    Best Recommended Lawyer

    I’m an attorney, but don’t practice in Criminal Law. When a family member needed criminal representation recently, I was given Mr. Lombardo’s name by one of my law partners. I’m glad that he did: For a very fair price, Mr. Lombardo represented my relative over the 2-1/2 months it took to resolve his case. Throughout that time, Mr. Lombardo was only a phone call or e-mail away; I know that he always responded promptly to developments in the case. At my relative’s request, I sat in on several meetings, and found Mr. Lombardo to be empathetic and thorough. He explained the intricacies of the criminal justice system in a way that my relative could understand, and also was very frank about the pros and cons of the case’s possible result. It turned out that the result was good one, and I think that’s in no small part due to Mr. Lombardo’s knowledge of the system (he’s a former Public Defender, I believe) and his thoroughness. I will not hesitate to recommend him to a friend or family member in the future, should the need arise.

    The Best Lawyer in San Diego

    I obtained Mr. Lombardo when I wanted to have my probation changed from formal to summary because my husband is in the military and we were moving to another state. When we went to court the D.A and the probation office was against me leaving and Mr. Lombardo told the judge my situation and the judge approved the change of my probation to summary. I really wished I would have obtained him in the beginning when I was arrested, but I had paid a lot of money to another attorney in Vista, CA that really did nothing for me. I would recommend Mr. Lombardo to anyone needing a defense attorney. He is very smart, wise, honest and fees are very reasonable. Thank you so much, Mr. Lombardo, for everything you have done for my case.

    My Late Husband’s Case

    We are not talking an easy case. My husband was charged with several felonies involving firearms. It was Mr. Lombardo who personally took the case. He understood that my late husband was a good man but was dealing with some depression and drinking issues that got him into this mess. It was my initial request when I was seeking someone to represent him that he did not need the incarceration but mandatory treatment. Mr. Lombardo agreed. I was impressed, as was my late husband, on how Mr. Lombardo handled the case. We were well informed what was happening, what he was planning to do and what he had foreseen as the possible outcome.

    At the initial hearing he was very professional and respected by his peers. We were able to avoid a mandatory restraining order. While we waited for the next hearing he researched thoroughly to get every possible means to cut my late husband’s sentencing. He said we may not even go to trial, and added if he had a crystal ball my late husband would get probation and mandatory treatment.

    I recommend Domenic Lombardo and his office staff gets the highest recommendation. It’s no wonder he is considered one of San Diego’s finest criminal lawyers. He may be a little pricey but the money was well worth what for what you get. Thank you, Domenic Lombardo.

    Phenomenal Lawyer

    Domenic was more on top of things regarding my case then I had ever imagined. As this was my first time dealing with anything like this he made me feel extremely confident at the desired outcome. He was so confident and organized that it gave me the confidence I needed to take this thing on. My case was dismissed after Domenic destroyed the prosecution’s case. He had my case dismissed before we ever went to trial. His rates are low for such superior service. I would recommend him to anyone engaged with the legal system. Operates with 100% integrity.

    I sincerely believe that Mr. Lombardo saved my son from true disaster and my family will be indebted to him for ever. Thanks to his efforts the outcome of the case was beyond our best expectations. On top of that he went beyond his professional obligations to educate and advise my son so that he could get back on the right track in life. I strongly recommend him if you have a loved one in trouble.
