Grateful
I made a cold call for a divorce attorney. Mr. Casey returned my phone call the same day. He listened to my situation, was patient and compassionate. Through the process he was efficient, professional and returned my calls promptly. I'm thankful for his service.

I wish I had hired him the first time !
I had a bad custody agreement and my ex was drawing a handsome monthly check. While ignoring the court orders and tightening the noose around my time with my daughter. Sound like you? If it does, then hire Michael today. You child is growing up everyday you waste. He's is professional, he sticks to the facts, he wins, while keeping you informed. You will be glad you did.

Many thanks
Mike and his team were courteous and professional. They walked me through every step of the divorce process, and answered every question I could think of asking. I was also surprised to find out how affordable it was. Overall, I don’t have a single complaint. They made a terrible life experience much more tolerable. Thank you all!

He's in it for the long haul...
I hired Mr. Casey in 2017 for a custody case. My case has been very high conflict, very disruptive, and very intense. It has been a LONG 3 years, and we have been in and out of court A LOT. Michael's professionalism and knowledge is obvious, yet he has this remarkable ability to dissect and explain the complexities of what was happening so that I could easily understand. He puts effort in to making sure I know what to expect before and after court, as well as what to do with all the stuff in between court dates. He has been patient with me in explaining the do's and don'ts of different situations from a legal standpoint; he has answered questions that were applicable to the case, while also separating the matters that weren't. We have sat in his office and gone over strategies and scenarios, witness testimonies, motions, legal standpoints and relevance... He is truly a GREAT ATTORNEY. He cares about the well being of his clients and the kids involved. He has shown that he will fight for what is right and he is in it 'til the end. I couldn't be any more grateful for the fact that I know no matter what comes my way, if I need to ask for direction regarding matters of my case, I can count on Michael.

Child Custody
I was beyond satisfied with hiring Michael for my child custody case. He made the situation a lot less stressful with his knowledge and timely responses to the many questions I had. I would certainly recommend Michael to anyone that needed an attorney who goes above and beyond for his clients.

Grandchildren visitation.
We found Mr Casey to be very caring as well as considerate. He was very thorough and well prepared for our case. He was very knowledgeable in the field of grandparents rights.

Fantastic Attorney
When I first contemplated filing for a divorce I knew nothing about the process or where to start looking for an attorney. I researched the "best in my area" and I kept seeing Mr. Casey. Hiring Mr. Casey and his staff was the absolute best decision. The process was fairly easy as he took time to sit down with me and would personally return my phone calls to his office. His staff was also understanding and polite. Mr. Casey never got upset with me when I would call so many times in a panic regarding the case. My divorce was somewhat "unique" in circumstance and we ended up settling. Had we went to trial, I have no doubt Mr. Casey would have won. He is absolutely fantastic. A true professional. I have even hired him to handle another case for me.

Last October I asked Michael to help me file the modification of child support. He did excellent job. Finally the judge approved the modification. Thank you Michael!

Michael is top-notch!
Michael has been working on my case to get more parenting time with my four children. Unfortunately my former spouse has thrown every obstacle imaginable to keep me from my children. Michael has done a tremendous job thus far. He is absolutely professional, knows the Law, and knows how to represent his clients effectively. We have more hearings to go but I am confident in Michael and his ability.

Michael Casey
Michael was referred from a previous client that I know.. I was so unsure who to trust or who could help me at this point... I prayed about it and Michael was the one GOD put on my heart and in my mind to trust with everything...The first time I met him I knew he would be my attorney for my son and me until.... He's very caring, honest, professional, compassionate about his work and does his job 150%... I trusted Michael with my sons happiness and future and he never ceased to amaze me and NEVER let us down..Michael goes above and beyond and doesn't quit and can't isn't a option ever.. He doesn't play let's make a deal with any attorney he's all about his client and their best interests.. I would recommend Michael to anyone. I've recommended Michael to several people and he won their cases also. I will NEVER use anyone else..Michael is the best attorney around without a doubt!!!!

Excellent Service!
Mr. Casey was very professional and I have much gratitude for his representation. My case was dismissed after Mr. Casey found the state did not have evidence to charge me with a DUI. I would highly recommend anyone who needs representation, to hire Mr. Casey! Thank you again for your help!

Knowledge and a value compared to most.
Michael handled may case as quickly and enxpensively as anyone could expect. Most of my friends spent two to three time the amount of money for the same serve. I would not hesitate to call him for any legal advice or consult of any sort.

Calm in the storm
Michael Casey was my calm in the storm during my divorce. He listened to my needs and understood my position. He provided very sound advice and legal counsel. Michael helped steer me in the direction I needed to go and always had my best interests in mind. He and his staff were very accessible and responsive. There is nothing worse than not being able to communicate with your lawyer during this process. That was never an issue with me. I would highly recommend Michael's legal services.

Highly Recommended
I was referred to Mr. Casey by a friend after having an unsatisfactory experience with a local lawyer in my rural community. Mr Casey and his team have been courteous and professional. I felt confident throughout my 12 month divorce/custody hearings with Mr Casey at my side. I also had concerns about hiring an out-of town attorney, but Mr, Casey was very flexible and available via phone, e-mail, etc.. which kept me from having to make constant trips to Jackson. I have already recommended him to others and will again. This guy knows what he's doing.
