- Battery - punishable as a misdemeanor; up to 1 year in jail
- Aggravated battery - punishable as a felony; up to 15 years in a state penitentiary

He was able to get my father out of a pickle with out even loosing his license- Jennifer
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

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
I have had extensive experience with criminal defense attorneys (from $1,000 attorneys all the way up to the $100,000 attorneys) and can attest that Mr. Casanova is the best in town. He and his staff are top-notch. Mr. Casanova will hold your hand when you need it, but "tell you how it is!" It's rare to find such an honest attorney, especially one who is so talented. He is not a "bottom dollar" attorney, but his pricing is more fair than anyone in town, and he will not take advantage of you in your time of need like most attorneys in Brevard. He is highly respected by the state attorney's office, and is able to negotiate favorable resolutions, but this guy is darn-sure ready to go the distance when you have a strong case. I have sought his expert guidance numerous times, referred him to friends and acquaintances, and even my own family members. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Casanova for any and all criminal (and traffic) matters. I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.- 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
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!- Matt
