The Law Offices of Robles & Castles is primarily a litigation firm, but we also counsel clients with respect to contract drafting, negotiation and performance.

Our experience in litigating disputes gives us a strong advantage when counseling clients since we are knowledgeable about the issues that typically lead to disputes. This allows us to advise clients so that they can avoid or minimize such issues.

Litigation is our primary focus and we are keenly aware of the expense and uncertainty of taking a case to trial or arbitration.  We therefore encourage clients to use mediation and other alternative dispute resolution procedures before spending substantial monies on litigation. We have excellent working relationships with mediators who are among the best in the State of California. We also have longstanding relationships with many of the top experts who practice in the substantive areas that are often at issue in the matters we handle. Through these relationships, we have developed a reputation for achieving prompt and equitable settlement that few other firms can match.

Our experience allows us to evaluate cases early without having to depose every witness or review every document. This ability to provide accurate, early evaluations coupled with the reputation that we enjoy with mediators, experts and other counsel, affords our clients the opportunity to resolve disputes in a prompt and efficient manner.

On those occasions when a negotiated resolution is not possible, we collaborate with our clients to develop strategies and keep them fully advised about the risks and costs so that well informed decisions can be made at every step of the process. With over 50 claims being tried to verdict, or to final arbitration award, we pride ourselves on our abilities and record.
