Los Angeles Divorce Attorneys

Experienced Family Law Practice In Los Angeles

If you assemble the right team to help you, it's possible to leave behind years of fighting, abuse or other forms of misery that can produce an unhappy marriage. Castellanos & Associates, APLC handles all types of divorce, and family law matters, including child custody and visitations, child support, and legal guardianship.

Professional, High-Quality, Affordable Family Law Representation in California

At Castellanos & Associates, APLC, our family lawyers provide affordable legal representation to clients from all walks of life. We've handled a broad-range of cases for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including government officials with sensitive national security concerns, local law enforcement, professional athletes, domestic partners, entertainment executives, and blue-collar workers. We treat all clients with professionalism and respect, and we take the time to understand the individual needs of all of our clients. Our legal team knows that custody disputes, and similar matters can be an unpleasant experience for our clients and can severely impact the family. At our firm, we approach each family law matter with sensitivity and compassion.

Our primary focus is to resolve cases in our client’s favor without having to pursue lengthy litigation that will burden your family with unnecessary costs. In many cases, a satisfactory resolution can be found between spouses without the trouble and expense of drawn out litigation. In some cases, litigation will be necessary and our lawyers have no reservations about standing up for your rights in court. We firmly believe in protecting your interests by keeping you informed of what’s happening in your case and explaining the legal process to you.

In over two decades of providing legal help to families in need, we’ve built a professional, high-quality law firm that is affordable. When you look for help from a lawyer we know one of your biggest concerns is what financial impact divorce will have on your life. If children are involved, you're probably concerned about the emotional and financial impact it will have on the children.

At Castellanos & Associates, APLC, all prospective clients get a free initial consultation and can take advantage of our client-centered billing structure. Unlike other law firms, our attorneys do not bill clients for every phone call, photocopy, fax, or electronic communication. In some cases, we offer low initial fees, payment plans, and fixed or flat rate legal services. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the possibility of limited scope representation to reduce legal fees and we may be able to offer fixed or flat fees for some legal matters such as a marital dissolution proceeding that is uncontested. At our firm, we want you to know that we are working hard to provide quality representation at a reasonable price.

Need a Spanish-Speaking Family Lawyer?

We are proud to provide knowledgeable, competent, and affordable legal representation to families needing help from a lawyer who can speak Spanish fluently. Being able to communicate with your family law attorney is essential, and any language barrier poses a unique problem in the attorney-client relationship. Not only do we have support staff that speaks Spanish, but our lead attorney Edwin Castellanos speaks Spanish fluently. If you are a Spanish-speaking client, you will have confidence knowing your attorney can help you understand complex legal issues in your case, especially when there are difficult financial and/or child custody matters to consider.

Effective Settlement Through Mediation or Litigation

Our firm is composed of dedicated professionals who work with clients to identify all of your options with the intent to reduce costs and litigation risk.
