About Lindsey

Learn Lindsey’s areas of practice.

AT EASTERLING FAMILY LAW, WE TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO PROVIDING LEGAL SERVICES. WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE LEGAL SERVICES THAT RECOGNIZE THE UNIQUENESS OF EACH CLIENT, INCLUDING THEIR VALUES, EMOTIONS, AND UNIQUE FAMILY DYNAMICS. WHEN POSSIBLE, WE HELP CLIENTS TO ACHIEVE A NON-LITIGATED RESOLUTION.

I experienced my parent’s awful divorce when I was a child, and I saw how it negatively affected both of my parents, my siblings, and I. Because of that experience I wanted to practice family law. The first five years of my practice was almost solely divorce and custody litigation. Again, I saw the legal battle and inner battles that my clients and their families were going through; the most concerning part was how awful these battles were for the kids. This is not a process or experience I would wish on anyone.

When I opened Easterling Law in Charlotte I wanted to focus on a different approach to family law cases for my clients. The law is always a focus in our cases, but the law is the lowest standard of conduct. We can do better for families in creating resolutions that fit their specific needs. It is my hope that processes like Collaborative Law can help family’s transition from the title of Husband and Wife while remaining Mom and Dad forever.

Couldn’t ask for a better attorney!
Working with Lindsey during a very unfamiliar difficult time was smooth as can be, under the circumstances. Lindsey was always straightforward and honest with me about my journey making me feel she never wasted my time. She had great communication, suburb professionalism, supportive, and empathic. What I value most of the whole experience working with Lindsey was that she made me feel she always had my children's wellbeing in her mindset. I even referred a friend to Lindsey. If you are looking for a compassionate, straight to the point attorney, you would not be disappointed with Lindsey as your Lawyer.

Divorced But Still a Family
Divorce is always challenging. Lindsey did an excellent job of helping our family to navigate our way through, setting a consistent tone of respect, dignity, and fairness, as well as keeping sight of long terms goals, so that both sides could come back to the table to focus on our roles as parents. Lindsey and all her staff are knowledgeable, supportive, and reliable.

Lindsey and her team are phenomenal!
Lindsey has tirelessly worked on my case since December of 2018. What initially seemed like a relatively simple absolute divorce turned into a highly contentious case that involved mediated financial settlement and a court hearing for child custody. Lindsey is passionate about what she does, and I always felt as though she genuinely cared about my case. The amount of time and effort she put in to create the best possible outcome far exceeded my expectations. She was always friendly, helpful, and communicative, and that meant a lot. In addition to being friendly though, Lindsey is great at what she does. Faced with what seemed like an incredibly uphill battle to gain custody of my son, Lindsey put together a court case that resulted in me getting primary custody of my son. Lindsey tirelessly worked on my case to allow this result to happen. I can't recommend Lindsey highly enough to anyone else that may find themselves working through a divorce, child custody, or financial settlement. I think the thing that stood out the most to me was that Lindsey personally involves herself in seeing your case through to the best possible outcome, never once did I feel as though this is simply a business transaction for her, and that always meant a lot. It's also worth noting that the staff Lindsey has assembled is unbelievably professional as well. With all the paperwork and intricacies of my case, never was a deadline missed, or paperwork lost. Everything was organized and well put together, and I always felt included in what was happening on a regular basis. Do yourself a favor and hire Lindsey if you are considering a Family Law Attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Lindsay to transfer a custody order I had pertaining to my son from California to NC. She walked me through the process and was always quick to respond to any inquiries I had or status updates. I highly recommend Lindsey to handle your case as you will find a very knowledgeable, caring attorney who will get the job done right and let you know where you stand throughout the whole process. Thank you Lindsey!!! Respectfully, Chris C.

The Right Attorney for Me
Lindsey was the right fit for me. We wanted an amicable divorce, but most importantly I wanted to be sure that I knew what all of my options were. Lindsey was professional, dependable, and thoughtful. I came out the other end confident in knowing that I had made well informed decisions for my family.
Response from Lindsey Easterling October 23, 2017

Lindsey really helped me understand the process every step of the way. She negotiated a settlement outside of court which saved my family money and helped us transition to amicable co-parents. I really felt like she cared for my families needs.

I found Lindsey during our search for a collaborative divorce lawyer. It was important for us to have an amicable separation and stay out of court. She exceeded our expectations with her specialized training and positive attitude. I would highly recommend her for your family law needs.

Lindsey truly cares about me & my family. She consistently does all she can for us with her vast legal knowledge & huge heart
From the moment I first met Lindsey, I knew that she would do everything she could to help protect my little girl. She showed me how the laws would actually help with my rights as a mother, & took me from being a scared & doubtful parent, to being a more confident & more fully prepared advocate for both me & my daughter. Before I met Lindsey, I couldn't imagine this painful time ending positively or with the best interest of my daughter being listened to &/or agreed upon. Lindsay provided not only moral support through it all, but also provided strength to me through emails & articles pertaining to my particular situation. She took time to truly listen & to truly understand every detail of my case. Most of all, Lindsey gave me hope. She gave me clarity & was a calming influence through every step of my fight to protect my daughter. I truly can not thank her enough for all that she has done for me & my family.
