4/7/2018 I was in a bicycle accident in which I was hit by a car on Hwy. 9 between Saratoga and Los Gatos in October of 2014. I fractured three vertebrates and had a brain concussion. I was transported by the medics to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center where I was hospitalized for 2 weeks. I was in neck and body brace for three months. Though my injuries were severe and recovery traumatic I was fortunate in that I recovered completely without any long term disability. In retrospect I am very glad that I contacted James Sarrail of Sarrail, Castillo and Hall in the second week of hospitalization. Jim visited me in the hospital. Though we talked some about the accident Jim emphasized that I not worry about the "case" but focus on therapy and recovery. I was given the green light by the doctors by January end 2015 after which I had to leave the country for three months on a teaching commitment. My dialog with Jim regarding the accident started in May, 2015. The best part of my experience with Jim and his law firm was that they are very meticulous and thorough and I did not have to worry about any details. They drove the time schedule and the agenda. I just had to show up for the meetings they organized. I was surprised when Jim brought the suit against not only the insurance company but also the City and the State of California. At times I would be overwhelmed by the presence of three to four attorneys for the opposition. Unlike me Jim was never phased and always there to reassure and encourage me. Over two years there were many depositions including a non binding mediation (which did not resolve the case). I was always impressed that Jim and his associates were consistently much better prepared than the opposition. As the mediation was unsuccessful with no offer from the defending parties the next step was to go to trail. On my request we decided not to go on trail. I do not like lawsuits and at this time I was not very optimistic. Over the next few months behind the scene Jim worked his "magic", negotiated with the attorneys from the three parties and resulted in an offer. I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with the settlement. I am very happy that engaged Jim Sarrail to represent me. I endorse Sarrail Castillo and Hall as highly professional, extremely organized, ethical and astute negotiators

Excellent Legal Services for Corporations and Business Owners; Highly Recommend
In any business setting, there can be an overwhelming amount of time that one can spend on new-hire contracts and forms, disciplinary actions, and the termination or suspension of certain employees when they are insubordinate. And sometimes when you own a small enterprise, having to deal with these particular day-to-day operations is especially important, which is why I need to make sure I have the proper support of a legal team. I retained the legal services of Sarrail Castillo & Hall to ensure that my company has the proper guidance and counseling of employees at my company, since I do not have a full-time in-house HR department. On a late afternoon, I had contacted Sarrail Castillo & Hall to ask a number of questions about the proper and legal methods of terminating an employee. A few days later, I went into George Sarrail’s office and met with he and his fellow naming partner at his practice, Monica Castillo. I first wanted to show George and Monica my new-hire contract that I have asked all employees to sign on their first day of work at my company. I asked for any feedback and changes that I should include or exclude and George spent some time explaining areas that I need to revise and quickly highlighted the changes that I should make. After a review of my new-hire contracts, we then proceeded to discuss my next matter; the termination of one of my employee and the legalities of what I should say, cannot say, etc.. We decided to work on a practice-round of how I would approach the situation and they coached me extremely well on what to say and how to both begin and end the meeting when I terminate my employee. This was indeed very important to me as a small business owner because it is very nerve-wracking when dealing with HR policies and issues. I wanted to be both well-versed and knowledgeable, especially if I have to deal with another scenario like this again. I am extremely thankful for the help that both George and Monica had assisted me with and I will continue to seek their guidance as my company continues to evolve and develop. I highly recommend Sarrail Castillo & Hall for their legal services.
