Highest Recommendations
After a severed relationship with another attorney, Lindsay stepped right in and took the reigns with my case. She set clear expectations and the communication I received from her and her team was refreshing in comparison to the experience with my prior counsel. After our initial consultation, I was impressed by how well Lindsay had studied the history of my case. I felt like she had experienced the timeline of events with me and I was never worried about her missing important details. I appreciate that she spent time preparing me for each appearance in court and maintained a professional appearance and demeanor. Lindsay was ready for any obstacles that came in our direction from opposing counsel and I felt confident with her representing me and my children. I would highly recommend her services!

An Absolute Professional
Lindsay has been my attorney since we enlisted her services when we purchased our house in 2015. She also represented me in a domestic relations case when I found out I had a teenage daughter from a past relationship. She represented me in support hearings and was extremely influential it mitigating a possitive outcome. She is always my only recommendation for family and real estate law.

Highly Knowledgeable, Thorough, Determined and Committed - A True Advocate
Ms. Maclay has represented my husband and I for many, many years regarding a custodial situation and though the road has been long and frustrating at times, she has done - and continues to do - absolutely everything she can to bring our concerns to light in a professional, legal fashion both on paper and in the courtroom. She is highly qualified and her background and education in law clearly display themselves in her ability to meticulously prepare documents and gather information for legal proceedings. She is thorough; she truly covers all of the necessary bases when representing. She is direct, determined and confident in all of the right ways. Though as a client, it is imperative to be transparent, she believes in us and more importantly, truly cares for the child involved. Even at times we were discouraged, she was able to help us see the situation in a light that we were unable to see and present further avenues for consideration. It often takes perseverance when working through the types of cases that Ms. Maclay represents, but I can guarantee you that she will stick with you every step of the way and do absolutely everything possible to advocate for you in whatever situation it may be.

Guardian Angel
She has helped me and my daughter through so many difficult times and I dont honestly know where we would be today if she never helped us. She always goes above and beyond what is expected and she genuinely cares about everyone she works for. I will be forever grateful for her.

Wonderful work, amazing person!
I can't say enough positive things about how my case was handled! Thorough, professional, punctual, and heartfelt with every aspect along the way.

Wonderful divorce attorney
I really can’t say enough good things about Lindsay. Even when going through a transition from one firm to another she did it completely seamlessly and I never had to wait longer than 24 hours for a response. Not only was Attorney Maclay incredibly professional, but she is extremely empathetic and kind. Never once did I question her judgement or worry I wasn’t getting the best service. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Lindsay to anyone looking for solid legal advice and or representation. She went above and beyond and I can’t thank her enough!

Dedicated and caring representation!
I first hired Attorney Maclay in early 2003 to handle my custody case. Our case has lasted for years, not due to issues with my lawyer, but issues with my ex. Attorney Maclay and the rest of the law firm have stood by our side through all of our ups and downs. From the beginning, she has been very straight forward to me about how the processes would work, our chances of succeeding, and which battles to fight verses which battles to concede to. In the darkest times of my frustration with the system, her ability to keep a calm and collected environment allowed me to refocus on what I needed to do to ensure my child came home with as little issues as possible. Through the eight years that Attorney Maclay has handled my case, she has believed in her work. She has believed in the case. She has believed in the better life we sought for my child. Through her dedication to my family, she has become a part of our family; something you may not find in many attorneys. You will be hard pressed to find another attorney who dedicates their time to each and every case the way Attorney Maclay does. “The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.” - Henry The Sixth, Part 2 Act 4, scene 2

If you need legal advice I suggest you call Lindsay Gingrich Maclay
Divorce is a traumatic time for anyone. Lindsay's professionalism and knowledge of the law and its application to my specific situation were crucial to my ability concentrate on the facts and not my emotions. My case was handled quickly and efficiently, allowing me to get on with the business of living. I appreciated her consideration of my time and resources and would call her in a minute if the need arose.

Top Notch Attorney!
Attorney Maclay is honest and straightforward. Many times during my case I contacted her about details written in the Custody Stipulation. She always told me her opinion and helped me make the best decisions my children - even if they weren't what I originally thought. I respect the fact that she was willing to point out both sides/choices even if one choice wasn't "in my favor". I would recommend her (and I already have many times) to anyone!!!

Choose another lawyer!!
I hired Lindsay during a difficult emotional time and she did not perform as expected. My retainer was spent quickly and nothing was gained and the case did not move forward in terms of the divorce. Also, the "counselor" she referred for handling child issues was a disaster. During child custody hearing she did perform well, which seemed to be more of her expertise.

Keep looking
Hired her dor a divorce in 2014 and it drug on and on. She seemed intimidated by opposing council and did not work to move things along. Tried to convince me I needed to keep her on after the divorce was final.
Response from Lindsay Maclay July 23, 2019
It is unfortunate that this client did not choose to contact me to discuss their concerns. Divorce is a slow process governed mostly by the speed at which the other side will allow things to move forward (if they do not want the divorce - at that time, the Divorce Code did not allow the Divorce to proceed until 2 years had elapsed if one party wanted the divorce and the other did not) and the 2-year mark was only the starting point. Moreover, once a divorce is final, an attorney remains counsel of record unless the client signs to be self-represented going forward. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this client's concerns.
