Retired LAPD Detective
30 Years of Service
Decorated veteran Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detective, Moses Castillo, is retiring from the force after nearly 30 years of service. He will begin a new chapter of his career later this month as chief investigator for the Dordulian Law Group personal injury firm in Glendale, California. Castillo’s experience includes years of investigating and closing sex crime cases, and he will be assisting the Dordulian Law Group accordingly given the surge in lawsuits filed following the passage of AB218 in January.

Always remember, as Moses clarifies, you — the survivor — are never at fault. We are here as your advocates, to fight for justice on your behalf. We will not stop until justice is served.
Fueled and Motivated by Empathy for Survivors of Sexual Abuse.
Dordulian Law Group’s Chief Investigator, Detective Moses Castillo, explains how his empathy for survivors of sexual abuse motivates him to obtain justice and ensure the abusers face the harshest criminal penalty under the law.
Moses explains how every case requires 100% focus and effort, and that each case is treated accordingly. Additionally, after justice is obtained on behalf of survivors, Moses explains how he often establishes an ongoing relationship with the survivors he has helped.
Moses notes that, “We are going to walk with you through this process, to not only allow you to heal, but to secure a deserved financial settlement for your pain and suffering. That is the ultimate goal.”
