Global Industrial ServicesClient, 2018
"When I first met with Fabio Costante, I was very confused and basically didn’t understand what was happening to me or why. By the time I left his office, I felt like I’ve known Mr. Costante for a long time. He told me what would be an easy win and what may be a little more difficult. All the while reassuring me I had a case to fight for. In a few short months he won my case without even going through the court system and I received exactly what I wanted. He knows the labour laws to help people when they are wronged and I am truly grateful for his knowledge, ability and kindness. I recommend him 100%."
