Areas of Focus
Casey has been a city’s outside city attorney for over the past 25 years. He has employed his municipal law expertise to represent owners and developers in their land use and zoning matters in other jurisdictions. Casey has also been representing parties in land condemnation and eminent domain matters for over the past 25 years. These practice areas are all related to Casey’s fundamental belief that the protection of property rights is fundamental to protecting all other rights and freedoms. In the context of property rights being infringed upon, such as by a zoning police power, or property rights being appropriated by the government, such as in a condemnation action, private property rights are still being protected by ensuring due process and payment of just compensation. There will always be a tension between private property rights and various forces which seek to infringe on or appropriate them, and this is the space where Casey has focused his legal practice.
