Thankful...
We had one week to fight a state declaration for a driver's license restriction due to excess traffic points. We spoke with Rod several times and within days, they had a motion in front of the judge and the case was resolved in our favor. We received sincere, prompt, thorough, very personable, and successful representation. We will definitely refer Bridgette Domingo's office to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.

Domingos law
I was seeking counsel for a relative when I came across Domingos law .. I was hesitant to call at first. I called two more attorneys but I kept thinking about Mrs Domings so I spoke to my God father. He read everything I presented to him about Mrs Domings. He got half way through and said " She is the one" and I don't refute anything my God father says so I consulted Domingos law . I spoke with Mrs Domingos, she was very patient with me she answered every question I had ... I retained Domingos law and I'm glad I did... Both Bridgette and Rod are a dynamic duo and very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.. My case is ongoing (NOW) .

I have known Bridgette for a few years and I know her to be a very strong advocate for clients. She does an excellent job preparing for court and making strong arguments on her client's behalf, even when, at first look, the client's case does not seem so strong.

WHEN FAMILY MATTERS!
This case was a very delicate case because it involved a family matter and showing a bias one way or the other would have been detrimental. Attorney Bridgette understood the sensitive nature of the case and very skillfully was able to win both sides, two people in disagreement which landed a husband in jail, a wife felling shameful and a Pastor stuck in the middle. Bridgette did a great in getting the charges dropped and giving this family an opportunity to heal.

Great Lawyer
My encounter with Attorney Lester is that she is very qualified and is always prepared. As a Sole practitioner you expect for there to be minor problems in the practice, what, i have found is she and her staff are always prepared and also professional. A firm I️ would use again.

Amazing Attorney
Ms. Bridgette's accountability is one of her strong suits. Her dedication to my case was something very impressive, calling state attorneys and negotiating with them in such a way where my charges were dropped. Thanks Bridgette, I definitely recommend her if you want real results!

Awesome advice
I initially spoke with Attorney Jackson regarding my situation and like other attorneys, she laid my case out before me and what I should expect. The difference is that she went beyond the call of duty and sought after more information that would eventually help me make my decision. I always felt as though she had my best interest at hand, even before officially becoming her client. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Fired deputy not guilty verdict
Bridgette Lester was an outstanding equalizer in an unfair playing field. After a bad breakup and ex-girlfriend wrongfully accused me and I was charged with three felonies. Bridgette was able to get 2 of the felonies dropped and went to battle for me and a highly-publicized politically charged trial. Bridget along with co-counsel John trevena excellently explain to the jury the situation is not always as it seems. Through execution of the law and staying by my family side the whole way through the process, Bridgette was able to achieve the almost near impossible not guilty verdict I knew when I met her all I had to do was give her the resource and information and let her take it from there. Ridgid is fastly becoming one of Tampa Bay's top defense attorneys and has a reputable name everywhere from Pinellas to Polk County I would recommend it to anyone and I'll put my name on the dotted line next to her anyday not only is she a great Council but she is a true friend and family woman I think God I met Bridget and John the way I did and could not be more happy with the outcome. Thanks Bridgette
