Prior to moving to the valley of the sun to complete his education, attorney Oscar Castañeda grew up in the border town of Nogales, Arizona. While growing up, Oscar witnessed, first hand, people struggle with criminal and immigration issues. In fact, it was his desire to provide quality service and guidance to those confronted such issues which drove his decision to devote his life’s work to the practice of law.
While attending law school at Arizona State University, Oscar served as a law clerk for a prominent Phoenix-area criminal defense attorney. During that time, Oscar gained a tremendous amount of experience, learning the criminal court system and sharpening his legal skills. Oscar also spent time working at an immigration law office, where, early on in his career, he had the unique ability to learn the dynamic between the two areas of law.
