POWERHOUSE OF FAMILY LAW
OK.... STOP RIGHT HERE AND take a few minutes to read this if you need a family law attorney because.... HELEN IS INCREDIBLE! Helen is a very committed and passionate lawyer, she will fight for you with all she has, believe me! Helen is professional, knowledgeable, prompt with replies and a class act. She cares about her clients and is objective, always informing or having her paralegal, Stephanie Dise, who is also ACES, informing her clients of various solutions and next steps while remaining supportive and caring. She works hard for her clients and their families.The most confident and educated representation I have ever experienced! DO NOT wait another minute guessing or loosing sleep!! Put your mind at ease knowing this team of aggressive, educated , and confident lawyers has your back!! This was beyond my best expectation. I highly recommend Helen Casale and the others in this firm. I am forever grateful to her. She's the BEST and her staff is excellent too :)

Highly recommend
I hired Helen a few years back to help with a custody and support issues. My ex-husband was a police officer and I felt unprotected and alone—until I hired Helen. Not only did she fight for me in getting child support and full custody, she gave me valuable advice that allowed me to see my ex for what he was. Now, my kids are graduating college, I also was able to go back to school and get advanced degrees since I had the monetary support for my kids. We are definitely a success story!! Thanks, Helen!

Amazing attorney!
Helen worked hard to bring my case to an overall and positive resolution. She was aggressive but conscious of fees and walked me through the entire process. Definitely would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or custody matter.

Became kind of hostile
I had been in a relationship that was ending. I was essentially cut off financially and socially at this point, but had to secure my belongings and money my father had left me after I found out my ex had cheated on me and was planning to oust me to move the new suitor into our home. Of note, my now ex made substantially more money than I, as I was in nursing school and hadn’t graduated yet. (My ex also supported me in my first year as a nursing school student, but as many people with narcissistic tendencies, she had cut me off from my friends and family, and since I was now being supported by her, she had all control over my financials) My father had died and left me a pretty good sun of money. A month later was when I learned I was being cheated on. My ex made comments that she was planning on coming for the money my father left me. At which point I contacted Helen for what I heard was her expertise in this area. I explained the situation. She explained to me that my money was my money and that since I was not married, I was entitled to every penny my father had left to me. We drew up an agreement. I had been in contact with Helen and her assistants numerous times with the understanding that I would be contacted about any communication between her office and my ex. I was sent a draft of the agreement to look over for final to be written up after my ok. I received a response from my ex to the email/agreement that hadn’t been finalized by me. When I asked Ms. Casale about clearing with me before sending out the agreement, she didn’t get back to me immediately. When she finally got back to me, she became hostile- threatening that she was going to drop the case and telling me that I should maybe find another attorney to finish out the agreement and to finalize the rest of the issues with my ex. I plead with her to not do that because I didn’t know anyone else and was feeling quite vulnerable and abandoned by this person who I had paid a good chunk of money to retain for this matter. I’m not sure if there was something going on personally for her or if my manipulative and borderline (diagnosed) ex was in her ear, but Helen spoke to me in a very unprofessional manner after we had agreed on specific things to happen. She could have at least apologized about the miscommunication, but I never actually heard from her again. The rest of the agreement was finalized by her assistants/paralegal team, and I was able to get my money and belongings out before my ex could do anything to my things. So yes, everything ended up fine, but at the time I could have really used someone being a little kinder to me in that situation. I was a mess, as literally my whole world was turning upside down, and I had no friends to help me through at that point. And then to be made to feel like I had done something wrong in asking why the final draft wasn’t cleared by me (as originally agreed upon). While I would recommend her because there are very few lawyers that I know of who specifically deal with LGBTQIA+ Family matters, be very careful in how you deal with her as she can turn on you on a dime.

Average attorney with high retainer
Consulted and hired Helen for a custody/relocation case. Other parent had 60% custody, I had 40% per week. Other parent attempting to move 1,200 miles away. My case was in front of very difficult Judge who Helen had not been had experience with. At the court date, Helen was at the mercy of the judge's pre-trial opinion for a settlement, unfortunately. I was frustrated overall with this poor settlement and Helen took it personally. This ultimately led to a 20-minute 'clash' between client and attorney. I asked Helen to request a few terms that would benefit me and my child. She changed 1 or 2 items that benefited me and returned with a printed unsigned settlement. I did ask for additional terms, but Helen was reluctant to even ask the Judge. The most important part of this review is that Helen suggested she would walk out and that I find a new lawyer. I believe this to be unprofessional. There were times Helen displayed legitimate knowledge of an experienced attorney. I would have enjoyed to see her in a trial, however, this Judge made it difficult for all clients and attorneys.

Consult advice poor fit
I had a consultation based on referral for a complex family law case. I explained my situation and her thoughts were I should get the school week and the ex should get three of four weekends a month, school holidays and a bulk of the summer. She implied this is schedule she had for past clients. This definitely was not a schedule I could live with so went elsewhere and hired someone else and I got a way better schedule in my favor than that sub par one she was suggesting.

Sold out my kid
Helen was horrible to me and sold out my kid. My ex has a terminal illness, but Helen refused to negotiate in the divorce for my ex to provide for child support after her death. My ex spent down her retirement on Helen's watch during the divorce and was uninsurable due to her incurable cancer. When I finally changed attorneys, it didn't take more than a phone consult for him to help me understand the law and how Helen had ignored my child's best interest. This was on top of Helen treating me like dirt. I expected her to fight for me, not against me when I hired her. I wish I had never met her.
