With a lifelong desire to help people and a family history of legal professionals, law was a natural choice for Mr. Castelli. As he tells it:
My grandmother was a legal secretary and I would go to the courthouse with her on Saturdays, which got me initially interested. And then I studied social work in college and I felt like my power to help people would be really limited. I thought that by becoming a personal injury lawyer I could influence people’s lives in a more direct and positive way.
Mr. Castelli became a law clerk after college and worked during the day while he attended the Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase School of Law at night. In 1981, he graduated with his Juris Doctorate and partnered with two other attorneys to form Major Castelli Goodman, where he worked until 2000, gaining the trial skills and legal acumen for which he has become well-known.
Today, Mr. Castelli runs a bustling private practice where he represents plaintiffs in cases involving car accidents, traumatic brain injuries, workers' compensation, dog bites, and more. Notable verdicts include $1.75 million for the family of a young man killed by a defective dump truck, which Mr. Castelli argued in front of the Ohio Supreme Court; $300,000 for a child who was severely burned by an unsafe radiator; and $1.2 million for a man who was killed in a motorcycle accident when his motorcycle skidded on defective temporary tape in the road. Using an unbeatable combination of meticulous preparation, litigation and mediation skills, and genuine concern for his clients’ well-being, Mr. Castelli has developed a reputation as a personal injury attorney people can trust.
It Mr. Castelli's genuine care for his clients that sets him apart from his competition. He ensures that his clients have full access to communicate with him directly, and he will meet with them wherever is convenient, whether that be in his office, in their homes, or at the hospital, even during evenings and weekends. As a further indication of his commitment to his clients, Mr. Castelli works on a contingency basis, charging a fee only when his clients recover enough to cover those costs. He has been recognized for his comprehensive and caring client service with a 10.0/10.0 “Superb” rating from Avvo.
Looking forward, Mr. Castelli intends to continue providing the superlative client care and representation for which he has become so well regarded. He also plans to develop his mediation practice, and recently took an advanced mediation strategy course at Harvard University.
