    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.

    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.

My case was a San Diego criminal matter and the knowledge of the San Diego courts Mr. Lombardo provided made all of the difference.

    I have hired many lawyers in the past. It is rare to find an attorney that is honest with you, listens to what you want, and does what he says.

    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.

    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.
