HKQ Firm News

Michael A. Lombardo, III – Hometown, Pittston

The Lombardo family and Pittston – synonymous. You can’t think of one without the other. When you talk to Attorney Michael Lombardo, it’s clear that no one loves his hometown more than he does.

 Attorney Lombardo’s family has a long, founding history in the town where he was born, raised and continues to live and serve. In the Early 1900’s Attorney Lombardo’s paternal grandfather immigrated to Pittston from Calabria, Italy, to work in the booming coal industry as Pittston was centered at the heart of the anthracite coal region.

Pittston also became an active railroad center in response to transporting coal out of the area. The town was home to many industries including metals, plastics, paper products, electrical equipment and beverages. For more than 50 years (the 1930’s through the 80’s) Pittston emerged as a national center for clothing manufacturing.

Generations of the Lombardo family held leadership and community service positions that helped the town of Pittston flourish into a community that is ethically rich in tradition, the arts, and economic diversity. 

The tight-knit Lombardo family would do anything for their hometown, including putting their lives on the line. Attorney Lombardo’s cousin, John, was a firefighter that gave his family, his town and his profession his all. When John lost his life in the line of duty to a devastating fire, Attorney Lombardo and his entire family felt a devastating loss. This loss was instrumental in his decision to become a Personal Injury Lawyer, and pivotal to his involvement in the community. In honor of his cousin, Lombardo is a member of the Greater Pittston Regional Ambulance Association and the Pittston City Fire Department, where he continues to serve on the board of directors. He is an active firefighter and is a state-certified emergency medical technician.

Attorney Lombardo is currently the Vice-Chairman of Pittston City Council. Formerly a president of the Greater Pittston YMCA, he continues to be active in the organization. He is also involved in numerous other community groups such as Leadership Wilkes-Barre, the Wilkes-Barre chapter of UNICO, Knights of Columbus (Third Degree), the Italian American Association of Luzerne County and the Pittston Tomato Festival Committee. He is a member of the St. Joseph Marello Parish community in Pittston.

His accomplishments as an attorney have been consistently recognized by his peers, having been selected each of the last six years as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® Rising Star. Additionally, he was recently named to the National Trial Lawyers "Top 40 Under 40" list. He received numerous academic awards while attending law school at The Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law. He is also an honors graduate of King's College.

Attorney Michael Lombardo resides in Pittston, the town he loves to call home.

As Hourigan, Kluger and Quinn addresses the concerns raised by COVID-19, the health and safety of our clients, employees and friends of the firm remain our top priority.

These are very difficult and scary times and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and symptom free. We recognize that so many of you are understandably anxious about your health, the economic impact of this pandemic and all of the consequences of social isolation.

We also recognize that many of you are anxious about how the coronavirus is impacting the Court systems, our firm and your cases. Although all of our offices are closed, our firm has remained fully operational and we have initiated procedures that allow all of our attorneys and staff to work remotely from their homes. Each of us and our staff will respond to any emails and calls about your cases as quickly as possible.

Our Federal and State Courts have instituted significant changes in their calendars as a result of the coronavirus. Although most courthouses are closed to the public, and Hearings and Trials will be delayed for some time, there are matters that can proceed telephonically and by video. Despite these changes in the Court calendars, we are working diligently on your cases and are determined to do whatever we possibly can to assure an early and just recovery for you and your loved ones. Even under these difficult circumstances, we believe that "Nobody will work harder for you than we will."

With regard to new potential clients, we are not in a position to have an in-person new client meeting, but we will be conducting these initial meetings via phone. New potential clients should call us for a free telephone consultation at (570) 287-3000.
