Mr. Cassanova took my call immediately and spoke to me about my legal situation. He was extremely helpful and even provided advice to me that possibly I may qualify for a public defender. Out of the three criminal attorneys I spoke to in my town, I know that Mr. Cassanova is genuine, emphathetic and truly cares about the people he's serving. Thank you for your time today - I appreciate you. I will be in touch.- Sylvia

Excellent lawyer. Excellent results!- Former Client
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 am a native Central Floridian and I value the laws of our state. I found myself in a jam at the beach and I needed the best. I read the reviews and I made a choice to hire the best local attorney with the right knowledge and associations. I knew I had made the right choice when I saw Mr. Casanova’s curriculum vitae. During the entire process I felt blessed to have his representation and all contact was to-the-point and professional. Steve and his girls Karen and Katie resolved my case with ease. Now my freedom is in sight. Good job to the entire team their for top notch defense!- Katherine

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.- Pamela
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!- J Scott
