About Kyle

Learn Kyle’s areas of practice.

I help injured clients from California to Nevada and immigrants worldwide.

 

I received honors from Chambers and Partners, Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and Martindale-Hubbell.

 

During World War II, the U.S. government detained my U.S. citizen grandparents because of their Japanese ancestry.  Learning about this history and serving as my grandfather's caretaker inspired me to protect immigrants’ rights.

 

In my legal practice, I apply principles I learned from a ten-day silent meditation course, yoga, and coaching basketball.  I serve on the Board of Trustees for the Nevada Bar Foundation and a racial justice task force.

Great Attorney
My family spoke with multiple lawyers. They didn't give us any clear answers. But, then we talked to Kyle. Kyle had as many questions for us as we had for him. He took the time to get to know our situation and then gave us a very detailed explanation of our options. He clearly takes the time to actually help people.
Response from Kyle Morishita September 25, 2022
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure speaking with you and I wish you the very best.

Professional and helpful!
An out-of-control car was in a big collison outside our house. Fortunately, everyone was OK. We had a lot of damage (including heavy flooding from a broken hydrant), so I ended up finding Kyle. He was extremely helpful during a crazy and stressful time.

Personal Injury Case
When our family needed help with a personal injury issue, we were referred to Kyle. I really appreciated his responsiveness and review of our case. He thoroughly explained the procedures and all of the likely outcomes. He prepared us for the hearing and informed us of all the evidence we needed to gather. Though we were expecting and preparing for the worst, everything went very well, much better than we had expected. I highly recommend Kyle and his services.

Comprehensive Help
In 2020, my fiance and I sought Kyle's help. Our plans took a big hit because of COVID. We were panicking, but Kyle calmed us down. He worked quickly and saved us. I couldn't be happier with his help.

Highly recommend Mr. Morishita
I’m very happy to say that Mr. Morishita is an excellent lawyer. He helped my husband Miguel get his permanent resident card in less than 2 years. We had a tough case but Mr. Morishita did everything in his power to help us. Mr. Morishita is very professional, has great communication and is Always willing to help. I highly recommend Mr. Morishita. Below is a list of everything Mr. Morishita and his team helped us with. (1) Miguel’s DUI case was pled down to reckless driving; (2) Miguel’s criminal warrant was removed; (3) Miguel’s immigration application was approved; and (4) Miguel was released. This case took a lot of time and effort from several members of the Castroverde team, including: Charlotte, Rocio, Vilma, Craig, Maria, Diana, and Kyle.

Most Professional, Caring, and Honest Firm
By far the most professional, caring and honest firm. I had the pleasure of dealing with Kyle, he is a great human being, he truly cares about people. The reason he became an attorney caught my attention when I read his profile. Kyle listened closely, took notes and gave his honest opinion. We made the huge mistake of hiring a different attorney. But, Kyle still went out of his way to help us. It was too late for Kyle to take the case, but he still delivered the one on one attention and dedication that you don't find in any other firm.

Great immigration Lawyer
Kyle and Diana were amazing helping me with my family's immigration case. They were super responsive, answered all our questions, and guided us through an issue that turned out to be more complicated than I originally imagined. De Castroverde is a great firm and they're lucky to have Kyle.

I worked with Kyle Morishita, for legal guidance on issue related to negligent mechanical work on my vehicle performed by a local car dealership here in Las Vegas.

I highly recommend Kyle if you are in need in of legal representation and want some one who truly cares about you and you challenges.
