Welcome to my law office’s web page. The Law Office of Hugo C. Castro L.L.C. is a boutique law firm fully committed to providing you the best legal service possible and would like to serve you in your legal needs.
I was born in Peru. I obtained the Attorney at Law degree from the University of Lima (Peru). I later obtained a Masters of Law degree (LL.M.) from the American University, Washington College of Law in Washington D.C.
The School of Law of George Mason University in Virginia determined that my legal education is equivalent to a Juris Doctor (J.D.) Degree in the United States.
I am an active member of the Maryland State Bar and the Virginia State Bar. I am also an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
I represent clients in immigration, criminal, DUI/DWI and traffic matters.
My immigration law practice covers all the United States and U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. My criminal, DUI/DWI and traffic law practice covers the states of Maryland and Virginia.
The representation usually starts after an initial consultation where I preliminary evaluate the case. At the initial consultation I will give you my honest legal opinion of your case. If I need more information to give you a legal opinion I will tell you so.
I am a very strong advocate. For that reason I always look for all the possible legal options to solve my clients’ legal issues. On the other hand I never give false expectations in order to be retained. In my experience I find that my clients appreciate that.
The initial consultation is normally done in my office. Telephone initial consultations are also available.
For immigration-related clients and depending on the complexity of the case the initial consultation is free of charge for up to 10 minutes over the phone. For initial consultations up to 30 minutes at the office the fee is $80, and for initial consultations up to one hour the fee is $160. There is also the possibility to arrange telephonic paid initial consultations. For criminal, DUI/DWI and traffic-related clients the initial consultation is free of charge for up to 30 minutes. For initial consultations up to one hour the fee is $160. Any consultation fee for all kind of cases is subtracted from the legal fees. Therefore there is no cost of initial consultation if I am retained.
My legal fees are very reasonable and competitive. They will be discussed in detail during the initial consultation. I may offer payment plans depending on the nature of the case. The legal fees may be paid in cash, checks, money orders and credit cards.
At the Law Office of Hugo C. Castro you will receive prompt, diligent, quality cost-effective legal services. I promptly respond inquiries from my clients. That is my mission statements and my pledge to you. You are the reason why I am in business.
Please feel free to navigate through my law office’s web site and thank you for visiting it. I hope that you find useful information here.
I look forward very much to having the privilege to serve you.
