Protecting Clients' Interests And Building Lasting Relationships

I am Brian Casserly, principal attorney and founder of The Casserly Firm. From my law office in Newport Beach, I represent clients all over the country who have real estate interests in California.

As the son of a successful real estate developer, I have focused my law practice on real estate and business matters since I began practicing in 1976. My very first job out of law school was as in-house counsel for Century 21 Real Estate LLC. I ultimately went on to become a senior- and partner-level lawyer at large law firms before launching my own practice in 2008.

At The Casserly Firm, my clients are buyers, sellers, lenders, builders, developers and investors who rely on me for sound solutions and effective advocacy. I handle a variety of real estate and business transactions, but the majority of my work involves guiding clients through complex real estate matters including common interest subdivisions, such as condominiums and planned developments; commercial real estate transactions; and commercial leasing processes.

Why Choose The Casserly Firm?

I am experienced. I have spent more than 38 years representing clients in real estate and business transactions in California. I counseled clients both during and in the aftermath of three market crashes, and those experiences inform how I evaluate and prioritize risks and benefits for my clients today.

I am an entrepreneur with real-world business knowledge. I opened the doors of my private practice during one of the toughest financial climates in decades and I am doing well. I have a firsthand understanding of why my clients — developers, investors and other professionals — need focused, cost-effective legal counsel.

I have a reputation you can trust. Few of my competitors in Southern California practice real estate law at my level. I have handled complex real estate matters, such as condominium developments, adeptly for decades. I am AV Preeminent peer review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell. This is the organization's highest rating. Additionally, I am a member of the State Bar of California; the Orange County Bar Association; The Federalist Society; the Building Industry Association and the Sigma Chi Bar Association. While I am proud to have a great network and the respect of my peers, building long-term relationships with my clients is the true testimony to my success.
