    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
