Areas of PracticePersonal Injury, Product Liability, Insurance Denials

From a young age, Lindsay found herself drawn to the practice of law and; specifically, the courtroom. As she watched her grandfather serve as a highly regarded judge in the small town of Taylorville, Illinois, Lindsay grew most interested in those cases involving personal injury. Lindsay’s involvement with legal debate organizations started early and continued through her secondary education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Subsequently, Lindsay’s passion for the law, coupled with her hard work ethic, helped her achieve her dream of graduating from St. Louis University School of Law.

Due to her extensive trial advocacy training throughout her law school career, Lindsay was selected to join one of the premier defense firms in Missouri. Not very long after, however, Lindsay realized that representing insurance companies was not what she wanted to do with her training. Instead, she joined a firm where she was able to protect the injured and their families. Her tireless dedication to her injured clients has led to a $1.3 million dollar award against MoDot, a $2.4 million dollar award in a motorcycle case, and over $20 million dollars in settlements.

In 2009, Lindsay was inducted into The Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an exclusive group of trial attorneys composed of less than 1% of attorneys nationwide. In 2011, Lindsay was honored with both a "Superb" Avvo rating and an "AV Preeminent" rating from Martindale-Hubbell. Lindsay was selected as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for Illinois in 2013 and for Missouri in 2015. In 2014, Lindsay was selected by The National Trial Lawyers’ Top 100 and in 2015, she selected into the National Association of Distinguished Counsel which recognizes the top 1% of practicing attorneys in the county. In 2016, Lindsay graduated from the Gerry Spencer Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming and was also selected again to the Illinois Super Lawyers.

Lindsay’s fight for the injured continues as she devotes 100% of her time and skills to the practice of personal injury law. Lindsay is proud to be a part of a group that treats everyclient like family and every case as if it’s the only case. Each day, Lindsay uses her advocacy skills to ensure that her clients don’t fall victim to corporate greed and bullying. Currently, Lindsay represents those injured in the following types of cases: tractor trailer crashes, car crashes, motorcycle crashes, pedestrian crashes, taxi crashes, bus crashes, bicycle crashes, boat and barge crashes, airplane crashes, slip and falls, premises liability, defective products, dangerous drugs, burns, bad faith, animal attacks and toxic exposure.

Although she loves the practice of law, Lindsay also enjoys life outside of work. She is an avid member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society-Gateway Chapter and serves as an adjunct instructor at Fontbonne University. A mother of two daughters, Lindsay frequently visits the Magic House and the St. Louis Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
