Why Costello & Mains?
Representing Employees, Students and Those Who Have Been Injured
The New Jersey law practice of Costello & Mains, LLC, is built on giving people like you a voice in the legal system. In the employment field, we represent people who have endured sexual harassment, job discrimination, unpaid wages and overtime, whistleblower retaliation, labor law violations, bullying, civil rights abuses and other mistreatment in the workplace, at school or in the public sphere.
In personal injury law, we represent people who have been injured or lost loved ones to the careless or negligent acts of others. Our experienced legal team stands with you to assert your rights and to demand action and justice to right the wrongs.
Our firm’s commitment to justice has helped us become leaders in several important fields of law. School bullying and discrimination have become hot topics nationwide. We have fought for years to help children and the parents of children who have been tormented at school. It’s an issue that is important to us personally and professionally.
We are dedicated to protecting the rights of workers who have been injured on the job. When it comes to workplace injuries or illness, we fight for full workers’ compensation benefits and go after employers who retaliate against workers for making claims.
We Fight For Workers’ Rights, Civil Rights And The Rights Of Injury Victims
Located in Mount Laurel, the law firm of Costello & Mains advocates for clients in South Jersey and statewide. We take on insurance companies, employers and institutions that often trample on the rights of individuals. We can help you level the playing field and make sure you have access to justice, as the law demands. Kevin Costello first learned effective trial law nearly 30 years ago. Both he and Drake Bearden are certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as civil trial attorneys, a designation earned by only 2.2% of New Jersey lawyers. Our firm understands the tactics used to delay or deny the rights of employees, injury victims and individuals. Costello & Mains has never represented an insurance company or employer defendant and we never will. We believe in helping victims of negligence and misconduct get the money and protection they have coming to them.
Transcript: Your employment rights are your constitutional rights.

And students have the right to be free of such abuse in schools. You have the right to fair wages and overtime. At Costello and Mains, our trial lawyers and staff have been fighting for the rights of New Jersey working families for nearly 30 years. We’re ready to fight with and for you.
