    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.

    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.

    Great Attorney

    I was charged with a firearms misdemeanor in California back in February 2009 and I was clueless in finding an attorney to help me get out of this mess. I’m from Texas and happened to come across some good reviews on Mr. Lombardo. We got in contact and I trusted him with taking care of me while in Texas and while deployed to Iraq. He got my charge dropped to a lesser crime in order to keep my job and also got my 3 year probation dropped in just a matter of a few months after I had contacted him. He was fast to get on my case and always kept me informed throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Mr. Lombardo as he helped me retain my job and saved my career.

    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.
