Honest, caring, hard working.
I ran into trouble when people that I barely knew jumped me and then filed a false police report. There was eight of them at the scene and me. I had no proof besides my word. I was charged with criminal tresspassing and assault on a minor. Mr. Cassese met with me for a consultation. He listened to me, and made notes. We appeared in court and all charges were dismissed. I highly recommend this man to represent the accused.

Exceptional attorney
It’s never pleasant dealing with a legal matter. That being said, Frank Cassese is hands down the best attorney in the area. He came highly recommended to me and he lived up to expectations. Attorney Cassese is a dedicated, aggressive and exceptionally competent lawyer. More impressively, he is a good man who fights for his clients and is always honest and accessible. I would recommend attorney Cassese to anyone looking for the absolute best in legal representation.

Excellent lawyer!
I contacted Frank Cassese as soon my incident happened, he asked for all the details and started to work on it right away, he immediately set up a consulting appointment with me and he clearly explained the procedures of the case to me. On the court date he was punctual and thanks to his knowledge we had a great outcome in the case. I will highly recommend him for his professional services.

Ambitious and actually cares!
Frank has represented me through very tough times in my life. He’s made things diasapear which I thought was impossible. He actually cares about clients outcome not just about his paycheck. He is the best lawyer in the area in my opinion. People that I suggested to hire him have had the same results. Frank is super professional and caring at the same time. Outside the courtroom and his office he is an outstanding human being. I recommend him for any type of defense. He has saved me in so many different ways. He i well connected in the community, and everyone knows what a good guy he is. That is why all the prosecutors and judges respect him so much. He has established himself as a powerhouse lawyer after only a few years out of law school. He is not like most lawyers who are about self gain, he puts his everything into every case in his case load. Highly recommend him! Highly recommend to him to be recommended for any type of legal problems!

Great Lawyer
Frank was referred to me by a family member and met with a free consultation. He could not take the case because it took place out of state but he gave excellent advice and referred me to a lawyer that ended up getting all of my charges withdrawn. Frank is very professional, personable, and dresses impressively.

I thought he was very personable and made me feel comfortable. I trusted him and knew he would do everything he could. I didn't like how everything was so fast. I didn't know exactly what was going on until it was over with and after I saw the judge.

Amazing!
Frank represented me when I was going through a tough time and was charged with two OVI's over 3 days. He did an excellent job and both OVI's were dismissed. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for an aggressive and bright lawyer. He was professionally dressed and was very personable. Hiring Frank was one of the best investments I have made.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Frank Cassese is a young, bright, hard working lawyer who I met while working with co-defendants on a seriously complicated aggravated murder case. I quickly learned he was very capable, but more important, he was always looking to learn from every lawyer in and around the courts. I know him much better now, honest, intelligent and the best work ethic around. I endorse his work."
