In the Words of a Client
Anton Castro Law Form has done a phenomenal job in representing me in my divorce case. My personal attorney-Brad, was there at all times to explain all steps and help guide me through the legal arena. He is a very calming and patient attorney who was very honest about what my expectations were. Brad knew my case and knew my details so when I called him he could put together scenarios or relate what needed to be taken care of immediately. The office staff is very friendly, efficient, and discreet. My divorce was processed quickly and saved me money by giving me oPtions and letting me see the big picture. I also was very impressed with the mediator they chose and how she handled our mediation. I had heard from other divorced people that it was a waste of time but ours went smoothly and rather painlessly. A big thank you again to Brad McDonald and the entire Anton Castro Law office for making one of the hardest emotional life transitions go the smoothest.
Going through a tough time in your marriage can be so scary however, Mr. Brad McDonald had my best interest at heart and gave me honest advice and opinions, rapid responses, and did not make me feel pressured for a second. He gave me all my options and did not push me one way or another instead was there if I had a question about a process, paper work, etc. He allowed me to make my decision based on all information that was true to the law (which gave me so much comfort for someone to break it down). Thank God my husband and I have decided to work it out and he was so happy and supportive. He did not make me feel bad, instead wished me the best. Mrs. Christina Anton Garcia, was there to guide me in the right direction (Brad) and shown compassion and understanding and when I told her we decided to reconcile, she really supported me and my decision. Brad and Christina are part the story in the restoration of my marriage. I’m forever grateful for you guys. You are heaven sent! **Eisy**
Christina and Brad are awesome! Took great care of me during my case. Brought light to a tiresome situation. Would choose them again!
