I would like to thank the entire staff at Anton Castro law firm for handling my case in a very professional manner. After finding myself in a legal situation without notice, I contacted Mr. Castro and explained what transpired and he knew exactly how to handle it. Mr. Castro represented me in court and the judge ruled in my favor, I am able to move on with my life with peace of mind and no longer have to worry about my freedom being jeopardized. Again, Thank you all!

During a trying time, I had the pleasure of retaining John Castro as my lawyer, based on the recommendation of a friend. He was able to achieve the best scenario in my case and kept me informed throughout the process. He was thorough and always available to answer my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

John Castroâ€™s legal expertise and level of commitment is matched by no other. As a young professional concerned with keeping a clean criminal record, I spent a fair amount of time doing my home work when looking for representation for my first (and only) DUI. Ultimately, I decided to hire Mr. Castro and it proved to be a great decision.
John personally handled my case from start to finish and guided me through the entire process. John encouraged me to contact him anytime a new question or concern came up along the way. Whether it was via email or phone, he always answered my questions fully and promptly. Throughout the process he was always very upfront and honest with the questions I posed.
When it came time to go to court, Johnâ€™s connections and ability to negotiate were vital in helping me achieve my goal of reducing my charge to Reckless Driving. Before we set foot into the courtroom he had already spoken with the prosecutor that was handling my case. They offered a reduced charge of Reckless Driving with adjudication of guilt after Johnâ€™s first discussion with them. In the courtroom it was clear he was prepared to handle anything that came our way. Eventually he was able to convince the prosecution to reduce my case to Reckless Driving without adjudication of guilt, so I have the opportunity to get these records sealed. He even offered to help me with this process once my probationary period is complete.
John told me upfront that I would be able to find representation both less expensive and more expensive than his. For the service I received, I felt he was worth every penny. Without his guidance I donâ€™t know how I would have made it through this stressful time in my life. For anyone seeking legal advice, I highly recommend Anton Castro Law. Thanks again, John!

I am actually writing this for what this man has done for my sister, Carol. After another attorney held her case until it was 2 weeks short of the statute of limitations, and then told her to find another lawyer...she was so panic stricken I did not know what to do! She tried many PI attorneys in Florida-but every single one of them refused to take the case so late into it. I was so totally frustrated at being in NC & not being able to help, that I just went on the internet and spent many hours digging up info. Quite by accident I found the AVVO site & thought, "What the heck?" Not only did this man keep in constant contact with her-but HE ACTUALLY FOUND HER AN ATTY IN JACKSONVILLE where the accident actually occurred!!!! He has called her 4 times to reassure her that she need not panic & they WILL help her. I am totally humbled by the amount of time Mr. Castro has put into this & would highly recommend him to anyone in FL who needs help. After reading his bio, I am in awe. There are no words to express how grateful I am for the assistance & reassurance Mr. Castro has given to my sister. His dedication to customer service & excellence in his chosen profession are admirable to say the least.

John Castro is knowledgeable in criminal law and personal injury law, and works hard to advocate for his clients. He is extremely dedicated, gives personal attention to each case and routinely updates his clients on the status of the case. I would highly recommend John Castro to anybody looking for a spectacular Tampa criminal law attorney or Tampa personal injury attorney.

Mr. Castro handled the sealing and expungment of a case I had in Florida from many years ago. I live in New York and it was appreciated that he was able to handle everything long distance with ease.
He was proactive in keeping me updated as things moved along, which is not something I have experienced with other law practices.
I highly recommend Mr. Castro and his firm

When I was faced with a DUI I turned to John Castro as my lawyer. I didn't take the breathalyzer test, but I did the field sobriety test which was documented on video. When I asked John how the video looked he informed that it wasn't going to be an easy case. But he was up for the challenge. And he won that challenge! He not only brought my charges down to reckless driving, but he made me feel very comforted in this scary time of my life. If I ever had any questions he was always there with the answers. Whenever I compare DUI stories with others who have had them, I always feel so lucky to have had John as my lawyer. He did a remarkable job with my case. I HIGHLY recommend him.

On the way to a lunch meeting, CRASH! Ouch. Automatic neck and lower back ache? How's that possible. Well... it is! I tried to blow off the fact that I had any injuries at first, and I was definitely reluctant to hire a lawyer (not wanting to play the "everyone sues now" game), but after experiencing chronic pain, I decided to seek the advice on an attorney that deals with personal injury law.
I contacted John Castro and informed him of my recent accident. I explained that I was having chronic pain not to mention the damage to my vehicle. He expressed his concern and knowledge in which he immediately referred me to a local doctor. After being reviewed by the doctor, it was determined that I would need further procedures performed including MRIs and Xrays. Results concluded that I would need weekly therapy in order to nurse and correct the damage.
Overwhelmed by trying to deal with the insurance company of the “at-fault driver,” I decided to hire John Castro to deal with my personal injury case. He kept me informed and involved every step of the way and was diligent about answering any and all questions. Both John and his staff were extremely courteous and professional, and acted as nothing other than an advocate for my rights.
I was very pleased with my experience with John's firm, and would use him again for future legal needs (not to mention the settlement I received for future medical costs). I highly recommend his services!

Ealier in 2010 I was pulled over for DUI. The truth is that I only had a couple of drinks (I realize that everyone who gets DUI's say that but I'm on honest person writing an honest review) Either way, the police officer did not care and truthfully was very rude. The experience was a nightmare. However, I called Attorney John Castro for his help and began working on my case right away. Although attorneys can be very busy, Attorney Castro always found time to call me back to answer any questions I had. Everytime he had new information he would contact me right away to tell me. Attorney Castro worked above and beyond on my case and at the end of the day by DUI was reduced to a reckless driving. He cleared my name and gave me my life back. But most important, he treated me as a friend and not as a client. He kept telling me that everything was going to be okay and at the end of they day he was RIGHT!!!! I highly suggest to anyone to hire Attorney Castro for any legal help. HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
