Attorney Profile

In 2015, Casey joined the law firm of Bennett, Weston, LaJone & Turner, P.C. The firm's practice extends throughout the country. The practice is focused on the areas of civil litigation, real estate, dispute resolution, business litigation, employment law and municipal law, among others. Casey is a trial attorney and his practice is devoted to litigation. He specializes in business and employment lawsuits, including breach of contract, trade secrets, tortious interference, wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016, Casey was awarded the honor of becoming a Rising Star among the Super Lawyers of Texas, a Thompson Reuters company. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. The attorneys selected to Rising Stars are limited to 2.5% of the outstanding, emerging lawyers in Texas who are age 40 and under, or who have been practicing 10 years or less.

In 2013, Casey was inducted into the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is recognized as one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States and is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards and settlements. Less than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. Membership acknowledges excellence in advocacy for attorneys who have acted as principal counsel in at least one case in which their client received a verdict, award or settlement in the amount of 1 million dollars or more. 

Casey also has extensive appellate experience, including two victories in the Supreme Court of Texas. See City of Corsicana v. Stewart, 249 S.W.3d 412 (Tex. 2008) (per curiam) and Denton County v. Beynon, 283 S.W.3d 329 (Tex. 2009).

Casey attended the University of Mississippi and graduated with academic honors (cum laude) in 1999. He then went on to receive his law degree from Baylor Law School in 2002. While at Baylor, Casey competed in moot court and advanced to become a moot court finalist and earn his membership in the Order of Barristers. Barristers include students who are the top 10 speakers in moot court competition. 

Casey is married to Elayna Erick and is the proud father of his two boys, Henry and Arthur. He and his family live in Dallas, Texas and are members of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.
