Prior to working in law, Dominique worked as a teacher. She began her legal career as a judicial law clerk in both trial and appellate courts. As a teacher, she gained experience directly counseling children and parents through family transitions, understanding proper and effective communication between children and adults—which has helped shape her career in family law.
