Lindsay Tygart comes from a family that loves the law. Her dad was an attorney and mediator, her uncle a judge and her two brothers are attorneys. Lindsay is admitted to The Florida Bar and licensed to practice in state and federal courts in Florida including the United States District Court for the Northern, Southern, and Middle Districts of Florida.

A big Tarheel fan, Lindsay is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She received her law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law where she served as the President of the Mock Trial Team. She competed as an advocate on both the State and National levels.  In 2006, she received the Barbara McCalla Award for her pro bono efforts in seeking justice for those who are less fortunate.

Lindsay began her legal career working at the Office of the Public Defender here in Jacksonville, where she was able to enhance her litigation and trial skills. She then began working in private practice with Murphy & Anderson, P.A., where she handled complex commercial, products liability and personal injury cases. Lindsay soon realized that her passion was in helping injured people and their families, so she began working at Edwards & Ragatz, P.A. in 2012. Here, she handles a variety of cases involving medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, disability, products liability and motor vehicle accidents.

Lindsay is extremely active in the Jacksonville and Florida Bar Associations. She serves as one of three Fourth Judicial Circuit delegates on the Florida Bar’s Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors and is currently serving as the President of the Young Lawyers Section of the Jacksonville Bar Association. Lindsay is a Barrister in the Chester Bedell Inn of Courts, serves on the Alumni Board at Florida Coastal and is a Past-President of the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association.

Lindsay is also actively involved in the Jacksonville community, helping organizations like Dreams Come True, Sanctuary on 8th Street, Family Support Services, Catholic Charities, No More Homeless Pets and the Labrador Rescue of Northeast Florida.

In her own words, Lindsay has learned to never take any of God’s blessings for granted, whether it is having a job, supportive friends and family or food on the table. Lindsay has always tried to be gracious and thankful and that one person can make a difference in someone else’s life.

In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys traveling, watching Carolina Basketball, and spending time with her husband, daughter, Salem Grace, and their two black Labradors, Mia and Molly May.
