Lindsay completed her articles at the firm under Alexander Pringle, Q.C., after clerking with the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton. Her time at the Court gave her an opportunity to assist a number of the Justices of the Court with legal research in a variety of areas of law. Since being at the firm, Lindsay has been able to assist in the preparation of appeals before the Court of Queen’s Bench and the Court of Appeal and trials in both provincial court and the Court of Queen’s Bench.

While in law school, Lindsay was heavily involved with Student Legal Services, an organization of law students that provides legal assistance to low income individuals in the Edmonton area. She was Coordinator of the Criminal Law Project of Student Legal Services and now serves as member of the organization’s Board of Directors.
