    100% Representation, Cares About People

    I was arrested on multiple felony charges last year in San Diego, CA. My father lived in another state and found Domenic by luck to represent me. Domenic is highly respected in the courtroom and there to help. He was always available by phone, even on the weekends, no phone tag. Domenic is now handling the expungement of the felony charges that I was arrested for last year. Amazing!

    I would seriously recommend Mr. Lombardo to anyone in trouble, he is truly a good lawyer and person.

    Thank you, Domenic, for all you have done and continue to do.

    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.

    An Excellent Attorney

    The second I met Domenic I knew he was the attorney I was going to hire. I had met with many other attorneys; however Domenic was the only one that put my mind at ease and made me feel like everything was going to be alright. He discussed every possible outcome of my case, and explained everything I needed to know. He took away the “fear of the unknown”; I was confident that he would get me the best possible outcome for my case. He said “I will not stop until I get what I want”. When I was arrested he was on vacation, but that did not stop him from giving 100% and he immediately began working on my case. He called me from a cell phone in Mexico, and I could hear the waves crashing against the sand. Even before I had officially hired Mr. Lombardo, he was already contacting the D.A.’s office on behalf of my case. Mr. Lombardo kept me informed every step of the way. He seemed to have genuine concern for me and my case, and if he sensed any discomfort from me he promptly made me feel at ease. When the day came to go to court, Mr. Lombardo quickly resolved my case with the judge and the D.A and managed to get me an incredible deal. I truly believe that if I would have had any other attorney, I would have gotten such a deal. To sum up my review of Mr. Domenic Lombardo, I simply say that if you hire any other attorney, you are making a mistake.

    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.
