Miguel A. Dominguez


Miguel A. Dominguez

Advocacy is more than just aligning yourself with a cause-it is making an impact on the lives of those that need it the most. Growing up in the South Bronx, MIGUEL A. DOMINGUEZ developed a keen perception of the systemic cycles that prevent communities from enjoying a safe environment in which to prosper and raise children. Fueled by his past experiences and driven by his desire to do justice, he rose from difficult circumstances and worked tirelessly to position himself to become a voice of the voiceless.

Mr. Dominguez began his career as a social worker serving the mentally ill and homeless in Atlanta. After law school, his legal career began as a law clerk for then Chief Judge Anne Barnes of the Georgia Court of Appeals. Upon passing the Bar, he opened his own criminal defense practice. He eventually left his practice to become a state prosecutor.

As a prosecutor, Mr. Dominguez acquired significant jury trial experience. Despite his tremendous success trying and convicting those individuals terrorizing the community, he acquired a reputation for being a conscientious prosecutor, discerning in creating opportunities for those in need of a second chance. His work as a prosecutor spans several metro Atlanta counties, including Rockdale, DeKalb, and Clayton; allowing him the honor and distinction of becoming the first Latino prosecutor in the history of those judicial circuits.

Mr. Dominguez later transitioned into civil practice, joining Thomas Kennedy Sampson and Tompkins LLP as defense counsel for several major corporations and insurance companies. Thereafter, he moved to the Plaintiff’s side, specializing in personal injury, negligent security and civil rights cases as a trial attorney with Morgan & Morgan, where he carved out a reputation for turning traditionally under-valued cases into seven figure verdicts.

During his time at Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Dominguez became an equity partner and lead the firm’s Georgia trial team, trying cases and supervising trials all over the state of Georgia. He later founded the Dominguez Law Firm, specializing in personal injury and civil rights cases and assisting other law firms in litigating and presenting their cases at trial. Mr. Dominguez is an absolute game-changer in the courtroom, but he is equally as fierce out in the community.

Known as an attorney-activist, Dominguez served as an advisor to Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms as a member of her Progressive Agenda Working Group and as co-chairman of her Commission on Criminal Justice Reform. Mr. Dominguez has also worked closely with DeKalb Volunteer Lawyers Foundation providing pro bono legal services for victims of domestic violence.

Always mindful of his own humble beginnings, Mr. Dominguez provides pro bono legal services to youthful offenders, using his experience as a prosecutor to provide at-risk youth a second chance at becoming productive and successful members of society.

Miguel is also frequently asked to speak at schools, detention centers, and law seminars and share his experiences as an at-risk youth turned lawyer, trial expert, and leader; constantly challenging young people and lawyers to dream well beyond their immediate circumstances. He also serves on a number of boards, to include the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Black Man Lab.

Mr. Dominguez has been admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States. He is also a past-president of the Dekalb Lawyers Association. Miguel has been recognized as:

+ Georgia Trend Magazine’s Best and Brightest
+ National Bar Association’s Nation’s Best Advocates
+ DeKalb Lawyers Association’s Legal Warrior
+ Latino Lawyers Magazine Top Latino Lawyers in the Country
+ Super Lawyers
+ American Lawyer Magazine’s Trailblazer of the South and has been listed amongst their annual Top Verdicts in Georgia.

Above all else, Miguel is a dedicated and trusted leader, friend, and family man.
