Patient, Thorough, Considerate, and Compassionate
Every other law organization and practice had rejected me. I was at the end of my rope when I finally followed a referral from a personal friend to Lindsee Acton Scherich. My husband had asked for a divorce and left me to deal with it. I was extremely low income and trying to get on my feet again while also trying to finish my senior year of college. Lindsee actively listened to my situation with genuine interest. She helped me with the divorce paperwork for a very reasonable fee, and stuck with me as I navigated an uncooperative spouse for 18 months. My court date was just a few days after the holidays. I was elated and thankful that Lindsee was attentive to my last-minute questions and responded promptly. Were it not for her advice and compassion, I could not have navigated this process on my own. I cannot recommend her enough. Her professionalism and sense of humor have saved me through this divorce and eased my mind as I move forward.

Lindsee Acton speaks from both sides of her mouth. Her advice was horrible and she often contradicted bad advice with different bad advice. In the end, I fired her after she exclaimed in a hearing how much she loved opposing counsel. The orders she prepared were inaccurate, using "and" when "or" should have been used. Sloppy work. Too busy. She seemed to forget who her client was. I hired her to eliminate the drama while every step she took only created unbearable additional drama. I decided I couldn't afford to pay for her mistakes and lack of concern for my family's outcomes.

I decided to ignore the reviews about Lindsee because she was so personable during the initial consultation. Unfortunately, my experience has mirrored so many others. She claimed to understand domestic violence and narcissistic abuse but failed to advocate for me when I needed it the most. Besides being unreachable the majority of the time, Lindsee also failed to adequately prepare for trial and practically forced a settlement. She told me I wasn't in a good position and would lose. I do believe that is true but due mostly to her lack of communication and preparation. When pressed on the issue, she threatened to withdraw. We were 3 days before trial. I agreed to the settlement and she stayed on my case until confronted with another issue. Now, she has submitted her withdrawal.

Terrible
Im not going to detail every complaint I had, in the end I would just say the same as the other poor reviews. Lots of excuses, no communication. I got my retainer refunded and found someone who actually wanted a client and is actively working on my divorce.

Horrible
Presented herself as someone who would fight for me in court. Took my money, failed to do her job as my representation. Now I am forced to look for a new attorney almost a year after I struggled to get my self in a position to leave. Worthless attorney do not use her or her firm. Doesn't return calls. The list goes on and on and on.

Worst experience!
I hired this lawyer because she promised me the best outcome of my case but sadly that was only her trying to get me to hire her. She has no experience, no preparation to go to court, she always forgets what I constantly wanted her to fight for, she lost several of my documents, and I could go on... My case got really complicated due to her luck of knowledge and the other party’s attorney was attacking hard so what happened is that she had no other option but to try to get me to accept everything that the other party was asking for and get it over with, she told me I was going to lose my case either way if there was a trial, I was devastated and broke but I never agreed to anything of what they were asking for so after 1 year and a half of paying her and paying her money for doing pretty much nothing good for my process she withdrew the case with the excuse she had a baby. I do NOT recommend this lawyer at all.

Family Attorney | Dec 07
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have opposed Lindsee in several cases and I have found her to be knowledgeable and passionate about her client's cases. As an opposing lawyer, I am happy when I see Lindsee on the other side because I know she is someone that I can work with to resolve issues for our clients in an expedite and professional manner. As a former social worker, she has knowledge about issues that other Family Law attorneys do not."
Family Attorney | Oct 23
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Lindsee for many years and she has the most upstanding character and work ethic. She is extremely passionate about what she does and it shows when you interact with her. She is very honest and open, so as her client, you can trust that she is doing everything in your best interest. She is also very intelligent and is the person that other lawyers reach out to for advice on their own cases. She knows what she's doing and anyone would be lucky to have her as their attorney."
