About Lindsay

Learn Lindsay’s areas of practice.

I practice law with the belief that my clients can achieve the best solutions for reconfiguring their families, when they have the help of attorneys and other professionals who empower them during their difficult family crisis. I encourage my clients to ask many questions and educate themselves on possible outcomes for their families.

I bring a unique background to family law in that I began my training as a child and family advocate when I obtained my master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan. Throughout the social work program and thereafter I counseled children and their families using my training in “love and logic” and other solution-focused techniques in dealing with family issues, i.e. divorce, substance abuse, delinquency. I elected to move forward to obtain my law degree from Cleveland Marshall College of Law in order to use my skill as a social worker to become an effective advocate for people undergoing a divorce, children and their families.

I have experience working in Washtenaw, Livingston, Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb Counties. I have been trained to litigate volatile divorce actions, but have found that mediation is the appropriate forum for resolving family issues. I continue to believe that mediation allows for individuals to come to a resolution that is best suited for their unique personal and familial goals.
