Dominic Callese was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Arizona State University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Justice Studies. Dominic then moved to Houston, Texas to attend the Thurgood Marshall School of Law. 

During law school, Dominic focused strictly on criminal law. He interned with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, gaining insight into how the criminal justice system works. Knowing that he would return to Arizona, he clerked with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office where he developed an understanding of how the prosecutors in Arizona approach different misdemeanors and felony offenses. 

Dominic has always aspired to advocate for the accused. He began his legal career with DM Cantor, which allows him to do precisely that. Dominic embraces challenges and is determined to do whatever it takes to help his clients. 

Dominic is passionate about growth and development not only in his professional career but also in his personal life. Outside the office, he is committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. He usually spends his time in the gym or performing an outdoor activity. Dominic also enjoys spending time with his fiancé and their beloved Maltipoo.
