Kelly Castor, Esq.
“Everything I do is for my clients. They are real people going through real life situations and they need help.”
As an immigrant to the United States, I went through the legal process of immigration along with my parents at the age of eight – we attended court and I was immediately attracted to the poise and style of the attorneys amidst the chaos of immigration court.
Later, at age 12, I was detained by immigration and separated from my mother in Puerto Rico on a return trip to the United States from Martinique. I was interrogated by immigration officers who threatened to return me to France, my birthplace, without my parents if I did not cooperate.
At such a young age, having experienced the feeling of helplessness without legal guidance, and having recalled my earlier positive impression of attorneys helping others, I devoted myself to pursuing a legal career, so as to represent people who needed a compassionate voice and sound legal guidance through unfamiliar and sometimes life-changing circumstances.
Soon after becoming a lawyer, I sought to join an intimate sized law firm that would provide the opportunity to concentrate on partnering closely with clients. For fourteen years I remained with that firm, gaining valuable legal experience and knowledge that allowed me to flourish in a multidisciplinary legal practice.
In late August 2022, Castor Law LLC was opened to the public prepared to provide "Excellence in Service, Professionalism, with Proven Results."
I am passionate about forming strong partnerships with my clients to:
Advocate on their behalf and in their best interests;
Make them feel comfortable to contact or meet with me to discuss their case;
Clearly understand their situation and goals;
Consistently provide sound legal counsel;
Pursue optimal legal remedies that provide them with satisfaction or amelioration of their pain and suffering;
Keep them informed regarding all legal procedures and what to expect during the course of action to be pursued.
