If you are ever unfortunate enough to get a DUI, I hope you are fortunate enough to get Mr. Casanova to represent you. Steve has a wealth of experience with DUI cases and was able to get a last minute agreement to eliminate one of the penalties in exchange for a charitable donation. He is also very personable and makes himself available whenever you want information or advice.- Former Client

I would highly recommend Mr. Casanova to anyone seeking legal counsel. Mr. Casanova was very kind and explained all the options available to me & specific to my case. Not only is he (in my opinion) the best criminal lawyer in all of Brevard county...he is also the most fairly priced. I am thankful for his help & the time he spent with me free of charge. Unfortunately I could not hire him due to conflict of interest...however he was very helpful in recommending the lawyer I did hire. I can't speak highly enough of Mr. Casanova!!- Evelyn

Mr. Casanova was very helpful. I could tell he wasn't money hungry. Most common folks are not fortunate to have a huge savings. The information he gave me was very accurate after researching. He easily could have taken advantage of a mother who has never experienced anything with the law if wanted to. When I asked about cost he simply said if your not satisfied with a public defender call me back. I felt he was sincere and honest in his answers. I think my gut is on point and will contact his office if I'm in need.- Sophia
