The Best of the Best!
I recently had the pleasure of working alongside Mika Domingo with M.S. Domingo Law Group. To say she was a pleasure to work with would be an understatement. As a Realtor and Certified Probate Specialist, Mika and I worked alongside each other to help a mutual client sell her mother's home. The proceeds were going to fund the mother's care. We were up against a major timeline and every day counted. Mika is patient, responsive and incredibly caring...especially when it comes to the well being of her clients. She is the ultimate professional!

Best Lawyer I've Ever Worked With
Mika Domingo and her staff are very professional, and I really appreciate how Mika treats her clients like her family. Not a single moment did I feel like I was working with my lawyer. I must say, while I was going through a very tough time with the loss of my dad whilst having to take care of legal issues, Mika really helped in my bereavement alongside my case. It really makes a whole lot of difference when you experience that your lawyer truly cares about you and your case. What made it great with Mika is that when I was on the verge of giving up, she didn’t, and that inspired me to persevere, too. Mika has also done an excellent job in finding solutions for me and she has consistently updated me with the progress; she always provided me with research and explanations, so I’d fully understand where we were at. I commend her excellent analytical and research skills. Her sound judgement and creativity in finding solutions are incomparable. I am very lucky I found her and truly am thankful for all of her time and patience with me. If you need a talented and compassionate lawyer, there’s no one else to recommend but Mika. You won’t regret it.

Outstanding service and knowledge
Mika helped me with the settlement of my fathers estate. She was so helpful and kind at such a difficult time. I would recommend anyone who is frustrated with estate/Trust settlement issues to work with Mika as her kindness was unsurpassed.

Knowledgable, compassionate and honest
I could go on and on about Mika, but this only allows me 4000 characters so I'll keep it brief. I was in a predicament that required legal counsel and felt blessed that I found her. She was patient (especially with my frustrated ramblings), kind, calm and knowledgeable. I had a good handle on my situation, but the peace of mind I had with running things by her before acting on them was well worth the money. It was a long journey and now that it has come to an end, all I can give is praise and gratitude for her help. I'll be keeping her number on speed dial if any other unfortunate circumstances arise in the future. Knowing that I have her in my corner relieves so much stress and makes me feel confident that I'll be taken care of! Thanks again for everything, Mika!

Excellent Attorney
My wife and I hired Ms. Domingo to develop our trust. We came to the appointment knowing very little on the legal consequences and ramifications of developing a trust. Ms. Domingo sat patiently with us and explained every step. Her depth of knowledge, patience, and professionalism was unmatched by any other attorney we had interviewed. We have been extraordinarily happy with the trust we placed in Ms. Domingo, and would highly recommend her to any friend or family member.

Made everything so simple!
I hired Michelle to assist me in incorporating my solo practice, and she spent a lot of time explaining the process and took care of everything so that I could focus on running my practice. She's incredibly knowledgeable and prompt with responses to my questions. I highly recommend using Michelle!

Trust/Will Estate Planning
Michelle was an exceptional in planning my families trust and will. She guided us and was a tremendous help doing this for my sister and me while in town. She was so responsive and quick to get the paperwork needed for the grant deed, trust, will. She answers questions via email or phone in a timely manner. I have already shared her name with quite a few friends for their future planning. We are so pleased to have such an important process behind us.

Tax compliance
As for cross border businesses, we always encounter situation related to tax issues. Mika helped the company to ensure the tax compliance understanding for proper arrangement as well as giving us professional and valuable comment on our contract wording.

Community Involvement
I met Mika through the board of the Women's Section of the Contra Costa County Bar Association. She was the 2016 President of the board, and continues to serve as a board member - which she has done for five years. She also serves on the board of the CCCBA. Mika is a strong leader, and works well with the other board members. She is always willing to contribute to community activities.

LLC Partnership Dissolution
Mika left a very good impression to me when we first talked over the phone. Through the sound of her voice and the way she listened and tackled the issues, I felt her warmth and compassion. It was when I met her and talk to her, that she exceeded my expectations. She was not only the Mika that I thought she was but she has more. My problem was an LLC partnership with me being financially, morally and psychologically abused by my business partner. Mika was very helpful. When I arrived, she was very much prepared with her notes on the table. She gave me facts, advantages , disadvantages and options. She was extremely detail oriented, knowledgeable, well experienced and most of all, she was sensitive to my issues and concerns. After the consultation, I was so relieved that without any hesitancy, I already know the answers to all of my questions . Until now, she is still extending her hands in giving me advise whenever I have questions and concerns. Mika is way commendable, she is an asset in her field and I strongly encourage anybody to choose her should you have problems in your business, estate and all other legal issues. She will definitely be a huge help.

Great attorney for wills!
I am an elderly woman who was afraid of the entire litigation process. I have known Mika for the past four years, where she assisted me with the preparation of my last will and Testament. In my opinion, I rate her as a top-notch attorney. Mika made the experience smooth and comfortable as she was able to put me at ease regarding such a dreadful subject. I kept putting off such an unpleasant experience. Mika changed that instantly. Mika operated in a very calm, reassuring manner as she first explained each step necessary to accomplish this task. She gave me list of required documents to bring to the next meeting which made things clear and uncomplicated. That really put me at ease as I was dreading this entire process. Mika was confident and thoroughly knowledgeable about what had to be done legally. We accomplished completing the will in two meetings. She is very kind and easy to understand. She put my mind at ease the first time I met her and I recommend her highly to anyone who needs any kind of legal issues resolved. Mika is an asset to the legal system.

Thank you Michelle, you're the best!
We needed some guidance in establishing our company in the U.S. and were referred to Michelle. She was able to provide all the help we needed in getting our firm set up including advice about LLCs vs LLPs, and other legal documents we require. She helped us with our non-disclosure agreement, consulting contracts and reviewing agreements from possible partner companies. We have made our plans to go forward based on her invaluable help, thanks to her.
