Dominick Saved Us Thousands!
Dominick Severance and Severance Law saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation expenses and claims. We were being backed into a corner from a former client who filed a lawsuit against our business; the complaint was filled with false and misleading claims and accusations. Within the the first 30 minutes of our initial consultation, Dominick understood exactly what was going on and had a very peaceful and soothing way of putting our minds at ease; we had been stressed out about the situation for months! We really did find peace in the process even against all odds. Dominick then looked at all the evidence, did what great attorneys do, and had our case dismissed within weeks. We highly recommend Severance Law to all our friends and family and we will forever be grateful for Dominick Severance!

Simply the best
I would recommend the services of Dominick Severance without rearvation. More so than any lawyer I have worked with, he was capable I helping me understand the larger chess board. As the song goes you need to know when to hold em and know when to fold em. Dominick was able to helped me understand how a settlement in my case was a far better approach than a hail mary case. Not only did I learn a great deal about this case but I learned in this future how to more critically analyze contracts to ensure I don't relinqhish rights if damages occur. Although I am hoping I will not have any further conflict, I will certainly reach out to Dominick Severance if I ever am in need of legal services in this arena.

Small Project & Service Manager
We hired Dominick at Severance Law to help with some very pressing issues in regard to state compliances for our company. The issues that arose were beginning to seem unsurmountable but as soon as Dom came on, he provided peace of mind with clear and concise information and direction through resolution. Every step of the way Dom was on top of the next required action item with even more in depth explanations for proceeding. State compliance is not something to take lightly and Dom was a breath of fresh air in a situation that seemed very daunting. We will always call Dom and trust him entirely to provide honest help with any legal issues that arise.
