About Utopia Cassady

Utopia ("Topie") Conger Cassady grew up in Jackson, Tennessee, where her father was a 4 consecutive term mayor and her mother was a public school teacher.   After receiving her Masters in Medical Social Work from Tulane with a Certificate in Gerontology, she began her first career working for the New Orleans AIDS Project at a time when society often treated AIDS patients as lepers.  She continued that work in Alabama for Mobile AIDS Support Services.   She gained further experience in the medical community as a medical social worker at Mobile Infirmary and at the University of South Alabama Medical Center. In 2001 she graduated from law school and was admitted to the Alabama Bar.  Her prior experience in medical social work interacting with Medicare, Medicaid, and the Social Security Administration, provided her with skills not taught in law school. Those skills translated effectively into her wills, trusts, estates, elder law, Social Security disability, and probate practice. Her work has included succession planning and asset protection for families experiencing rapid wealth growth due to oil exploration in Conecuh County, Alabama.    When litigation is necessary to protect clients, she works closely with her partner, who is board certified in civil trial law.   E-Mail Topie.
