Lindsay Dofelmier Having called Texas, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah home, Lindsay has been on the front lines of the ongoing battle over land use and conservation in the West for her entire life.

Prior to joining Defenders’ Denver office in 2017, Lindsay clerked for the Honorable Melinda Harmon in the Southern District of Texas. Lindsay received a B.A. in Japanese and a B.A. in International Studies, cum laude, from the University of Washington in 2003. Lindsay graduated with honors from the University of Texas School of Law in 2015 and is a member of the Order of the Coif. She is a member of the Texas bar and is admitted to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
