Knowledgeable and Easy to Work With
Dealing with legal issues can be scary for the layperson such as myself. When I faced a job loss, I consulted Javier Castillo. The initial consultation was free where he laid out my options. My personal situation changed and the bankruptcy wasn’t necessary after all, but because I had such a great experience with Javier and his office, I retained him to complete my divorce. I now refer my friends and family to him. My parents hired him for estate planning. I’m a very happy client.

PERSONAL INJURY
I RETAINED CASTILLO LAW FIRM TO HANDLE MY PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENT WITH THE CITY OF BAKERSFIELD. HE DID NOT FILE THE ACTION IN A RESPECTED TIME LIMIT AND THE CLAIM WAS DENIED BY THE CITY AS HE FILE ALMOST 1 YEAR LATER
Response from Javier Castillo July 16, 2019
Gilbert, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you. However, please note that your case is not lost, as the denial by the city of Bakersfield is a preliminary step. As I have mentioned to you before, your causes of action can still be filed with the Superior Court, as long as you do it prior to November 01, 2019. At the very least, I urge you to contact other counsel for legal advice immediately.
