Before this incident, I was not very familiar with the legal system or processes. I met with and consulted with multiple attorneys, but I knew from the moment I sat down with Ray that he was the guy for me. Immediately, he made me feel like he was on my team which, in turn, made me feel safe. He and his phenomenal staff (particularly Jenna) explained things and coached me along every step of the way, even when I was simply feeling overwhelmed and just needed a supportive ear. Whenever I had to appear in court, I felt a sense of calm when I saw Ray walk through the doors of the courthouse. I knew he'd take care of things and he did. He never led me in the wrong direction and all suggestions he made to me about how to proceed were the right ones. I feel like we emerged from this process as friends and I would highly recommend him to anybody, with zero reservations.

As a first-term law student in 2012, I made the a bad decision to drink and drive. Mr. Cassar was referred to me by a fellow student. Throughout our initial meeting Mr. Cassar was honest, upfront, and truly counseled regarding the options and immediate course of action. Mr. Cassar was not focused on whether I could afford his retainer agreement, but rather on my health, well being, and course of action which would place me back on the track for success. Even after our legal representation ended, Mr. Cassar still continued to reach out and provide support towards the long-term rehabilitation plan we had set in motion. I have since graduated and as a bar applicant, prepared for an impending character and fitness investigation. While there is no doubt that Mr. Cassar is a quality attorney, he has proven to go over and beyond normal expectations of a criminal defense attorney. To the friends, family, and fellow counsel who find themselves in hot water I say call Raymond Cassar, a criminal defense attorney who genuinely cares about his clients.

If something ever happens to me my family knows to hire Ray Cassar. He always takes the time to assist but, most importantly he helps. Most lawyers just tell you what to do and what not to do, Ray tells you what he thinks and explains it. He is very friendly, knows the law and wants to help.

Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for Ray Cassar. Not only did he defend my son on his initial charges, he came back to our defense for serious probation violation charges that could have landed my son in prison for years and years. Mr. Cassar staked his substantial professional reputation to convince the prosecutor and the judge to give my son another chance to turn his life around. Just as importantly, Mr. Cassar helped to show my son that he was worth saving; not only did he represent him in the courtroom, but he counselled him in ways that have helped him to direct his life in positive, life changing directions. Ray Cassar is the real deal and I genuinely believe that criminal defense is not just his line of work, it is his mission in life.

After working with another attorney I contacted Ray for a second opinion. Ray is extremely knowledgeable about the law and provided me invaluable insight into my case. As importantly as his legal advice is how he treated me and took the time to understand the impacts of my case not only legally but on my family and personal life. I would highly recommend Ray to anyone needing legal help. You will find his office to be kind, compassionate and ready to help with the experience to protect you and your family.

Although I was not able to procure Mr. Cassars' services, I did receive some great advice at the free consultation. I recommend his firm to anyone looking for a great lawyer with years of knowledge and "strait to the point" answers. Thank you

Let me give it to you straight: If you're in need of help, contact the Law Offices of Raymond A. Cassar. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found the firm.
Without divulging any specific information, believe it when I say I was in a bit of a rough spot last year. The proverbial rug was pulled out from under me, and the odds weren't looking too favorable -- right place, wrong time, and the possibility of a punishable crime.
Am I the type of person who'd expect this kind of thing happening in their life? Far from it. I'm pretty straight-laced.
Having never even jaywalked before, I was utterly panicked with what was being brought against me.
Based on the reviews here at AVVO, and a bit of internet research, I dialed the Law Offices of Raymond A. Cassar and Ray himself answered the phone. He told me that everything was going to be alright and that I should come in for a one-on-one meeting.
Before I even set foot in the offices, I felt at ease. Ray and his team were accommodating, understanding, and were more than willing to help me -- swooping right into action to best prepare a defense against a possible charge.
The price for services rendered made a bit of a dent in my wallet, but it was a price worth paying. All measures were considered, and many of them were strategically taken.
Ray was amicable, collected, knowledgeable and, above all, made me feel secure. Last year would've been 365 days of crippling paranoia and self-loathing without him.
Never having had a lawyer until Ray, and having had an innate distrust of lawyers from what I've seen on television and read in books, all my doubts were erased when it came to the subject of "legal defense." Ray isn't someone who just wants to pull a fast one on his client. Ray truly cares about the well-being of his clients, and wants what's best for them. He understands them as people, and doesn't look at them as simply names on a case docket.
Bottom line: The best decision you can make is to go with Ray. I didn't just hire a lawyer, but I made a friend who is willing to go to bat for me.
And so far...so good. The Law Offices of Raymond A. Cassar is your best line of defense.

My experience with Mr. Cassar has been nothing short of extraordinary. After getting pulled over after I had been drinking and driving, I didn't know where to turn. I had just spent two nights in jail and was scheduled to have my pre-trial hearing on Monday morning, leaving me little to no time to find an attorney to handle my case. I was able to contact Mr. Cassar early Saturday morning when most people were still asleep. His demeanor was very professional, and it was evident to me that he was a seasoned veteran of the business. He was very straightforward with me regarding my prognosis and the overall outlook of my legal situation. He didn't promise me anything he didn't feel he would be able to achieve, and I greatly appreciated his honesty and sincerity. He was constantly available to answer my questions and made me feel like my life was in good hands.
My case was slightly more complicated because I had an out-of-state license and would be leaving the state around 6-7 months after I had gotten pulled over. Nevertheless, he handled my case with finesse. I was able to obtain a plea offer which lowered the severity of the criminal portion of my case down to Driving While Impaired by Liquor. I was sentenced to complete 40 hours of community service, undergo evaluation and treatment through a program on alcohol education, and to undergo holiday-only PBT. These results are better than anything I could have possibly hoped for, and I don't believe I would have been able to achieve them with any other attorney. Mr. Cassar was able to help me prevent a dumb mistake from ruining my career and my life. I was very happy with the treatment I received and hold absolutely no reservation when recommending Mr. Cassar as a qualified attorney who genuinely cares about his clients and treats them as if he were representing his family.

Ray represented my son three different times and also for violations to probation within the last two years. He is a totally amazing lawyer who truly cares about his clients! I would recommend him to anyone. We believe he is one of the most talented lawyers in Michigan, and probably in the US.
