Joining Castellanos & Associates, APLC

In 2000, Ms Castellanos joined Castellanos & Associates, APLC alongside her husband and managing partner, Edwin J. Castellanos. Sally is a named shareholder in the law firm of Castellanos & Associates, APLC. Sally actively manages all aspects of the firm’s on-line marketing and web presence. In addition, as a result of her own experience with infertility, after the birth of her two daughters, Ms. Castellanos began turning her focus in law practice to adoption and family formation law.

Today, Sally practices almost exclusively in the area of adoption, stepparent adoption, independent adoption, and adult adoption. While she devotes much of her time to raising two young daughters, she brings a unique and deeply personal perspective to our firm. Sally understands the unique challenges faced by those families exploring the process of adoption and other family building options and she limits her practice so she can provide couples the respect and attention they deserve while dealing with sensitive family formation issues.

Sally has also performed pro bono work through Public Counsel’s Adoption Project. Currently, Ms. Castellanos focuses her practice to help families dealing with infertility challenges by giving them the support and respect they need on their journey towards building a family.

Sally Castellanos practices exclusively in the area of adoption and family formation law and will meet with prospective adoptive parents by appointment. Weekend appointments may be arranged in advance. Ms. Castellanos is a member of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
