In 2001, Ms. Lambert was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and beat cancer, while maintaining a high-profile legal practice. Her law partners, business colleagues, husband and children venerate her amazing personal strength and perseverance as her most significant accomplishment.
Ms. Lambert has been a high school mock trial coach for almost twenty years, and her students have won county, regional and state mock trial finals. Most recently, Ms. Lambert coordinated a mock trial program with Owings Mills High School and helped her team place second place in the Maryland State Bar Association's Statewide Mock Trial Competition. Ms. Lambert has also handled pro bono cases for the physically and mentally disadvantaged, the economically struggling, and organizations that promote the public welfare. Her efforts in these two areas led the way for Hodes, Pessin & Katz, P.A. to win the 2005 Pro Bono Service Award.
Ms. Lambert also spearheaded the Women Helping Women Initiative, a joint women's networking effort with Wachovia Bank. The Initiative is open to the public and brings together women from an array of different fields at seminars, workshops, and knowledge sharing events. Its goal is to provide women in business with a strong support system, while aiding various women-oriented charities, such the Maryland Women's Heritage Center. Most recently, Ms. Lambert hit the runway in a “Dressed for Success” themed fashion show that benefited My Sister's Place, a shelter for homeless women and children administered by Catholic Charities. In October, Ms. Lambert will be co-hosting a seminar with guest speaker Melanie Sabelhaus, former Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Association as appointed by President Bush.
