2018 – Lindsay was the lead attorney in our client’s extreme stalking and harassment case (United States of America v. David Waldman). The offender stalked our client for four years after she’d ended their four-month relationship. Lindsay’s expert guidance and collaboration with the Department of Justice led to Waldman’s arrest in June 2018. He pled guilty to one count of cyberstalking on August 22, 2018.

Lin pled guilty to 25 counts offenses related to his campaign of terror. He was sentenced to 17 ½ years, the longest sentence in US history for somebody whose principle crime was cyberstalking.
