Casey represents clients in all areas of family and matrimonial law. She has negotiated and litigated matters in Supreme and Family Court, including issues of contested child custody, high net worth asset division, spousal and child support, multi-state prenuptial agreements, and same-sex divorce; she also handles matters of paternity, support and custody for non-marital children. In addition to her work at the negotiating table and in the trial courts, Casey has brought her exceptional analytic abilities and writing skills to bear at the appellate level, where she has successfully achieved reversal of the trial court.
Casey's clients, many of whom are high-profile figures with sensitive matters, appreciate her intellectual acumen, candor, and understanding of their complex concerns. She has a particular focus on advising clients who have come to need a fresh, thorough review of their matters. Casey is a skilled and detail-oriented negotiator who believes that most family and matrimonial matters should resolve swiftly and out of court. She recognizes, however, that some facts and circumstances require decisive action through litigation, and she prides herself on her ability to anticipate and prepare for litigation well in advance.
Before founding Greenfield Labby, Casey practiced at Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher, LLP. While there, she litigated for a range of international corporate and individual clients. Her work included federal class action defense; antitrust, government compliance and internal corporate investigations; defamation claims; and serving as co-counsel in an Army court-martial appeal.
Casey's own experience as a parent in the courts gives her invaluable perspective on her clients' goals and struggles. Her unique perspective as a family law attorney and as a litigant helps her understand her clients' needs; anticipate adversaries' strategies; and translate the emotional landscape of clients in crisis into a legal and strategic framework.
In addition to practicing family and matrimonial law full-time, Casey has written frequently about family and matrimonial law, legal history, and popular culture for many magazines and newspapers, including The Daily Beast, Slate, and The Huffington Post.
