Before joining ADR Services, Inc., Mr. Lombardi spent 46 years as a trial lawyer handling a wide range of civil matters, with particular emphasis in the fields of product liability, insurance coverage and bad faith, personal and catastrophic injury, and medical and legal malpractice. In addition to evaluating and settling, or otherwise disposing of, hundreds of cases prior to trial, he tried to verdict or judgment, or arbitrated to binding results, over 100 cases including catastrophic injury, wrongful death, automobile crashworthiness, design defect, medical and legal negligence, insurance coverage, and insurance bad faith claims. His trial experience resulted in his election to membership in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) as well as to fellowship in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the International Society of Barristers, and the American College of Trial Lawyers. He also served as appellate counsel on numerous matters resulting in published opinions by either the California Courts of Appeal or the California Supreme Court.
