Overview:

The insights needed for success in insurance litigation don’t come from theory or abstractions, they are the product of extensive trial practice and the crucible of complex and heavily contested disputes. For over four decades, clients have reaped the benefits of Senior Counsel Joe Castaldi’s deep and diverse experience as a seasoned civil litigator; experience that allows him to anticipate and parry adversarial attacks, identify and exploit weaknesses in his opponents’ arguments, and position his clients for optimal outcomes.

Joe’s practice areas include premises liability, motor vehicle accidents (auto, truck, and motorcycles), professional liability(real estate, attorney and cemetery/mortuary), products liability,and construction site accidents. He prides himself on producing exceptional work product and considers protection of his clients’ interests to be paramount in every case he handles.

Throughout his career, Joe has successfully litigated many catastrophic injury cases and obtained favorable results in a wide range of matters. These include a defense verdict and the recovery of approximately $300,000 in prevailing party fees and costs in a two-week binding arbitration real estate errors and omission action that sought $13 million from his clients, and obtaining an $800,000 contribution award in binding arbitration of an insurance contribution/subrogation claim.

A graduate of Loyola University who earned his J.D. from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, Joe enjoys spending time with his family when not working to advance his clients’ interests.
