Lindsey Vanden Eykel



Lindsey is a passionate advocate for her clients and has a high aptitude for understanding the complex details of her cases and developing creative solutions. She has successfully handled high net-worth estates and high-profile clients, sometimes involving cross-over legal issues related to trust, bankruptcy and criminal law. She understands the emotional aspect of family law matters and seeks to empower her clients to reclaim control over their own destinies. Lindsey has represented clients across various professional backgrounds, including professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, dentists and real estate investors and developers. She also specializes in drafting premarital and post-marital agreements, representing grandparents in custody cases related to their grandchildren and developing creative solutions to paternity and termination cases.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Lindsey was an International Elite Gymnast and a member of the US National Team for three years. As a two-time National Champion, she represented the USA in numerous competitions all over the world. Thereafter, she not only competed for UCLA but was also the team’s undergraduate assistant coach and a member of the UCLA Bruin Athletic Council.

Notwithstanding her athletic success — academic success has always been her main focus. In high school, she was elected secretary of both her Student Council and National Honor Society, and ultimately graduated valedictorian of her class. Thereafter, Lindsey attended UCLA and became a recipient of UCLA’s Golden Paw Award for academic and athletic excellence. Continuing in her academic success, she was a member of the Order of the Barristers and excelled in Baylor Law School’s Dawson & Sodd, P.C., Moot Court Competition where she and her teammate won best first-year team and second-place team overall, thereby showcasing their appellate advocacy skills. As a result of this competition, Lindsey was chosen to compete in the Harold & Joyce Green National Security Law Competition in Washington, D.C.

Currently, Lindsey is a member of the Dallas Bar Association and the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. With regards to her long-term goals, Lindsey admires and respects her father, Ike Vanden Eykel, and hopes to follow in his footsteps as a valued and highly regarded member of the Texas law community.
