As managing partner for D'Costa Law, P.C., a leading litigation law firm specializing in securities fraud and no-fault, Daniel D’Costa specializes in stock loss recovery, no-fault and personal injury law. As an expert in the areas of FINRA and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and as one of but a few attorneys who concentrate on stock broker misconduct, Daniel has assisted his clients in obtaining the highest recovery possible—and for him, it’s personal. When Daniel’s family endured significant financial loss from broker misconduct and financial manipulation, he chose to leave the comfort of a large firm to dedicate his life to helping other investors who have suffered the same injustice. To him, these clients are like family.
Daniel opened the firm two years ago in Hicksville, New York, after working as an attorney for an AM100 and top-ranked law firm, Shearman & Sterling, and global behemoth BNP Paribas. He wields the valuable insight and knowledge gained from representing hedge funds, banks, and other financial institutions to now serve clients on the other side of the trade who have been harmed by fraud, churning, excessive trading, over-concentration, and other types of broker misconduct.
Whether assisting clients with obtaining recoveries resulting from stockbroker wrongdoing or representing clients in no-fault or personal injury cases, Daniel and his firm do so with a singular mission—to protect clients and their families. “I go after the brokers who have committed these violations and hurt my clients as a result of their misconduct, misrepresentation, or misuse of their money,” Daniel explains. As an expert in securities law, financial law, and derivatives law with experience in New York State and U.S. Federal Courts, Daniel ushers clients from the initial pleadings stage through their FINRA arbitration hearings.
In the area of no-fault or personal injury cases, Daniel represents both accident victims and medical service providers, such as doctors. He assists them in collecting their rightful payments from insurance companies and third parties, including denied and outstanding no-fault and workers’ compensation claims.
Daniel began his legal career in 2010 as a paralegal and law clerk with a New York firm while pursuing his bachelor’s degree in business with a concentration in legal studies and finance from Hofstra University, where he graduated with honors. He served as an intern for Judge Marcy Friedman in the New York State Commercial Division while working toward his doctor of law degree from Brooklyn Law School in 2015. Before joining BNP Paribas, Daniel worked as an ISDA negotiator for Quadrangle Consulting, where he focused on trading agreement negotiations, and was also legal extern at NYC Transit Authority. He is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association.
