Kasha K. Castillo
Supervisory Attorney - Trial Team Leader

University of San Diego School of Law, J.D.
University of Portland, B.A.

Kasha Castillo first joined Federal Defenders in 2000. Prior to coming to the office, she worked in San Diego for a private firm doing criminal defense work at both the state and federal court levels. While still in law school, Kasha had learned of Federal Defenders' extensive trial practice training program. She ultimately decided to join our team because of her desire to become an excellent criminal defense trial attorney.

Since arriving, Kasha has been intensely involved in training and mentoring our new attorneys through her work on the "New Attorney Training Committee;" molding and inspiring new generations of public defenders through her work on the "Intern Committee;" and, most recently, keeping our CJA panel attorneys up-to-date on changes in federal law and procedure through her work on the "CJA Seminar Committee." Kasha's extensive committee work also regularly requires her to participate as a lecturer on a variety of topics, ranging from substantive criminal law to trial skills and practice.

Kasha became a Supervisory Attorney/Trial Team Leader in 2004. She now oversees a team of seven trial attorneys, assisting them in all aspects of their district court practice. Additionally, she continues to maintain a significant district court caseload that permits her to litigate a wide array of cases through the motions and trial stages.
