Excellent Attorney
I just had one of the best days of my life. Mr. Cassell was appointed to represent me in a matter and I knew my expectations were almost impossible to accomplish. However, Mr. Cassell went above and beyond what is normally expected of an attorney and he DID EXCEED my expectations. He got me a better deal that I had thought was even possible. I know that this had nothing to do with being paid a substantial fee because Mr. Cassell probably made less for my case than he was being paid on any other case since he was appointed to represent me. This told me a lot about this attorney. He genuinely cared about the outcome of my case and me as a client. As many clients know, this is not the idea we have of attorneys. Mr. Cassell showed that the money he was being paid was not a reflection of his advocacy. He did what we could to get a desirable outcome and I would recommend this attorney for any of your legal needs.
