I've had the pleasure of knowing Alan for quite a few years. He has represented me in in all of my legal matters, in which I have never been disappointed. Alan fights hard for his clients and is very good at what he does. I would highly recommend Alan. He is the kind of attorney you want on your side, honest, works hard, professional, committed, passionate about Law and is extremely knowledgeable about the legal system. He takes no BS and gets the job done.

I had a 2nd DUI case, and hired Alan for this case. Alan is very professional and when he says he's going to get the job done and make this happen, he does. I would recommend Alan to anyone. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Thanks

I was very pleased with Mr. Castillo and his firm providing all the support necessary to get my case dismissed. I reached out to Mr. Castillo through his website and he responded within minutes. Since this was my first experience working with a lawyer I did not know what to expect. Mr. Castillo helped me through the process with professional guideance and was very respectful of my situation. All of our communications that were scheduled were on time and the commitments were kept.
I would highly recommend Mr. Castillo and his firm.

Mr. Castillo assisted me with a 2nd DUI case. My circumstances were more complex than an average DUI and Alan stepped in willing and ready to defend. He read my case extensively and knew exactly how to find the right discovery and develop a plan of action to communicate with the judge for mitigating my sentencing. What could have been serious jail time ended up being a slap on the wrist. I highly recommend Alan and the rest of the team at Barry Simons Law Offices.

Alan Castillo is an absolutely an amazing attorney!
I had an extremely difficult case. I was devastated about my DUI arrest and was thinking of the worst out come. I am a self employed professional and knew I needed to do what ever it takes to save my career, my family and my life. When I first met Alan he assured my that he would fight hard to keep what I worked so hard for and not let this incident ruin the rest of my life. His expertise in knowing the law and the legal system is second to none. He is a master in the court room. He is tireless and always exhausts every possible opportunity to get best possible result for his client. Of course I had to do my part with his instruction and gained my trust as we navigated the way though the legal system. He did more than I ever could have hoped and always assured me, through his experience, that I would make it through this difficult time. He always does what he says and he delivered extremely incredible results, even more than I expected. He literally saved my livelihood and life. Thank you Alan.

If you want the best then you want Alan Castillo. You want the attorney who knows more more than just the Law. In addition to the Law, Alan knows the legal system so incredibly well and his intuition is brilliant. I was facing a potential Felony DUI which would have had a very negative effect upon my career. I was devastated. My anxiety was through the roof. Alan convinced a very hard nosed DA to Strike a Prior, rendering my DUI a misdeameanor. My relief was incredible. If you are reading this and have a DUI you know that anxiety. I went to Law School and practiced in another state. I know what to look for in an attorney. When it comes to a DUI don't let your fate rest in the hands of anyone but the best. Alan Castillo gets results.

Hard to find a lawyer that has the skill, legal mind and experience that you get in Alan Castillo. As a criminal attorney I often call Alan to discuss cases knowing that he has the background to find answers. He gets results that others cannot. As one of the preeminent attorneys in Orange County he is simply exceptional.

I am a retired attorney. Alan Castillo represented my wife in a DUI case that was complicated by our defense based upon a mistake of fact. The Orange County DA was extremely aggressive and not willing to even discuss a negotiated plea. Alan's effectiveness with the judge in a discussion between the judge, Alan and the DA was described by the judge as "robust" and resulted in the judge changing his view of the case and granting us the mistake of fact defense. Not long after that, for a variety of reasons that did not put the DA in good stead with the judge, the DA agreed to drop the DUI charge and change it to a reckless driving charge to which we agreed to plead guilty. Alan's effectiveness as an advocate carried the day and he was even complimented by the judge for his advocacy at the conclusion of the case. During my legal career which spanned some 30+ years, I served as the general
counsel to a multi-national company and worked with trial and business lawyers around the world . I can say that Alan Castillo is a terrific advocate and works extremely hard for the client's interests. My wife and I recommend him highly.

I found Alan during a very difficult time in my life after a DUI arrest. It was a legitimate turning point in my life as I was ready for a change. I knew my family was depending on me to get my life straight but I was facing a significant amount of legal trouble. Alan was amazing through the entire process. His knowledge and experience was evident immediately and he helped my wife and me navigate the extensive legal process. I had a great deal of anxiety because of the situation I had placed myself in. Looking back, I know that Alan was the best person to help me through this journey from a legal perspective. He handled everything like a true professional and I am glad he was in my corner. I think he truly cared about me as a client and a person.
I have 25 months sober now and as I look back on the entire experience I am thankful Alan handled my case. I highly recommend him to anyone facing a similar situation.

I recommend Alan without hesitation. He is knowledgeable, caring, and competent. Without hiring Alan and the rest of the team at Barry T Simons, I would have been stuck with a DUI charge on my record. I have no doubt in my mind that it was Alan's perseverance with my case that led to a lesser conviction. It took over a year for my case to finally be settled. Throughout this difficult time Alan always kept me informed and I felt as though I could always call if I had questions. He consistently explained things well and was clear about my options. He was very helpful at all times and gave sound advice. I am extremely happy with my decision to hire Alan.
