Joshua Voltaire Lindsey

About me

Prior to forming Lindsey + Amonette, PLLC, Joshua practiced law at nationally-recognized law firms in Houston, Texas, and in Nashville, Tennessee.  Moving to Nashville in 2003 for his wife’s medical fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Joshua practiced law in the labor and employment division at Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, PLLC, and then as an attorney in both the litigation and corporate divisions at Bass Berry & Sims PLC.

When one of Joshua’s own family member was adversely affected by a very difficult divorce in Middle Tennessee, Joshua followed a calling to apply the client-centered approach to the practice of law that he had learned at large law firms to the arena of family law in Middle Tennessee, founding Lindsey + Amonette, PLLC in 2010 to assist clients better in their times of need.  It’s the best professional decision he has ever made.

Born in Houston, Texas, Joshua was graduated from St. John’s School in 1990 and then from Sewanee: The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, in 1994.  At Sewanee, Joshua received his B.A. magna cum laude in Religion and was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa honor societies.  From Sewanee, Joshua attended Tulane University School of Law in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he received his J.D. cum laude in 1997 and was a member of the Phi Delta Phi honor society.

Joshua and his wife, Elizabeth, have made Nashville their permanent home and cannot imagine living anywhere else.  They are active members of Westminster Presbyterian Church and have three children.

  • Caroline Gobbell Beauchamp

    Joshua is an excellent attorney. His reputation for integrity enables him to strongly advocate for his clients while avoiding much of the acrimony most commonly associated with divorce and post-divorce cases. I would recommend Joshua, without hesitation, to anyone seeking divorce or post-divorce counsel, and particularly to individuals with cases involving complicated assets and financial matters.
