I highly recommend this lawyer
Dominic came highly recommended and did not disappoint. After being charged with DUI over the summer I feared that I would not only lose my driving privelidges, but also my job. I was assured that he had the expertise and experience to either get the charges reduced or even dropped. Dominic was professional, understanding, and most of all an attorney with compassion. After several court appearances he was able to get the charges dropped after discovering that my soberiety test was administered improperly. I cannot begin to explain how greatful I am for Dominic’s legal expertise. He truly cares about his clients. Thank you Dominic!

Mr Buttitta took my case and went beyond my expectations. He treats you like family and will do what needs to be done so all parties are happy. He educates you and keeps you updated throughout the process so there are no surprises along the way. He is a very honest and trustworthy lawyer. The best around!

Excellent Attorney
Dominic represented me during my Divorce proceedings and I couldn't be more pleased. He always made times to address my concerns, was honest, and was cost effective. He also represented my son on a DUI charge where we went to trial and got a not guilty jury verdict. Dominic is my go to with all my legal issues.
