Lindsay N. Brown is a Denver, Colorado, attorney and a Shareholder at Meilstrup & Brown and 2nd-Chair. For nearly fourteen years, she has been effectively and diligently defending the rights of students and those accused of criminal offenses in state and federal court. She capably challenges all kinds of criminal charges, including drug distribution, juvenile offenses, murder, burglary, sexual harassment and violence, drug offenses, assault, white collar crimes and more.

Since 2015, Lindsay has developed a special focus representing students in a variety of academic and other disciplinary proceedings. She is a state-wide expert in Title IX defense, and regularly represents Respondents and Complainant students in those proceedings. She also represents secondary, post-secondary, and graduate students in disciplinary proceedings and other education-related matters. She is routinely asked to speak to other attorneys about Title IX.

After completing her Bachelor of Science at Pepperdine University, Ms. Brown attended the University of Colorado Law School to pursue her legal education. She received her Juris Doctor in 2009 and became qualified to practice law in Colorado the same year. 

As a trial attorney with nearly fourteen years of experience, Ms. Brown has represented hundreds of individuals facing Title IX proceedings, allegations of sexual assault, suspension or expulsion from school and those facing a variety of criminal accusations. She also gained invaluable insight into the criminal justice system by partnering with two esteemed Colorado law firms for nearly ten years. Over her career, she has tried more than 50 cases to verdict. She regularly represents students in Title IX and other grievance proceedings in the university setting. She also drafts state and federal appeals, critical motions, and civil rights complaints against the government.

Ms. Brown has found ways to give back to her community. She volunteers her time to provide pro bono legal services, and served as a board member at the Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association, a nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado, providing education, resources and support to people with Down syndrome. She is an active member of the Rhone Brackett Inn of Court, the Denver Bar Association, the Women's White Collar Defense Association, and the Colorado Bar Association.

As a result of Ms. Brown’s exceptional trial skills, she's been named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list since 2017, and The National Trial Lawyers selected her for inclusion in the Top 40 Under 40 attorneys list for several years in a row.
