Exceptional Legal Support
I had the privilege of working with Joseph Costello during my divorce proceedings, and I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism, expertise, and compassion. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt reassured and supported throughout the entire process. Joseph Costello went above and beyond to ensure that I understood every step of the legal proceedings. He patiently answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns I had, making sure I felt empowered and informed at all times. One aspect that truly stood out to me was Joe Costello's dedication to my case. He consistently went out of his way to gather evidence, provide sound legal advice, and negotiate on my behalf. His attention to detail and strategic approach significantly contributed to a favorable outcome. Moreover, Joseph Costello showed genuine empathy and understanding during a challenging time in my life. He listened attentively to my concerns, offered emotional support, and guided me with sensitivity and care. Thanks to Joseph Costello's expertise and commitment, I was able to navigate the divorce process with confidence and achieve a resolution that was fair and equitable. I highly recommend Joseph Costello to anyone seeking legal representation for family law matters. He is not just a lawyer but also a trusted advocate and ally. Thank you, Joseph Costello, for your exceptional service and unwavering support throughout this journey.

Excellent
I'm truly thankful for all of Joe's help through my divorce. He consistently responded promptly to all of my questions and concerns, and offered honest and straightforward advice that I could trust. I was impressed with his delivery at mediation and deposition and his ability to clearly and effectively articulate the issues. He focused on the issues that were most important to me and navigated my case with integrity and professionalism. Every step of the process confirmed for me that I chose the right attorney (I interviewed 10+ prior to filing), and I would, and will, highly recommend him to anyone.

The 2 continent Divorce
Joe had represented a friend of mine before i hired him. I had a short window to hire an attorney and file documents. When i reached out to Joe, I had already made up my mind with another attorney. I was in Korea at the time, and my wife had ran off with my child from Florida to Virginia. It was a mess of a situation. Joe was everything I needed for court. He was my stable mind, my battle buddy down in the trenches, and my wall to bounce laws off of. Joe navigated law that isn't typical in Broward County. He is everything you will want representing you. The professionalism he brought to court was astounding compared to the disarray the other side displayed. If i had to do it all over again, I would still pick Joe every time. I value his commitment to my family, his empathy to me, and his friendship he shares pushing past this case. If you are ever in doubt, your back is against the wall, and you have no where to turn, call Joe. He will get you out of that dark place. He has served My friend, my sister, and myself well in our divorces and criminal court.

Outstanding !!!!!!!
Where do I start ? I am grateful and thankful to have Joseph Costello as my attorney. The divorce journey was very stressful process the unkown outcome. I will never wish upon on anyone going through the process. I never would thought it happened to me. I had gone through intensive interviews with several attorneys and most of them are pretty robotic in my opinion. When I met Joe, I explained my situation which my case are very complicated he was very patient to listen. We had gone through several mediations with no result at last we were set for trial. Joe was very competent on what he does and he always has his clients at the best interest at all time. I couldn’t express my gratitude appreciation. Thank you Joe for all you do Lac Duong

Outstanding Character and Integrity! Exceeded Expectations!
The moment I spoke with Joe on the phone regarding my divorce case, I knew that I could trust my family's outcome in his hands. Joe is a man of character and integrity! He was professional, on time, and well prepared. Joe held my hand through the process with reassuring compassion and always managed my expectations. There was never a time where I felt alone, or blindsided. I am forever thankful for his guidance, wisdom, and support. I received more than I expected; most of all I had peace through the process. I give him 10 stars!

I am sure that many can say, my case was the most difficult case Joe worked. I am certain that mine was for him. Only because there was absolutely no negotiations with the other side. Joe had to fight every step of the way. The other side did not negotiate, only unreasonable demands and Joe was always Professional, prepared,Skillful, and extremely knowledgeable with the law. There are no words that can truly review what Joe did for me and my Children who are currently living with me now, all thanks to my Friend Joe. Nobody Wins in a divorce but Joe certainly will get you the best outcome.

Amazing and Personable
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! I was highly recommended to Joe when a very unfortunate situation came up. I now know why he was so highly recommended. Every interaction we had was very honest and professional, as well as personable. I never felt that I made the wrong decision. He made sure I understood everything clearly before moving forward, as well as gave me sound legal advice to help make those decisions. I would recommend his services to anybody that I know who is in need of a top notch attorney and individual!

Superb
To say that divorce is unpleasant is a huge understatement. But Joe approached the process with such professionalism, such empathy and knowledge, that he made a very painful part of my life as bearable as possible. An ethical, honest and straight-shooting attorney, I could not possibly recommend him higher.

Its not easy getting a divorce
Its not easy separating from a marriage especially when young children are involved. When I meet Joe he asked me "what do I want" and I replied "as much time possible with my kids and my house ". three month's later I had applicable time with my kids and my house. its not easy getting a divorce but Joe makes it simple.

I hired Joe and I’m grateful I did. He did an excellent job explaining everything to me along the way and breaking down the process so I was able to gauge my options very clearly. He was very patient and understanding with me and my situation. He was also very efficient and responsive whenever I needed anything or had any questions. I would definitely recommend.

Super kind, and responsive, and honest
I hired Joe after I thought I could represent myself in my divorce in Palm Beach County, when I realized it was too stressful for myself to handle, I hired him for a great price and he got to work immediately. Whenever I contacted him, he would respond within the hour, and answered any and all of my questions making sure I was in the loop of my entire divorce process. I would recommend him to everybody. Very honest and realistic, and always was very very kind to me.

Best Lawyer I ever hired!!!
I hired Joe when I was going through a nasty custody battle with my child's father. Joe assured me that he had things handled and that everything would work out in the best interested of the child. Not only do my ex and I co-parent amazing ( mainly because of Joe) but he took all the stress out of a situation that could have been chaotic. I would recommend Joe to anyone! He is extremely attentive and well spoken. He always came to court prepared and ready to go. Most importantly he is ALWAYS honest and forthcoming with his clients.
