“Issues related to providing and facilitating access to health care have always been important to me. I feel fortunate that my work involves both serving my clients and helping them meet such a fundamental human need.”

Aneliese Castro focuses her practice on transactional and regulatory matters. Her work with health care providers and advocacy for health care access predates her legal career. Her prior experience with a large health care provider in Southern California evolved into an academic, professional, and personal commitment to health care law and policy that she brings to her work at Hooper, Lundy & Bookman.

A former summer associate at the firm, Aneliese complements her legal knowledge with well-developed project management skills and a deep appreciation that attentive, proactive, and responsive client service is an indispensable aspect of effective counsel.

Aneliese earned her law degree from Stanford Law School, where she received the Judge Thelton E. Henderson Prize for Outstanding Performance and served as a Diversity Chair and Senior Editor on the Stanford Law Review. She was also a Fellow for the Stanford Center for Racial Justice and a Research Fellow for the Robert Crown Law Library.

After receiving her undergraduate degree with honors from Scripps College, Aneliese earned a Master of Public Health degree from UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, where she was a member of the Delta Omega Honor Society, a recipient of the Lee Thomassen Healthcare Finance Fellowship, and winner of the UCLA Sinaiko Business Plan Competition.
