"Cassady was very thorough and knowledgeable in providing counsel toward the issues and questions I had in my SBA EIDL loan. I would recommend working with him as you can tell he cares and has your best interest in mind to help achieve whatever result you are looking for."
"I was involved in a very serious traffic accident with injuries. Due to the nature of the accident, I retained criminal defense attorney Cassady Toles. From my personal experience, I could not recommend a more professional, caring, and knowledgeable attorney than Cassady. He spent countless hours with me, patiently explaining and guiding me thru the legal technicalities and complexities of the case. In the courtroom he exuded competence and did not back down. Needless to say, he won the case in court, and that drastically changed my life for the better. I now have Cassady on speed dial just in case life throws me some more unexpected challenges. Cassady is the best of the best, and I cannot recommend a better criminal defense attorney. Thank you Cassady!"
"Having Cassady on my board of directors means never having to lose sleep at night. Before an issue can even arise, he is on top of it. 6 months since the last staff sexual harassment training? Cassady's not going to let that pass, and I don't even have to worry or ask about it. It's done. HR problem? Cassady will not only take care of it, he will do it in a way that makes damn sure the organization as a whole is safe. He is like a legal bodyguard for my non-profit, and I sleep easier at night knowing he is keeping us safe."
