Andrew Wellisch & Luisa Alvizar
I wanted to take the time to thank Damiani Law Group and Andrew Hillier for representing me. Everyone at the Firm was very kind, professional and talented. From the first meeting to the end, I felt I was in good hands. I was in a state of shock when I received a summons to appear in court, especially when I had done nothing wrong to warrant the charges against me. I truly felt victimized by the false and unfounded accusations. Having the Damiani Law Group represent me brought a tremendous feeling of peace. Mr. Hillier’s vast knowledge, positive attitude and wise council, relieved me of a great deal of anxiety. I know as an attorney he is doing his job, but I felt he really cared. Mr. Hillier is an outstanding attorney, but even a better man. I thank Mr. Hillier and the Damiani Law Group for all they have done. It gives me peace of mind to know that they are there if this ever comes up again.
I engaged Lisa Damiani very shortly after I received a subpoena from the US Attorney’s Office and a call from the FBI. I was the target of a Federal investigation involving securities and wire fraud. At first, I was extremely lost and confused. I didn’t know how to engage or even look for the proper attorney. My good friends had local recommendations and after meeting with one, he directed me to Lisa. I contacted her as I left his office and we promptly set up an appointment for the next day at her office.
Lisa literally spent hours with me the next day hearing my background, asking questions, and determining my involvement. She explained the process of the Federal system, which I knew nothing about. She explained what could possibly happen – the good, the bad, and the really ugly. After hearing me explain the situation, she concluded that my involvement in this case should not have been as a target, but rather a victim. She very easily understood the events that brought me to this point and saw that the millions of dollars I and my family, friends, and colleagues had invested had been taken from us by a very conniving individual. This individual made it seem as though my initial investment dollars would be rolled into the next company, then into the next company, etc. All the while he made promises of me taking on executive roles at these companies and many other promises. I even invested more money with him based on his sales pitches and promises, including a partnership with him.
Lisa immediately engaged the US Attorney’s office and responded to them on my behalf. I never had to speak with an FBI agent or the US Attorney again. Through meetings with Lisa and Andrew Hillier, we gathered all necessary information in a very detailed way, sorted through each individual document, email, etc., and was prepared ahead of time for all inquiries from the Federal government.
Lisa and Andrew managed very professionally and adroitly to provide all the necessary evidence showing the Federal government and investigating agents that my role in this entire “conspiracy” was that of a victim. Shortly after the evidence was presented, Andrew received word that I was no longer under investigation. This entire experience completely turned my world upside down and it was only through my trust in Andrew and Lisa that the best possible outcome occurred. I am extremely grateful to them and I would recommend them with the most complete confidence.
In 2008, I felt lost due to a labor dispute with a major corporation until I met with Ms. Lisa Damiani, Esq. I learned about Lisa from a well-respected partner of a big law firm who told me to contact Lisa since she was, as he noted, “one of the best attorneys he had ever faced.” The moment I met Lisa, at the initial consultation, I had felt that she was very different from other attorneys. Lisa patiently listened to my story. She really wanted to help me with my case. Lisa asked me questions and gathered all of the facts. Lisa also explained the law to me in a way that was simple and easy for me to understand. She timely returned my calls. Lisa zealously defended me and successfully negotiated a settlement on my behalf that was far greater economically than I could ever have imagined. I am extremely pleased with Lisa’s expertise as an attorney and the manner in which she practiced law, which led to the successful outcome of my case. To this very day, I feel deeply grateful for Lisa’s help. I recommend Lisa to my family and friends. Lisa is as good as it gets.

Before we took Lisa Damiani as our legal counsel, we had consulted with another attorney. He never returned our call. Lisa was recommended by a friend, and after having researched her profile we decided to give her a call. I ended up leaving a message. Lisa called back right away and we were able to speak with her about our case. Ms. Damiani has always along with her staff answered our questions and has returned our calls. She has helped us through a very trying time. She has always been very professional, and caring. It is very important to have a lawyer who will return your calls and listen to what you have to say and address those needs. Ms. Damiani and her staff seem to fit all that criteria. When you are in need of legal counsel, you want someone who will be in your corner, and Lisa Damiani is the one you want.
I really can’t say enough how grateful I am for having Lisa Damiani represent me in my case. She helped me from day one, explaining the procedures and was always ready to answer any questions I had. Although my case was a rather unusual one, Lisa provided me with her care and concern about me, and not just another “case file” that was on her desk. From day one she and her staff were putting that extra mile in my case. In a sense you could say I put my life in her hands. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for the best attorney.
“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.”

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.
When my Mother was let go from her job of 20 years, she was hurt, scared and felt very alone. Not only had she lost her purpose in life, but as a single senior woman, she now had no source of income. Her former employer gave her no advance notice of her dismissal and offered a very small severance package which she could not afford to decline. As the clock was ticking on the expiration of her severance offer, we reached out to Lisa to see if we had any recourse. Lisa immediately went into action and in the end we were able to get my Mom more than quadruple the original severance offered. For a single senior woman, now unemployed, this was a huge relief. This additional money allowed my Mom to transition much easier into retirement on her own terms. I cannot thank Lisa and her staff enough for allowing us to get my Mom the severance that she deserved.”
I have known and worked with Lisa Damiani for almost eight years now. Our working relationship began when Lisa represented me personally in business litigation. Before finding Lisa I had been represented by a large and well-known international law firm. Lisa quickly, efficiently and expertly achieved that which the large firm couldn’t: she settled the case under extremely favorable terms and conditions.
Lisa is able to provide that which larger law firms cannot: the personal attention of a highly experienced lawyer at reasonable rates. Lisa is not only good at what she does; she is also available when needed, and she is personally and integrally involved in every legal matter, large and small.
My experience with Lisa was so good that, when the firm I founded was funded by private equity investors and grew from a staff of three to 180, I continued to call on her. The Damiani Law Group has represented, and continues to represent, APWireless in a variety of employment matters. In the eight years we have worked with Lisa, she has not once failed us. Every single matter has been handled more than capably, efficiently and has led to a favorable result. Both personally and as a CEO and entrepreneur, I recommend Lisa Damiani in the strongest possible terms. You can’t go wrong with Lisa.”
