Biography

Jeff Lindy

Mr. Lindy is a former federal and state prosecutor who concentrates his practice in criminal defense, commercial litigation, and civil rights matters.

Since 1995, Mr. Lindy and his staff have provided clients with the high quality of representation normally associated with a large firm, but with the personal attention and affordability expected from a small firm. Mr. Lindy's individual and corporate clients benefit from his many years of experience as a trial lawyer, his involvement in numerous professional and community organizations, and his academic background.

After graduation from law school, Mr. Lindy served as an Assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn, New York, and then as an Assistant United States Attorney in the prestigious Philadelphia U.S. Attorney's Office. His prosecutorial background makes him particularly effective as he defends the rights of his clients who have been accused of committing white-collar crimes and engaging in political corruption, health care and insurance fraud, and other complex financial crimes, as well as more traditional state-court crimes such as DUI, domestic disturbances, substance abuse offenses, and other serious felonies. His many awards and honors demonstrates that he is highly regarded in his community and profession. Mr. Lindy has been a leader on numerous boards, committees and organizations, and has been particularly active with the 14,000-member Philadelphia Bar Association, where he was elected Chair of the Board of Governors.

Mr. Lindy's familiarity and ease in the courtroom, as well as his negotiation skills honed in countless boardrooms, provide his clients with the comfort level they need as he resolves their problems, whether of a criminal or civil nature. Mr. Lindy and his staff work tirelessly to get the best results in some of the most difficult circumstances, while minimizing the impact of his clients' cases on their business and personal affairs.
