Michael Castillo has always been ready to help. He's a great lawyer that knows what he's doing.
I know I can always call him if I ever get into any trouble. I'm glad to know he has my back in court.

After the public defender assumed i was guilty and did not want to fight in court i placed a call to LVCD and was treaded as innocent right from the start. Michael and Daniel Young both treated my case as a high profile case. They kept me in the information circle, i felt very comfortable and prepared in court. They had a very extensive knowledge of the case and was able to pick out the D.A.'s witnesses lies without hesitation.Bottom line they there job very well. Michaels closing argument showed a very high level of intellect, intelligence, confidence, and the upmost respect for me the defendent and the courts aswell.

Mr. Young worked on my DUI case and I was extremely amazed with is analysis of my case and his ability to break down facts pertaining to the case. Mr. Young is extremely professional and excels in communication which is extremely important for clients such as myself who always want to know what’s going on. I must mention his punctuality for meetings and court cases. A lot of attorneys are quick headed and in my opinion don’t spend an adequate amount of time listening to their clients. Mr. Young not only listens, but it’s obvious he thinks about what you said prior to answering, rather than giving the quick answer without listening fully to your question, I was extremely amazed how personalized my service was. Mr. Young showed up 45 minutes before my case to discuss options which is something I rarely witness. As far as Nevada Laws goes, Mr. Young is up to date and has taught me a few things that I didn't know. I thought I researched everything pertaining to DUI laws, however, I was quite surprised and extremely impressed with the additional information that I have learned. If you're stuck in a DUI mess don't go at it alone.
