Jodi Lambert, Esq.

Senoir Counsel

Jodi Lambert grew up in Los Angeles, but left the warm weather behind in order to experience four "real" seasons at the University of Pennsylvania.  She returned to California where she attended the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.  She was admitted to the California State Bar in December 1993, and she has an AV® Rating with Martindale-Hubbell.


Jodi has defended a variety of general liability matters, including product liability, professional liability, and construction defect cases.  She has extensive first chair experience in both bench and jury trials.  Since the late 1990's, she has defended carriers in insurance coverage and "bad faith" matters.  Jodi has argued in the California Court of Appeal and was instrumental in the successful argument of a statutory interpretation case before the California Supreme Court.


Jodi's most recent trial victories include a defense verdict in a premises liability case where the plaintiff (a prospective real estate purchaser) was seriously injured while conducting an unscheduled inspection of Jodi's client's garage, and a plaintiff's verdict in excess of $200,000 in a subrogation action against a general contractor stemming from a destructive house fire caused by the contractor's defective construction of a barbecue enclosure attached to the house.
