About Dominic

Learn Dominic’s areas of practice.

People seek legal assistance for either of two primary reasons: to help them resolve problems, or to avoid problems in the first place. Porrino Law PC has a well-documented history of effectively representing and defending the interests of Northern Californians in all matters related to family law.

Our sense of compassion guides us to refer couples to counseling if we believe that reconciliation may still be attainable. For couples who have exhausted other options, however, our expertise encompasses legal separations, divorce actions, child custody and child support, estate planning, domestic violence, and formalizing pre-marital and post-marital legal agreements. We can help you attain the most amicable solution for your marital dissolution.

Just as every person is unique, so is every legal action, and we pledge to do all we can to bring your case to a successful resolution — preferably keeping the matter outside of court, as a means to reduce stress and costs. With offices in Sacramento and the San Francisco East Bay community of Walnut Creek, Porrino Law can help you put your life back on course.

Custody & Visitation
If I could give 10 stars, I would. I felt very supported with Dominic by my side. My case was nerve-wracking and stressful, as my child is so young and the situation abnormal. Dominic took the time to understand our case inside and out, he took the time to communicate with and help the other party in scheduling and in attempts to settle. While in court, he made sure I knew he was right there with me via text (Zoom hearing). He fought hard for us. Dominic is personable, extremely knowledgeable, and I trust him. He genuinely cares about the children involved. I would hire him 10 times over, and I know he is there for us if we ever need him again.

The best. Period.
Professional, accessible, responsive, flexible….these are just the beginning qualities of Mr. Porrino. I could not be more pleased with the results of his expertise and the outcomes achieved during my custody journey. He was and still is, the most important asset in my custody dispute. Without Mr. Porrino, my son would be denied my presence in his life. Thank you from both of us.

I’m so grateful for Dominic. He genuinely cares about his clients and was with me every step of the way. He is informative and efficient. He was extremely helpful and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. He was very professional and maintained transparency throughout the process. He was honest and forthcoming about all probable outcomes, helping to alleviate some of the anxiety. I appreciate Dominic’s assistance through this difficult time and will absolutely refer him. Great service! He is awesome!

Where do I began…. Dominic has been the BIGGEST BLESSING for my family and most competent attorney I have ever retained. I have worked with several attorneys spending thousands of dollars. I have battled my son’s father for several years. Dominic has always put my son’s best interest first, been honest, not sold me bs to take my money, kept my son safe, and not allowed the system to fail him. Even with the challenges we faced Dominic NEVER GAVE UP and didn’t allow me to give up. My son is now 10 years old, striving despite all the drama he endured as a young child. THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH STARS TO GIVE Dominic. I AM BEYOND GRATEFUL FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR US. If you want an educated, aggressive, and honest attorney call him you won’t be disappointed. He is worth every penny and will change your situation for the BETTER! I never imagined my son and I would be where we are today, it’s all because of the services we received from Porrino Law!

Calm in the Storm and Gets Results
When I discovered in December 2014 that my "best friend" of 25 years and husband of 20 years had been hiding a relationship with his carpool partner, I was in complete shock. It felt like everything I had counted on was suddenly turned upside down. I had been a stay-at-home mother and was just getting back into the workforce, while he had a high-paying job at Apple. Our marriage not only included our two children, but stock shares and options, his 401K, our new beautiful home, rental property, etc. There was no history of divorce in my family, and I had never needed the assistance of a lawyer. I was terrified. My therapist recommended Dominic Porrino, and I called him right away. I found Dominic extremely easy to talk with. He did not fit my image of a "lawyer." Dominic was always available and responsive to text, calls, and email. We met several times throughout my divorce, and I always found him to be relatable, friendly, patient, and good-hearted. He gave me the comfort and confidence I needed to work through the most difficult time of my life. Dominic also sought the expertise of a fantastic certified divorce financial analyst to help with "numbers." (I still use this advisor today, and he helped me find an excellent CPA.) In the end, Dominic enabled me to get the buyout I wanted, and I ended up with everything I could have hoped for in the Marriage Settlement Agreement. I was so impressed with Dominic's ability and interpersonal skills that I recommended him to two of my friends who then selected him for their attorney as well. Divorce can be terrifying, complicated, and painful, but Dominic has the personality, expertise, and experience to be the "rock" that clients need to find a successful ending. I could not recommend him more highly. Thank you, Dominic!
