Who is Casey Xavier?

Casey Xavier is a Louisiana native, but Las Vegas is his forever home. His ambition to impact his community, overcome adversity, discredit naysayers, and speak truth to power has burned within him since his youth. His passion led him to become a trial lawyer. Then, it led him to founding Xavier Injury Law.

At the age of 18, Casey decided to run for the city council of his hometown in Louisiana. He was elected at the age of 20, becoming the youngest elected official in Louisiana history. By unanimous vote of his fellow council members, he was appointed mayor pro-tempore of the city at the same age. And at age 21, his state political party elected him as the party’s vice-chair of elected officials.

Casey has lived and worked all over America before making Las Vegas his home. Before law, his experience ranged from interning for a congressman on Capitol Hill to work that entailed facilitating the educational development of people from six continents. He also worked in the legal tech industry helping law firms across America grow their businesses.

Casey is proud to have recovered millions of dollars for his clients. Because in America’s civil justice system, money is the only justice possible. And trial by jury for money is a constitutional right. When people are harmed by others, Casey believes the injured deserve to be compensated, for the full value of what has been taken away from them and for what they have been left with.

Before founding Xavier Injury Law, Casey for a brief time ran the litigation department at Heidari Law Group where he recovered millions of dollars for his clients. He quickly felt the need to depart and start his own firm. Before that, Casey was a trial lawyer at Claggett & Sykes Law Firm. Trials are Casey’s passion. He believes being a trial lawyer is his calling in life, that he’s walking in his life’s purpose. He believes there’s a lot of good for him to do in the world – like making companies right their wrongs and punishing companies when they have refused to learn their lesson. Casey believes that his work will make the world just a little safer and a little bit better.

Casey has refined his trials skills through the Mark Lanier Trial Academy Master Class, Rick Friedman’s Ethos Advocacy Institute, and Trial Lawyers University. Casey obtained his bachelor’s degree from University of Louisiana, Lafayette and later pursued graduate studies in international affairs at University of California, San Diego. He obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from University of Nevada, Las Vegas – William S. Boyd School of Law in 2020. In his first year of law school – only about 3 months in – Casey won Boyd Law School’s annual client counseling competition, beating out the whole law school. Casey has continued winning at the law ever since. And he’s prepared to win for you too.

Ethos [ee-thohs]:

character, spirit, or moral nature

“Being a trial lawyer is my passion. I believe it’s my calling in life. And I care…a lot, about my clients and the work that I do for them. I try to do the right thing, even when it hurts. And sometimes, people don’t understand me. But that’s okay. I’ll let my results make things clear.”
