As founder and managing attorney of Buttitta Law Group, LLC, Dominic heads both the firms’ criminal and civil litigation practice.

Dominic started his legal career in 2007 at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, Criminal Appeals Division, and continued his prosecutorial career at the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office in 2010.  While representing the People of the State of Illinois as an Assistant State’s Attorney, Dominic worked in the traffic, misdemeanor trial, felony review, and felony trial divisions.

In 2013, Dominic co-founded the law firm of Carponelli & Buttitta, LLC.  As a criminal defense attorney, Dominic not only continued his criminal trial work, but further honed his litigation skills by co-heading the firms civil practice.  Dominic actively represented clients in the civil area, including matters related to: Divorce, Family Law, Commercial Litigation, Estate Planning, Real Estate, Foreclosure Defense, and Business Formation.

Subsequently, in 2015, Dominic reformed his legal practice and founded Buttitta Law Group, LLC.  Since such time, Dominic has continued to represent clients in both criminal and civil matters, and has continued to build upon his legal prowess.  Dominic has tried well over fifty (50) cases to verdict before judge or jury, has been recognized as a National Top 100 Trial Attorney, and serves as counsel for a variety of corporations, small and large business entities, executives, as well as countless private individuals that just want a lawyer they can depend on and trust.

Unlike many other attorneys, Dominic is uniquely qualified to handle a variety of legal disputes and strives to approach every case in a bold, aggressive, innovative, and no-nonsense fashion.  He makes it his mission to hold his opponents to their burden, whether it is proof beyond a reasonable doubt in a criminal case or proof by a preponderance of the evidence in civil dispute.

Dominic hails from a family of attorneys, including his two sisters, Angela Buttitta and Dominique Buttitta.  Angela practices law in the City of Chicago in the areas of Family Law and Real Estate, and in 2015, Dominic announced the addition of Dominique as an attorney with his firm.  For Dominic and his family, practicing law isn’t just a career, it’s a way of life.

Dominic is the most unbelievable DUI lawyer I have ever seen. Prior to using Dominic I used two other attorneys to represent me in criminal matters and each of those cases, I was in court for over a year. It was miserable. For my 3rd DUI I used Dominic Buttitta and not only was my license never suspended, but we went to trial within 3 months and I was found NOT GUILTY by a jury! Dominic is unbelievable.

John R., Attorney with Cost Effective Business Solutions
I retained Dominic Buttitta as my attorney for a criminal felony matter and could not be any happier with how he handled my case. I thought I had no options left and felt hopeless… then I met Dominic. He was professional and really knew his stuff at court. He helped me to get my life back on track and for that I cannot thank him enough.
Sam Z., Could not be any happier with this firm
Buttitta Law Group has been representing me on my divorce and I must say that their promise to make this difficult time as smooth and painless a process as possible has absolutely been fulfilled. Both Dominic and Dominique made themselves available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to answer any of my questions throughout the process and it was obvious that they are not the typical lawyers…they actually care. In just 3 months my divorce was finalized, I have been able to start a new life, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Dominic and Dominique.
Chrissy L., The Best Lawyers Around
If you are reading this review you are probably looking for lawyers that are trustworthy, honest and truly listen. You have found the right lawyers. Dom and Dominique are dedicated to their clients and cases. They met with us, discussed our options, and were willing to fight for what is right. I know how you must feel right now concerned and worried, not knowing where to turn. We felt the same way, but just after one conversation with them I knew they were the right lawyers. Their confidence made me confident that we would win, and we did! Highly Recommend!! Give them a call, you will be glad you did!!
