This immediate, in-the-trenches experience, coupled with her solid education provided Lambert with exceptional knowledge and skills, propelling her to excellence in her career. It also set a solid foundation for her next career move in 2018 when she decided to go into private practice.
“I started doing federal criminal defense, civil cases, and just a wide range of different civil and criminal defense litigation,” she says. “Being on the other side, so to speak, wasn’t really so different because my beliefs and commitment remain the same. I have always valued our Constitution. As a prosecutor, I valued justice and the rule of law, and it’s not any different on the defense side of the table. “A client has rights, and everything needs to be handled appropriately throughout the course of litigation. I like both sides. No matter which side I’m on, I always prepare the opposing side’s case,” she adds. “It’s greatly satisfying to sit there during trial and know that if I were at the other table my preparation would have been better.”
Lambert’s career has been studded with groundbreaking victories in federal courtrooms. Her legal prowess has resulted in satisfied clients. Lambert’s ability to navigate complex legal terrain and her meticulous attention to detail have been instrumental in these victories.
Lambert’s firm brings a boutique and individualized approach to each of her client matters. Lambert works with top attorneys, experts and specialists, and builds an individualized team for each client to achieve the successful outcome desired. And, although her experience extends to a wide range of legal areas, most of which she’s had ample experience with, she always has her client’s best interest at heart.
“Some attorneys get entrenched in one specialty and don’t have the opportunity to utilize a lot of strategies because they don’t have the experience of handling a wide variety of cases,” she says. “While I’ve done prosecution, defense, and a variety of different specialties, I bring in attorneys on each case as needed that have experience exclusively in those specialties. I build an appropriate team for each case. A lot of times it’s just me, but I think what makes me a great attorney is that I have a lot of experience, a lot of talent, and I have drive. But I don’t have an ego. When I need to bring in a supporting team to give my client the best defense, I do that.”
