About Castaneda Law Office
Upon receiving a master’s degree from Columbia University, and after having worked for a time in the banking industry, attorney Jose Castaneda went to study law at Pace University, in White Plains, N.Y. Once he graduated, he opened an office in Port Chester, N.Y., where he has served the community for over 25 years now. He is admitted to practice law in Connecticut and New York, as well as Federal Courts in the Second Circuit.
For nearly five years of his professional career Mr. Castaneda has served as a local judge in Port Chester. His position as a judge precludes him from taking local court cases within Westchester County. He can, however, take cases in City and County courts in Westchester, as well as all courts in any other counties.
Jose Castaneda, Jr. studied law at Quinnipiac University. He then went to work for the Public Defenderâ€™ Office for Broward County, Florida. In 2009 he was named a rising star within the super lawyers group for Florida. He has 13 years of experience in the fields of criminal defense, personal injury and accidents litigation, bankruptcy and matrimonial law. He is admitted to practice in Connecticut, New York and Florida.
Our offices in Port Chester are supported, among others, by Louis DĂaz, a paralegal expert in matters of bankruptcy, and Martha Nevarez, who handles operational matters.
