Castro & Associates are a team of highly-experienced construction trial attorneys.  Collectively, we have over 150 years of experience.  We are one of the few law firms that go out into the field to perform our own independent investigation and failure analysis.  We are equally at home climbing between walls in hard hats or in a courtroom presenting forensic evidence.  Our firm has earned its reputation as respected innovators in construction litigation.
