About Casey Sanders

As a family law attorney, Casey Sanders is fiercely committed to his client’s well-being. He understands that his clients are dealing with stress and uncertainty, and is determined to protect what is most important to them.

"I’m not only an attorney helping a client,” says Casey. “I’m also one human being helping another human being. I believe that approach is fundamental to being a good family law attorney."

Casey excels not only in working with clients to successfully resolve their legal issues, but also in helping people define their goals for life after their family law matter is resolved. “I believe that with proper legal guidance, my clients can build a better and brighter future for themselves and their families,” Casey says.

Casey focuses his practice on divorce and custody cases, including parenting plans and parenting plan modifications. He is an active member of the Vancouver community and the Clark County Bar Association. He currently serves as president of the Clark County Bar Association Family Law Section.

In his off hours, Casey and his wife explore the outdoors – hiking, biking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding – and take landscape photographs of all the places they experience on their adventures. He also continues to support his alma mater as a huge Oregon Ducks football fan.
