Nashville Collaborative Practice and Family Law Attorney
“Mr. Lindsey was everything I could have asked for in a lawyer during a very difficult divorce. He was not only professional but was kind and showed so much care during my case. He returned calls and emails promptly and was always there to walk me through anything that I didn’t understand. I was so impressed and can not say enough good things about him and his services. I would HIGHLY recommend his services. THANK YOU JOSHUA LINDSEY!” –Client
“It is without hesitation that I recommend Joshua to anyone needing family legal counsel. From start to finish, Joshua was MY advocate. His ethics are impeccable, he has the highest standard of character, and he never lost the ‘human’ aspect of a very difficult situation. I appreciated his patience with me as well as his firm guidance despite my initial resistance. Most of all, I appreciate Joshua as a man of honor, and a caring one at that. He has served my family well, and he will do the same for yours.” –Client
“Joshua Lindsey handled my case with compassion and professionalism from day one. He is intelligent, but down to earth, and exudes a comforting confidence about the legal process. … He also had a terrific response rate when I needed to reach him, and asked repeatedly about me and my children; clearly we were more than ‘just a case’ to him. Joshua is terrific, and I recommend him without reservation.” –Client
“Joshua Lindsey is both a professional yet caring lawyer. … He cared about me, my divorce, my son and worked hard to get the best for me and my child. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lawyer. Joshua is the perfect lawyer if you are looking for someone that will not only fight for you and your rights, but actually cares about you while you are working with him.” –Client
“Divorce is something I’ve watched my friends do, watched on TV, seen in magazines and the common thread is how UGLY divorce is. My case was very different from what I have seen and I believe that has everything to do with Joshua Lindsey. He dictated the mood of the entire room: always calm, always kind, always listening…. Don’t misunderstand me, he wasn’t passive. When things got a little heated, he was ready to own the room again in a different way. I felt like we were in control the entire time; I felt like he was on my side 100%; I felt like he was practical and the reason that I don’t HATE my ex husband; he’s the reason why to this day my custody situation is perfect (for me and my ex); he’s really the reason I’m still sane. I started out with a litigated divorce and I can honestly say: I would not be nearly as far along in the healing process and I would have WAY less money. If you want to subtract some years from your life, I say a litigated divorce is like smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. Divorce is hard and sad, but Joshua Lindsey made mine bearable and helped me through every step of the way. I fully support the collaborative process.” –Client
ARDENT DEDICATION TO CLIENTS
As exemplified in the testimonials above, Joshua truly cares about each and every one of his clients and never attempts to fit a “round client” into a “square hole.” He listens closely to each client’s unique goals and priorities, and then he applies his extensive legal expertise and ardent compassion to each client’s individual situation to try to achieve the very best results possible for that specific client. He is available, caring, and straight-forward at every step of your process.
Just because you are going through a divorce or post-divorce matter does not mean your daily work and family obligations get put on hold. Understanding that his clients must balance their difficult family law matters with their own work and personal schedules, Joshua strives to be flexible in scheduling times and locations to meet his clients, often meeting clients at their offices, at their homes, or anywhere that is comfortable and convenient for them.
DEDICATION TO EFFICIENT DISPUTE RESOLUTION
While there are certain cases that simply cannot be resolved amicably due to circumstances that are out of our control, in most instances Joshua is able to work with his clients and opposing counsel to successful resolve family law matters without court intervention through negotiation with opposing counsel, through mediation, or through the collaborative divorce process. In these instances, Joshua’s client’s have far greater control over the outcomes of their disputes than they would allowing a judge to decide their issues in a courtroom.
Joshua is well trained and experienced in the practice of collaborative family law, a client-centered approach to divorce and other family law matters that relies on respectful, team-based problem solving to reach mutually-beneficial and durable agreements for parties. He is a sustaining member of the Middle Tennessee Collaborative Alliance (“MTCA”), Nashville’s and Middle Tennessee’s practice group for the collaborative divorce process, where he is an officer on the board of directors. Joshua is also an active member of the International Academy of Collaborative Practitioners (“IACP”).
Joshua has successfully advocated for many clients within the collaborative divorce process model, and he is dedicated to the practice of collaborative divorce whenever appropriate for his clients.
