Mr. Lamb has been a litigator his entire legal career. In that time, he has successfully represented individuals and businesses of all sizes, including financial institutions, sureties, insurance companies, construction contractors, and leasing companies. He has trial experience as a second chair attorney on multiple jury trials, including a jury trial that resulted in a several hundred thousand dollar award to the firm’s surety client. He has also successfully represented the firm’s clients in numerous arbitrations and mediations.

Prior joining Jennings Haug Cunningham in April 2013, Mr. Lamb represented consumers in claims arising out of various consumer protection laws, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Credit Report Act, and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. This serves as invaluable experience as Mr. Lamb now assists the firm’s business clients in achieving their goals (e.g. enforcing consumer/residential loans and other consumer contracts) while complying with the consumer protection laws. In addition, Mr. Lamb has used this experience to assist businesses in defending lawsuits filed pursuant these consumer protection laws.

Mr. Lamb also has substantive appellate litigation experience. This includes his second chair role in successfully representing the firm’s surety client in the appeal that resulted in the published decision of S & S Paving & Const., Inc. v. Berkley Reg'l Ins. Co., 239 Ariz. 512, 372 P.3d 1036 (App. 2016). In that decision, the Arizona Court of Appeals found that a surety on a payment bond for a public construction project may not be sued for bad faith.

Mr. Lamb is a graduate of the University of Michigan (B.S. in Philosophy, 2004) and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (J.D., Cum Laude, 2011).
