While a litigation practice necessarily involves preparing cases for trial, Mary Lombardo always keeps her clients’ ultimate goals in mind and focuses on crafting creative solutions beyond litigation. Should litigation become necessary, however, she offers her vast experience as a trial attorney, including jury trials and bench trials as well as arbitration and administrative proceedings. Mary also has successfully resolved matters at all stages of the litigation process through alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. She concentrates her practice on complex commercial disputes, including real estate, shareholder disputes, contract, employment, estates, negligence and fraud matters. She also represents employees in workplace disputes relating to the rate and sufficiency of employee compensation.

Since 2011, Super Lawyers magazine has recognized Mary as a Rising Star and, in recent years, as a Super Lawyer among Maryland attorneys. She is active and serves on several committees for the Bar Association of Montgomery County, the State Women’s Bar Association (WBA) and the Montgomery County Chapter of the WBA. Mary served as the Public Relations Chair for the WBA’s 2010 Triennial Auction, which raised funds for the organization’s charitable work. She also has participated for several years as a judge in Montgomery County’s High School Mock Trial Competition.

Prior to joining Stein Sperling, Mary practiced in a boutique Georgetown law firm specializing in federal class action litigation throughout the United States. Before that, she practiced at a large international law firm where she was a senior associate in their Commercial Litigation group. Mary is a trained court-appointed Child Advocate and has represented abused and neglected children and performed pro bono immigration work.

While in law school, Mary served as a judicial intern to a New York Supreme Court Judge and assisted with civil and criminal matters in the office of the Attorney for the Town of North Hempstead. She also participated in the Washington Semester Program at the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, D.C.

Outside the office, Mary enjoys horseback riding and swimming.
