William Castleberry – Senior Associate Attorney
I am excited to be working as a Senior Associate Attorney at George McCranie Law firm. I’m from Valdosta and am married to Ava Castleberry. We have two daughters, ages 8 and 11. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Juris Doctor degree. Besides staying busy with my family, I have worked as an Assistant Public Defender, working on both misdemeanor and felony cases. In addition, I have worked in personal injury law and in other civil matters. However, I have always had a strong interest and desire to help people and I believe that is what has led me to primarily focus on criminal law. On a side note, I have played and taught guitar and 5-string banjo for many years. I have been fortunate enough to open for many national acts in the past. I look forward to using my training and experiences to give you the best assistance with your case.
