I have been practicing personal injury law since 1981. If you have a personal injury, chances are I have represented 100 or more people with the same type of claim. Car accident, truck, motorcycle, ATV, bicycle, pedestrian, construction sites, trip-fall, slip-fall, semi-truck, interstate accidents and many more events, I’ve handled them all. We also handle denied life insurance claims. Literally thousands have come to the Lombardi Law Firm for help. We have settled way over $30 million dollars in claims.
I grew up in Bristol, Rhode Island, and then moved to Iowa to finish undergraduate work as a psychology department major at the University of Iowa. From there I attended Drake University Law School and then headed north to Waterloo where for five years I learned how to practice law. Law school teaches you how to think like a lawyer, but how to practice takes good mentoring. And to survive in this business you need common sense, intuition and the willingness to fight for your clients.
Outside of work, my life has been one of adventure. I’ve been to Mt. Everest Base Camp in Nepal, Mt. Elbrus in Russia, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa; to the Swiss and French Alps and to Aconcagua in Argentina/Chile in South America as well. I have ridden at the south end of northbound cattle in Montana and Wyoming.
This firm will never be a volume law firm. We will always be here representing clients as if they mattered. The workers who built this country and who made it great are my clients. They are men and women of the construction trades and the American workforce. They pull the laboring oar in order to give us a better life. The idea of hard work to earn a wage hasn’t changed.
We try cases. We represent people with personal injury problems.
I would love to discuss helping you with your problem. If you have a serious problem then call me or write to me through my web site. If you want to know more about me, go to my website.
or email me at or call
If this sounds like something you need, then call us to find out if we can help you.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Car Accident
Steve and his team provided written and oral education on how the lawsuit and mediation would proceed against the drunk driver who rear ended me. I felt included in the legal process as he provided options when it came time for settlement with pros and cons I needed to consider. He and his legal team were available for questions.

Our case was taken on by Mr. Lombardi
We knew in the beginning that it was not going to be an easy case. From the very beginning Mr. Lombardi explained to us what we should expect in terms of time, reaction from the other parties, and feelings that we would most likely have to come to terms with. Good news or bad news, he spoke directly and honestly with us at all times. There were no unrealistic expectations. Mr. Lombardi let us vent our frustrations, have our melt downs - he knew (and warned us) that we would have them. His staff was good about calling to update us when there were updates to be had. They were friendly and helped us along quite a bit. For us, and for our personal situation, Lombardi Law Firm was the perfect fit.

"I am in the rare position to know Steve personally, professionally and have had him represent me in a personal injury case. As a practicing attorney I can tell you that I've yet to meet anyone who is more prepared. Steve has practiced for over 30 years and he still refers to himself as a student of the law. He's an absolutely tireless worker. If there's a complicated question you can rest easy knowing that he won't until he finds a solution."
