Our experienced and knowledgeable team at Dominiack Legal Services, LLC provides quality legal representation to clients in the areas of family law, personal injury, and collections. While we provide the expertise and skill of a large law firm, it is delivered with the attention to personal service more typically associated with a small firm. Our South Bend law firm limits our caseload because we would rather provide exemplary service to a smaller number of clients than provide average service to a large number of clients. Because of the nature of the types of legal issues that we handle, we recognize that many of our clients are dealing with severe financial and/or emotional challenges and in many cases physical challenges as well.
Julie Dominiack became an attorney because of a firm belief that the legal profession should be about helping clients solve problems and improve their lives. This problem solving orientation is a fundamental part of her South Bend law firm’s philosophy. She frequently employs effective negotiation and alternate dispute resolution (ADR) approaches to achieve cost-effective dispositions to her clients’ cases while minimizing the potential anxiety and financial hardships that may be experienced by her clients.

South Bend Personal Injury Claims
Julie handles the full range of personal injury matters on behalf of South Bend injury victims that have suffered severe physical, emotional and financial hardships caused by the negligent or intentional wrongful conduct of others. While we cannot restore a client’s ability to walk or give someone back the companionship of a loved one, we can represent you in a personal injury or wrongful death action so that you can seek the financial means to provide for your family. Some of the types of personal injury cases that we handle include the following:
Motor Vehicle Accidents: There are millions of motor vehicle accidents annually involving all forms of motor vehicles, including cars, SUVs, tractor-trailers, motorcycles, buses, bicycles and even pedestrians. Tragically, many of these car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents are the product of drivers that are not paying attention to the road or violating basic traffic safety laws. Some of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents in South Bend and throughout Indiana include drunk drivers, distracted drivers, speeding drivers and similar forms of unsafe operation of a motor vehicle. At Dominiack Legal Services, LLC, we can handle communications and negotiation with the insurance company so that you can focus on your recovery.
Premises Liability Claims: While property owners generally have an obligation to keep their premises reasonably safe or warn those who come on there property of hidden dangers, the scope of this duty can vary based on a number of factors. Premises liability cases often turn on the specific facts of the case, including the type of property, the reason the visitor is on the property, the nature of the hazard, the property owner’s awareness of the hazard and other factors. Whether you are injured in a slip and fall, dog attack, pool or spa entrapment accident, construction site injury or other accident, our experienced South Bend premises liability law firm can investigate the facts surrounding your injury and advise you regarding your legal rights and options.
Construction Accidents: There are few South Bend work environments that are more filled with dangers than construction sites. The construction industry has the highest rate of life-altering accidents and fatalities of any occupation. There are a virtually endless number of accidents that can lead to debilitating injuries, such as trench collapses, excavator accidents, falls from scaffoldings or ladders, electrocution from contact with power lines, heavy machinery accidents, occupational illnesses from hazardous substances and many more. Litigation of a construction accident requires unique handling because of the sometimes shadowy relationships between entities on a site and the quickly changing environment. While you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits from your employer’s insurance, these benefits may be woefully inadequate to compensate you for all of your injuries. Our experienced construction accident team often pursues a personal injury lawsuit against other responsible parties to supplement our client’s workers’ compensation claim.
Defective Products: When you purchase a toy for your child or a laptop computer, you have a right to assume that your children will not be exposed to lead poisoning and that you will not be burned by an exploding laptop battery. With a growing number of products being important from foreign countries like China with minimal safety standards, the risk of being injured by a defective product is increasing. If a poorly made or inadequately tested product injures you, you may have a right to pursue a claim against anyone in the chain of production.
South Bend Family Law Cases
Marital Dissolution (Divorce): When you are facing the prospect of divorce, you may have serious concerns about the future. Most parties to a divorce worry about their future financial stability and their relationship with their children. South Bend divorce attorney Julie Dominiack employs skillful negotiation to diffuse conflict and reach amicable agreements when possible. When this is not possible, she aggressively advocates for the best interest of her clients and their children when seeking a resolution of issues like child custody, visitation, alimony (spousal support), child support, equitable distribution of property and other divorce related issues.
Paternity Cases: Whether you are a parent seeking to establish a parental relationship to obtain child support or to obtain custody and visitation rights, Julie Dominiack can represent you in defining your parental rights and obligations. If there is a question regarding paternity, we can obtain paternity testing. Even if there is no disagreement about parentage, we can ensure that your rights are protected regarding custody and child support.
Modifications: Our South Bend family law firm works diligently to develop marital settlement agreements that form the foundation of stable lasting divorce judgments. Despite these efforts, sometimes unanticipated substantial changes make it necessary to seek modifications of divorce or paternity judgments. Julie offers an honest assessment of your changes of obtaining a modification so that you can make an informed decision about whether the likelihood of success justifies the expense of pursuing the modification.
Enforcement: When your spouse refuses to pay child support, alimony or denies court ordered terms of your parenting plan, you may seek enforcement through a contempt proceeding. Our South Bend family law firm represents those who cannot obtain voluntary compliance with court orders. If you prevail in a contempt proceeding, most times the court will order the other party to reimburse you for your attorneys’ fees.
If you are facing serious challenges and need legal representation or advise, South Bend attorney Julie Dominiack provides carefully considered legal advise and effective legal representation when pursuing the best possible outcome for her clients. We are firmly dedicated to providing a high level of personal service while handling your personal injury, family law or bankruptcy matter.
