Comments

  • “Lyndsay was admitted to the Illinois state bar in 2005 and since then has tried many personal injury cases to verdict and has obtained millions of dollars in settlements on behalf of her clients. In 2010, Lyndsay obtained a six-figure jury verdict in a premises liability case in Dupage County - a notoriously defense-oriented county. In 2008, Lyndsay and James M. Harman obtained a $925,000.00 verdict in Cook County on behalf of an injured construction worker. To date, Lyndsay has tried cases in Cook, Kane, Dupage, Will, McHenry, Lake counties and the Federal Court of the Northern District of Illinois. In addition to being a top notch trial lawyer, Lyndsay is also a wonderful and dynamic person. She is fantastic to work with and I refer her all of my medical malpractice cases. Her professionalism sets her apart from other attorneys. She is a deserving recipient of Illinois Super Lawyers' attention.”
