Dr. Casey Jordan, Criminologist - Attorney



Casey Jordan has done more than a thousand TV spots on major networks as an expert on violent crime.

"Jordan is energetic and clearly passionate about her work. Able to cite statistics from memory, she also emphasizes the people behind the stats, the victims and their families. Somehow, she remains positive.
