Cut AND Dry
Casey Gartland, an attorney that makes something out of nothing. Works fast, Has the experience, and Stays in communication when necessary. You simply cannot go wrong. Our case was resolved within the week the had our consultation. We lost hope in finding in an attorney that would be able to help us as we waited too long after the accident to reach out. However, to a man on a mission, Casey took our situation and ran with it. The bar here is on the moon... Again, you cannot go wrong.

No job too small
Casey agreed to help us with confidence when other lawyers felt our case was a lost cause. What was supposed to be one of the happiest moments in our lives was interrupted by the pandemic and made worse by a business refusing to refund our monies for no service rendered. Lucky for us Casey and his firm took our case and with compassion for our circumstance negotiated for a full refund.

Thank you!!
Hello Casey We really want to thank you so much for all your hard work and support, we could not have done this without you. After talking to many other lawyers and nobody was really able to help us, we are so thankful you took the time to help us get all of our money back from our wedding. We can finally relax now knowing we can afford and do the right thing this time. I know you went out of your way to do a lot more and we thank you so much for not giving up. I have never met a lawyer so caring and taking the time to help me stay calm through all of this. Now we can have our special day back all because of you. We are so happy to have found you and hope to work with you in the future if ever needed. You are the best... Thank you JODY & ROBERT

Amazing Lawyer
One night I was struck on my motorcycle by a car making a blind left-hand turn. It left me hospitalized and unable to walk for about half a year. I was at rock bottom and I had no idea what to do. Mr Gartland and Swope, Rodante P.A helped me through this tough time. They went above and beyond in making sure I knew what was going on and to answer my concerns and questions. Mr. Gartland is very professional and actually cares about the clients who hire him. He worked tirelessly on my case and prepping for trial. I'm very grateful to have had him and others from Swope, Rodante P.A on my case. They were magnificent at their craft. I would definitely recommend Mr. Gartland and everyone at Swope, Rodante P.A to someone going through something similar as I have.

Felony & Misdemeanor VOP's (Pro-Bono)
I was arrested for violating both county and state probation and went to John Robson of Bogle Law P.A. There I learned about the VOP process, the difficulty of defending a VOP case, and that we were likely in for a hard uphill battle. Even though we had an uphill battle Mr. Robson worked diligently on my cases and even brought in another attorney, Casey Gartland, as co-counsel to help with both VOP's. Mr. Gartland took my cases pro-bono and didn't charge me a penny. I had a whole team of top-notch attorneys helping and fighting for me, and when all was said and done I was able to get off probation and get my life back on track. I couldn't have asked for a better result or better lawyers. If it weren't for John and Casey I don't know what would have happened. If you need lawyers who will fight for you, go above and beyond for you, and one's that you can trust Mr. Robson and Mr. Gartland are both excellent. Highly recommend them both!

Casey Gartland. Lawyer, warrior, friend.
Casey has been beyond instrumental in helping my small business navigate to tumultuous waters of potential fraud, assisting in organization and growth, and providing sound advice with anything I might ask. He is an expert in resourcefulness and networking. No surprise he has joined such a great practice. Casey is truly a becoming a force to be reckoned with. If you need a lawyer who cares, look no further. Casey is your man.

Highly recommended
“I was represented with consult from Mr Gartland. My needs were put first and I was treated like family rather than another number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured with his attention to details, confidence and insight. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Mr Gartland went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure my understanding of the legal verbiage, situation and potential outcomes. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thanks guys!!!”

Casey found me an attorney for a very difficult divorce and if it wasn’t for Casey getting me the right attorney for my case, I wouldn’t have ended up in as good a situation. The attorney he got me was great. I would very highly recommend Casey for any legal matters!

5 star attorney
Mr. Gartland is an extremely professional but still caring attorney. When he says he won’t stop until justice is done he really does mean it. He is very thorough in making sure he has all information to help your case and get you the best possible outcome that he can. Mr. Gartland continues to keep me updated on my case with every step and never fails to answer any questions I may have. I would fully recommend Casey to anyone looking for a attorney who really has your best interest at heart.
