Juan came to the United States as a 10-year-old, Spanish-speaking immigrant with his parents and five siblings. His parents’ exemplary work ethic enabled them to overcome grave disadvantages and financial hardships and also provided their children with strong parental role models. All the Dominguez children graduated from college in the United States with Mr. Dominguez earning his Bachelor’s Degree in 1984 from California State University, Long Beach. He then earned a Juris Doctor from the top-ranked University of California Hastings College of the Law in 1987 and opened his law practice that same year.
Before entering law school, Mr. Dominguez worked for several years at the emergency rooms in the major trauma centers at UCLA Medical Center and St. Francis Hospital in Lynwood assisting the seriously injured. There he gained a keen insight into and a deep compassion for the gravely injured. This ingrained compassion for those in need is reflected not only in the thousands of injury cases he has championed, but also in the over 50 charitable causes he supports in the United States and abroad, including charities for scholarships, disadvantaged children, health, the homeless, and others.
In regards to the culture that propels the firm, Mr. Dominguez shares, “I have three ideals I follow: dignity of the individual, excellence and service. I ask all my colleagues and staff to keep these in mind at all times.”
