CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Some clients feel compelled to tell us we are doing things right. When that happens we may pass it on to you. We are not always able to assist everyone who requests our services. Some potential clients don't have a case that we can recommend. That doesn't mean we don't respect their right to pursue and to have a case review. We strive to educate even when we are unable to assist them legally by taking their case.

Our clients are and will remain important to us as human beings. We appreciate the civil justice system is not able to do everything for everyone. Money damages are not the complete answer to anyone's losses. There is the emotional side of those losses which we recognize and try to assist you with the necessary emotional adjustments.

Here is what a few of our clients have written to us.

  • The Lombardi Law Firm helped an Iowa employee win his unemployment appeal.

    A recent client came to us after his employer terminated him without giving a concrete reason for doing so at the time of termination, yet stating in the fact-finding interview that he engaged in misconduct.  The initial fact-finder denied this person benefits due to this allegation of misconduct.  He then came to us to help him in his appeal.  We assist various Iowa employees like him win their unemployment appeals in cases of alleged misconduct and we can help you reach a favorable outcome too.   "I found Steve and Katrina online and I am glad I did.  My former employee was making it difficult to get my deserved unemployment benefits.  After a meeting with them, I was put on the right path to get things corrected.  They are easy to talk to and understand the difficulties involved with these situations.  Highly recommend their services."

  • Wrongful death? A minor? What we do in litigation is not always about money. More important when your loved on dies you want straight answers. And that is more important than any money.

    Twelve years have passed, and I assure you my young Jerrica is not turning in her grave. As I age I come to realize more and more just how far people will go to defend a wrong. I did not tell anyone that it was about money, Jourdan was not there the night that Jerrica cut her foot at our home and there was no need for us to lie about anything. We accepted what the courts handed us and we picked up what pieces we had left of our life and began the journey of trying to find a way to build a life in this "Jerrica's gone" life. It hasn't been easy and it took time to be able to forgive all of the "misinformation" that was given by a family that I unfortunately thought my daughter would be safe with. In twelve years I've not bashed anyone to the media nor have I used any of my time healing to condemn the defendants; not because I don't believe that the actions and decisions that ended my daughters life were, in fact, completed with no regard to her health and welfare. The reason is she did no wrong, we wanted the person who was found responsible (according to the courts) for Jerrica's death to know what she did, to admit the wrong and to take responsibility for the life that ended before it had begun really. As you can see by that above message, and I have known by the emails, facebook posts and whispers...even 12 years later...that while I will continue to heal, and you Steve did get us the piece of the puzzle that we needed the very most - her being found responsible ... the story can't end there, it will never be allowed to. Thank you for posting the kindnesses that you did about Jerrica, it does my heart good to know that she has her own little fan club in you and in a way she touched you as she did so many others. Thanks for all you continue to do for people like my family, that seek justice and come to find out that you will do more than that, you will leave them with a sense of peace that is so very important in beginning to heal.

  • In this Iowa Board of Nursing licensing case we assisted this nurse with an application problem.

    I hired Steve to help me with a licensing problem I had with the Iowa Board of Nursing. He and his staff were efficient with how they worked my case and his charges were fair and reasonable. He worked hard to help me and it eased the fears I had going into the process. His assurances helped with my frustration with the charges the IBN threatened to bring against me. Along the way he took the time to fully explain the process and to help me understand what might happen. In the end we worked out a settlement. I would recommend him to other nurses and licensed professionals who have problems with the Iowa Board of Nursing or any other Iowa licensing board. 

  • Email: Message: Thanks so much for answering my question about the length of time on my pi case.

    Lawyers often answer questions on free Q&A sites. It is pretty much a thankless job. But every once in a while one of those people taking gives back just a little bit. Here is one such lady. Email: Message: Thanks so much for answering my question about the length of time on my pi case. Debra: You're welcome. It's seldom someone writes to thank us for answering these questions. The fact it's for free makes those who take without saying thank you that much harder to appreciate. So I say you are welcome.  Stephen D. Lombardi Attorney and Real Estate Broker

  • Steve and his staff worked very hard on our case and the results showed it.

    I just want to say if there is anyone working in or through Iowa who gets hurt and needs a great lawyer to fight, hire Steve Lombardi. In my opinion he and his staff are the best people to help. I was driving a semi-truck on I-80 in the Davenport area when I was involved in an accident. Several people died and I was hurt. Steve came to my aid and worked out a settlement we were very satisfied with. He flew to several places to investigate the case, took depositions and hired experts. My case involved another trucker distracted by a cell phone who caused a multi-car rear end accident. Steve is a fighter you won’t be disappointed in. Also, I want to thank you for the real estate advice. You encouraged us to do something with the settlement money to better our lives. We did, I just bought 2 houses; one, my family and I live in and the other I rent out. We are looking at purchasing an apartment building with 4 units and maybe one more house after that. PS: How do I post brag about your good work? Todd and Terry New Jersey and Ohio

  • The reason that I am contacting you is because you gave the eight simple rules to follow for depositions. Then you gave a test question to see if the reader understood these rules.

    I have been goggling information as that is my only resource. I will have a deposition where I am terrified. I am pro se for many reasons and I do not know how to handle the deposition or what to expect. I stumbled upon your website and found some valuable information. I want to thank you for taking time to post this information. I know that you are a personal injury lawyer and that my case is based on discrimination in employment under ADA. So I realize that you probably would not be interested in my case. The reason that I am contacting you is because you gave the eight simple rules to follow for depositions. Then you gave a test question to see if the reader understood these rules. It was stated that we could answer the test question and e-mail the answer that we would give and then send the answer to you; you would e-mail us with the correct answer. I am very interested if I answered correctly. I am glad I found your website with the deposition information. Thanks! [Name withheld by Steve due to ongoing litigation.]

  • I do agree with what you say, but believe it also takes a lot more than just hanging around with the right people; although that is a very important component. The right mind set, skill set, a plan, execution, discipline and perseverance all combined are necessary components. I do like your blog.

  • Your 8 deposition rules and 1 simple question are far wiser than anything else I've read and easy to remember. Thanks!

    Steve, I really enjoyed your 8 points regarding depositions and your earthy tone. I have a good attorney. I just like to study on my own too. My case is in the southern USA, involving a relative who suffered a brain injury in a car accident. Your suggestions are the most helpful. Thanks! D-FL.
