Attorney Al Lindsay, a Dean’s List graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Whittier Law School, is a senior associate with David Yeremian & Associates. Known as a tough but fair civil litigator, Al zealously represents his clients in all aspects of employment law, including class-action lawsuits, collective actions, and representative claims under the California Labor Code, the Fair Labor Standards Act and unfair competition laws.
Al has established long-standing personal relationships with attorneys from other firms and is regarded as a consummate professional because of the time he invests in his clients. Most of his colleagues call him straightforward and decisive – two skills he learned during his ten-year career as an officer in the U.S. Army’s Corps of Engineers. Al is a veteran of Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. His extensive experience commanding soldiers with his boots on the ground taught him valuable leadership, organizational management and planning skills, which he now uses to help his clients get the best possible outcomes.
Outside the courtroom, Al pulls double-duty on the behind-the-scenes legal tasks that help his clients succeed in the courtroom, brainstorms cases with his colleagues, travels and spends time with his family, and takes a little heat for being a Cleveland sports fan.
Al is admitted to practice before all courts in the State of California, the U.S. District Court for the Central, Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts of California, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Al drafted an amicus brief that contributed to the California Supreme Court’s decision in Alvarado v Dart Container Corp. of California, 4 Cal. 5th 542 (2018). Prior to that, he spent time as a Radio West Point DJ, served as the executive editor of the Whittier Law Review and earned the prestigious Scribes Award for one of his law review articles. Al also served as a judicial extern to the Honorable David G. Sills, presiding justice of the California Court of Appeal, 4th District, Division 3.
After clerking full-time for Fulwider Patton in Los Angeles during law school, Al became an attorney with the firm. For the next five years, he was active in the Inns of Court and focused on intellectual property prosecution and litigation, as well as patent infringement. He then moved on to the San Francisco firm of King & Kelleher, frequently appearing in the Central and Northern District of California Courts prosecuting and defending patent infringement actions.
