How Cassie Can Help You
Cassie is proud to help individuals and families protect their assets while providing debt relief. Cassie enjoys the opportunity to meet with potential clients during the consultation to educate them on the bankruptcy process and explore whether bankruptcy is the best solution to their particular circumstances. She understands everyone is facing a different situation and talking through how bankruptcy can help or not is essential for people to make an educated decision regarding their finances. Cassie realizes many people coming into her office are not familiar with bankruptcy so she always walks people through the basics and then gets into the specifics relevant to each consultation.

When a consultation transitions to a case, Cassie ensures her clients are kept well informed and comfortable as the process progresses. She always welcomes direct contact with clients through calls or emails. She understands filing bankruptcy is a difficult decision and treats her clients with respect throughout the entire process.

Why Cassie Practices Bankruptcy Law
Cassie’s favorite aspect of practicing bankruptcy law is the connection to people. She knows everyone has a story to tell and she appreciates people placing their trust in her as they convey that story. She is always struck by how brave and strong people are in the face of difficult and stressful circumstances. She understands life happens to good people and is grateful she is able to help individuals and families look to brighter futures.

She also appreciates the practice of law for its intricacies and changing nature. She likes working the puzzles of cases to ensure her clients are receiving the greatest benefits allowed under the law while maintaining integrity throughout the process. The local Kansas City bankruptcy community is also a positive aspect to practicing in this area of law.

Cassie is licensed to file bankruptcy cases in the Kansas City metro area federal courts of Kansas and the Western District of Missouri.

Away from the Desk
Cassie enjoys spending time with her handsome husband and fun loving daughters. She is and always has been an animal lover. Their family home is lucky to have three wonderful, but not always so well behaved dogs. Cassie and her family enjoy exploring the Kansas City area on the weekends from Union Station to festivals in smaller communities. She is also known to unwind watching any show on Masterpiece Theatre and is anxiously awaiting season four of Stranger Things.

Cassie grew up in Hays, Kansas and graduated from Fort Hays State University. She entered law school right after college and graduated from the University of Kansas, School of Law.

Cassie is a supporter of the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, especially their Ray of Hope partnership with Kansas City, KS animal control. Two of Cassie’s dogs are Ray of Hope alumni.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Cassie Pfannenstiel Rodriguez clearly believes in providing practical advice that real people can use. Some people believe that you aren't a good lawyer unless you quote provisions of the law, but that isn't the case. Real people want & need answers to help solve their problems and not meaningless but impressive legal citations. I am happy to endorse Ms Rodriguez to the followers of AVVO."
