After graduation, she remained at the DA’s Office as a Prosecutor where she gained experience in Juvenile Dependency and Delinquency Law as well as Adult Criminal Law. She worked for the DA’s Office for nearly 7 years total and then transitioned her legal practice to Family Law. Lindsay recently moved to Colorado Springs where she desires to continue the practice of Family Law and expand into Federal practice.

She has experience representing parties in matters involving divorce, paternity, custody, child support, modifications, adoptions, protection orders, etc. Lindsay recognizes that the situations of each client can vary, requiring a unique approach to their specific needs. Her prior legal experience allows her to bring a specific skill set and knowledge to high-conflict divorce or custody cases where DHS or pending criminal charges are factors to be considered.
