Wanting her practice of law to have a positive effect on clients, Lindsay
attended law school with the intent of becoming a family law attorney.
As an associate at McKinley Irvin's
Tacoma law office, Lindsay’s calm demeanor and bright intellect give her
(and the clients she works with) the edge in attaining advantageous legal
solutions in stressful situations.
Lindsay understands that each client requires a unique result to his or
her own personal situation. “There are no boilerplate results in
family law,” Lindsay says. “I approach family law cases with
an open mind and learn as much about the client as possible.”
Because a family law case almost always results in major transformations
in a person’s life, Lindsay not only seeks legal solutions for her
clients, but also looks for resources that may help the client adjust
to these changes.
"Practicing family law gives me an opportunity to get to know clients
as individuals," says Lindsay. "I get a chance to learn what
they want for their family, and then use that information to advocate
for them. I like that family law allows me to help people as well as protect
their legal interests."
In addition, Lindsay’s experience working with children allows her
to provide good counsel to clients facing family law issues involving
kids. “I can help identify results that are most appropriate for
a family with young children,” she says. “Helping parents
recognize how their children might react during their family law case
allows us to identify ways to minimize the effects on their children.”
Lindsay is also a committed volunteer, providing family law services helping
children through King County’s Family Law CASA (Court Appointed
Special Advocates) program.
