"I enjoy people! Writing and the written word, analyzing problems, and learning about clients' different businesses is why I practice law."

Client Testimonials

"Ms. Lombino guided the Board of Directors through difficult legal and organizational landmines for five months. She made time for discussing strategies to resolve immediate problems as well as discussing plans for updating policies that would prevent such problems in the future.

Ms. Lombino utilized professional resources when necessary, conferring with other Jaburg Wilk attorneys with specific areas of expertise that provided our organization with a greater depth of legal knowledge." - Board Member, Non-Profit
