Testimonials

Best Defense Attorney

I hired Mr. Lombardo for my daughter, Jasmin, in March 2010. I was surprised when he offered to go and talk with Jasmin in jail before I even retained him as an attorney. Also, the fact that I could reach him any time was very refreshing from an attorney! He is extremely polite. He responds, he cares, he performs. He is reasonable and does his homework in advance. The result was my daughter was released without a strike. Domenic Lombardo is the best defense attorney you can buy. He has my vote for conduct, knowledge and professionalism. Thank you, Domenic!

This Man Is the Real Deal

Two years ago we were living on the other side of the country and got “that” phone call that our 21 year old daughter was in trouble. After asking a few folks we trusted Attorney Lombardo was recommended to us. I thank God every day he was put in our path. This man is the man you want standing up for you when your world is about to fall apart. We are just finalizing this journey and if not for Mr. Lombardo our daughter would not be getting the second chance she is. Tomorrow this nightmare ends and it is thanks to Domenic Lombardo’s hard work, diligence and yes belief in our daughter that things have turned out the way they have. I can’t say enough to let you know your money is well spent when you hire attorney Lombardo. To the negative poster, all I can say is something is missing in your post. That is not the man we know and have come to admire so very much. Thank you Attorney Lombardo, you are one of the good guys. The world is a better place for people like you. We will never forget you and your number is firmly in the keeper file.

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.
