He graduated from the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 2010 and earned a Master of Accounting degree in 2011. Casey also graduated from the UNC School of Law in 2014 and has been working with Barringer Sasser, LLP since then.
Casey first began working in the legal industry with Larry W. Pitts, Attorney at Law, in Newton, North Carolina, in the areas of estate, tax & trust planning & administration, and closely-held business transactions. Mr. Pitts also served for many years as the attorney for the City of Newton, and involved Casey in matters including land use planning, zoning, local government litigation, and local government budgeting and financial operations.
Casey also “grew up” working for Debora B. Wentz, CPA, in tax, audit & attestation accounting matters. He helped complete tax return preparation for over 500 individuals, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations each tax season from 2005 through 2015. After tax season was done in each of these years, he completed audit and attestation services, usually focusing in the governmental and non-profit sectors.
During Casey’s 2nd year at UNC Law School, he was asked by Senator Tamara Barringer to work as a legislative assistant during the 2013 “long session” of the General Assembly. Deploying his knowledge as a tax return preparer and his legal and accounting research skills, Casey worked closely with numerous state legislators, legislative and executive branch staff, and several lobbyists to forge the 2013 major reforms to North Carolina state tax law. He also helped pass extensive changes and updates to both North Carolina’s LLC laws and our Business Corporation Act.
Casey is currently teaching business law as a Professor of the Practice for the Masters of Accounting program at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.
Casey is a member of the North Carolina Association of CPAs, the AICPA, the Tenth Judicial District Bar, and the NC Bar Association. He coaches fitness classes at a local CrossFit® gym, gardens and cooks with his wife, and goes on daily walks with their 130 pound Great Pyrenees dog, Teddy.
