Practice areas

During my childhood, I watched my parents suffer through financial issues with no direction or guidance. These events motivated me to become a Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) and a lawyer in order to help people in similar circumstances.

 

I attended Florida International University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Accounting and went on to become a CPA. Thereafter, I earned a Law degree from the University of Miami.

 

My first job as a law clerk was at Legal Services of Greater Miami Inc., a non-profit organization which provides legal assistance to elderly and indigent individuals. I remained with this organization through my years in law school and upon graduation accepted a position as an Associate in their Housing and Taxation department. I assisted clients facing foreclosure and eviction to remain in their homes. I also helped clients in economic hardship to file for bankruptcy and represented clients before the Internal Revenue Service.

 

I learned a lot in those years at the front lines. Most of all, I learned that the law can help a person to heal and move forward with life. Bankruptcy Law affords an individual the opportunity to start over and regain financial stability. After my time at Legal Services, I decided to open a law practice with a primary focus in Bankruptcy. Ever since then I have devoted my efforts to assist people and businesses find relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

 

No one ever dreams or aspires to file for bankruptcy or be faced with foreclosure. Life happens, unemployment, salary reductions, forced retirement, divorce, illness or simply increasing costs and stagnant compensation. Part of life is coping with unexpected and unfavorable events.

 

My job is to help you cope with the unexpected and catastrophic financial events. My objective is to get you back to a sound financial path. Let me help you. Call today for a free consultation where we can discuss your goals and whether Bankruptcy can help you achieve them. It's never too late to hit the "restart" button in your life! Find out how.

An Attorney That Saved Us During COVID
If you are scared, nervous, anxious and don’t know what you should do about your current financial situation and you need hope please call Clare. She is an attorney that you can trust to help you. She always acts in your best interests and will give you the best advice that you need. There is light at the end of the tunnel. No one will worker for you than her. Her staff is so friendly. And they always respond to you quickly when you have questions and handling all your case needs. This is a genuine review from a real person with a family that has been thru it all: job loss, Covid, hospital bills. I don’t know what we would have done without Clare and her team.

A warm shelter during the storm
Due to unfortunate circumstances, I had no choice but to file for bankruptcy at the beginning of this year. Clare Casas' law offices was the closest bankruptcy office to me, and I am so thankful she was. Clare and her team made this awful financial process easy and bearable. She is surrounded by a team of professional and thoughtful staff that are made available at any time. Entering the office space itself you feel a positive and safe feeling surrounded by a well needed warmth during a difficult time. I highly recommend Clare as a bankruptcy lawyer.

Phenomenal Service! She is your Lawyer!
If I could award more gold stars for Clare Casas and her staff, I would. From the very first meeting, I felt like Clare could really address my needs and calm my fears. Clare was very clear and thorough in explaining the steps and process for filing for my situation. Her staff was always professional, knowledgeable, and patient, but mostly, everyone was very kind. I never felt overwhelmed or lost, and all my questions were answered with care. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Clare Casas as your Bankruptcy Lawyer! Don't look elsewhere!

Amazing
I have to say I had the best experience (attorney)with the worst scenario ( filing bankruptcy) I can’t explain enough how amazing the attorney and her staff are. I never felt like I was pressured, rushed or forgotten where in fact I felt that I understood the entire process, I was given plenty of time to ask question last and to fully understand what the process was . The communication both email and over the phone was amazing! My first meeting with her I knew she was what I needed for my situation. She took her time to Anwser every little question until I understood completely . Throughout the entire I was kept informed or what is going on which made me feel even more comfortable . I wasn’t some client she didn’t remember but I truly felt taken care of personally and respectfully. Her entire staff was amazing! They care and so does she! Anyone scared of this whole process please know you will leave her office feeling a million times better!!

THANK YOU!
My husband and I were in a difficult financial situation after some unexpected events in our lives. Looking for a good, honest and reliable lawyer seemed impossible but we came across Clare Casas name and from the first visit we knew we had found the right one. Sure enough, the process takes its time but her and her staff were there to assist every step of the way not only with their expertise but with their encouraging words. Thank you for helping us navigate through this process and giving us peace of mind. We highly recommend you!

Attorney Clare Casas Walked me through chapter 13 with incredible compassion, patience and skill. The process was much smoother than I ever imagined and Clare was always available by phone or email for my many questions. Everything was filed within one month of contacting her.

The A Team
Selecting an attorney may be a very difficult and daunting decision. After months of search I decided to meet with Clare Casas she was a beacon of hope so knowledgeable, informative, calm, and pleasant demeanor. she was always available to me, knew all the details of the case without hesitation, her office staff are very helpful, professional and knowledgeable as well, they are all fully bilingual but you could not tell the difference. To me finding attorney casas's office was a slam dunk. No body is perfect but this attorney and her office are the A+ team ... good.

The best!
I was very fortunate to have hired Clare for my bankruptcy. From my first phone call to her thru the end she was right there to answer any concerns & questions I had never having to wait long to reply to an email or vm. She was compassionate & caring & helped put me at ease during this stressful time. She presented me with all my options & made sure I fully understood. After speaking via phone to other attorneys, I knew after speaking with Clare on the phone that I was comfortable with her. I made the appointment to meet & after a long consult I began the process. I highly recommend Clare to anyone looking for a kind, compassionate, professional attorney! I give her an A+ on communication which was/is so important to me. Every phone call and/or email was promptly returned & by Clare herself!

Superb Professional AND Compassionate Service
Coming to grips with a failing financial situation is frightening and demoralizing. I tried a debt relief/consolidation service and was then hit by lawsuits while in that process. This left me considering bankruptcy - the thought of which terrified me. I did my research, reading reviews for BK attorneys in my area, and came across Clare's firm. She came well recommended, so I screwed up my courage and made an appointment. Clare was professional, very calm and understanding and that demeanor carries forward through her staff as well. Everyone is exceedingly kind and compassionate. Clare asked thoughtful questions about my situation and at no point left me feeling demeaned or judged. She listened as I talked about my fears and my feeling of having failed, despite best efforts to keep the financial ship afloat. She reviewed how a bankruptcy works and what the next steps would be in getting started. I walked out of the consultation feeling better and shortly thereafter decided to proceed with the bankruptcy. My only regret is not having sought this avenue earlier. It is not an easy step, nor a short process, but I think it was the best decision I could have made.

Fully satisfied
Attorney Clare Casas is an excellent professional and as per my personal experience I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to file for bankruptcy. I had the chance to compare her with other attorneys who told me all sort of things like, my case was not possible to be handled or even tried to take advantage of my particular situation (in the first place if it was not for one of them, I would not have been in the problem I was in…) Clare Casas was very patient to walk me through the entire process, she didn’t use any intimidating tactics to rush me or press me at all, yet she worked with me at my own pace and didn’t move forward until she found the best course of action/solution for my case. I don’t have any other than good things to say about her and I do appreciate having been assisted not only by such a competent attorney but also by an awesome person.

Professional representation with a personal caring touch
In probably one of the lowest points in my life I met with Clare Casas to discuss my debt situation and options. They say 1st impressions are usually the right ones, well I can honestly say that is very true with Clare. No judgements, no blame, listened to my issues, planned the path to resolution and relief, then guided me through it, and has been there every step of the way. Regardless of when I email her, within hours, I generally have a response. No question is silly, she explained and walked me through every step of the filing, court appearance, expectations. Half way through this my marriage as a result crumpled, and I was a wreck, again, Claire was compassionate and understanding, adjusted the filing for this new series of events, even counseled with my divorce attorney as to the consequences of these actions. The road ahead is still rocky, but because of Clare Casas I see a bright light at end of the tunnel, my stress has been reduced 1,000 %, and I owe it to her. I whole heartedly would recommend her services, and her entire office staff and assistants have always been great as well. I honestly reflect from time to time that the day I walked through her door for the first time was when I was able to get my life back. Thank you Clare.

Clare A. Casas is an Excellent Lawyer and Caring Person
We were having credit card debt problems, and because of reduced income we weren't able to keep making the payments. We tried everything possible from contacting each bank directly to reach payment agreements and close the accounts, to contacting a non for profit consolidation agency. Sadly after going through all of the options no one was able to help us. We were left with only one option, Bankruptcy. Needless to say, we were very scare about it. However after meeting with Clare, she was able to explain every part of the process in the simplest of ways and always answer all of our questions. Also, her staff was always there ready to walk us through any issues we had during the process. They made sure that all the documents we needed were there and kept us in check if they weren't. Thank you Clare for making this scary-legal process seem relatively easy and less scary because of your support throughout. But most of all thank you for allowing us to have a new beginning. To anyone who is going through a similar ordeal we highly recommend that you contact Clare A. Casas, you'll be in excellent hands.

Excellent lawyer
Ms. Casa is an excellent, knowledgeable and experienced lawyer. Her professionalism goes beyond meeting expectations. I was within days of loosing my house in auction in Broward County Court. I am a single mother with two children and was struggling. I did everything to trying to saved my house. The modifications were denied three times by the bank. I spent lots of money hiring others attorney who promised they were help me with the house situation and it was not true. I prayed everyday, eventhough the bank, the court, the bad lawyers told me I had a sale date; my heart told me No. I did not have a way out until a current client of Ms. Casa advised me to go see her and do not loose faith. Since the first appointment her level of confident, knowledge, advices, gave me a piece of mind. I thank God everyday for putting Ms. Casa in my path. Today I am in my house with my children, she was able to saved my house, guided me and continue doing so. I don't do a step without consulting her. My case started on 3/1/2016. Her staff is super, Carmen her assistant is always there to support. They answered emails, questions, requests. Unlike many others after they done in court, you don't hear from them. I strongly recommend her if you really want to have your case done properly, on time, someone that cares.

Diligent and honest
Clare was responsive, polite, respectable, patient and diligent. She also had the honesty to tell refer us to someone else when my case was in her line of business, but out of her scope- I think it takes a caring and professional person to not act like a jack of all trades. Thank you Clare for your help. God Bless

Worry Free Bankruptcy
If you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy, Clare is your answer. I lost my job due to my disabilities and have a family to care for including two kids. From day one, Clare and her team made me feel comfortable and she explained every step in the greatest of detail. I suffer from PTSD and have a hard time getting along with others, but Clare was able to make me feel like family. When something came up Clare or Carmen would call me informing me of what had changed or any documents needed while still making me feel comfortable about the process. Clare was very upfront with what was expected of me. It was a lot of work but it is well worth it. I remember sitting in the court room listening to other cases being presented and the Trustee tearing their cases apart. While all this is going on the client’s bankruptcy lawyers has no answers to help save the case. Clare will prepare you for everything possible making your awful situation go as smooth as possible. If you are considering bankruptcy, Clare is the only solution to a brighter future.
