$1.5 Million Verdict
"Mr. da Costa represented me in a medical malpractice case that lasted for three years. From the onset, Mr. da Costa was very decisive about the case. He commanded the facts exceptionally well and with a great level of focus on details. During depositions, he was very aggressive and diligent and was able to elicit facts and admissions from the Defendant that proved extremely helpful at trial. Leading up to trial, and during trial, he continued to prepare meticulously and manage overall strategy of the case. He also gave me a lot of confidence during trial, and I was very well prepared when it came to testify at trial. During the entire trial, Mr. da Costa fought hard to convince the jury that a wrong had been committed by the Defendant that needed to be made right. With his trial skills and tenacity, the jury ultimately found in my favor and rendered a $1.5 million verdict. I am thankful that he represented me, and I strongly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a tenacious trial attorney."
