Domenic was helpful from the very begining,I had questions over the phone he helped me,until things took a turn for the worst and he had to call me in his office,we thought nothing was going to happen but it did and the D.A tried to get me on a felony charge,which domenic ended up proving there was no case so the D.A ended up rejecting the case,so its not going to a court case,which saved me alot of money and more than that a ton of stress,I cant thank him enough,and he is so easy to talk to, I felt like his friend and not just a lawyer,I recommend him to anyone who wants the best personal and knowlegable lawyer you can get.

The second I met Domenic I knew he was the attorney I was going to hire. I had seen many other attorneys; however Domenic was the only one that put my mind at ease and made me feel like everything was going to be alright. He discussed every possible outcome of my case, and explained everything I needed to know. He took away the "fear of the unknown." I was confident that he would get me the best possible outcome for my case. He said quote “I will not stop until I get what I want.”
When I was arrested he was in vacation in Mexico. But that did not stop him from giving 100%, and he immediately began working on my case. He called me from a cell phone in Mexico, and I could hear the waves crashing against the sand. Even before I had officially hired Mr. Lombardo, he was already contacting the D.A.’s office on behalf of my case.
Mr. Lombardo kept me informed every step of the way. He seemed to have genuine concern for me and my case, and if he sensed any discomfort from me he promptly made me feel at ease.
When the day came to go to court, Mr. Lombardo quickly resolved my case with the judge and the D.A. and managed to get me an INCREDIBLE deal. I truly believe that if I would have had any other attorney, I would not have gotten such a deal.
To sum up my review of Mr. Domenic Lombardo, I simply say that if you hire any other attorney, you are making a mistake.

Domenic was superb. He has a winning attitude about him and carries himself with tremendous pride. It is evident that Domenic takes his practice and clients very seriously. When you meet Domenic, he has this warming sense about him, but in his eyes you can see that this is a man who doesn't lose. When I was accused of a horrible crime I scoured the internet looking for someone to help me through this terrible time. I had never been in legal trouble before and didn't know where I should turn nor who I could trust. I searched on sites like this one, called a few numbers, and interviewed a handful of criminal defense attorneys. Hands down Domenic was the best; there were no close seconds. Domenic dissected my case down to the bare essentials and kept me at ease throughout the legal process, explaining every detail and assuring me that things would work out and life would go on. It was a very scary time but Domenic pulled through and was able to have the DA drop my case. The entire process unfolded just as he promised, and the plaintiff's camp ended up looking disorganized and unprofessional in comparison to Mr. Lombardo. If you're in a bind, please consider calling Domenic and sitting down with him. I promise you you will not be disappointed.

Domenic is a fantastic lawyer. He is very knowledgeable about the law and treats his clients very well. In addition to seeing him in court numerous times, I have also seen Domenic give his time and talents to the community as we are both members of the executive committee of the Criminal Defense Lawyer's Club, a nonprofit. He has shown his dedication time and again to his clients and the nonprofit.
