John Castro expertly guided me through the toughest challenge of my life. Earlier this year, a deeply troubled person I made the mistake of befriending fabricated serious felony accusations against me, both with the police and in a civil case.
For whatever twisted motive, the accuser wanted to inflict maximum damage as quickly as possible and even hired a seasoned attorney and a state-funded advocate to pressure the police to make an early arrest and to convince the judge to prematurely rule on the civil case. Either scenario would have cost me my job. Luckily, I had the three most important things on my side: the truth, faith and John.
Thanks to John’s encyclopedic legal knowledge and his invaluable experience as a former prosecutor, he helped avoid an arrest and defered the ruling on the civil case until the criminal investigation was complete. I can’t emphasize enough that an arrest alone would have cost me my job. This was critical.
6 months after the initial accusations, indisputable forensic and video evidence fully exonerated me. The detective filed the case as unfounded.
Yet despite the overwhelming evidence, the accuser insisted on pursuing the civil case. I guess it was important to keep the lie going, and apparently not too much evidence is needed to convince a judge to rule against someone in a civil case.. There was a trial. John was brilliant. The ruling was in our favor. Thank you John Castro.
