He has lectured on misdemeanor and felony criminal procedure to Mohave County victim/witness advocates on a yearly basis. He's also made presentations on behalf of the Mohave County Bar Association and Mohave County Committee on judicial education and training, and has taught preliminary hearings during the orientation of new judges. Lambert is a merit badge counselor and committee member of a local Boy Scout troop in Kingman. He also serves as vice president of the Old Timer's Museum Board, and is heavily involved in volunteer projects through his church.
He's also served as a member of the Kingman Rotary Club, the Mohave County Domestic Violence Board and the Mohave County Child Fatality Review Board.
