Felony Assault Charges

I was charged with two felony assault accounts. I had no priors. However, the most important facet to a D.A. is getting a criminal conviction. Both of these accounts entailed years in prison (one account alone was 3-4 years in prison. Jail was more likely based on having no priors. The case that was prosecuted was two felonies. I initially had another attorney that had a felony criminal record. Thus I fired him and began a search for a new attorney. I asked several knowledgeable people who I should hire. I was given several names and conducted a search. Domenic seemed to be the best choice after the research. The District Attorney would not agree to reduce the charges to a misdemeanor/no-contest.

Domenic was always on time, professional, and courteous. He explained the facts and how the case was going to develop. He also explained how the prosecution was going to develop their case. Domenic is familiar with the judges, D.A., courtroom departments and who these people are. He has developed personal-building relationships with these people and it was evident over the time of my trial. It took nearly a year for this case to go to trial. After numerous court appearances and the stress of having pending felony charges, it was time for trial. Domenic was more prepared for the case than the D.A. He knew far more facts surrounding the case. Prior to the trial Domenic had two different investigators issuing subpoenas to numerous persons involved in the case. He also had these investigators staying updated with any changes or developments regarding witnesses. The cost of the entire case was costly. However, it was worth every penny when that not guilty verdict on all charges was read.

Domenic presented the case in an articulate manner and dissected every police report in a way that the truth eventually surfaced in court. Domenic Lombardo is one of the best criminal lawyers in San Diego. He also has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this lawyer.

Look No Further

After several disappointing meetings with typical DUI attorneys, I decided to hire a criminal lawyer for my unusual case. Domenic’s initial consultation surpassed all the competition. I found an attorney that gave me answers and did not feed me unnecessary sympathy and want to hold my hand through the process. He was all business when it came to the details of my case. Domenic was confident and strategic with all the decisions forward on my multiple felony DUI case. I preferred his style of no BS and realistic predictions towards the best/worst case scenarios of my charges. He always responded to all my questions and concerns in a timely manner and kept my mind at ease throughout the entire process. His attention to detail and amazing retention of my restriction and court dates was impressive. From the very beginning, he was a relentless advocate for me when dealing with the DMV, District Attorney and Prosecutor inside and outside the court room. His advice was not only beneficial to myself, but also made an impact to the Judge during my sentencing. The end result was 2 felonies dropped down to 1 misdemeanor, no jail time, less than 3 days of public service along with a 3 month court ordered program (versus 9 month program). If you’re considering retaining Domenic to defend you for your multiple DUI felony case, look no further! I guarantee that you will not be disappointed with his services and that he will get you best possible outcome you deserve.

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.

Very Professional

Due to recent arrest and possible felony conviction, I needed professional, experienced legal counsel immediately. Not really knowing how to go about obtaining such, I noticed a web ad for Domenic Lombardo defense attorney, 19 years of success. I highly doubt that I could have made a better choice. He and his associate Jay Temple are very professional, confidential, knowledgeable and thorough defense attorneys. Their knowledge of the law and process to get the best outcome possible is truly incredible. At any time they were happy to answer any questions I had, which also helped deal with my anxiety. My case seemed fairly straightforward, and I didn’t have much hope. With Domenic and Jay on my side, I gradually became less anxious, and more hopeful. My case ended with a dismissal, these guys really know what they are doing! I can’t say enough about their professionalism and knowledge of the law, but if you are in a position where you need excellent legal defense counsel, you need Domenic and Jay on your side. On my final court day with Domenic, I couldn’t help but notice how well respected he was by the other counsel in the court. They know him, because he is a truly successful defense attorney. Thanks again guys!
