Dominique A. Buttitta provides legal services in both the transactional and litigation arenas offered by the firm. For over fifteen years, Dominique has worked both in house and at law firms as an attorney with privately owned businesses and their owners in aspects related to corporate and business transactions, asset protection planning, complex business litigation, commercial and residential real estate matters, estate planning, and probate.

Dominique’s real estate practice spans from aspects related to residential and commercial development to handling acquisitions, zoning and land use regulations, financing and leasing, as well as, commercial and residential closings. She is also a licensed Illinois real estate managing broker and utilizes this knowledge in her capacity as an attorney to ensure that buyers and sellers she represents have a smooth residential or commercial closing process.

Her accounting background and MBA add value in her ability to develop and implement creative and viable solutions for individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses alike. She sits on the Board of Directors of two not-for-profit organizations, was named a “Rising Star” by legal peers for three consecutive years in SuperLawyers® Magazine and Chicago Magazine, a distinction reserved for the top 2.5% of Illinois lawyers under the age of 40. Leading Lawyers, a division of Law Bulletin Publishing Company, named Dominique to its 2018 and 2019 inaugural list of Emerging Lawyers. That honor is limited to less than 2% of lawyers in Illinois.

Dominique recently worked in house for Rocky Wirtz, best known as the principal owner of the Chicago Blackhawks and head of Wirtz Corporation with interests in insurance, beverage distribution, banking, and real estate. She is proud to work with her brother, Dominic J. Buttitta, Jr., at the firm working as a team capitalizing on each other’s unique skill sets. Dominique’s careful and intellectually honest practice style helps to avoid unnecessary hostility in some otherwise volatile areas of law. She is dedicated to solving problems and obtaining successful results in an aggressive yet cost effective manner to meet the needs of her clients.

Dominic and Dominique pride themselves on the fact that their names may be easy to remember, but their work is hard to forget. Their sister, Angela, also practices law in the Chicagoland area exclusively in the area of family law. For the Buttitta siblings, great lawyering runs in the family.

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!!
