About Casey

Learn Casey’s areas of practice.

Casey D. Martin earned her law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law in 2003. She completed her undergraduate work at Occidental College in Los Angeles, where she majored in Public Policy and minored in Spanish Cultural Studies.

Martin spent a semester of college in Washington, D.C., where she interned at the White House. She also studied in Madrid, Spain. Her time in Spain helped develop her Spanish comprehension and has allowed her to offer legal services to Spanish-speaking clients.

After college, Martin’s career in law started in 2003 at Burton, Volkmann, & Schmal in Santa Cruz, where she worked as an Associate in civil litigation and government tort liability. Her next position was with McCormick Barstow in Fresno as an associate specializing in commercial litigation and insurance coverage. In June 2006, she moved to the Fresno County District Attorney’s Office and worked as a deputy district attorney. While there, she prosecuted a number of felony matters through trial, headed the Truancy Intervention Grant and gave lectures on truancy prevention to law enforcers, school districts, and the public.

Martin belongs to many organizations. Among them are the California DUI Lawyers Association, California Women Lawyers Association, Fresno County Women Lawyer’s Association, Kings County Bar Association and the National Association of Defense Attorneys.

She has been practicing law for a decade plus and has a myriad of different experience that uniquely serves her clients. She practices Criminal Defense, Civil Law, and Family Law, and is one of the few attorneys in the Valley intimately familiar with the Indian Child Welfare Act. Martin also understands what it takes to defend military service members. “As the wife of a Navy Fighter Pilot and the mother of three children, I have a unique perspective on how cases can affect clients lives. I am different than other lawyers because I work hard, get results, and do everything within my power to get you the results that you need.”

Child Custody Case
Casey has been amazing, through a not so easy divorce and child custody case. She is always attentive to my needs and I always feel confident when we have a hearing. I know she is doing her best to make sure I achieve the outcome that is best for my family. Whatever Casey is working on I know she will give it her best. If you need a lawyer Casey is hands down exactly who you need.

EXTEMELY PLEASED
I AM WRITING THIS REVIEW FOR A GREAT ATTY. MS. CASEY MARTIN. A HUGE RATING OF 5... SHE IS NOT ONLY PROFESSIONALLY GEARED BUT HAS A GREAT HEART AND PASSION FOR HER CLIENTS. CASEY WAS SO PREPARED AND HELPED MY FIANCE TO VICTORY AND JUSTICE. IF YOU NEED A REAL ATTY WHO PUTS 100% INTO HER CASES. SHE IS THE "ONE" I REALIZE THAT THERE IS A 5 STAR RATING... HOWEVER, THERE SHOULD BE A 100 BECAUSE SHE PUT 100% AND MORE TO OUR NEEDS. AND SHE MADE US COMPLETE. "THANK YOU CASEY MARTIN". OUR FOREVER ANGEL MS. MELODY

Divorce
I just want to start off by saying Casey is by far the best lawyer I could ever ask for. Not only outstanding at what she does, Casey is a phenomenal human being. I feel like part of family when I enter her office. She is quick to return emails and calls and is efficient. If you are looking for a great divorce lawyer Casey is the one to call.

My Attorney:

Very Kind and Compassionate
Casey was wonderful in a very complex matter that was causing me a boatload of emotional distress. She knows the law and has old fashioned values that set her apart from the crowd. When you have to call a lawyer, you worry, sometimes a lot. Casey will set your mind at ease. This lawyer is not motivated by money but is motivated by truth and justice and she is not a clock-watcher! If she is on your side, you have solid, aggressive representation that you can count on. Casey is an outstanding lawyer and thoroughly decent individual! Thank you Counselor

Unprofessional
Was not pleased with fair and accurate representation. She came to court unprepared and used Facebook during others hearings. Seemed much to preoccupied with others to our much time into my case. Would not reccomend whatsoever.
