Biography Overview

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, Mr. 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 the voice of the voiceless.

Mr. Dominguez began his legal career as a law clerk for Judge Anne Elizabeth Barnes of the Georgia Court of Appeals; later becoming a criminal defense attorney, before leaving his practice to become a prosecutor. As a prosecutor, Miguel acquired significant jury trial experience. Despite his tremendous success trying and convicting those individuals terrorizing our 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. He later transitioned to civil practice as defense counsel for several major corporations and insurance companies, which in turn, allowed him to use the knowledge he gained defending them, for the good of the People. As a Plaintiff’s attorney, he now specializes in personal injury and negligent security cases, as wel as civil rights cases. Miguel is most passionate about his work fighting on behalf of the victims of violent crime who have been seriously injured or killed in crime ridden neighborhoods, while apartment complex and motel owners profit.

Mr. Dominguez is an absolute game-changer in the courtroom, but he is equally as fierce out in the community. Always mindful of his own humble beginnings, he 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 by way of having their criminal records expunged. Miguel is also frequently asked to speak at schools and youth detention centers, sharing his experiences as an at-risk youth, lawyer, leader, and father; constantly challenging young people to dream well beyond their immediate circumstances. Miguel has been honored as one of Georgia Trend Magazine’s 40 under 40 Best and Brightest and one of Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars. Above all else, Miguel is a dedicated friend and family man.

Attorney Dominguez is also fluent in Spanish.
