Above and beyond to find the decades-old records for us
My wife contacted Lindsay for some estate planning concerning her parents. Lindsay discovered that there was some discrepancy in the city records stating back decades. She and her team went above and beyond to find the source documents and square everything away for us. Thank you and well done.

Lindsay is whip-smart and so much fun!
Lindsay was my closing attorney for my first home purchase and she made it so exciting and very fun! I knew I was in good hands. I use her for all my real estate clients and they also adore her. She explains everything thoroughly and in layman's terms and goes to bat for us when needed. Hands down the best!

Lindsay is the BEST
I am a real estate agent that has been working with Lindsay for several years. She makes closings fun, explains documents well and answers questions along the way. She is knowledgeable on all things real estate, and is very familiar with the local real estate contracts. Lindsay is the kind of attorney you want representing you on your end of the deal!

Realtor / Investor
Lindsay has been my preferred Real Estate Attorney for over four years, not only for my own professional reasons, but for my recommendation for all of my clients who I work with as well! Lindsay is an excellent communicator, thoroughly detailed with every transaction handled, and represents her clients to the highest degree! While professional, Lindsay is very grounded and is easily relatable as well. There is no other attorney I would use, or recommend within Virginia to represent me within the Real Estate or family practice realm. Lindsay is a must to consider when seeking legal representation!

HOME TITLE CONSULTATION
As a first time home buyer, I had no experience in any of the homebuying process or the legality of it. Ms. Lindsay did everything in her power to ensure that I was covered in every way possible. She always kept in contact and as soon as she found out new information she did not hesitate to share that information. The rates the firm have for consultations are more than fair for the amount of work she does behind the scenes. I can't thank her enough!
