it was beneath him. He did a great job of always keeping me informed of his actions and what was required of me, and was always very quick to respond when I emailed him. On top of his professionalism, he was extremely personable and I legitimately enjoyed our meetings. While I hope to never need a criminal defense attorney again, it is comforting to know that Mr. Casey is ready and available should I ever need to call on him. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
Matthew Casey took my case through an online resource. I was presently living in Las Vegas, NV and had to turn myself into the Leon County jail in Tallahassee, FL. Upon arrival, and further review of the case, Mr. Casey considered that I was looking at 30 months to 5 years in state prison to atone for my fugitive status. I acquired all the character references that I could prior to leaving Las Vegas, per Mr. Casey's counsel. I was gratefully released after 19 days, time served for the fugitive and a one year mail-in probation with the contingency of release from probation after restitution was paid. I was homeless in Tallahassee for a period of 2 1/2 weeks until I was hired on by The Salvation Army as chaplain for a drug rehabilitation center in Texas. Mr. Casey's knowledge of common law coupled with his understanding of the procedures adapted by the prosecution is second to none... THANK YOU MR. CASEY
