Casey Obren, grew up in a small town in Northern Arizona before making the move to the big city to complete her various degrees in Elementary Education, Special Education, and a Juris Doctor. Her first career was spent molding the minds of young children as a Special Education Teacher. Her teaching career provided her with not only the critical thinking skills which set a strong foundation for the analytical reasoning required in the practice of law but also the organizational strategies required to draft legal documents. She acquired immense patience working with children, which directly correlates to her work in estate planning. After spending 5 years teaching in various rural and urban Arizona communities, she made a huge shift in her career and decided to return to school to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an attorney.
Casey attended law school at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. She brings a great deal of prosecutorial experience, having spent time in the public sector, where she worked at Coconino and Maricopa County Attorney’s Offices in their criminal divisions prosecuting felonies. She also spent time in Washington D.C. where she worked with the Department of Justice in their Office of International Affairs Division, where she focused on extraditions with numerous countries in South America. Prior to her recent placement at Forakis Law, she specialized in administrative and military law, with an emphasis on correction of records applications for active, reserve, and veterans amongst the different branches of the military. Casey has a kind heart, and a passion for ensuring the best outcome for each of her clients. Her communication and interpersonal skills benefit her ability to build a strong rapport and personal connection with her clients, colleagues, and superiors.
In her spare time, she is an avid archery shooter, plays in several adult volleyball and softball leagues, and camps as her time permits. She enjoys escaping the Phoenix heat and returning to her small-town roots visiting her family in the high country. Her favorite quote is, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn" from Benjamin Franklin.
