Lindseyâ€™s record jury verdict in ultra-conservative Shelby County for a worker fired because of his workersâ€™ compensation claim quadrupled the prior high verdict for that county in that type of case.
Growing up in Hueytown, a suburb of Birmingham, Lindsey knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a lawyer. This desire came from being around her uncle, also a Birmingham lawyer. At the age of seven, she told her parents she would go to law school one day. Lindsey worked for her uncle during her summary vacations while at college, and became more determined to make her dream of becoming a lawyer come true. Lindsey and her husband Hunter live in Fairhope and stay busy enjoying life with their 6-year-old son, Sawyer.
Lindsey was also selected to be a member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Societyâ€™s MS Leadership Class of 2016, committing her time and effort to the Societyâ€™s mission: creating a world free of MS.
