At Lommen Abdo, You Truly Come First

Our client-focused approach puts you, your goals and your hopes for your case at the center of what we do. While we won’t over-staff your legal team, we do draw on the collective knowledge of our team to pursue your goals on your behalf. We bring big-firm knowledge and experience to you and hire attorneys who genuinely care. 

Our Spirit of Collaboration 

Because our clients are the center of our work, we collaborate to ensure the best outcomes. To our clients, it feels as though they have a big firm of attorneys working on their behalf, but they also have direct access to their attorney and don’t need to wade through support staff to get their questions answered. Bottom line? We focus on the efficient delivery of legal services. The cumulative experience of our past careers, community engagement, involvement with cases similar to yours and our team-based focus is unique and benefits you throughout your entire case. 

Caring for Our Clients + Ourselves

From leadership to associates, from shareholders to paralegals and our administrative team, we model a “work to live, not live to work” focus. We believe that being a part of our communities makes us better lawyers, and gives us the experience needed to be creative when it comes to solving complex legal matters. We spend time with our families, engage with local businesses and network with industry professionals, developing relationships – and friendships – that ultimately best serves our clients. 

 

Our History of Success

Lommen Abdo has its roots in the 1940s. It has taken on leadership roles in national anti-trust, mass tort, vaccine, and legal malpractice litigation matters. Once known as an insurance defense firm, over the past three decades its litigation focus has shifted to include commercial litigation, medical malpractice, wrongful death and other complex litigation and appeals.

The firm has also expanded its corporate practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, tax and estate planning practice. It has also expanded the business practice of its Hudson office, which was opened 30 years ago. Through the years, Lommen Abdo has continued to successfully reposition its overall practice with several strategic mergers and lateral hires.
