In the past, he has successfully managed a demanding caseload of plaintiff personal injury and medical malpractice claims against large defendants, including Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Carnival Cruise Lines, Winn-Dixie, and ACE Westchester.

At Dom Law, PA, Dom focuses on his own personal touch, giving every client the attention they deserve; the kind of attention that the bigger Firms and talking heads no longer provide.
