Highly recommend!!!
Casey is a great family law attorney in Fort Walton Beach, Florida! My child’s mother was refusing to give me a copy of valid life insurance per our child’s custody order and essentially fabricated a story saying I was asking for it because I was trying to harm her and her “Air force Career”. The mother was previously awarded a temp order because I wrongfully name called her husband for being in national news but was now trying to use a new fake claim to affect my time with our child. As ridiculous as the current allegations were I didn’t want to risk losing any time due to seeing previously how easily injunctions can be given. Casey was fully prepared and made the picture very clear to the judge the context of the situation was completely different than what the mother claimed. Thank you Casey.

TRUST HER 100%
She fought for my kids like they were her own. She is knowledgeable and has a plan always. We’ve won our battle so far and hopefully will not have much more to do. Shes only had to be in front of the judge for 28 minutes before our case was dismissed and part of that time was dealing with technical issues. She goes in there ready to fight for you! Her staff is normally always on top of everything for you and will make sure they do their best. Hopefully we don’t have to keep going BUT if we do I’m happy to have Casey to fight for us and be by our side. As it says in her paperwork TRUST HER. She will let you know anything needed! She’s upfront and to the point she’s not just here wasting your time and draining your money. Shes worth everything! Sincerely can not thank her enough! So happy to have been able to work with someone like her!

Divorce
I went through a nasty, disgusting divorce against an ex wife and her parents that had an unlimited supply of funds and who’s purpose was to destroy me as a father and a person. Casey and her team used facts, evidence, and the law to make sure no amount of money or lies was going to ruin me or my relationship with my children. I will never be able to show the happiness and how much better off I am because of what Casey has done for me and my children. Casey truly is an amazing person and the BEST family lawyer in town !!!! Highly highly recommend !!!!! Definitely the best lawyer in Shalimar !!!!

Highly Talented Family Law Attorney. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Casey was recommended to me by a colleague of hers. BEST DECISION I have made in this ongoing saga. She joined this fight after almost a year of my pervious lawyer stalling and trying to get me to settle. I have had three attorneys since my divorce in 2012, she is by far the most organized, ready, and powerful in court. Her institutional knowledge is unmatched. Her staff is just as professional and prompt as she is. I could go on for hours about this woman and her practice, but I will leave you with this. When you find your self in the family court world you'r fighting to do what is best for your children, dont you want the best fighting in your corner?

Divorce
Mrs.Waterhouse was very specific in helping me file an addeum to a non contested divorce , which in turn greatly helped my case. She made things much easier at the hearing. She is very well versed in acomendating advice she would give in the scenario of my situation. I highly recommend her, she was highly recommended to me.

7th Special Forces Group (A) Military Top Family Lawyer
Okaloosa is not the best when fighting for a fair custody/child support legal matter. This is for you Military personnel. Ms. Waterhouse assisted me in fighting one of the hardest family custody matter in Judges Flowers Chambers. According to Judge Flowers "this was one of the hardest custody case he has witness" Ms. Waterhouse, was in combat fighting the opponent to attention to detail. She was aggressive, firmed, and thought when getting me what I requested from her. Despite the other party false manipulations and negative description about my father capabilities. Ms. Waterhouse executed and reveal to the court the mother's lies because she only wanted me to loose timesharing percentage in order for her to received more child support. Ms. Waterhouse, call me, wrote me e-mails, we prepared for the case multiple times, she was very serious about my custody. She cares for Military and she is familiar with Military custody battles to regulation, statutes, and laws. I was very satisfied with her services, and I don't want you to loose your timesharing to a weak lawyer that only takes your money and don't performed when it matters. You only have one chance to get it right and she will get it right. From 7th Special Forces Group (A) and the Military here in this County I thank you and we Thank You for standing for my rights. Job Well Done. Thank You Ms. Casey God Knows how much I appreciated what you did for me and my Daughters. Ariana & Isabella will Thank you when they get older.

Great attorney as well as a good person
Ms Waterhouse handled a personal matter for me dealing with an ex girlfriend/fiancé. She is professional, and listens to her clients. When it comes to getting things done she does, and her work at reasonable cost, she is not out to just take your $. She works with you. When we went to court she was amazing as well as completely professional. My case was over but now I need to have Ms. Waterhouse handle this dealing with someone who can't let things go. I know she will do what it takes to handle it and get things settled. I highly recommend her for anyone dealing with any kind of family law issues .I live in Pa and it was amazing having someone like her handling things in Florida for me.

Wonderful person and awesome attorney.
What can I say....I owe her so much....I've been going through a terrible divorce for almost 8 years... Casey took it over the last 4.....her and her staff could not have been more helpful and attentive....always kept me abreast of what to expect and how she would handle it... Casey is very compassionate toward her clients...I know that first hand....kind and understanding...but make no mistake..when she hits the courtroom she's a beast...so proud of her and how she protected me...I simply couldn't have asked for better representation...this was the worst thing to ever go through in my life but Casey calmed the waters....as long as I live I can never repay her and what she did for me...thank you Casey....I'll always be in your debt...

Best Attorney in Okaloosa County
I cannot put into words the sincere and professional manner in which Ms Waterhouse represented me in a contempt charge for failing to pay my lifetime alimony (I was 3 yrs in arrears). She kept me out of jail and saved me a bucket of cash in penalties and interest. I was so impressed I hired her for another case to lower my alimony payments. Who knew in Florida it was legal to compare on current disability wage with mt wage when I got divorced 20 years ago! Even though we loss that one, I was stuck with my ex’s lawyer fees. She negotiated the fee down from $5000 to $1500 and even got me 90 days same as cash! Is there no end to what this highly capable law professional can accomplish? I have a 3rd case I am bringing against my ex and Casey is my attorney . You really need to put 100% faith in this attorney and hire her.

Casey Waterhouse is an excellent attorney
Casey Waterhouse and her staff were very helpful in my divorce proceedings. In our initial meeting Ms. Waterhouse spent almost two hours discussing my situation and helping me understand the process to end a marriage. She was both compassionate and professional, and I left that meeting with a certainty that she would do a good job. During the actual process of completing the required steps, I was kept informed of all activity along the way, and all of my questions and concerns were addressed quickly and completely. I would definitely give Ms. Waterhouse and her staff my highest recommendation.

THE BEST!!!!!! HONEST/LOYAL/SMART/REASONABLE
Ms. Waterhouse is the one you want on your side and not sitting across from you in a court room. She shows up ready and prepared. Each and every case she devotes her heart to and you are not just a file number. She is NOT greedy by any means and will not drive your bill up to line her pockets. if you are looking for an honest and loyal attorney go with her!!!!!! I have always felt like she was my "big" sister fighting for me and not just my attorney!!

Dissolution of Marriage Case
In 2014 I went through a tragic divorce that affected our entire family (children and grandchildren). Casey represented me superbly and was very professional and equitable in all of the complex issues related to my case. She is a very intelligent and adept attorney who knows how to approach each issue with her client's interest at heart. Casey thoroughly prepared me and herself for the required mediation session and it was successfully concluded within 4 hours. I have referred other clients to Casey for divorce matters and will continue to do so. And, I highly recommend Casey to you for any family matters litigation...she's the best!

She helped me sprint to the finish line
After trying to fill out the paperwork together for months on my own, my ex surprises me with the fact that he is moving out of state. He called to say he was moving in a week! I knew this had to be handled and quickly. After having heard from friends about how great Casey is at Family Law, I called. I called on a Friday afternoon, met with her Monday afternoon and she had everything done for me to sign by Wednesday afternoon. She really took a personal interest in me and completely understood my need for urgency. Really she is just so personable and easy to work with. I hope to never personally need her help with family law in the future, but if I do, I know I'm in great hands!

Efficient, Intelligent and Promp
When going through my divorce I chose a lawyer who I was told was reputable. I paid near $30,000 to this lawyer over a time period of 2 years. I never got any resolution and was afraid to switch lawyers. After consulting with Ms. Waterhouse and learning so much more about my rights in about an hour, I realized it was time to switch. The switch was near effortless and Casey was able to amicably come to an agreement with my ex husband's lawyer in less than 6 months. I wish I had known about her and hired her from the beginning. She is intelligent, quick witted, reasonable and easy to approach. She returns calls and has everything done in a timely fashion. It is with my highest recommendation you speak to Ms. Waterhouse when looking to get somewhere with your legal matter.

Casey did a fantastic job taking care of my particular situation. When I brought my case to her, she was very proactive & what could've turned out to be a long haul court experience was completed and finished in a matter of days. Her experience & professional knowledge helped me immensely in this case. I highly recommend Casey & I believe she will be one of the better lawyers in Okaloosa county!
