Greg Castano Jr. enjoys solving business problems.

He uses his training and experience to create and implement cost-effective and practical solutions to the challenges that businesses and government face every day. These range from routine contract, compliance or employment issues to comprehensive, complex and cutting-edge disputes.

Whether it’s through creative drafting or negotiating or identifying the winning litigation strategy, Greg has a proven track record of success for his clients. While always hopeful that problems can be amicably and economically resolved, his training and experience as an assistant prosecutor give him a real world insight as to how legal issues actually unfold before juries.
