Mrs. Lindauer has worked full time since completing high school and continued to do so, having put herself through college. She first attended Manatee Community College, earning an Associates of Science in Legal Assisting and an Associates of Arts in General Studies. She then graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree majoring in finance and minoring in Psychology. She wanted to be an attorney for as long as she can remember and was dedicated to the field of personal injury since first being introduced to it working in a law firm before law school. Before and during law school, she worked in the personal injury field for eight years where she gained invaluable experience learning all the details of handling injury claims.
Mrs. Lindauer is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law. She attended the part-time program at Stetson so that she could hold full time employment while attaining her law degree. While at Stetson, she participated in the Public Defender Clinical Program of Pinellas County. During this time, she defended juvenile offenders up to and through trial. Coming from a family with strong law enforcement ties, she chose this criminal defense clinic so that she could have a full understanding of the defense perspective. From it, she gained a connection to children involved in the legal system and earned the William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award with most of her volunteer work done mentoring teens in the legal field. She also studied law overseas traveling to Spain, Gibraltar, Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands. She was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2007.
She is a past president of the Young Lawyers Division of the Manatee County Bar and served on the board of the Manatee County Bar Association. She also served one year as both Treasurer and Vice President of the Young Lawyers Division. During her tenure as an officer with the Young Lawyers Division of the Manatee County Bar, she participated in Wills for Heroes, Team Up for Teachers and the building and funding of our courthouse’s Child Waiting Room.
Mrs. Lindauer is admitted to the Florida Bar and concentrates her practice in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death. She has a superb 10.0 rating on AVVO. She is a member of the Florida Justice Association. She is passionate about protecting the rights of her clients and those who may feel helpless navigating the legal system.
Mrs. Lindauer is a Florida native, born and raised in Bradenton. She is married to Manatee County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Scott Lindauer. They have two sons, Dylan and Ashton.

She continued shooting while her first son was young but now with two young boys, competitive shooting has been tabled for the time being. Her new favorite hobby is anything that means family time.
Ms. Lindauer’s family has learned the struggles and joys that come with disabilities on a personal level. As such, she is also passionate about supporting the disability community and those organizations that love and support people affected by disabilities. Injuries are disabling and Mrs. Lindauer understands the life changing effect this has on people and their loved ones.
