Alex De Castroverde is an attorney and the owner of De Castroverde Law Group, along with his brother, Orlando. Their father, Waldo De Castroverde, was born in Havana, Cuba, and was a paratrooper in the Bay of Pigs invasion. Waldo moved to Reno, Nevada, in 1978, along with his wife Vivian De Castroverde (also born in Cuba) and their four children. After attending law school at night—while he dealt blackjack during the day—Waldo became one of the first attorneys in Nevada to open a law office with the focus of representing the Hispanic Community.
In 2005, De Castroverde Law Group was formed as a branch of the Law Office of Waldo De Castroverde. The firm has grown from three attorneys to 20 attorneys and a total team of nearly 100 employees. The firm continues to focus on the representation of the Hispanic community in both Southern and Northern Nevada. The firm concentrates on personal injury, immigration, and criminal defense.
In 1995, Mr. De Castroverde received his undergraduate degree from UNR. He received his J.D. from Nova Southeastern University in 1999. Mr. De Castroverde is active in the Southern Nevada community, currently serving on the Board of Directors for Cristo Rey St. Viator Las Vegas College Preparatory and the Kenny Guinn Center for Policy Priorities. He is also on the Advisory Counsel for the Nevada Independent and serves as a committee member for the Las Vegas Bowl Committee.
Mr. De Castroverde is happily married to his wife Cathy of over 13 years, and they have three daughters.
