A sophisticated defense is available for your various needs.
A Criminal Defense
Criminal charges can be overwhelming. A simple conviction can put you behind bars and leave you with a life-long damaging criminal record. It is worth doing everything within your power to build a successful defense. While attempting to defend yourself can leave you vulnerable to prosecution, a skilled lawyer can alleviate your concern. A favorable outcome such as dismissal, reduction of charges or acquittal is greatly increased when you have an experienced counsel fighting for you.
Contact us if you have been charged with:
A drug crime, such as marijuana possession
A violent crime, such as assault
A white collar crime, such as fraud
Criminal law is what we do at The Law Office of Dante Eli Dominguez. We answer essential questions such as: What are possible rewards of a particular course of action? What are the risks? What actions can you take to increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome? We evaluate all aspects during every phase of your criminal case.
When Immigration Status Or A Family Law Matter Is A FactorThe big picture is an essential framework in all our criminal defense matters. This includes a close look at all aspects of an accused individual’s personal circumstances. If there is a risk of deportation or possible impact on a child custody case, we will seek the advice of learned counsel to address that particular aspect of your case. We take immigration status and family law issues into consideration along with all other relevant factors as we inform clients of the likely results of a particular plea.
Post-Conviction Relief When we say we work all phases of criminal cases, this includes skillful post-conviction work, including expungements, appeals and writs of habeas corpus.
We Are Here To Protect Your Rights Our clients’ short-term and long-term well-being is at the center of all our advocacy as criminal defense attorneys. We do not go into a case ready to concede anything.

What to do if you've been charged:
What To Do No doubt, your mind is full of vital questions after you have been charged with a drug crime, a violent crime or a white collar crime. The most critical question is what your life may be like after a conviction – whether or not you spend time in jail or prison.
How to give yourself the greatest chances of a favorable outcome: You have the right to remain silent.
Resist the urge to disclose any excuses or explanations. The police or investigators have a very different frame of reference than you. Attempting to talk your way out of the situation may be detrimental to your case.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Refrain from discussing the details of your legal matter with anyone except your attorney. This includes close friends and family members.
You have the right to an attorney.
Contact a defense lawyer immediately. Get an initial consultation on the calendar as soon as possible.
Keep track of any evidence you believe may help your case, such as contact information for people who may support your alibi.
Be honest and cooperative with your lawyer. Your communications with your attorney are confidential and protected. Clear communication and close collaboration between the two of you will lay the groundwork for a successful defense.
What NOT To Do Do Not try to talk your way out of a problem with police or investigators.
Do Not discuss your case in depth with anyone other than an attorney – not even those people close to you.
Do Not give recorded statements of any kind without a lawyer’s advice and guidance.
Do Not “wait and see what happens next.”
Any one of these actions may lead to a failed defense. You may be subject to stiff fines and penalties, including jail time or a lengthy prison sentence. A criminal record may follow you the rest of your life.

The Law Office Of Dante Eli Dominguez Skillfully Handles Appeals And Writs When we are presented with a criminal conviction for appeal, we evaluate everything regarding the trial leading to that verdict. We gauge every detail of the case to verify it was carried out according to the law. We apply the same detailed scrutiny to prepare for an appeal as we do to prepare for a brand-new defense case.
From Guilty To Innocent – When We Take Your Case For Appeal Our investigation and review is relentless when we prepare to appeal a guilty verdict. Our determined work ethic is a strong asset as we look for reason to doubt the legality of court proceedings. Time and again, The Law Office of Dante Eli Dominguez has uncovered unacceptable elements in a trial leading to a harsh verdict.
The Best Opportunity For A Fresh Start – A Writ Of Habeas Corpus There is still hope even if an appeal is unsuccessful in your case. We are prepared to overturn every stone in search of justification to file a writ of habeas corpus. We may uncover new evidence such as a witness’s recanting of a testimony or new biological evidence. We are prepared to file a writ of habeas corpus with the goal of overturning a felony conviction if we discover a suspect’s constitutional rights were violated during a previous trial.
