Mr. Joseph Casale has been serving the Rhode Island community for over 20 years in the practice of law. Attorney Casale established Aquidneck Legal Center in November 2004 to bring affordable legal services to the Island of Aquidneck and its’ surrounding areas. Aquidneck Legal Center is a General Practice with an emphasis on the areas of Personal Injury Law, Criminal, Divorce and Family Law Matters, Estate Planning, Probate, Elder Law as well as Bankruptcy and Collection work. Public service is also a big part of Casale’s life, as evidenced by his volunteer activities. He participates in Ask a Lawyer, is a member of the Rhode Island Bar Association program called Volunteer Lawyers, and a member of the Justinian Law Society. He frequently speaks at senior centers to educate the elderly on social security issues, wills and estates, and elder law. He even travels to the homes of low-income clients to be sure they get the help they need. In 1997, Casale became involved with the Arc of Blackstone Valley, an organization that provides a variety of services to people with mental retardation and their families. Casale often works on guardianship cases, and his concern for the clients is evident. He tries to let them retain as much decision-making power over their lives as they can.
