Los Angeles, the “city of angels,” is synonymous with sun, sand, and Hollywood glamour. With over 4 million residents, L.A. is the second most populous city in the United States—and also one of the most diverse. Unfortunately, L.A. can also lay claim to the title of car accident capital of America, workplace injury leader of California, and dominance in DUI convictions. The qualities that make our metropolis so exciting and robust, can also lend themselves to increased safety hazards in everyday life.
That’s why you need The Dominguez Firm on your side. Our award-winning team of trial lawyers have assisted thousands of accident victims and injured Angelinos to win millions of dollars in compensation—collecting over $750 million* on behalf of our clients since opening business in 1987. Our firm boasts a 96%* success rate in personal injury cases, and we are primed and ready to provide premier representation to all injury victims.
Many large law firms churn through cases and clients as quickly as possible in order to maximize profits. At The Dominguez Firm, we prioritize client service and strive to achieve personal and professional excellence in our relationships with our clients. We want you to feel part of the legal process, and not merely a witness to your claim. As such, we keep you informed every step of the way, and work with you to develop a strategy that fits your needs and priorities. With us, you will not be an anonymous and interchangeable client, but rather an integrated part of our family.
We further aim to be a full-service firm. Most of our attorneys are bilingual or multilingual, allowing us to service nearly all corners of the cultural diversity that so defines Los Angeles. In addition to our excellent trial attorney team, we employ in-house investigators who can respond 24/7 to the scene of an accident, and maintain a roster of eminently qualified professional experts to assist in the technical and factual elements of your case. Need a medical specialist to treat your unique injury? The Dominguez Firm has got you covered.
At The Dominguez Firm, we regard our clients as family. We know how hard it is to recover from a serious injury—made even more difficult with the added stress of a complicated legal process. We aim to unburden you in whatever way we can, by providing the highest quality legal representation with a smile.
The Dominguez Firm believes that two heads are better than one, and many heads are even better! As such, we take a team-oriented approach to the representation of our clients. Each case is handled by a primary attorney, who works closely with our team of highly skilled support staff such as paralegals and legal secretaries. Additionally, each case is regularly reviewed by a senior managing attorney, who brings a wealth of experience and provides crucial case guidance. You’ll enjoy the benefit of our world-class team of legal professionals, without the high costs you may find elsewhere. Of course, the MVP of our team is always the client—and we want to make sure you bring home the best results possible!

The trust and overwhelming satisfaction of our client base is the most significant honor that we enjoy.
No Recovery, No Fee
Many people believe that hiring a lawyer will cost them a small fortune, and worry they’ll be on the hook for thousands of dollars in lawyers fees even if they don’t recover any compensation in their case. Unfortunately, with other firms this is often the case. However, at The Dominguez Firm, we take cases on a contingency fee basis.
So how does a contingency fee work? Rather than billing our clients by the hour, as is the case with most conventional billing arrangements, we take cases at no cost up front. Instead, in our client agreement we will stipulate a certain percentage of your compensation award that the firm will collect, only after you have won your case. In other words, our fee is proportionate with your compensation, and we only get paid if and when you do.
This means that we are accountable foremost to you, and not to our own bottom line. This also means that in signing with our firm, you take no financial risk, and will only reap benefits. We strive to take the stress and anxiety out of the legal claims process for our clients, and in instituting our No Fee, No Recovery philosophy, we aim to relieve some of the financial burden that our clients face. Everyone deserves justice, regardless of their income or financial situation, and at The Dominguez Firm we firmly believe that increasing access to justice is fundamental to ensuring fair outcomes.
