MEET YOUR ATTORNEY DOMENIC J. CELESTE, ESQ.
Having the opportunity to help those who need it the most is what keeps me going every day. It’s what drives me to be a better attorney, to be a better person.
Life, Education, & Practice
Domenic J. Celeste, Esq. has lived in sunny Jupiter, Florida his entire life. Growing up around the law, Domenic was destined to be an attorney, but that wasn’t always the case.
“I was always fascinated with buildings and structures and wondered how they were built, so, after high school, I decided to go to college to find out.” Domenic attended undergrad in Bristol, Rhode Island at Roger Williams University, where he played varsity lacrosse and graduated with a BS in Construction Management and a minor in Business. Unfortunately, after graduation, Domenic never was able to utilize his degrees.
“I graduated in 2009. The economy had just tanked, and construction projects had all but dried up, so no one was hiring a fresh construction management graduate with zero experience. I couldn’t find a job and had to make a decision as to what I was going to do next.” Domenic took a year off while making that decision, and, during that year, coached varsity lacrosse at Benjamin High School, who won its first lacrosse State Championship in the school’s history during Domenic’s time coaching. “It was a great accomplishment and a valuable experience, but I knew I wanted to do more than coach. This is when I decided to go to Law School.”
Domenic attended Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida, where, in 2013, he both graduated with his Juris Doctorate degree and passed the Florida Bar Examination in the same year. “I was lucky because, after I graduated, I knew I had a job lined up at my father’s law firm, which is where I fell in love with the practice of law and helping those that were injured by no fault of their own.”
Domenic has exclusively practiced accident/injury law his entire career, helping those injured on the job in Workers’ Compensation cases and those injured due to the negligence of another in Personal Injury cases. Domenic has also practiced Social Security law as well.
Domenic’s interests outside of the practice of law include working out, running, swimming, watching European Football (Go, Chelsea FC!), woodworking/refinishing furniture, computers, and spending time with his family and friends. Domenic has been married since 2013, has two beautiful little boys, and is the co-guardian of his teenage niece with his wife.
