Decorated Dressage Rider Lindsey Saad Joins Dinsmore as Litigation Partner
Dinsmore & Shohl LLP is pleased to announce the arrival of Partner Lindsey Saad to the firm’s Morgantown office. She will practice with Dinsmore’s tort and litigation groups.
To date, her broad practice has focused on long-term care and product liability with an emphasis on pharmaceutical and medical device defense litigation. In Saad’s general litigation practice, she has represented everyone from small business to big box retail clients, and she tailors her approach to fit each client’s needs.
“Some of my clients are super savvy,” she said. “They know exactly what they want. Others have never been through any legal processes before, and they need more hands-on attention. I’m happy to get to the heart of what the client finds important in seeking resolution. I’m a people person and I love to problem-solve. Litigation is a lot like a puzzle. It’s about strategy and being creative to fully satisfy every client.”
Saad spent the first 10 years of her career with Flaherty, Sensabaugh & Bonasso PLLC, where her vast experience with multidistrict litigation positioned her well to handle large, complex cases. Her goal of continuing to build a broad litigation practice, and to expand her trucking litigation work, aimed her career sights toward Dinsmore.
“Coming to Dinsmore was an easy decision, considering the culture and opportunities here,” she said. “Some of my best friends in law work at Dinsmore, and it’s been fantastic to watch how happy and successful they are, and to hear how Dinsmore values people and helps them grow.”
Saad, who has lived her entire life in West Virginia, earned her J.D. from West Virginia College of Law in 2009. Outside the office, she is a competitive dressage rider. Her horse, Ignatius, is ranked fifth in the nation at first level for adult amateurs by the United States Dressage Federation. This past summer, Saad helped organize and then competed in West Virginia’s first-ever USDF recognized dressage competition.
Iggy is Saad’s second horse she has taken through the competitive ranks. She and her husband bought a “fixer-upper farm” this year with pastures and three riding arenas, and she is excited for Iggy to live there instead of being boarded elsewhere.
“I really love horses, and would love for them to be an even bigger part of my life,” she said. “As much as that’s the dream, I have found a job that I love and am also passionate about. I feel pretty lucky.”
