Casey Dereus
Bragar Eagel & Squire PC
New York,

Casey is an Associate with Bragar, Eagel & Squire. Attorneys in the greater New Orleans area come to Casey for help on complicated legal matters and for her writing skills. She is known as a smart, thorough, and hard-working advocate. 

If you have legal issues in the following areas, Casey wants to help:

  • Social Media Problems
  • Securities Fraud
  • Privacy Law
  • Consumer Complaints
  • Hurricane Claims
  • Personal Injury

Casey moved to New Orleans in 2010 and fell in love with the city. She attended graduate school at Tulane where she earned her Master’s and met her husband. Later, Casey attended law school at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law where she served as Managing Print Editor on the Loyola Law Review and graduated magna cum laude.

Since graduating, Casey has been a devoted plaintiff attorney. Casey has handled more than 1,000 first-party property cases, including business interruption claims and flood insurance and hurricane claims; complicated, contested-liability personal injury claims; negligent security claims (like shootings at apartment complexes); and rideshare cases.

Although Casey is interested in many areas of the law, she currently focuses her practice on privacy law, social media, consumer protection, securities law, and derivative actions. She filed the first lawsuit against TikTok for a violation of BIPA laws, resulting in a $92 million settlement.


She has been recognized by the Louisiana State Bar Association YLD as a Top 40 Under 40 lawyer; Super Lawyers as a Rising Star, and by the National Trial Lawyers in their Top 40 Under 40. Casey is fluent in French and can accommodate clients from France or other Francophone countries.
