A story of struggle and triumph, rags to riches, or starting from nothing and creating something is a tale that many people are familiar with. While many people are convinced that this is no longer a reality in the modern world, Robert Dominguez is proof that it is still possible.
Robert came from Cuba to Miami with nothing but the clothes on his back and a dream to make a better life for himself. His story begins with him constantly working and clawing his way through life to make a name for himself and make a semblance of a living.
“When I was younger, I used to sell ice in school. I used to have to find ways to make money. No matter what. Since a young age, I have been independent as far as my finances and although times have been tough, it shaped me for who I am today. In college, I was a real estate broker and grew to have over 200 real estate agents under me so I learned how to deal with different types of people from all different walks of life,” Robert recounts.
However, just being a real estate broker was not enough for Robert; he wanted to do more. He had always dreamed of owning a business, but was never quite sure what that would be. That is when the idea of becoming a lawyer struck him and he decided to work towards passing his bar.
“I have always wanted to be a business owner. I never really worked for anyone and if I ever did, my hunger to learn usually scared my employers. I knew I would be able to be better and do better and the first day I passed the bar, that’s just what I did. I opened my firm and it’s been history since,” Robert states.
Now, Robert is the founding partner of a multimillion dollar personal injury law firm that has helped settle over 50 million dollars for their clients. They handle cases ranging from injuries; car accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and falls.
“I feel that the legal industry has such a bad reputation. I wanted to be the change and make a difference in people’s lives. I wanted people to say “he really had my back.” I wanted people to be proud of who I was and that their case was rightfully handled with maximum results,” Robert says.
Robert, taking from the lessons he learned early on in his life, is constantly working to meet the demands and needs of all of his customers. This is what separates him and his team from others in the same business: they are constantly putting customers first.
“We work hard and fast. We sometimes work too fast and clients are confused as to how it’s possible. Through hard work and a reputation of not giving up will till the best possible outcome, the defense attorneys know we mean business. We will take a case to trial- even “small” ones. We care about the client and their outcome and we work to achieve the best possible compensation in the most efficient way. We listen to your needs, resolve your property damage issues, and fight for every dollar on the table,” Robert remarks.
Robert has big plans for the future including opening up offices in Georgia and in Texas. To find out more about Robert, follow him on instagram here and check out his website here.
