Senior Female Tourist in NYC successfully represented by Matthew Lombardi
I give a 5-star rating to Mr. Matthew Lombardi, Esq., because he is a very professional and dedicated lawyer! I worked with Mr. Lombardi because he represented my aunt (a very senior lady) in a complex personal injury case against a NYC yellow cab company. My aunt was a visitor in NYC from abroad who was severely injured by a yellow cab while crossing a street. The case was complicated because it involved 1) a non-resident of the United States with no local health insurance and 2) a yellow cab company, which is notorious for being extremely difficult and pesky to work with. Despite that, Mr. Lombardi did not hesitate to take up the case and diligently worked till its conclusion, which culminated in a very favorable settlement for my aunt. His best quality is his tenacity in negotiations – he will not shy away to go to court if the other side is obstinate and he cleverly uses argumentative evidence to get an outcome in the best interest for his clients. He is very expedient in his work and moved our case as quickly as possible through the court system, shortening the overall length to completion, which in many such cases can take 3+ years in NYC. Mr. Lombardi stayed on top of communicating with me (since I was in a role of a translator to my aunt) and I always knew what stage the case is at and what is expected next. Mr. Lombardi explained everything very clearly and when deposition time came, he met and worked with my aunt for several days to prepare her for questioning before she felt comfortable about what to expect and what to focus on. Overall, Mr. Lombardi led this case with a tight grip and the positive results only speak for the effort and dedication he put into it. I found him to be a lawyer who loves his job, he is very personable and high-spirited, and I think he should be the first-choice for anyone who has been injured in an accident.

Exceptional with Personal Injury Plaints
Throughout my experience with Mr. Lombardi, he offered a very professional and personal dynamic in the resolution of my case. Comprehensive in his efforts, he did a fantastic job with helping me better understand the case's nature and our intentions within it. Mr. Lombardi was also receptive to my schedule and made himself available and flexible. His adeptness within law and negotiation proved absolute, as he won the lawsuit that I had hired him for and gained fruitful return for myself, which I was able to apply to my rehabilitation. My highest regards for him and his firm.
