I don’t write reviews for public posting but the posting of “a Family client of Feb 26, 2013” compelled me in this case. Mr Cassman handled the last two years of my extremely difficult and messy 5 - 6 years span custody – support matter at Marion County of Indiana.
I have gone through multiple attorneys for the same case. And my experience ranges from deceit by some of these attorneys, bias, stereotypes to gross injustices among the many. Mr. Cassman rescued my situation.
It may be important to note that Mr. Cassman accepted to handle my case at the time other law firms (at least three) believe the case cannot be redeemed. Each of these family law firms blamed previous attorneys for the mess. Interestingly, to Mr. Cassman, the injustices and the status of the matter represent why he should take up the matter. Mr. Cassman did not only redeemed the matter but won the case. The other party also lost on appeal!
He is honest and very professional. If you need a knowledgeable person to represent your interest while protecting the interests of your minor (if any), this is your attorney. I strongly believe credit should be given when due, Mr. Cassman did a great job. And I would like to encourage you to post your comments about Mr. Cassman you consider him to represent your interest. He did extensive research on my case. His fees are comparable, it’s not the least in Indiana but certainly not close to the highest.

I was a client of Ryan Cassman. He represented me in a family law matter. Plainly stated I did not like that he put off trial preparation until the last minute, was unprepared for hearings, sent an associate instead of appearing himself and grossly underestimated his fees and expenses, estimating $2,500-5,000 and actually billing nearly $19,000. In my opinion Cassman appeared uncomfortable in the court room and an Indiana Odyssey Case Management System search indicates that many of his cases settle in mediation.

Having been involved in a lengthy divorce/custody proceeding (3 years and still going) that has encompassed almost every issue a family law case could entail, I might be in the best position to critique Ryan's abilities. I am a father who was awarded full custody in a state and county where that is fairly uncommon, so needless to say, I cannot say enough good things about Ryan. He's been with me thru the lowest of lows, highest of highs and everything in between. He's knowledgeable, professional and patient. I think the last characteristic is probably the most important when it comes to the practice of family law. I really struggled to think of anything negative in his abilities. The only thing I could think of is maybe the response time in communication was a little slower than I preferred, however, I will qualify this by saying that I am also an attorney, so my response time expectations may have been at times unreasonable. Overall, if you are looking for one of the best family law attorneys in the area, you cannot go wrong with Ryan.

Ryan is the ultimate professional. I had absolutely no idea what to expect with my divorce and he answered any and all questions I gave him. He is very patient and keeps you on track with what is important. My case could have headed south; however, with his calm demeanor and ability to relay information back and forth between me and opposing counsel, the case settled without a hiccup. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a knowledgable, sensible, and seasoned attorney.

I did not know what to expect, but Ryan helped me through my divorce. I appreciated how Ryan explained things to me and always answered my questions. He was an advocate for me and I am happy I had him on my side. I have no hesitation about recommending Ryan.

Ryan assisted me with the adoption of my granddaughter. The case took about a year and it was successful. As much as I liked Ryan as my attorney I did not like the company he worked for at the time.

Ryan represented me during my divorce. Face to face meetings were productive, and good use of both of our time. Ryan was responsive to both emails and phone calls. I felt he watched out for my best interest in use of his time. The divorce should have been "easy", but when a few curve balls were thrown, Ryan had sound advice and access to very good experts. Ryan's demeanor was always professional and pleasant. I would recommend Ryan to a friend.

Ryan handled my divorce a couple years back and did an outstanding job. He was very fair and honest. He also responded back to my phone calls and emails very promptly and has a great deal of knowledge to share and help me out of my situation. I would highly recomment him to anyone who is going through a divorce.

Mr. Cassman is an extremely professional and knowledgeable attorney. I went through a difficult divorce which included a lengthy day of mediation. Ryan was prepared and guided me through the process, looking at all angles. I am very happy with his service and the outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need.

Mr. Cassman was my attorney for almost 3 years while dealing with an extemely difficult spouse and hence case. Mr. Cassman remained professional, extremely patient and continued to advise me properly. I can honestly say I was glad to have had him on my side. I felt compelled to write a review after reading the last one. We all know divorce is not pleasant but do we really have to take our frustrations out on our attorney?
