Personable, Professional & Felxible
In the past I've had a few less than perfect family law experiences. In my mind, James Casey reset those standards and set the bar high. I had called multiple lawyers initially most of which seemed annoyed of the time I was taking and the questions I was asking. James was quick, efficient and personable. He guided me through a mostly unfamiliar process with ease. Cost and payment was fair and flexible. Results of the case were exactly what we expected. I would recommend James to anyone.

Great Lawyer
I would highly recommend Mr. Casey he is a very professional and honest attorney. It really shows that he cares about the outcome of each and every persons case. Excellent communication whether it be through email or in person he takes the time to answer any and all questions and fully inform you about what options you have with your case. He was appointed my CDA for a case recently and i lucked out because i couldn't be happier with the results and he was able to get my criminal case dismissed.

Public defender/ client
James was my attorney in a case where I was being prosecuted for what I thought was illegal search. he was very knowledgeable in these matters and guided me properly through the matters pertaining to to my case. I felt like he cared and treated me as such . he was very professional and I would recommend him highly

Awesome lawyer!
James is THE MAN!! Couldn't have been happier to have him representing me. I lucked into getting him assigned to my case. There was a "conflict" with the public defender, and he was assigned to my case as a "Conflict Attorney." From the get go, he was excellent at communication. He listens, gives his honest opinion, adds value and is 100% intent on getting you the best possible resolution for your case. Coming off a horrible experience with my last case/trial, this was quite a refreshing change and, I believe, how a lawyer/client relationship should work. He was attentive to my needs, receptive to my feedback and together we developed a sound approach to our plea. He was honest and direct that there was a very low likelihood of winning the case, if we went to trial. So after reviewing the discovery, and all the work I had put in on my recovery to date we went back to the judge and he gave a better offer. Then, we tried a couple new things and got an even better offer, the second time around (from a very unforgiving judge), which I was very happy with and ultimately took. Most lawyers pretend like they're actually listening to you but are distracted and aren't actually listening. But he actually listens. He's also available at all reasonable hours during the day, when you need advice or to bounce thoughts off him, and if he isn't, he'll arrange a better time to talk. He was a whiz in the Ventura County court room. He knows the people, the judge, the system and exactly which buttons to push. Above all else, he is very nice and approachable and a true advocate for you, and that makes the entire process (which is already very difficult) so much less stressful and overwhelming. I cannot recommend James and his services highly enough.

Mediation Lawyer
James Casey acted as our medator in our divorce. He was very professional and guided us though this trying time. He made everything much smoother than if we had hired an attorney to represent each side.

Outstanding Divorce/Family Attorney
I would recommend James Casey highly. He made an incredibly bitter, 2+ divorce much more tolerable. Because of work I had to stay on the east coast, so Mr. Casey basically kept things moving in California so I could continue to provide financially for my family. His attention to detail, streamlined communications, and clear directives provided everyone involved with the right facts and timely information to move forward, including a supremely arrogant opposing attorney. Mr. Casey stated facts without using bullying tactics, and I'm convinced my divorce would still not be finalized had Mr. Casey not been my attorney. Thank you again, Mr Casey!!

I would highly recommend James Casey to anyone in need of legal help. He is extremely experienced and hard working. He eased my anxiety about my case and was available to meet with me or talk on the phone whenever I felt the need. I am confident that he will get me the best possible outcome in my case. I am very grateful to have him as my lawyer.

Fair Resolution of Divorce Issues
Mr. Casey is a very professional and honest attorney. He was willing to take on my divorce case when it seemed like it was winding down. I was impressed by the way he handled the negotiations. During mediation he discussed all of the issues thoroughly with me so that I could make an informed decision about how I wanted him to advocate for me. Above all I found Mr. Casey to be ethical, dedicated to my case and always prompt communicating with me.

The BEST!
James Casey has been a big help to me since day 1. I had filed for custody and went to court multiple times for assistance but i felt it was way too much for me to do on my own. I met James and right away i knew i was in good hands. He is very professional, Honest, extremely smart, and very skilled at what he does. I will definitely refer him to all my friends and family!

Highly recommend!
James Casey came highly recommended to me, and I was not disappointed. He was professional and efficient but also warm and personable. He reviewed a legal document for me, and the entire process, from start to finish, went smoothly. I would use him again and recommend him without reservation!

Excellent lawyer.
James Casey is a excellent lawyer. I could not recommend him any higher. I have hired him on several occasions and not only had wonderful service but he treats you like family. He generally cares about him clients and not the dollar! We were always kept informed regarding our case, always there to answer questions and what I loved most is you talk to him yourself., we were never handed off to staff. Besides being a excellent layer, he is a wonderful human being. I told him once his mother raised him right!! Meant every word. Hopefully my son is passed the phase now, but Mr Casey is still there for him just to talk if he needs to. How many layers or people for that matter reaches out like that.? I would never go anywhere else but James Casey Law.

Knowledgeable, works hard, passionate about the cases he takes.
Thanks to Mr. Casey I was able to finally regain custody of my children and prevent my ex from taking them out of the state. An uphill battle quickly turned around into a winning situation. My kids are much happier now and have a better life.

Extremely skilled
I highly recommend this Criminal Defense Attorney to anyone who is looking to minimize or completely eliminate their charges (like in my case). James was consistently truthful and relatable throughout this whole process. I was most impressed with his diligence and passion for the best results possible. He was able to dismiss my criminal case entirely. As percievable, I am EXTREMELY happy with the result and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much, James!

Fantastic!
James is a great attorney a with a big heart. He has been more than fair to me and gave me an opportunity to bond with my child after 8 years. He treated me like a friend not like a customer. I cannot thank him enough for his help.
