Design professionals use different skills sets at different phases of a project. Whether litigating a case, or negotiating a deal, Castell uses his broad skill set to meet his client’s objectives.

An advocate at heart, the bulk of Castell’s practice is derived from litigation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution. Depending on the size and stage of the dispute, Castell draws on different aspects of his experience developed from his time working at the Public Defender’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office, serving his clients in private practice, and clerking for the Honorable Elizabeth C. Wingo and the Honorable Yvonne M. Williams of the District of Columbia Superior Court. Whether developing a strategic plan for the litigation, engaging in complicated discovery issues, or taking a case to trial, Castell understands the importance of preparation in order to advance his client’s objectives.

When advising clients on corporate transactional matters, Castell knows the importance of understanding a client’s business. This is where Castell’s undergraduate degree in Accounting and his past experience working for a construction management firm come into play. Castell prides himself on helping his clients achieve their goals by asking the right questions up front, in order to develop documents that address his clients’ concerns and set them up for success.
