It has been quite a journey for Lindsey as she was “born and raised in south Detroit” ….. actually, Lindsey was born and raised in a small farm town in southeast Detroit. Lindsey has deep Michigan roots. Her mother is an accountant, and her father is a farmer, both in Michigan. She received an athletic scholarship to play volleyball at a Michigan college before transferring to Western Michigan University. Lindsey stayed in Michigan for law school graduating from Michigan State University.
Lindsey is driven by a desire to help people. Lindsey took a position as a legal assistant at a family law office after college. It wasn’t long into her new position that she witnessed the significant toll on clients going through domestic matters and the importance of having competent legal representation throughout that process. It was then that her career goals solidified: if her assistance could provide even the smallest bit of comfort and confidence in such a stressful and uncertain time in someone’s life, she needed to be a part of that.
During law school, she was a member of the Women’s Law Caucus and worked at Eve, a women’s shelter, in Lansing, Michigan where she helped survivors of domestic violence obtain personal protection orders and assisted with divorce and custody related issues. Lindsey also participated in many outreach activities that focused on the legal needs of Michigan families and children, and ultimately earned a Child and Family Advocacy Certificate at MSU.
After completing her second year of law school, she received an internship in Austin, Texas working in estate planning at a private wealth management firm that turned into a full-time position upon graduation. Her experience in wealth management allows her to help clients have a clear understanding of the financial aspects related to divorce and dividing household finances.
As a recent transplant to Charlotte, Lindsey has loved exploring the area with her dog-child, Bane. Bane is a 2-year-old Dalmatian who loves chasing rocks, eating socks, and hikes. Lindsey likes to read (mysteries with a dramatic court case, of course) and play volleyball.
