A Reputed Lawyer

He is a firebrand lawyer. Fearless and courageous. He gives more importance to justice than to Judges. Committed to society and dedicated to common people he works as a one man army in educating people about very important legal obligations in public life. Being a legal practitioner he come across many cases where educated people suffer being ignorant of law. When many lawyers felt educating people about legal aspects not important, Adv. Stanley R. D'Costa ventured into it. Many candles were burned in the midnight and when looking back what we see is a mountain of achievements. A number of books written and published in people's common languages. Plenty of legal articles were published in periodicals.

Any such act is known as a notarization!
