Exceptional
Every lawyer fights for their clients interests, but not every lawyer cares. That is the difference between Dominic and other layers. Dominic is not afraid to make the system work for you, even when other lawyers are afraid of taking on the status quo. Dominic is respectful, professional, and will fight for your justice.

Best advice I've been given in a very long time!
I have been searching for answers about a few things for quite some time. And by luck I came across this amazing attorney! So far I have not had the pleasure of working with him in person however he has given me some advice, that honestly is very reassuring. So, just based on my interactions with him I have no doubt in my mind that in the future I will be recommending him to others in my area as well!

Outstanding Attorney
My family recently hired Dominic in a criminal matter in which the charges could have ruined my career and reputation. The moment we met him, we knew we made the right choice. I have previously dealt with high profile attorneys in other cases and after hiring Dominic, I wish we had gone with him from the start. He seems to always be available when you need him, is compassionate to your circumstance and knowledgable. He got my case dismissed without a trial and is currently working on getting my CORI sealed at a very fair price. Highly recommend.

I hired Dominic as my attorney and his responsiveness, kindness, extensive knowledge of harassment prevention orders , and advice are all the standard for other attorneys to aspire to. He is a role model and I still feel great for having met him. I will never lose his number. Thank you Dominic. Regards. David.

Early Termination of Probation & Sealing Criminal Record
Dominic will explain your situation in detail and the options available to you. Navigating the criminal justice system is scary especially if you have been falsely accused of a crime of domestic violence. He will analyze your case in detail, whether it is pending or you feel you have had an unfavorable outcome with previous legal council. In my original case, I was falsely accused of domestic assault and battery. At the advise of my first attorney, I pled to sufficient facts that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts could find me guilty in exchange for two years supervised probation; this was a 'Continuance Without a Finding', commonly known as a 'CWOF'. Dominic was able to terminate my probation early and seal my criminal a year later. I recommend this attorney for anyone facing criminal charges of any kind. I learned the hard way that it is best to seek skilled and dedicated legal council as soon as possible after you are accused of any crime by anyone, or you feel that you are under threat of accusation. Do not accept any plea arrangement before at least consulting with Dominic Pang. Know that very few prosecutors actually want to go to trial; they are hoping you are scared into pleading out regardless of your innocence or guilt. Attorney Pang will recommend your best course of action and represent you with vigor. His fees are reasonable and well worth it.

Dominic is truly a "clutch" lawyer; he's exactly what one needs and when one needs it!!!
I cannot say enough about the exceptional legal skills, knowledge, professionalism, compassion, and "drive" that Dominic Pang demonstrated throughout the lengthy process of having my record sealed early! His honesty and accessibility to me was exceptional from start to finish! I had not experienced the aforementioned with any of the other lawyers I first started working with (hired) and/or had consulted with on this case prior to finding Dominic. He truly "gets the job done" and gets it done with reasonable fee(s), especially given that he puts forth double the efforts as other attorneys in my experience.

Lifesaver!
Dominic is the lawyer to hire when you are out of your depth, out of state, and out of time. He stepped in at the last minute and prepared my daughter and I for what to expect. At all times, he was calm, professional, and compassionate. And when things didn't go as expected, his experience with the court enabled him to negotiate alternatives that he then assisted us through. He represented us flawlessly. We couldn't have asked for more. If you are unfortunate enough to need help, you can't do better than Dominic.

Fantastic Job by a Stellar Lawyer, in a Nightmarish Situation
Our 15 year old son very unwisely played with home-made explosives in the back yard, less than a year after the Boston Marathon incident. A huge media circus and police/bomb-squad/FBI-scene ensued, resulting in a nightmarish almost-3-month-long detaining of our son, with the looming threat of indictment, overhung our family. Dominic Pang was able to work extremely professionally with the DA and authorities to finally obtain a release & return of our son, and all charges resolved, including the dropping of the intended indictment. Dominic literally brought us through the worst moment of our family's history, from an extremely sensitive 'hot-topic' case, with the complete loss of our son to the system... to complete freedom and restoration of our family and complete resolution of the case without permanent record or effect on our son's future. He even went the extra mile to get him completely readmitted to school & allowed on vacation out of state with his family. I specifically recall one long day in court watching dozens of lawyers come and go, making their cases as best they could for their parties, thinking to myself for each one... "He could have said that better... or She should have made this point..." and so on. Then, when Dominic made the appeal for our son, I only found myself thinking... "That is exactly the perfect point... I couldn't have said that better... Wow, he really connected with the judge on that point... (and finally to my wife) - Dominic was by far the best lawyer in that room, all day!" A professional, brilliant, creative, highly responsible and deeply human & sincere Lawyer,... Attorney Pang has my full & unreserved recommendation, as well as my deep gratitude for doing the absolute best job one could ever hope for, in what seemed at the time an impossible and hopeless situation.

Did a great job defending me against a potential restraining order issuance
I can’t thank Mr. Pang enough for handling my case and seeing it through to a great result. My particular case entailed a neighbor dispute in which the neighbors attempted to have a restraining order (258e harassment prevention order) issued against me. Had this order been issued against me, I would have been looking at having a record in the state’s domestic violence registry for potential employers to see. Because of Mr. Pang’s handling of my case, this restraining order wasn’t issued and my record remains clean. To those who find themselves in a similar situation, at minimum, you need to retain legal council if you want to have a fighting chance of a successful defense against a restraining order request/complaint and I recommend Mr. Pang without reservation.

I Highly Reccomend! Judge praised Mr. Pang for his sealing motion in my case.
Dominic handled a sealing matter for me. I did extensive research and he was very active in many online boards. His answers were concise and he was very knowledgeable and seemed spot on from a layman's perspective. During our first phone call he was bright and engaging asking many questions and answering all of mine. Such a petition can take some time but in the interim he was immediately responsive to any questions or concerns I had. Emails would be returned within a day and often in a couple of hours. On the day of the sealing he spoke with me and explained the process and the possible outcomes. It was good feeling I had someone so competent on my side. When the judge finally heard the matter he took some time to read the case but came back saying that he was initially going to deny the motion but that Dominic's motion was "brilliantly written." The judge then spent several minutes praising Mr. Pang's legal expertise. He went so far as to say it would have been a "pleasure to hear his oral arguments" but since his motion was so well written it was unnecessary. It is a great feeling to have your advocate praised in court. The motion was approved and the record was sealed. I would highly recommend Dominic Pang. Court is not a fun place to be but if Dominic is your lawyer your odds of success greatly improve. Thank you!

Mr. Pang is a great lawyer to work with. I had a resisting arrest and a disorderly person charge. I was nervous because I never been in trouble before and was not familiar with anything having to do with court. Mr. Pang was very reassuring and knowledgeable. To other people these are minor charges and I could have taken a CWOF for them and have the case end there. However, I knew that I was being falsely accused and would not accept the easy way out. Because I was confident in his ability to deliver, I chose to go to trial and I was acquitted of both charges. Throughout this case that went on for almost a year, Mr. Pang kept in contact with me to keep me up to date with what was happening. He was very responsive. Whenever I had a question, especially about what I can expect for each court date I attended, he replied in detail and in a timely manner. Overall, Mr. Pang is a great attorney. He takes pride in his occupation and rightfully so. He's very professional and I would definitely recommend him.

Beyond satisfied
Dominic Pang exceeded my expectations (and I'm tough). Not only was he able to win my case, he took every step of my case extremely serious. He was responsive to all my requests and answered every question. On the day of trial, he was extremely prepared; it was evident he done his research and that he was prepared to win my case. As nerve wrecking as my case was (and any case is for that matter) I felt more at ease that he was there and even more so when I heard how aggressive he was when defending me in court. I recommend Mr. Pang to anyone looking for a lawyer who is reliable, trustworthy and that will fight hard on your behalf.

We needed a Boston lawyer and we live in California
We needed a lawyer in Massachusetts to help us with a citation my daughter received while working in Boston for the summer. Dominic explained everything, was very patient with our persistent nervous parent questions, dealt with her in a respectful and professional manner, and had an excellent outcome, dismissal. We found him through reviews like this, and were very well represented
