Austin divorce attorney Miguel CastilloAustin divorce attorney Miguel Castillo strongly believes his military background has prepared him for a career in practicing family law.

“I have literally been to war, so fighting for you will not be an issue,” Mr. Castillo said. “I’ve learned the value of working with a team and building a relationship with the people I work with, which will include you if you decide to hire us.”

Mr. Castillo remains rational, but supportive in an area of law with a very intense emotional aspect to it.
