About Me

I founded Costyn Law as a platform from which I could have the flexibility to represent and counsel a diverse client base, from small business to international corporations, with BigLaw expertise and sophistication but without the inefficiency and astronomical rates. I provide service to my clients in all aspects of business law, with a background specialty in employment, executive compensation, and high stakes litigation. I offer competitive rates and flexible options, such as flat fees for handling EEOC charges and Title VII litigation or drafting restrictive covenant and other employment agreements. Whatever your business' need or size may be, I'd be happy to offer a free consultation. See for contact details and for more information about my practice.

    Joe is a great litigator and will adequately represent a client's interests. I trust him to handle matters outside of my practice area and have made referrals to him in the past. My clients have not been disappointed.
