Lindsay E. Jasper
Attorney and Counselor at Law
Tschetter Hamrick Sulzer
The majority of Lindsay's childhood was spent in Waterloo, Iowa, except for a short period of time when she lived in California in a house just down the street from the childhood residence of President Richard Nixon. While in high school, she spent a month in France living with a French family, an experience which proved to be only the first of many foreign travel adventures for Lindsay.
She is an honors graduate of the University of Northern Iowa where she received a BA in History and Political Science. During college, Lindsay spent a semester abroad studying at the University of Wales at Swansea, Wales and still enjoys continuing friendships with the international students she encountered during that time. At college, Lindsay was one of only two recipients of the Leland-Sage Scholarship for History. In addition to her time in Wales, she has traveled extensively in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Monaco, Poland, and Austria. Lindsay's love of adventure found a challenging outlet while she was in Switzerland where she went canyoning - which combines free fall, repelling, and sliding down waterfalls.
She is a graduate of the University of Denver School of Law. While attending law school, she was involved with an organization named H.E.A.R. (Helping to Empower through Alternative Resolutions) teaching mediation to high school students. Lindsay also served as a student attorney for a non-profit organization, The Rocky Mountain Children's Law Center, where she was a guardian ad litem for over two years. In addition, she was a participating member of P.T.L.G. (Public Interest Law Group). During her second year of law school, Lindsay went to Thailand where she taught English to Cambodian children, sang at a Thai mountain orphanage, and traveled to a Lahu village near Chang Mai where they had never encountered blonde hair before. Her Thai adventure also included riding an elephant (not in a chair, but around its head like a trainer) and parasailing off the coast of Phuket.
Lindsay went into law because she believed that it suited her strengths - writing, acting, and arguing. Right out of law school, she worked for Larry Posner, the legendary litigator. She likes the practice of law because it challenges her mentally and every day it is a new challenge. She particularly enjoys landlord/tenant law because it is fast-paced and resolutions to cases come quickly. This area of the law allows her to combine writing, court appearances, and daily interaction with clients. Lindsay is looking forward to the opportunities and challenges of taking on more complex and involved cases at Tschetter Hamrick Sulzer.
