Getting to Know Lindsay Camandona
We are proud to announce that Lindsay Camandona has been named partner as of January 1, 2020. We sat down with Lindsay to learn more about her.
What makes you a great family law attorney?
I am a strong advocate for my clients while maintaining my professional integrity by being someone who is always well-prepared, respectful, and reasonable when interacting with the bench and bar.
I do not hesitate to take calculated risks for clients, which sometimes require me to think outside the box.
I use resources available to me to strategize and negotiate from a position of knowledge. I know the answers to tough questions in advance and can use that to achieve better results for my clients.
Name three words that describe you.
Empathetic, outgoing, intense.
As a new partner, how do you pay it forward?
I have taken on the role of a mentor to younger attorneys, paralegals, document clerks and other staff. I am invested in growing a stronger team within the firm and am generous with my knowledge and experience.
What do you like best about your work?
I like my colleagues and the ability to collaborate with them. I have made some of my best friends working at McKinley Irvin and they truly keep me going each day.
Finish this sentence: On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me...
Watching cartoons on Netflix with my son, followed by meeting co-workers to run and train for our next race…unless it’s raining. I don’t like running in the rain.
What’s a fun fact about you that people might not know?
After my junior year of high school at Stadium, they filmed the movie, “10 Things I Hate About You” onsite. I was selected as a “core extra,” and spent the summer being paid to hang out with my friends, eat snacks, and be in a movie!
