Lindsey assists clients in three main areas of law – Family Law, Trademarks and Litigation. In her family law practice, her primary focus is to help individuals in all walks of life, whether retired and involved in a long-term marriage, or a young couple seeking a divorce, to navigate family law issues including separation, divorce, custody and placement, child support and maintenance. In particular, Lindsey has a great deal of admiration for Military Veterans and has found it very rewarding to assist them in what can sometimes be contentious divorce battles. Her tenacity, intuition and professionalism has been a strength her clients rely upon.
In addition to family law, Lindsey focuses a portion of her practice to assisting the Intellectual Property Group and its clients with trademark prosecution, including preparing and filing trademark applications and office action responses, as well as with trademark infringement. Lindsey also assists in general litigation matters. Utilizing her research, analytical and negotiating skills, she plays a valuable role within DeWitt’s litigation team.
While working pro-bono for victims of crimes, Lindsey was part of a precedential victims’ rights case through the non-profit group, LOTUS (Legal Options for Trafficked and Underserved Survivors), which involved a ground-setting decision by the Crime Victims’ Rights Board (CVRB). The CVRB reviews and investigates complaints filed by victims of crime regarding crime victim rights. The matter involved the first time a victim in Wisconsin has ever had representation at a CVRB and the Board determined that a District Attorney’s office violated a victim’s rights at a sentencing hearing.
Prior to joining the firm, Lindsey completed a two-year clinical in the Milwaukee District Attorney’s office, where she is on the record prosecuting child abuse and neglect cases, felonies, and misdemeanors. She also successfully completed a Guardian ad Litem internship at the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee where she first-chaired and prevailed in a CHIPS trial. While in law school she worked as a legal intern for State Representative Evan Goyke, and a research assistant for the Associate Dean of the Marquette Law School.
“Yesterday was a very long and tough day for us, but you stayed the course throughout the process. Lindsey, you were very professional and cool while being attacked by the other side. You were way more prepared and organized than the opposition and shut them down on many issues. Thank you for having trust in me. Great job! Thank you again.” – July 2017, Divorce Client
