    “Mr. Casanova was very kind and explained all the options available to me & specific to my case.”
    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!!

    “5 stars would definitely recommend !”
    I hired Steve not once but twice. One of my favorite things about him is his energy in the court room and the rooms energy when he is in it, he has been working in Brevard for many years and has built a great relationship with “the other side”; the judges, state attorneys, so on and so forth.My other favorite thing was his ability to get me and my loved one out of a lot of trouble. Steve not only handled my fathers’ case perfectly, but my case as well. He was attentive, personable yet professional , truly a pleasure to work with and If I ever need assistance again , I’m going to Casanova!

    “Best Possible Outcome!”
    I recently referred a client to attorney Steven Casanova and I could not be happier with the result he obtained. Mr. Casanova's knowledge of criminal law and procedure, his years of experience in the courtroom, his great communication skills, the respect he has among his peers, his quick and timely responses to questions and concerns, and his true compassion for his clients makes him an extremely effective lawyer. Using these traits and his ability to strategize and negotiate, he recently and quickly achieved the best possible result for my client who I referred to him for criminal defense in a felony case. Way to go Steve! We all are extremely grateful.
