I spent 12 years of my childhood as a concert violinist, so I learned the values of hard work and self-discipline from an early age. I apply that work ethic to my legal practice. I find it very gratifying to put my research, writing, and analytical thinking skills to use addressing clients’ legal challenges. Although I’m detail-oriented, I also know how to manage the big picture, and I’m told I’m very good at thinking several steps down the road.
Taylor Lombardo brings an outstanding work ethic and notable professionalism to her litigation practice. Focusing on financial services litigation, Taylor represents national banks, lenders, servicers, and others in state and federal court. In particular, she advises clients in claims brought under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA)/ Regulation Z, and related state laws.
At her previous firm, Taylor served employers, adjusters, individual plaintiffs, and private companies while gaining valuable hands-on experience in discovery, depositions, motion practice, and presenting arguments in court. Each situation taught her how to adapt and apply herself to varied circumstances and enabled her to grow as an attorney. Taylor offers a strong knowledge base in maritime law, including several matters under the Longshore Workers Compensation and Defense Base Act. She’s well-prepared to take on a variety of issues and legal areas.
Motivated, personable and enthusiastic, Taylor advances her clients’ cases by drawing on her ability to identify and map key facts and issues and predict the opposition’s arguments to devise effective advocacy plans and prevailing narratives. Taylor believes in frequent and effective communication and treats every client, no matter how big or small, with the utmost respect.
During law school, Taylor was a member of both the trial advocacy program and the Maritime Law Journal and worked as a teaching assistant for a legal writing course.
