LGBT Law

The Law Offices of George Castrataro, P.A.

At The Law Offices of George Castrataro, P.A., we recognize that LGBT individuals face their own plethora of legal issues, and we offer comprehensive representation to protect their rights.

A History Of Advocacy

George Castrataro has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to individual rights, with a strong focus on Florida's gay, lesbian and transgender residents. While working as a supervising attorney at Legal Aid of Broward County, he assisted these clients with matters ranging from estate planning to HIV law and human rights.

When Mr. Castrataro entered private practice, he realized that many members of Florida's GLBTQ community did not have access to legal services aimed at meeting the specific challenges that they face.

Our practice encompasses nearly every part of our clients' lives, including:

  • Family law — We help Florida's gay, lesbian and transgender couples reach legal solutions to matters, including same sex divorce, domestic partnerships, separation and partition, child custody and adoption.
  • Estate planning — State laws regarding estate planning and probate contain benefits for married couples that same-sex couples cannot enjoy. Our lawyers can help you draft an estate plan that protects you and your family.
  • Bankruptcy — Many married couples filing for bankruptcy do so jointly, without legal marriage, it can be difficult for a same-sex household. We help these families file bankruptcy petitions that effectively communicate their family and financial situations while pursuing a fresh start.
  • Employment — We represent people who have faced discrimination at work, including LGBT employees. While Florida does not have a specific law prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination, you do have options if you are being treated unfairly at work. We can help.
  • General litigation — if you need assistance resolving a dispute or are facing legal action, we can help you develop a strategy to resolve your issue and represent you throughout the course of your case.
