Maurice R. Costa
My name is Maurice Costa. I was born and raised right here in Miami Lakes, Florida. Upon completing high school, I enrolled at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. There I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1998. Upon graduation, I went to law school at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, FL. and obtained my Juris Doctor degree in 2000.
Throughout both my undergraduate and law school days, I worked as a Commercial Real Estate Salesperson at my fathers brokerage firm. This experience provided the backbone of my understanding of the real estate business. Upon graduating from law school, I went to work for a construction litigation firm. There I gained experience while concentrating in the practice areas of construction litigation and general real estate law. Approximately two years later, I joined my sister, Helen C. Costa Esq. and together we continued to provide compassionate legal services to the community while focusing on Real Estate matters, Family Law and Estate Planning.
