I hired the law office of Castellanos & Associates, APLC in connection with a divorce. At the time, I was emotionally and legally raw. My first contact at the law firm was with Jackie, a legal assistant, who is friendly, prompt, and reassuring.
Shortly thereafter, I met Attorney, Edwin Castellanos. I immediately found him to be honest and direct about the legal aspects of my case. When it came to discussing legal fees, Mr. Castellanos was fair and quite reasonable about what he would and would not charge me when handling my divorce.
From the beginning, I immediately felt I came to the right place.
Mr. Castellanos was extremely knowledgeable about the law and knew right away what action he needed to take. Mr. Castellanos and his staff kept me informed about the important details of my case and there was no charge for the extra time it took to inform me on the status of my case.
Mr. Castellanos was always straightforward with me about the legal aspects of my case and all of my options. I found Mr. Castellanos to be patient, understanding and reassuring. More importantly, I believe Mr. Castellanos always did what was right to successfully resolve my case.
Dealing with divorce, especially the mediation process was upsetting. However, Mr. Castellanos always kept me calm and focused during the mediation process. In the end, I was pleased with the results and the way that Mr. Castellanos fought for me.
Mr. Castellanos showed me kindness and empathy during a difficult period. When I was concerned about the costs involved with legal representation, Mr. Castellanos was not only reasonable but provided me with options and I am grateful.
If you want a no nonsense approach to successfully resolving your divorce, I would highly recommend Attorney, Edwin Castellanos from the law firm of Castellanos & Associate, APLC.
I really appreciate the way you fight for my daughter. You are honest, reliable, patient, nice and you never promise anything that is not true. I love your team also; they are very caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. I would like to thank you so much for everything; you are the most amazing Lawyer.
I had the pleasure of working with Los Angeles divorce lawyer, Edwin Castellanos and the family attorneys at Castellanos & Associates, APLC. I was facing a difficult child custody dispute involving my spouse during our divorce. In an effort to gain what he thought would be a more favorable custody decision, my spouse and his divorce attorney fought hard to move our divorce from Los Angeles to Orange County. They tried to do this even though we were living in the Los Angeles area. This was a stressful and terrible situation, and Mr. Castellanos provided me with straight forward, reasonable advice on how to go forward with my family law case. Mr. Castellanos was not only able to keep my case in Los Angeles, but my spouse’s attempt at gaining custody failed. I am delighted and grateful to Mr. Castellanos and his family law attorneys for the results they were able to achieve on my behalf. I can wholeheartedly recommend Edwin for any serious family law issue you may be facing. His staff is equally competent and compassionate. Thank you again Mr. Castellanos!
Mr. Castellanos offered me a professional service. His expertise helped me solve a custody case that benefited my children greatly. I am very glad that I hired his office. For the rest of my life, I will be very thankful to him.
I plan on writing a testimonial for your office as a whole, and independently I would like to include the work we all did years ago.......Just to get 50% custody legal or physical, I had not seen my daughter for 9 months, when I came in to your office the first time, everyone was so supportive and encouraging. I would not have gotten through those years without all your hard work and reassurances ( the TRUTH was the last thing I wanted to hear, I was so distraught and emotionally suffering...I was DESPERATE to be with my daughter ) you made the process relatable, and took over where I needed your assistance most. I was scared to believe in someone ....especially a lawyer!! Not to disrespect anyone in the awful agonizing job of bringing families together, and trying to prove without a doubt that the 'best interest of the minor' was your goal. I am grateful that law school helped Mr. Castellano's and his beautiful wife find their passion and that they are practicing every day to change children's lives, and make the word 'FAMILY' mean something. Its still hard to believe my daughter is happy, her parents dropped the ball, but in the end you were right there every step of the way! I was never led to believe I would win, I was financially and emotionally exhausted, but in our first meeting you laid it out, and told me the time period, process, and paperwork, would take at least 3-5 hearings.....my situation required this, and continuity, repetition, and hard work would get us there. This is what matters most, You always told the truth, and I consider you and your entire office family.
I would like to do an update to this because of our current victory, I hope your staff and you really know how important an appreciated you are.
