Attorney Gary Andrew Costales founded his South Florida labor and employment law firm, the Law Offices of Gary A. Costales, P.A., with the goal of providing legal services to individuals and businesses in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties. In the years since his firm's founding, his success has allowed for continuous expansion, and, as a result, the firm now has two office locations, ensuring that his services are easily accessible for those living and working in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Boca Raton who need assistance with the following:

Mr. Costales began practicing law in 1992 after earning his Juris Doctor from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and his admission to The Florida Bar. In the 20-plus years since his career began, attorney Costales has continued to distinguish himself as a leader in his practice area. As a result, The Florida Bar's Board of Legal Specialization and Education recognizes him as a board-certified specialist in the area of labor and employment law.

Prior to founding his private practice, Mr. Costales served as an attorney and an administrative judge for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. That experience, combined with the time he spent as a member of a leading Florida law firm where he represented management exclusively, has resulted in him having an extensive and varied experience. Today, Mr. Costales represents both employees and employers, and such versatility is beneficial to all of his clients.

Mr. Costales has had numerous jury trials in both federal and state courts and has consistently received highly favorable results after trial. His legal abilities and successful track record have resulted in his recognition as a leader among South Florida attorneys.
