Jeremy is an honorably-discharged U.S. Coast Guard veteran who served his country from 2007 to 2014 aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Munro (WHEC-724) homeported out of Kodiak, Alaska, and as a Marine Science Technician in Alameda, California and Paducah, Kentucky.
After becoming a parent while stationed in Paducah in 2013, Jeremy separated from the Coast Guard to return to the Bay Area to establish a relationship with his son. At that time, Jeremy’s primary goal became to attend law school in order to help those parents who care deeply about their children, but struggling to establish a relationship and custody of them. Jeremy’s passion quickly became pursuing a career in the legal profession allowing him to do that which he is so passionate about and contribute to keeping families together.
As a parent, Jeremy understands the stress and trauma associated with child custody and child support disputes. More importantly, Jeremy understands the heightened-degree of importance and sensitivity of these disputes to those parents who try so hard to be involved in the lives of their children, but for one reason or another are blocked from doing so and whose great and valiant efforts often go unnoticed.
Based on his experience at the Family Violence Law Center in Oakland, a non-profit organization dedicated to cases involving domestic violence, Jeremy understands and empathizes with those who have fear of leaving an abusive relationship.
Prior to opening his office, Jeremy worked for Roberta Laub-Rode of Amigos Immigration in San Rafael where he provided assistance to dozens of clients in preparing their Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) immigration matters in counties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
Throughout his childhood, Jeremy’s father, a Colombian native, only spoke to him in Spanish. Thanks to his father, extended family in Colombia, his multiple trips to and sixth-grade year in Arauca, Colombia, Jeremy is now bilingual and fluent in Spanish.
I was struggling to get me divorce case moving so I reached out to Jeremy Castro. He immediately got to work to push the other counsel. He was professional, diligent and did a great job! Jeremy has great follow up and communication skills. I highly recommend Jeremy
I reached out to Mr. Castro for assistance with an upcoming custody/visitation court case in Sonoma County. Jeremy responded to my initial inquiry quickly and his knowledgable and informative manner made me feel heard and understood, something that, in my experience, is quite rare. He was able to share his experiential knowledge with me in a kind and engaging way that made me feel empowered to take on the challenges ahead. Jeremy was also able to establish early on that he is a man of compassion and integrity. Those are traits I believe are incredibly valuable to anyone finding themselves facing the challenges and uncertainty of the court system. Mr. Castro is experienced and operates with integrity and compassion.
