    "Couldn't ask for a more kind, understanding, and caring individual, and all this while still being very knowledgeable and effective and his job."
    I've been using Steve for nearly 15 years. At this stage in the game I would consider him more of a friend. Couldn't ask for a more kind, understanding, and caring individual, and all this while still being very knowledgeable and effective and his job. While specializing in criminal defense (ranging from misdemeanors and low level felonies, all the way up to major felony federal cases), Steve has throughout the years assisted me with other legal realms, such as civil and family law. Very fair pricing for the level of service. Would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer!

    "He is the consummate professional and does everything first class."
    Steve Casanova is an exceptional trial lawyer. He is smart, talented, quick on his feet and knows how to talk to a jury. He is the consummate professional and does everything first class. He knows the law, is innovative in his approach and his legal research is second to none. He is worth every penny. The way I look at it is you can either have a cheap lawyer or a great lawyer--after all if you needed brain surgery would you hire the cheapest brain surgeon you can find or would you hire the best. Hire Steve--hire the best!
