Lindsay’s practice is devoted exclusively to plaintiffs’ personal injury and wrongful death cases, including motor vehicle collisions, occupiers’ liability, products liability, medical negligence, and disability benefits claims.

Lindsay regularly appears at the Superior Court of Justice and the License Appeal Tribunal. Lindsay has been co-counsel on a precedent-setting arbitration to restore denied benefits and on a precedent-setting motion to have a fraudulent conveyance action proceed concurrently with a personal injury action.

She is also asked to speak at a variety of conferences geared towards health care professionals in Ontario.
