Vision

We strive to provide comprehensive and unbiased legal advisory services to closely held, emerging, and established businesses and individuals. 


Mission

Our mission is to develop long-term trusted relationships and become an established firm legal services firm serving families and businesses in North Central Washington State.


What We Bring to You

Besides having practiced law, we have been entrepreneurs and understand the regulatory, tax, and interpersonal challenges involved operating a business in a competitive environment.  This work experience rounds us and enables us to assist businesses, non-profits, and individuals understand a larger picture and understand (in the case of litigation) that damages, if any, could be different than that contemplated.  We believe in collaboration and view alternative dispute resolution (ADR)  as an efficient means--where available to resolve disputes.


Our prior work experience includes:

  • business valuations (I am a "qualified" business valuation appraiser under sec 170 of the IRC)

  • certified as a machinery and equipment  appraiser (in a non-legal role, I have provided appraisal services to law firms in connection with Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors (ABC), tax controversies, and bankruptcy)

  • a certified appraiser of manufactured houses (this is though another entity I manage)

  • a business broker and

  • an investment banker (prior to returning to WA, I worked with a Chicago and Cleveland-based middle market investment bank and focused on healthcare, life sciences, consumers and retail sectors; these were sell-side engagements; I had my Series 63 and 79), and

  • provide litigation support services through another company.   

Significantly, these experiences have provided an opportunity to develop a diverse network that enables us to serve clients by either bringing outside professionals into matters or referring matters.


In short we bring depth and understand the benefits of working in a collaborative manner to serve you.

​If you have any questions or just want to meet me to see if I am the right attorney for you, ... then call me at 509-679-3668 or send me an e-mail at RCastro@rcastrolaw.com.

Thank you for your consideration!
