For the 2nd time in 3 years, Casanova Law was able to get a speeding ticket thrown out, saving me the obvious thousands in fines and premium hikes. I also want point out how affordable the representation was and the fact that it had Not gone up in 3 yrs! This law firm is also extremely responsive, emails are answered extremely promptly and informatively. They are the best i have encountered in my life.

Best of the best!
After years of not so great experiences with other attorneys and so-called ticket clinics, I was lucky to have legal representation by Casanova law PA. let me just save you a lot of time, aggravation, hard-earned money, and not so great outcomes: choose Casanova Law and you will not be disappointed. Not only did they get my case dismissed, they communicated superbly and efficiently for the duration of the case, the attorney personally answered my calls, the legal assistant replied to all my emails, and the legal representation was above and beyond. I didn't think professionals like Attorney Casanova still existed; she is probably one-of-a-kind!

Knowledgeable & reliable
We hired attorney Lourdes Casanova from out of state. I live in California and was assisting a family member who now resides in Mexico resolve a traffic ticket (driving without license and driving too closely behind another vehicle). I practice law in California and was not knowledgeable about criminal law in Florida. Ms. Casanova explained the entire process, gave us realistic expectations and resolved the case better than we anticipated. We anticipated to enter a plea in absentia and pay court costs. Instead, Ms. Casanova got the case dismissed and only had to pay minimal cost for prosecution! Ms. Casanova was responsive to our questions quickly and was very accommodating considering we’ve never met in person (all our communications were via email and phone). Thanks Ms. Casanova

Great experience
My experience with Ms. Casanova was fantastic. I needed a lawyer regarding a minor vehicle registration issue that through negligence became a major and potentially very expensive problem. From the first phone call through the successful resolution, Ms. Casanova was a consummate professional and her fee was reasonable. She got on the case immediately and kept me informed of every step. Ms. Casanova managed to get all charges dropped and all fines waived in 2 days, saving me possibly 2000 dollars and a couple of plane trips. Highly recommended!

Very satisfied customers
She was actually recommend by an employee at a defensive driving course name Diego on the route I deliver mail, I was a little hesitant at first, but I must admit she did an excellent job, I was updated and fully informed the entire time. She was able to get the traffic ticket completely dismissed without any court fee's or fines. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends and family in the future.

Best Choice
I am happy to leave a review for Ms. Casanova. She is a professional attorney that goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are happy with her services. She assisted my fiancé and I with our K1 Visa application. From the moment we spoke, she made me feel as though I was her only concern and made the entire process simple and easy. She worked with me at my pace and always kept me feeling comfortable with the process. I never had any doubt that she was working for me. She did everything she could to get the Visa application completed and was thorough with her questions and paperwork needed to ensure that there would not be any errors. My Fiance was approved and it's with Ms. Casanova's dedication that made it possible. The process from start to finish was about 6 months which was FAST. Thank you very much for everything and we will certainly use your services once the marriage is complete to apply for the next step.

Ms. Casanova is fantastic! She was able to reduce the fine and eliminate the points for the citation! She was easy to talk too and always returned my calls/emails/texts promptly.

Speeding ticket
Ms. Casanova did a superb job with my ticket. Despite a less than perfect driving record she managed to remove points from my license and significantly decrease my ticket fee. She was honest from the beginning and never gave me false expectations. she is an excellent professional. I would highly recommend her and will be sure to use her for any of my legal services.

Traffic Ticket
Not only is Ms. Casanova a pleasure to work with, she’s a true professional who excels at getting the job done. Despite a less than stellar driving record, I walked away from an egregious traffic infraction with no points on my license. Her penchant for excellence ensures the best possible result, I highly recommend her!!!
