The attorneys at Cole Paschall Law have successfully represented clients in a wide variety of criminal cases, including:


An assault is an intentional, unwanted physical contact with another person. It can be as simple as a shove or a punch, or as serious as a stabbing or shooting.

I used Casey Cole for a first time DWI. I was referred multiple other larger firms including D&J and was unsure how to decide but after speaking with Casey Cole he made me feel confident in his expertise. Prices were very reasonable and affordable. The process of working with him and Jessica was very smooth and they were easy to communicate with. I was able to text and communicate with them at any time of the day. The outcome of my hearing was the best I could’ve... received and I am 100% grateful I chose to go with Casey. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a great lawyer! Thank you for everything!! -Nancy Tread more

I was charged with a 3rd degree felony family violence impeding breath facing a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. I meet with several different attorneys who basically said just take a deal without even looking into my case.Mr.Cole took my case for a very affordable price with a payment plan and came up with multiple options for my situation .MR.COLE NEVER 1 TIME TOLD ME TO JUST TAKE A DEAL AND MADE SURE TO DO EVERYTHING HE COULD TO GET THE BEST POSSIBLE... OUTCOME.So when other attorneys told me their not going to drop it your going to have to go to trial, just take a deal your facing 10 years and wouldn't really take me serious .....MR.COLE GOT ME CASE DISMISSED AT THE SECOND COURT DATE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR.COLE. I WOULD MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HIS more

I got my first DWI and just like anyone who went to jail for their first time I was scared and anxious about what was going to happen to me. I interviewed 5 lawyers the next day I got out. All of the other lawyer’s firms were too big to talk to me 1 on 1 and had their paralegals meet with me. I didn’t feel comfortable talking to someone who wasn’t going to be in the court room with me. I met Casey Cole on the first introductory meeting and I knew he was going to... represent me the best. He didn’t make me feel guilty about the arrest, he had an action plan ready for what I needed to do before going to court, and reassured me not to freak out. His office assistant is 10/10 she is available 24/7 and through call or text. I got BLESSED from the heavens because I received my sentenced less than 2 months after my arrest and I got the best possible outcome. Minimum fines, no contact probation, and no breathalyzer. I owe my sanity to this law firm. If you’re considering Casey Cole, just hire more

I Highly Recommend Casey Cole Law Office. Mr. Paschal Is A Very Stand Up Guy, Honest & Very Straightforward; Which Is What I Like In A Lawyer. He Got Me Exactly What I Was Looking For, As Well As Needed With My Legal Situation. Not Only Just One Case, But Two Of My Felony Cases He Worked His Magic. After Signing For My Probation, He Also Had The Judge Approve Of Me Going On My Family Vacation That Was Planned For Months. I Get To Propose To My Fiancé On That Trip... 🤫 All Thanks To Mr. Cole, He Was The Reason For That Being Able To Happen. Another Thing I Liked Is He Actually Took The Time To Understand Me And See What Type Of Man I Was Instead Of Judging Me By The Type Of Case I Had. Trust Me, This Is The Law Office Your Looking For.- Evan Williamsread more

I am more thankful to Casey Cole than words can suffice. What he did for me is amazing. My family and myself were mind-blown by the outcome of my case. I was arrested at the border in San Diego for 4 felony warrants. Mr. Cole promised me one thing and he ended up doing 10 times better than that. Within 48 hours of me hiring him he got all 4 charges dismissed and i was released. I am now back at home with my husband and children and am finally at peace after almost 2... years of living in fear of these warrants. He is an amazing attorney and was recommended to me through a friend that he also represented and helped with her criminal charges. Anyone in need of legal services - this is your guy. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Best money i ever spent. My family will never forget what this man did for us. Thank you Cole Paschall Law. You exceeded all expectations. Can't say it enough. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!read more

Wouldn’t recommend him at all, He didn’t fail to embarrass my girlfriend and himself in court by being over 2 hours late to the first hearing and over an 1 1/2hrs late to the second. Felt like my girlfriend was the least of his worries by telling me that another case took priority over hers the morning of when court dates were scheduled months in advance. 😡 definitely hope he improves his communication!
