Who Gets Your Property When You Pass Away?

The attorneys at Castro Law can create an Estate Plan that anticipates and arranges for the management and transfer of your assets during, and after your life. It may include a living trust, a will, advanced health care directive or...

Trusts: Are you a Trustee? Do you know your duties?

Being a trustee is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Understanding the requirements and responsibilities of this role is vital.

The IRS called! They say I owe money!

Let’s get straight to the point…it is a SCAM. The IRS will NEVER, out of the blue, make contact with you over the phone. Initial contact will ALWAYS be official correspondence via US Mail - NEVER an email, NEVER a fax. Many of our clients have told us they have been threatened with legal action, told that they owe the IRS money that must be paid immediately, or that they are entitled to big refunds. One Castro Law client received 3 messages: each more threatening than the last, and claiming that the client was being prosecuted for tax evasion. The message said...
