Attorney Spotlight: Anthony Kastenek

Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is proud to announce, Anthony Kastenek as this month’s spotlight attorney! Anthony joined the HPI legal team in August 2017 and has already made successful strides and efforts in Santa Barbara County. Anthony graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara in just three years and during his undergraduate education, he knew he wanted to become an attorney. Anthony enrolled at Western State University College of Law in Fullerton, California. To gain hands-on experience, Anthony worked as a law clerk for a mid-sized Irvine law firm. Subsequently obtaining his Juris Doctorate in 2008, Anthony began his own legal practice in 2009. After a strong eight years of building his own practice, Anthony was determined to solely practice personal injury litigation. Now as one of the leading litigating attorneys in Santa Barbara, we are glad to have Anthony on board.
