I am glad I chose DGMS for my personal injury case ! Sometimes I would call for update’s multiple times and yet they were patient and understanding. Crystal has done a phenomenal job thus far. Mr. Dominic Z. has done an awesome job as well with follow-up emails and ensuring we get the best results. I look forward to the end result as they are determined to get the best.
This was my first time having to deal with anything legal, they did a very good job, they helped me through the whole process start to finish. Kept me up to date with everything as time went and also didn’t make me feel dumb over a couple very “dumb” questions. Definitely the people I’ll come back to if needed again!
My attorney was/is Dominic Zambelli and from the very start, my experience with him was amazing. He explained what I needed to do for the case, the timeline, and put my mind at ease immediately. Fast forward six months, my case is settled and I am very happy with the result. If you are ever, and I mean EVER, looking for an honest, transparent, and diligent lawyer, call DGM&S and ask for Dominic. You will not be disappointed.
