"My wife and I have used Tim and his firm for a number of years. He has provided support in the area of elder care services for my elderly mother, our personal estate planning and real estate transactions. We have always been well served by Mr. Casserly and his staff. They are attentive to our needs, timely in their service and thorough in their efforts. We strongly recommend Tim and the firm of Burke & Casserly!" John
"Tim and his firm recently navigated our family through a difficult lawsuit during a large real estate transaction. He lead the way with conviction and tenacity. His perseverance kept us out of court leading to the eventual closing of a property that has changed the lives of many. Tim is not just a great lawyer, he is a nice guy who is easy to talk and down to earth." Carl
