Criminal Defense, Education (General and Special Education), and Disability Rights
Lindsay earned her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2006 and her Juris Doctorate from Pepperdine University School of Law in 2011.
From 2012-2014, Lindsay was an Associate at Woodsmall Law Group, a firm dedicated to representing individuals with disabilities. During her time there, Lindsay gained extensive experience in the administrative hearing process, both as a participating team member and running her own hearings. Much of Lindsay’s work involved negotiating complex settlement agreements with various governmental entities, including school districts, the County Office of Education, and the California Department of Education. Lindsay prides herself on her ability to truly listen to her client’s needs and reach fair and favorable settlements agreements. In 2013, Lindsay co-authored the School Advocacy Toolkit, published nationally by Autism Speaks.
Upon earning her J.D., Lindsay worked in the Major Crimes division of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. There, Lindsay was exposed to various aspects of criminal law, from the initial process of investigating a potential case to drafting motions to participating in several trials. During her time at the DA’s office, Lindsay was involved in several high-profile cases and had the opportunity to work directly with victims, witnesses, and defendants. This experience afforded Lindsay the opportunity to work directly with many individuals who have faced life-long discrimination due to their socio-economic background, and this experience furthered her interest in pursuing a career in criminal defense.
Lindsay devoted much of her time in law school and thereafter to working for Lallande Law PLC, a civil law firm where she drafted motions, briefs, participated in discovery, and trial preparation.
During the summer of 2009, Lindsay interned for the Garden of Hope, a non-profit organization located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, that provides services to children who have been victims, or at risk of becoming victims, of human trafficking.
In her free time, Lindsay enjoys traveling, reading, spending time with family and friends, and watching movies.
