Attorney and Counselor at Law
Lindsay was born in Iowa and, except for a short stint in California as a child, she grew up in Waterloo Iowa. While in high school, she spent a month in France living with a French family, an experience that proved to be only the first of many foreign travel adventures for Lindsay.
She is an honors graduate of the University of Northern Iowa where she received a BA in History and Political Science and was one of only two recipients of the Leland-Sage Scholarship for History. During college, Lindsay spent a semester abroad studying at the University of Wales at Swansea, and still enjoys continuing friendships with the international students she encountered during that time. In addition to her time in Wales, she has traveled extensively in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Monaco, Poland, and Austria. Lindsay’s love of adventure found a challenging outlet while she was in Switzerland where she went canyoning – which combines free fall, repelling, and sliding down waterfalls.
She is a graduate of the University of Denver School of Law. During her second year of law school, Lindsay went to Thailand where she taught English to Cambodian children, sang at a Thai mountain orphanage, and traveled to a Lahu village near Chang Mai where they had never encountered blonde hair before. Her Thai adventure also included riding an elephant (not in a chair, but around its head like a trainer) and parasailing off the coast of Phuket. While in law school, Lindsay served as a student attorney for a non-profit organization, The Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, where she was a guardian Ad Litem for over two years, as well as being a participating member of P.I.L.G. (Public Interest Law Group). She was also involved with an organization named H.E.A.R. (Helping to Empower through Alternative Resolutions) that taught mediation to high school students.
Lindsay was attracted to the legal profession because she believed that it suited her strengths – writing, acting, debating, and that she would enjoy the challenges of advocacy and litigation. She likes the practice of law because it challenges her mentally and every day brings a new challenge. She particularly enjoys landlord/tenant law because it is fast-paced, never boring and resolutions to cases can come quickly. This area of the law allows her to combine writing, advocacy in court, teaching fair housing workshops, and daily interaction with clients.
