Domestic Violence Charges

I had never been in trouble with the law before or had experience with any other lawyers, but when my revengeful (then) husband decided to make a false accusation of domestic violence against me, I knew that this was serious and I needed the best representation possible. It was then that I obtained Mr. Lombardo as my lawyer. Mr. Lombardo handled my case with great knowledge and professionalism. He was always responsive to my concerns and he was clearly well respected in the community, which gave him more leverage for negotiating. In the end, Mr. Lombardo was able to get the DA to drop the domestic violence charge against me. Nine months later, I received a letter from the Board of Registered Nursing which was threatening to take away my professional license due to said incident. I spoke to Mr. Lombardo about this and he showed great concern that I not lose my professional license and he handled the issue with the Board that same day, no charge! How many lawyers would do that? That just goes to show Mr. Lombardo’s genuine concern for the well-being of his clients. He is truly a one of a kind lawyer, not only the best at what he does but also willing to go the extra mile for his clients. If you are looking for the best legal representation, Mr. Lombardo is the lawyer to get.

This Man Saved My Life

I was pulled over in my home state a couple months ago for an expired registration, and minutes later I was in the back of a police cruiser. I thought I had satisfied the terms of my felony probation 10 years ago, but it turned out that I hadn’t and a warrant had been issued for my arrest and extradition. Luckily, it was so far, that they didn’t want to extradite me. I immediately went online searching for information and representation for my situation. I came upon Mr. Lombardo’s site, which is very well put together, and got an initial feeling that he specialized in my type of case: probation violation. Long story short, I called him, and he got right to work. He gave me an upfront flat fee to resolve my case. He listened to my explanation and gave me an honest evaluation. But most of all, he pushed me to help myself. He continued to encourage me to do the most I could to get the best outcome. I was facing possible jail time, or extended probation, which would’ve meant losing my job, being away from my family, and who knows what else. Mr. Lombardo got me through with the best outcome I could hope for. He knew exactly how to handle it, he knew the judges and court officials involved, and he did a great job at keeping me going through the whole thing. I would highly recommend him.

If You Need the Best

Domenic was helpful from the very beginning. I had questions over the phone he helped me, until things took a turn for the worst and he had to call me in his office, we thought nothing was going to happen but it did and the D.A tried to get me on a felony charge, which Domenic ended up proving there was no case so the D.A ended up rejecting the case, so it’s not going to a court case, which saved me a lot of money and more than that a ton of stress, I can’t thank him enough, and he is so easy to talk to, I felt like his friend and not just a lawyer, I recommend him to anyone who wants the best personal and knowledgeable lawyer you can get.

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.

Intelligent, Protective, Aggressive

Domenic was superb. He has a winning attitude about him and carries himself with tremendous pride. It is evident that Domenic takes his practice and clients very seriously. When you meet Domenic, he has this warming sense about him, but in his eyes you can see that this is a man who doesn’t lose. When I was accused of a horrible crime I scoured the internet looking for someone to help me through this terrible time. I had never been in legal trouble before and didn’t know where I should turn nor who I could trust. I searched on sites like this one, called a few numbers, and interviewed a handful of criminal defense attorneys. Hands down Domenic was the best; there were no close seconds. Domenic dissected my case down to the bare essentials and kept me ease throughout the legal process, explaining every details and assuring me that things would work out and life would go on. It was a very scary time but Domenic pulled through and was able to have the DA drop case. The entire process unfolded just as he promised, and the plaintiff’s camp ended up looking disorganized and unprofessional in comparison to Mr. Lombardo. If you’re in a bind, please consider calling Domenic and sitting down with him. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
