Kind, Knowledgeable and Fair
We have found Judith Lambert through internet search and also based on the favorable reviews we saw on the Avvo site. We were specifically looking for a local attorney with expertise in complex international tax matters for private people. Ms. Lambert's office was very quick at following-up to schedule an initial phone consultation where she displayed great listening skills and answered all questions with care . Within weeks of hiring her, we had a clear progress plan that also involved Ms. Lambert communicating with our accountant. Anyone who has been through issues with the IRS know how stressful it can be. It is a powerful institution that one can feel very small and helpless against, and most often, an experienced and accessible tax professional will be crucial for the best possible outcome. Not only does Ms. Lambert possess vital international taxation skills, but she has also a calm demeanor, making her very comfortable to work with. She has an open mind, welcomes input from clients and does further research if needed. Ms. Lambert is kind, but please don't mistake this beautiful quality with weakness. She has also a very firm and straightforward no-nonsense attitude, and we feel confident that she can be a tough attorney, defending her clients with fearless devotion whenever necessary. Do yourself a favor and contact Ms. Lambert if you struggle with international tax returns, which can be beyond complicated, even for seasoned tax professionals. She has what it takes to help you make things right with the IRS. Her rates are quite reasonable too and without any big surprises on the final invoice. We feel grateful for the work Judith Lambert has done for us, and we can highly recommend her.

Results oriented attorney
I usually do not write reviews. However, I would be remiss in not reaching out on behalf of Ms. Judith Lambert. Ms. Lambert has helped me in a couple of legal matters. She was a key resource in helping me get my issues resolved. She is quite knowledgeable, analyzed my cases and offered sound legal advice. I also witnessed her interacting with a couple of other attorneys in my case and her professionalism and constructive style were quite impressive! While she cannot undo the past, she will diligently work to get your issue(s) behind you. While I hope I do not need her help again, if others need legal help, engaging Ms. Lambert early on would be a wise move.

Honest, Trustworthy, and Held to the Utmost Regard in the Tampa and Brandon Communities
I have worked with Judith Lambert in a variety of legal matters and have gained invaluable knowledge experience from her 20 years of business and tax experience. Judith has a knack for aggressively handling challenging corporate, tax, estate and litigation cases while maintaining the utmost care and concern for the individual needs of her clients. I have personally referred Judith to my personal family members and peers and to this day I still receive personal phone calls and cards thanking me for her hard work and dedication, and for putting the client at ease during some of their personal and difficult situations. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone that is looking for a honest and straightforward representation with proven results.

Personal and Business Multiple Skills. I have used for both myself and my clients.
I have worked with Ms. Lambert in a variety of ways. We have a Financial Advisory business and need to often refer clients for various legal services. We have used her for Trust, Wills, Sale of Business agreements, Helping set up new corporations and LLC's, and helping elderly clients with required services. We have NEVER had a complaint from any of our clients. I have also used her for personal services.

Tax sharp, business savvy, and one of our greatest assets
Would recommend her and have. We started working with Judy in 2007 and I would not consider looking elsewhere for a business attorney. Judy took our 30-plus year business from a C-Corp to an LLC, at my great resistance to change, and it was the best thing we ever did. I find her tax knowledge and how an issue may or may not affect our business from a liability or tax perspective a great asset. She is our attorney of record, has provided expert advice on two business property purchases and closings while representing our interest as they were her own. She represented our son when he purchased his first home as well. She is currently making great progress at correcting a national trademark infringement for us, took care of a problematic vendor who was running up bills on us but not returning a service, she regularly provides council for our business matters, and takes care of the legal language we need on our contracts. My previous experience with attorneys dragging issues out that ran up fees at my expense made we hesitant to seek advice. Judy is fair, prompt and honest. We speak often, sometimes multiple times a week, and I am never concerned that what I pay for her services is not of great value.

Business Attorney | Oct 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I first met Judy because she is the Treasurer of the Brandon Bar Association. During my work with her on the Board I have come to know that she is great at managing our finances and accountings and she is a person of her word. She is someone we can count on to always do what she says she will do. I have also had the opportunity to observe her while she spoke on tax issues for free to local residents at the Brandon Bar's Ask-A-Lawyer program, and I was able to see that she is very knowledgeable on the subject and is also very good at explaining it to people who may not be. I would absolutely recommend Judy Lambert."
