I would never never recommend Lindsey to anyone. She definitely dropped the ball on a lawsuit I filed against a car dealership. At first she seemed very knowledgeable however she was horrible at keeping me informed and updating me on the status of my case. Because of her I did not win my case. I lost my case simply because I did not have a copy of my phone records. I would have never thought the judge would have asked for these, but she should have known what they were going to look for. The judge was definitely ruling in my favor however I did not have the phone records I needed. In the judge's own words, he told the other party that they were lucky I did not have those papers because they would have been paying me $50,000.00 in punitive damages. After being severly depressed bc of everything i was going through I called her to see if the judge would give us time to get the records. The judge gave us 30 days to get the phone records. After trying myself retrieve them from tmobile they said they needed a subpoena. After trying to contact her several times she said she would call and never did. Shebwas in vacation the last week I had left to get the records and she never called me back.... she is very unprofessional and lacks drive. She even called me one time asking if i ever paid her for services when i came to visit. She made me send her a copy bc she did not beleive me. I have not given uo on my case although this was almost 3 years ago. She seemed stumped in the court room as if she had nothing to say, i was embarrassed I hired such a young un professional attorney. Do not recommend her AT ALL!

I found Ms. Erwin to be thorough in her initial consultation with us. Her insight was accurate and the court proceedings went according to the way she outlined and our custody case was successfully handled. The process was not long and drawn out . Good Job. Pleased with her overall services.

Lindsey did a FANTASTIC job for us. She was very knowledgable and had a good rapport with the Judge. She did for us what our other attorney couldn't do. I have recommended her to several friends who have used her and they got great results also. You know, some people will give a bad review just because they didn't ultimatly get the judgment they wanted at the end, but that's ok....because I know a lot of people who think Lindsay is a great attorney and I will continue to refer business her way.

Lindsay was an associate for a GA law firm that no longer works with her. We were "forced" into using her since she was the only staff attorney that would do litigation cases in Alabama. My instincts told me she never quite understood what we did or the true nature of the dispute transaction. Like most younger attorneys, they are book smart but lack court presence, court instincts, and personal connections. Further, it was a bit disheartening to find that she used MY notes as her case presentation to the judge. Her follow-up was generally poor and she basically told us she didn't really care if she won or lost and she didn't seem competitive enough to try to win. That was a big red flag we stupidly ignored. We would have been willing to settle the case had she been resourceful enough and the insights to work this out. She did a terrible job prepping us to testify, bring up objections in court, and never quite connected with the issues. Ultimately, we had to interview several attorneys and then hire another one to pick up the remains of the case but the damage had already been done. She left the GA law firm with bad blood. And the partners were nice enough to work out something with us for the shoddy service. I have limited my complaint to this AVVO review but may ultimately report her to the Alabama State Bar. They probably won't do anything but it will sit on her record as warning to other clients or employers whom may hire her. I have the paperwork to report her but have not yet followed through. I know her last employer is interested in seeing a copy if I ever follow through with it. Do yourself a favor, interview several attorneys even if you have to pay a minimal consultation fee as we did. It was well worth it and something we should have done ourselves. Go hire an attorney that is seasoned, a fighter, competitive, and has real connections, street smarts, and good instincts. This one seems oblivious to a world beyond the legal textbook.
