Precise and professional
I interviewed a few highly recommended lawyers in town before I talked to Casey Sanders. I chose Casey because I felt respected and knew that he was not going to treat me as another divorce case but as a mother who was desperately trying to keep my child safe. I was very concerned about how this would affect my child. In what could have escalated into a volatile situation, Casey stayed professional and compassionate. He advocated for my child's emotional and physical stability and safety. As a working professional, I am very detail oriented myself and was concerned about being able to parent, stay focused at my job and handle my divorce. I was able to accomplish all that because Casey is a good communicator, had very good resources and kept me in the loop. He is not impulsive but is decisive and confident about the choices that we had to make. My child’s father hired the most expensive and experienced attorneys in town but Casey was able to present my truth and my concerns very precisely. I am very grateful for Casey’s involvement in my case and I recommend him without any reservation.

Competent, timely and knowledgeable
I live in the Tricities area, about four hours drive from the Vancouver area and I had to pick Mr. Casey Sanders blind. Since our first telephone meeting Sanders has impressed me with his courtesy, honesty and most of all knowledge. He saw the false domestic violence get dropped and made sure that the judge knew that they were falsified. Before I hired Casey Sanders I had not seen or talked to my kids in almost two months. Now, with his expertise, I get my youngest for a full week every other week.

Highly Competent Legal Team
I found Casey in a moment where I had to scramble to find representation to prepare for what I knew might be a difficult journey. While things were more difficult attributed to a pandemic and extremely high conflict dissolution with children, I could always count on Casey (and Karrey) to be dependable, knowledgeable, and realistic. I value Casey’s straightforward and levelheaded approach to such complex situations and could not have asked for better representation. Karrey’s attention to detail, professionalism, and empathetic character was so appreciated and needed during many difficult moments in our journey. I could not have asked for a better team and truly believe my legal matters might have turned out differently had it not been for having both Casey and Karrey.

Best attorney and team ever!!!
I hired Casey to help with my divorce, parenting plan/ custody and obtaining the stimulus checks that my ex-husband took from the children. I am so glad that I had Casey and his team by my side, representing me. They worked diligently this past year to close my case and through the entire process they listened to what I had to say, understood what I wanted and gave me honest feedback. I can honestly say that Casey and his team cared about me and about my children. Through the whole process Casey thought about my children and what was best for them. We won my case and my ex-husband walked away happy too. It was a win win for everyone! Best attorney and team ever!!!

Casey Sanders Stands Head and Shoulders Above the Rest
My divorce case was complicated, it lasted three years, and required the work of three different family law attorneys. My last attorney, Casey Sanders, stood head and shoulders above the rest. In addition to being intelligent, professional, and a great communicator, Casey was strategic—giving me the costs and benefits of all of the actions we were considering; he was willing to roll up his sleeves and look at the nuances of my situation—which was something I had wanted from the other attorneys who represented me; and he was adaptable—meaning, if I asked him to take a hard line, he did. I also felt that he truly cared about the outcomes of my case. Every minute that I worked with Casey, I wished he had represented me all along. His paralegal, Karrey L. Komp, was also professional, capable, and personable. I felt that I had a great team with Casey and Karrey. I give them my unqualified and highest recommendation.

Referring to a divorce as a "good experience" would not be accurate. However, I came to this firm in a desperate situation that involved abuse, control and many other issues. My husband being highly respected in county government and me being a stay at home mom left me feeling trapped and hopeless. I did my research and found McKinley and Irving to be a highly respected and successful family law firm. My attorney Casey Sanders and his paralegal Karrey Komp took my case and helped and provided more than I imagined. From day one to day 500 my counsel was life saving. I was well cared for, well represented and came out on the other side able to provide for myself and my kids. I trusted the counsel I received with my future and it served me well. I would highly recommend Attorney Casey Sanders and his paralegal Karrey Komp.

Makes a difficult process easier to deal with
Casey Sanders and his paralegal Karrey were a dream to work with. Recently went through a divorce and I don’t think the process could have been easier than these two made it for me. Questions were always answered quickly and I feel I was given real, reasonable advice and realistic expectations.

Casey and Karrey worked very hard on helping me change my custody order. Casey listened to me and what we wanted. Without him and Karrey I would of been lost in all the court paperwork and would have missed work to be in court.

Professional and thorough
It was a pleasure working with Casey and his paralegal, Karrey. Casey is very thorough and responsive. He keeps you informed of progress and what to expect next. I hope I won’t need his services again, but I would definitely hire him again and would recommend to others.

I felt comfortable working with Casey. My situation was rapidly dealt with, and everything was done correctly. I was never pressured for additional services, but knew my time and energy wouldn't have been wasted. Overall Casey provides knowledge, transparency, and professionalism. Would highly recommend.

Best Divorce Lawyer in town
I picked Mr. Sanders based on the reviews I read online, and they were spot on. Casey got me everything I have asked for, responded to all questions same day and in general made me feel very comfortable with the entire process. When my wife attempted to get a restraining order against me, Casey dropped everything and ran to court to ensure the order did not go through. Amazing dedication and compassion for his clients!

Professional and efficient!
Casey Sanders and Karry Komp worked fast and efficient on my case batteling a restraining order and thrid party custody. He was straight forward, to the point and very professional. They worked hard and in the end my daughter was returned home 2 days after the restraining order was dropped and the case was dismissed. I speak very highly of Casey and his team. If you have a difficult case, don't waste time and hire him! Thank you so much for making my family complete again! I can't thank you enough!

An awesome family law!
I have nothing but high praise for Casey Sanders and McKinley Irvin. He is very professional and very experienced in his work, not to mention quickly addressing issues and answering all of my questions throughout the process. Working with Casey as my attorney was a easy and pleasant process; the whole firm seems to be pretty good at what they do! From the initial time I spoke with Casey Sanders to the time that papers were served to protect myself and my child from a dangerous situation was completed in less than 48 hours. That is INCREDIBLY fast, especially since it had to go through court and sign & review multiple revisions of paperwork, due to the awesome efforts of Casey Sanders, Wendy Murray, and his team. Casey is an excellent attorney to have on your side. I would hate to be opposing council fighting against him. My experience has been hands down more than I could have asked for. I felt like he was truly understanding of the issues going on and the urgency of the situation. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Pleased!
I am very pleased with how Casey has handled my case thus far! Since our first meeting Casey has expressed understanding, knowledge, offered information I would have missed on my own, and is down to earth. Throughout my time working with Casey he has communicated well with me about everything going on in my case as well as offering great advice! I highly recommend Casey. I will update more as case comes to a settle but thankful to have Casey as my lawyer!

Underskilled, Unprofessional, Unprepared
Casey is not skilled enough to handle complicated cases. And I was overcharged excessively because he was not skilled enough. At one point he needed to consult an additional attorney because he didn’t’ understand what to do. I found myself, many times, repeating to Casey the details of my evidence presented. Casey still could not understand, or would not properly research, which allowed the opposing party to be dishonest. Even after I would send detailed information, multiple times, having to pay each time I did so, Casey still lacked knowledge that was pertinent to this case. Because Casey was unprepared, and not skilled enough, the opposing counsel was able to get an unjust financial judgment against me. The judgment was because of Casey's underperformance in properly researching what was sent to him as evidence, and being prepared to counter the false attacks by opposing counsel. Casey would not provide paperwork, that needed to be reviewed by me, and submitted, until the last possible date, and usually only two hours until the courts would close. This was not enough time for me to review and correct all the mistakes and missing information. This left me stuck. When I informed Casey of all the information missed, Casey would just remind me that he sent over the documents for me to review and I should have brought up the concern at that time. Casey said he was not concerned for court though and believed he knew the information he needed to know. Opposing counsel saw these weaknesses and was able to exploit them, though I can’t blame them for doing so. Please do not use Casey Sanders if you are needing an attorney that will pay very close attention to details, or if you have a complicated case, or if the opposing counsel is highly skilled in deceit tactics, because Casey Sanders will leave you frustrated, and broke. Casey simply is not skilled enough to handle these types of cases. I will not use Casey Sanders, nor will I use McKinley Irvin firm in the future. I do believe that Casey is skilled enough to handle very simple, cookie cutter, situations.
