During law school, Ms. Cassett worked for the Public Defenders’ Office in Wilmington, Delaware. She worked on the Innocence Project, which focused on new DNA evidence and technology to aid those wrongfully incarcerated.
After completing law school, Ms. Cassett decided to dedicate her career entirely to personal injury litigation. She initially began working for insurance companies, defending cases brought by injured individuals. She was an associate attorney at a reputable law firm in Cape May County for approximately 10 years.
In 2015, Ms. Cassett realized that she was on the wrong side. Thereafter, she began fighting for people injured in accidents. Having the unique experience of working for insurance companies for nearly a decade, Ms. Cassett knew exactly how to fight against them. She is an experienced trial attorney and is always ready to take a case before a jury.
Having been attacked by a dog as a small child, she found representing individuals attacked by dogs most rewarding. She understood just how horrific that experience could be for people, especially children. Her personal experience, combined with her extensive legal background, makes her an excellent “dog bite lawyer”.
