Working with Casey Munch Saylor on my lawsuit was very reassuring. I felt she was truly dedicated to resolve a favorable outcome for my case. Her efforts went above and beyond researching my issue. In her friendly, professional manner she always took time to relay information keeping me informed and answered all of my questions."

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.
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.
