“I was referred to the Damiani Law Group by a top criminal defense attorney in southern California when he could no longer represent me due to a conflict of interest.  I had been charged with two felonies by the District Attorney, was named in a civil suit by the San Diego City Attorney and was a witness in a related federal case.  There were already at least a dozen boxes of discovery when the first attorney released me, so I was not happy about starting over with someone new who had to start from the beginning on complex cases that were moving ahead quickly.  As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about.  Lisa Damiani was up to speed in no time and throughout the cases was able to recall facts better than I could.  The bottom line was that she prevailed in every issue that I faced, but the unexpected surprise was how easy Lisa was to work with.  I had experienced hiring a top attorney for another issue and after paying the retainer was referred to a secretary and hardly ever talked to him again.  I have been billed for the time it took to mail a monthly statement to me.  I filed a complaint with the Bar Association on an attorney who did not return phone calls.  My opinion of attorneys in general was not that high.  Very capable assistants were used in limited aspects of my criminal case, but all of their work was reviewed and personally followed up on by Lisa.  When I came into the office for status updates my meetings were with Lisa.  When I left a message or sent an email I would get a response the same day unless she was in court all day.  When things came up that were time-sensitive I even had Lisa’s mobile number to be able to make contact directly.  What other attorney does that?  In the end I felt very fortunate to have been referred to the Damiani Law Group.  Being represented by Lisa Damiani allowed me to go on with my daily life with confidence that my legal issues were being handled.” -Sharon Wilkinson

“When I first contacted Lisa about my case, I was very nervous about getting involved in a dispute with my employer.  But I had a sense that I was not being treated fairly and sought out the Damiani Law Group for legal guidance.  During my first consultation with Lisa, I was very impressed that she took the time to understand all of the facts in my case.  I left that meeting very confident that Lisa and her staff would work hard to protect and assert my rights and help me to reach a fair settlement with my employer.  It was a long process, but Lisa and her staff were always responsive to any questions or concerns I had along the way. In the end, I was extremely satisfied with her representation and the fact that my rights had been protected.

I would absolutely recommend the Damiani Law Group to anyone seeking guidance in an employment dispute.  Lisa is tough but personable, and I am so thankful that I had her in my corner when I found myself in a difficult situation.”


–Matthew Ferguson, San Diego, California

Lisa is what you would expect from a lawyer that has been in the business as long as she has. You know the phrase, you get what you pay for? This is so true on so many levels. Prior to Mrs. Damiani I was referred to a friend of a friend much cheaper that ended up Mal practicing in my case, almost causing a major nightmare. Lisa took my case literally with 2 weeks before the deadline. She came highly recommended to me! – I would like to highly recommend her to anyone that is serious about getting results and want’s them the first time. She started off on the civil side then it moved to criminal and she quickly shifted gears and has been on top of her game keeping me up to date and even contacting me via her personal cell. That is unheard of from an attorney. Results speak for themselves.
