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 also provide strategic and preventative advice and counseling to employers and executives.

I started my legal career as a law clerk to Williams H. Pryor Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, after which I practiced 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 discrimination, harassment, retaliation, misclassification, claims for unpaid wages, violations of the California Labor Code, wrongful termination, and many other employment-related claims.  I have experience representing client's interests in trials, appeals, arbitrations, and mediations. 

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, magna cum laude, and my BA from Franciscan University of Steubenville, summa cum laude.  During law school I was a Lead Articles Editor for the Pepperdine Law Review, served as a teaching assistant, and externed for Chief Judge Alex Kozinkski of Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  Before attending law school, I worked as a private school teacher and principal. 

I have served on the Executive Committee for the Labor and Employment Section of the Sacramento County Bar Association.  I currently serve 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.

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 craft beer.
