Testimonials

What our clients are saying.

If I could give David Costa more than 5 stars I would. The moment that I called him in 2015, I knew right away that he was the right person to represent my son. He gave my son a list of things to do to help his case. David replied to every email that I sent to him and answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same questions. He even talked to my son when he thought my son was not doing enough to get the best possible outcome. We are pleased with the outcome of the case. Excellent lawyer! Highly recommended! Definitely Toronto’s Top Lawyer!

David Costa was my brother’s defense lawyer on a first degree murder charge. I called the lawyer the moment my brother was arrested. There was absolutely no physical evidence against my brother. There were alibi witnesses and coroner evidence that he could not have killed the victim. And Mr. Costa did everything we asked him to do as our lawyer. He called the alibi witnesses, he made sure all evidences are preserved, he hired a PI and did an investigation of his own. He did everything he could to save my brother from jail. Our whole family is grateful to David Costa for his knowledge, experience, support and strong motivation. David is a very good man.

The charges I had were dismissed, however along the way I spoke to a couple lawyers. I stuck with David because I could tell he had a level of knowledge others didn’t. He also was always very quick to get back to me. If I ever need a lawyer in the future it will be David for sure and I also recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

The best adoption lawyer in Toronto! David Costa walked us through everything, and was with us every second on the big day! We did not have many face to face meetings, as he communicates very well via email. This is definitely a lawyer who takes his time to do it correctly. We honestly can’t thank him enough!
