Edwin Castellanos

Managing Partner

EdwinEdwin Castellanos is a knowledgeable divorce lawyer in Los Angeles, California, and he has exclusively practiced divorce and family law for over 17 years. He is the managing partner of Castellanos & Associates, APLC. Edwin's practice includes but is not limited to: complex divorce litigation; child custody matters; child relocation issues (also known as "move away" cases); child and spousal support issues; child support services department matters; driver's license suspension for non-payment of child support; post-judgment modifications; paternity; domestic violence; and guardianship cases.

Education & Experience

One of the biggest advantages to Edwin's representation is his early education and experience in business and accounting. Edwin Castellanos received his Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in accounting from New York University's prominent Stern School of Business. After working in New York City's financial district, Edwin went on to attend Boston University School of Law. In 1995, Edwin earned his J.D. Degree from Boston University School of Law.

Throughout Edwin's years of experience in divorce matters he has learned that going through a divorce can lead to serious financial ruin if you depend upon an advisor with little to no knowledge of the financial implications of your divorce. This is especially the case when you depend upon legal document providers or other non-attorneys to handle your divorce when there are too many complex issues to resolve. Edwin's clients benefit tremendously from his combined years of experience in complex divorce matters and his early educational and work-related experiences in finance.

Values & Upbringing

Edwin embodies the values of knowledge, professionalism and experience; yet, Edwin remains approachable to his clients and all members of the community, professional and non-professional alike. His background is a reflection of the community he serves and an example of the same hard work and dedication he throws into his cases each day.

Edwin was born in Quito, Ecuador. Before the age of 4, Edwin moved with his family to the United States and was brought up by hard working Ecuadorian parents in Brooklyn, a borough of New York City. Edwin was raised in a predominately working class community situated between Flatbush Avenue and Borough Park. He lived in a tough urban environment but was taught the importance of hard work and education from an early age.

Spanish-Speaking Divorce & Family Lawyer

One of the unique aspects of Edwin's practice is his ability to share his knowledge and experience with residents from Latino communities around Southern California. As you might imagine, being raised in a traditional Latino family, Edwin was taught to speak Spanish fluently at home while speaking English in school. Edwin is one of a handful of Spanish-speaking Latino lawyers in Los Angeles practicing exclusively in divorce and family law who can assist Latinos with divorce and family law issues in their native Spanish language.

When you walk through the doors of our law firm, we believe you will recognize Edwin as a professional and highly effective Los Angeles divorce and family law attorney who remains extraordinarily accessible to the community he serves. Edwin is probably one of the most recognizable and respected faces among Los Angeles area judges and lawyers in downtown Los Angeles family court.

Edwin is proud to call Southern California his home, where he lives with his wife and fellow attorney, Sally Vazquez-Castellanos, and their two young daughters.
