A proud Wisconsinite, Attorney John P. Casey has deep roots in Southeastern Wisconsin, having grown up in New Berlin and now raising his children in Lake Country while growing his personal injury practice in Milwaukee.
Attorney Casey left Wisconsin to attend the University of Dayton School of Law where he excelled in tort and business law. He received his law degree in 1991 from the University of Dayton, then returned to Wisconsin where he was admitted to:
“John is direct, smart and compassionate. He sees 10 steps ahead
on any issue, so is always on top of the likely outcome and will strategize
accordingly. I have referred several friends and close family members
to him because I trust his knowledge, skills and care.”
- Attorney Monica Hartl, a prominent worker’s compensation lawyer in Milwaukee
Attorney Casey’s legal expertise has been valued by his colleagues and clients alike. His associations include:
His clients have benefited from his deep understanding of the nuances of the law and his tenacity in the courtroom. His reputation among his peers has helped him achieve large and fair settlements without the need to try cases within the courtroom. When litigation is necessary, Attorney Casey’s extensive knowledge of courtroom procedure, rules of evidence and courtroom presence have helped him routinely secure the maximum amount in damages for clients.
In one case, a pedestrian was hit by a reckless drunk driver in Milwaukee. He fled the scene, leaving the victim for dead. After several attempts to negotiate a fair settlement with the hit-and-run driver’s insurance company, Attorney Casey’s final offer was rejected by the insurer, forcing a trial. Attorney Casey’s argument that the plaintiff deserved the maximum policy settlement due to the negligent behavior of the driver swayed the jurors to agree, resulting in not only the policy limits for his client, but interest on the judgment for the insurance company’s failure to settle prior to trial.
Such examples are not limited to hit-and-run accidents, but include:
