An associate at the Atlanta office of Morgan & Morgan, Miguel A. Dominguez focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, and his experience encompasses civil rights violations as well. Representing clients throughout the greater metropolitan area, he is admitted to practice before all Georgia state courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Georgia, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
A significant portion of Mr. Dominguez\'s clients are people who have incurred economic and noneconomic losses due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties. The types of cases that he has handled on their behalf have included motor vehicle accidents and premises liability, and he has been able to obtain significant compensation through both jury awards and negotiated settlements, including a 2019 award in excess of $10 million after a premises liability trial. His civil rights matters have involved police brutality and wrongful death, and his track record in this area has been equally impressive.
Mr. Dominguez majored in psychology at the University at Buffalo and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2001. After he graduated, he was a social worker at an Atlanta nonprofit organization, providing case management services for homeless and mentally ill clients. Mr. Dominguez then decided to pursue a legal education and enrolled at what was then known as the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and he participated in moot court competitions before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2008. Thereafter, he was a judicial law assistant for a judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals, an assistant district attorney in Rockdale and Clayton Counties and an assistant to the DeKalb County Solicitor-General before entering private practice. Mr. Dominguez is a past president of the DeKalb Lawyers Association.
