Daniel D’Costa has proven to be a great asset for me in representing my interests in a FINRA arbitration matter. I appreciated his thorough and competent way of handling my case, especially since, as a German, I am not familiar with the specific US regulations. He achieved a result that went far beyond my expectations. I highly recommend the D’Costa Law Firm to anyone in need of an excellent legal service.

Again, I would like to thanks Daniel D’Costa for all of his help, and in restoring my retirement funds to where they should have always been. I live on a disability income - my retirement funds will be crucial to me once I reach retirement age. I live a humble life and every dollar counts. D’Costa Law saved me!! I can't tell you how much of a burden you have taken off of my shoulders!

With Greatest Respect and Gratitude,

- John K.

Daniel, there are no words to really express my appreciation for you and your teams heroic and often exhausting efforts to represent me in this case. I trusted you from the start and knew you had my best interests as a priority. Thank you for the time you took away from your family many times to talk with me about strategy and issues. I will always recommend you and your team as the first call- and last stop when dealing with complicated issues. Thank you -thank you.

I had the opportunity to work with Daniel D’Costa, of D’Costa Law, P.C. I very much appreciated and respected Mr. D’Costa’s professional approach while working to recover an investment that had totally lost its value. Mr. D’Costa kept me apprised throughout the process and worked to recover a reasonable settlement on my behalf. It was because of Mr. D’Costa’s efforts that I was able to receive a portion of the worthless investment. In short, I was very pleased with Mr. D’Costa's approach, professionalism and most importantly, his results. I would recommend Mr. D’Costa and his firm.

My wife an I have been fortunate in life not to be in professional need of many lawyers. Those that we have used, I would give mixed reviews to.

In this case, Daniel D’Costa could not possibly have done a better job. They were immediately responsive to our phone calls and emails. They explained any issues we did not understand in layman's terms. They knew exactly what they were doing and executed their strategy with commitment, efficiency and complete transparency. Their collection and analysis of immense amounts of detail was impressive and necessary.

Best of all, they were successful in winning the case with a better outcome than I or any of my fellow plaintiff's expected. Just hire them.

With all the negativity today's society has directed towards the legal profession (myself included), I am compelled to offer up a robust approval and appreciation for the firm of D’Costa Law, P.C.

In addition to my recently receiving a very substantial award from a FINRA judgement through the efforts of the firm...I was totally impressed by their professionalism, their diligence, their intelligence and their humanity.

Going through the complex legal system is a daunting journey for individuals. Daniel made the process as efficient and effective as possible. While I believe our case was totally justified, I also believe that our eventual success was in a very large part attributed to the fact that our legal team far outperformed our opponents'.

Daniel managed to give the legal process (that I personally experienced) a good name.

I would, without any hesitation, recommend Daniel to friends and family.

Professionalism and Diligence

Thank you Daniel and all your colleagues for the professionalism and diligence in the final settlement of our securities fraud case. When a past law firm group turned our case down, you and your firm took on the case and we thank you for the great outcome. We would highly recommend your firm.

- Ronald T.

Thank you so much!

I will never forget how much you helped me by winning my case! I never thought I would see any money from my investment. I admire the way you fight for everyday people against big companies. Thank you so much!

Trustworthy and an expert in his field

I assisted my parents in hiring Daniel for a securities case in which my father was taken advantage of. Given the nature of the case, we were very cautious before hiring an attorney. We found Daniel to be extremely honest and upfront from the first phone call until the last. He was very patient and respectful when dealing with my aging parents. He kept us informed every step of the way and timelines, costs, etc. played out exactly as he said they would. Most impressive was Daniel’s knowledge, expertise and tenacity. He is a first class professional whom I would both recommend and hire again.

Nice Job!

Mr. D’Costa did a very nice job in my financial arbitration case. He was very professional, tough on opposition and thorough. He landed me a nice settlement, in fact I believe he "got blood out of a turnip".

Tactful, thorough and thoughtful

Daniel D’Costa carefully reviewed all documents and offered helpful and tactful advice. Daniel was incredibly responsive and very thorough. I feel confident signing anything that D’Costa Law P.C. has reviewed on my behalf.

Financial investment

Well, some others would not even take the case on a contingent basis. Daniel did and, thankfully, he prevailed.

I lost a substantial sum due to the mischaracterization of an investment. Daniel was successful with two suits filed against the organization resulting in settlements. Daniel could have dropped it at that but he pursued an additional suit when the company where he had previously worked was no longer interested in the case . It took a while but his persistence paid off for yet another settlement from the same organization.

Daniel might have retrieved all of my investment had I agreed to arbitration. But I could not chance the exposure. In short, three awards from the same failed investment. Thanks to Daniel’s persistence and ingenuity.

An attorney who cares

If you want an attorney that is easy to talk to and genuinely cares about your legal situation, contact Daniel D’Costa. He helped me settle a difficult contract dispute with my former employer recently. Thanks to Daniel’s help, I was able to get out of my personal services contract 13 months early and without a financial penalty. When you work with Daniel, he makes you feel as if you are his top priority. He will call you regularly to stay on top of the situation and submits all necessary legal documentation in a timely manner. His writing is excellent, his demeanor professional, and his work exceptional.

Top Notch Litigator-honest, open and out to win

I have recently had the pleasure of working with Daniel D’Costa on a multi-million dollar suit involving one of the largest US financial institutions. The case involved complex contract and credit terms surrounding our factoring agreements and Daniel quickly and competently obtained a firm grasp on the key issues.

He was extremely professional, appropriately aggressive and a joy to work with. I’d confidently refer D’Costa Law P.C. for commercial litigation.
