In addition to her law practice, Lindsay is an active participant in various programs with the local pet rescue groups in the Tampa Bay Area, where she works with animal rescue shelters and serves as a foster care-taker for rescued dogs in transition, until they find adoptive homes.

Significant Representative Matters

  • Obtained a defense verdict at trial for an engineering client related to claims surrounding an alleged failed sinkhole repair.  Claims included professional nelgigence for the deisgn of the repair, as well as claims of fraud and nelgigent misrepresentation. 

  • Represented framing contractor in binding arbitration initiated by a general contractor for both direct and consequential damages resulting from the construction of a multi-family building.  Carried representation through issuance of Interim Award by the arbitration panel containing a favorable ruling for the client, which included a finding of waiver of all alleged consequential damages.  The award spurred a reasonable settlement which the general contractor previously was not willing to consider.

  • Defended subcontractors in numerous cases for both direct and third-party claims relating to alleged construction defects, and including both contractual and statutory warranty claims.

  • Defended material manufacturer in direct claim from Condominium Association through the use of a Motion for Summary Judgment, resulting in the Association dropping a majority of the claimed damages and accepting a nominal settlement.

  • Employed the use of detailed damages analysis to limit potential damages alleged against subcontractor, resulting in the plaintiff accepting a minimal settlement.
