This highly prestigious national award recognises ‘unsung heroes’ who have gone the extra mile in their work and delivered lasting results for separating families through a non-confrontational approach. In 2017 independent legal industry directory The Legal 500, said of Jonathan in its recommendation that he is “compassionate, intelligent and forward thinking”. The 2019 edition said, "Jonathan da Costa is a collaborative lawyer and exceptional advocate." The 2021 edition describes Jonathan as an "excellent lawyer". In November 2016 Jonathan was recognised for being a leader in his field in the Kent section of Chambers and Partners legal directory, known for the depth and quality of its research. The directory wrote: “Jonathan Da Costa is particularly admired for his talent in collaborative law methods. He handles a broad range of matrimonial finance matters including those involving businesses, tax and pensions.” It added that sources say: "You know the client is in a safe pair of hands; he's an exceptional practitioner." Jonathan has been named amongst the recommended lawyers in Chambers every year, including the 2021 edition which praised Jonathan for his experience in a range of complex family law matters. Jonathan advises in all aspects of marriage and relationship breakdown, promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems, is a trained collaborative practitioner, is also a litigator so can, if you wish, represent you in formal court proceedings, will take time to understand your circumstances and explain how he can help you build for the future. Jonathan has a particular specialism in financial issues and regularly advises higher net worth clients on their business interests, tax issues, investments, property and pensions in the context of divorce and separation which often involves working with a valuer, accountant or actuary.

Great firm. Very professional.

I found Boys and Maughan online earlier this year and decided to call them for some advice regarding my ongoing divorce.
After a couple of calls I chose to go forward and asked them to handle my matrimonial affairs. I am very happy with the professional way things have been and are still being dealt with and the respectful way I have been treated. I have spoken with Johnathan via phone calls and email on a few occasions and am very grateful for the ongoing help and service that has been provided.

I was at ease with Jonathan from the beginning and appreciated his calm and methodical approach. A good resolution was achieved with a minimum of friction.
