About Me

Michele H. Domingo works on behalf of individuals needing immigration help, as well as families needing wills, and estate planning. Ms. Domingo is passionate about human rights, and believes human rights include immigrant rights and GLBTQ rights. She is dedicated to advocating for these rights by representing individuals in immigration matters and family estate planning.

Ms. Domingo has a particular interest in advocating on behalf of immigrants and refugees with lack of access to legal resources, as well as securing the rights of all families, including GLBTQ individuals.  She is also experienced in representing a diverse group of individuals and families from many countries around the word, GLBTQ individuals and immigrants, survivors of domestic violence, and refugees.

She has handled cases before the Federal Immigration Court, United States Citizens and Immigration Services, New York City Criminal Court, and New York City Civil Court. 

For over 10 years, Ms. Domingo has been a legal and community advocate on behalf of individuals in Washington and New York State. She is active with the Catholic Community Services Immigration Legal Services assisting low-income immigrant and refugee clients with their immigration issues. She has worked as an attorney at Seattle University’s School of Law, Access to Justice Institute, and a public defender for the New York City Legal Aid Society, and has been a law clerk at Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and Immigration Equality (formerly the Lesbian and Gay Immigration Rights Task Force).


Ms. Domingo has served as a pro-bono immigration attorney with Northwest Immigrant Rights Project representing survivors of domestic violence, and as Chair to the Legal Immigration Service Providers Forum, providing technical assistance and support on immigration matters to BIA (Board of Immigration Appeals) Accredited Representatives and BIA recognized non-profits in Seattle.
