Elizabeth Casey represents clients in high-stakes commercial disputes, class action cases, and white collar matters at the trial and appellate levels. Liz has extensive courtroom experience, having litigated multiple jury and bench trials in both state and federal courts. At the trial level, she has second-chaired more than a dozen witness examinations, handled direct and cross examinations in front of juries, and presented oral arguments in federal district court. Most recently, she second-chaired the defense of a client in a federal criminal prosecution, who was acquitted after a five-week jury trial.
Liz also has a significant appellate practice. She regularly works with teams on direct appeals and assists clients with amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the intermediate appellate courts. Liz also leverages her trial and appellate experience to serve as on-site appellate counsel during trials in state and federal courts. In that role, she has negotiated jury instructions, advised trial teams regarding preservation issues, and drafted critical briefs at all stages of litigation — from successful motions in limine, to directed verdict motions and post-trial briefing, to appeals.
She has been recognized by the firm for her robust pro bono practice, which focuses primarily on civil rights matters, criminal justice reform and issues relevant to indigent communities in Pennsylvania.
Prior to joining the firm, Liz clerked for the Hon. Joel H. Slomsky of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
