Arthur J. Casey is a Partner at the firm’s Silicon Valley office. He began his legal career at Robinson & Wood, Inc. in San Jose, California and was a shareholder for twenty-five years before opening his own practice in 2017. Art offers years of experience defending governmental entities, product liability defendants, national retailers and individual insureds through several of the top national insurance companies. Since many of his clients are self-insured, Art not only understands the importance of trying cases but also the importance of settling and keeping to a budget for cases whether they settle or go to trial.
Art specializes in commercial litigation, with an emphasis on product liability, premises liability and employment litigation. He manages multi-office litigation matters, oversees and evaluates associate work-products, and coordinates discovery. Art receives feedback from clients indicating clients retain him for his “hands on” management of matters from beginning to end, timely and substantive reporting, full preparation for trial, and his consideration of cost-saving measures during litigation and constant exploration of possible early or favorable settlements.
Art was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Santa Clara, California. He received his B.A. in 1981 from the University of San Diego and his J.D. in 1985 from the University of Santa Clara. Art was an author and lecturer for California continuing Education of the Bar (CEB) for several years, including Chapter Author for CEB Publications, California Civil Discovery Practice, 4th Ed.
