Timothy B. Del Castillo

I practice employment law and represent employees and employers in federal and state courts, administrative hearings, arbitrations, mediations, and in direct negotiations. I love being an employment litigator because I enjoy helping people.

I started my career after law school as a law clerk to Williams H. Pryor Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.  After my clerkship, I practiced defense-side employment law for several years with two of the largest and highly-regarded international law firms in California: Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP.  I have represented numerous Fortune 500 companies in high-stakes employment cases involving wage-and-hour class actions, PAGA cases, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, misclassification, claims for unpaid wages, violations of the California Labor Code, wrongful termination, and other employment-related claims.  Unlike many other employment lawyers I've taken a class action and PAGA case all the way through trial, and won!

My time with these firms and representing large institutional clients provided me with unparalleled training and experience in navigating the often complex world of California and federal employment laws.  What I enjoy most about my now independent practice is helping individuals and smaller business owners, for whom employment-related legal issues often hit closer to home.  I've been commended for my responsiveness, devotion to my clients, and legal acumen.

I received my JD from Pepperdine University School of Law in 2010, magna cum laude, and my BA from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2001, summa cum laude.  During law school I was a Lead Articles Editor for the Pepperdine Law Review, served as a teaching assistant, and worked as a judicial extern for then Chief Judge Alex Kozinkski of Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  Between undergraduate and law school, I worked as a private school teacher, obtained a Master of Arts degree, and worked as a private school principal. 

I'm also involved in the local legal community.  I have served on the Executive Committee for the Labor and Employment Section of the Sacramento County Bar Association and on the Board for the Solo and Small Firm Division of the Sacramento County Bar Association.  In 2018, I was selected by a vote of my peers to be included in Sacramento Magazine's list of 2018 Top Lawyers in Sacramento.  In 2020, I was named a named a 2020 Northern California Rising Star by Super Lawyers, which recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state.

Outside of work I can be found spending time with my family and friends, and I'm actively involved in our Church.  I enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, and good local beer.
