  • Frank James Polek

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Lisa Damiani is one of the few attorneys in San Diego who truly does both civil litigation and criminal defense, rather than just dabbling in one. She is extremely articulate, intelligent and appropriately aggressive. I wouldn't want her on the other side of one of my cases.
