I am so very fortunate to have found and retained the legal services of CASP. I do not know what I would have done without the services of this fantastic law firm. They are a caring group of attorney’s that are very professional and deliver. The line of communication from client to attorney are always open. Calls are always promptly returned and questions I have had, regardless whether they were simple or involved, were answered patiently and to my satisfaction. If you have been served with a SLAPP lawsuit you need not go anywhere else, period. I highly recommend the firm and will always feel indebted to them. We the public are fortunate indeed to have CASP in our corner!
CASP did an outstanding job representing me in the Superior Court and in the Court of Appeal, where we were ultimately successful. I contacted at least three professionals in the practice area before retaining CASP, but no one else was willing to take on my case. I think that CASP’s knowledge of and experience with anti-SLAPP motions gives them the confidence to take on complex cases like mine. I am really grateful that CASP took my case and got the lawsuit against me dismissed.
In my experience, the CASP attorneys really care about their clients, and they do everything they can to reduce out of pocket fees and expenses. Not only did they take my case, but they also took the time to research the possibility of my insurance policies covering the legal expenses.
The attorneys at CASP are ethical and work with a high level of professionalism and integrity. I highly recommend CASP to prospective clients.

I turned to CASP when I and my then 13-year-old daughter were SLAPPed for speaking to government officials about alarming behavior we believed to be criminal. As a parent, I knew I was acting in the best interest of my child, and we never imagined that our actions would result in the litigation that ensued. It was a great relief to have CASP so ably defend us and our First Amendment rights. We feel very fortunate to have found such a knowledgeable and dedicated team of attorneys.”
CASP successfully defended me against a SLAPP and not only vindicated me personally, but helped diffuse the SLAPP filer’s attack on me professionally. I am so grateful that Mark Goldowitz worked to get anti-SLAPP legislation passed in California in time for my case. The anti-SLAPP law preserves justice and protects people who take stands against abuses of power and then become threatened with a lawsuit by Big Money. Being SLAPPed was an extremely stressful experience, but with CASP defending me I knew that I was getting the best representation. Thank you!”
