Outstanding personal injury lawyer with integrity, perseverance, and insight
Nick Casper took my case after a bad fall, where both shoulders got severely injured, one beyond repair and the other fixed with surgery. Nick's knowledge of injury law is extensive. He navigated through the settlement process with the utmost professionalism, showing great judgment and care for his clients' emotional and physical wellbeing. He sent me to an expert orthopedic doctor who properly accessed my injury, a critical step. He communicated with me effectively at every stage of the process. Most importantly, he understood me and my injuries and truly care and worked judiciously to get me the best settlement award. I can't think of anyone more respected and qualified than Nick Casper to handle any personal case injury.
