ASSOCIATE JUSTICE FRANCISCO P. ACOSTA
FRANCISCO P. ACOSTAMarried to the former Alma Madayag and blessed with four children namely, April Ma. Bernadette, Ma. Franchette, Earl Brian and Francis Nikolai, Justice Francisco P. Acosta has been in the private practice of law since 1972 up to the time he was appointed Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals.

Graduating as Magna Cum Laude in San Beda College with a degree in AB Philosophy, he finished law in the same school in 1971 and earned for himself a silver medal for ranking fifth in his class. As expected, he hurdled the bar exams given the same year and immediately embarked in the private practice of law. This started his long and extensive legal career. In the years to follow, Justice Acosta established, together with colleagues, several law offices, the last of which is the Acosta & Fernandez Law Office. He also served as Consultant for the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC), the Mayor of Taguig, the Committees on Energy and on Corporations and Franchises of the House Representatives and for the Speaker. He was a part-time instructor at the Philippine School of Business Administration.

Justice Acosta is currently the Vice -President and Member of the Board of Trustees of San Beda Law Alumni. He is likewise a member of the Asean Law Association and the Rotary Club of Fairview. During his free time, the justice plays golf and tennis.
