Catherine "Casey" Saylor is the daughter of founding partners, Jacob and Kim Munch. Casey was born and raised here in Tampa, Florida, and is a graduate of H.B. Plant High School. After graduating from Plant, Casey graduated from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. in Education, majoring in Special Education. During her time at Georgia Southern, Casey was an active member and leader of the Phi Mu Sorority.

After a rewarding three years spent as a Special Education Teacher at Grayson Elementary in Grayson, Georgia, Casey decided to follow in her parents' footsteps and pursue a law degree. As a life-long advocate, Casey's history of advocating for children with special needs has proven to bring a unique quality to her work in representing accident victims.

Casey graduated from Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida in December of 2014. While at Stetson, she graduated with honors, participated in a year-long honors program, and received multiple high grade awards. Casey also had the great honor of interning with United States Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli during her last semester at Stetson. At Stetson, Casey was selected to be a Student Ambassador, and held memberships in the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers at Stetson and the Admiralty Law Society. Casey is a Florida Bar board certified specialist in admiralty and maritime law.

Much like her father, Casey and her brothers spent countless days out on the boat, learning basic boating skills and navigational rules of the road at a young age. A true Florida girl, Casey has always had a great appreciation for life on the water. Now this appreciation has translated into a dedication to the study of maritime law and advocating for victims of maritime-related accidents.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
