Lindsey Wynne joined The Law Office of Michella Melton in 2019. Lindsey attended the University of Texas at Austin for undergraduate, where she was a Texas Excellence Scholar and obtained her Bachelor of Business and a Minor in Spanish. She participated in a wide variety of internships, such as a legislative session intern, working for a news station and assisting with coverage on both of the national conventions, and working for an attorney representing victims of violent crimes in civil and family law matters. She also regularly volunteered in the public school system to help at-risk youth. She pursued her law degree at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, which included studying abroad to study international law and human rights and enrolling in specialty courses such as school law and the death penalty. Lindsey was also a member of the Domestic Violence Clinic at the law school, where she handled complex family law matters for victims of domestic violence.

In 2008, Lindsey began her legal career as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney for Collin County. As a prosecutor in Collin County for nearly 10 years, she worked in the Misdemeanor, Felony, Crimes Against Children, Civil Asset Forfeiture and Mental Commitments, and Juvenile Divisions. She prosecuted a very wide range of offenses ranging from misdemeanors such as a driving while intoxicated and assault family violence, to complex felony offenses, including arson, murder, sexual assaults, intoxication manslaughter, physical and sexual offenses committed against children, and aggravated offenses.  She has tried over 100 jury trials during her career as a prosecutor. Her passion for education and desire to help at-risk youth led her to transition to juvenile prosecution so she could help better educate and assist in the rehabilitation process, so kids have the necessary tools and information to make better life decisions. She continues to volunteer with organizations that educate youth on the dangers of social media and poor decisions, which may result in criminal charges. She has been a featured speaker for state-wide campaigns educating on the dangers of social media and has been a guest speaker and conducted trainings at youth forums, schools, and with law enforcement agencies.

This experience is instrumental in Lindsey's practice of family law and criminal defense. Observing the impact of the home life on a child and how it can impact their future, it is paramount that divorce and child custody issues be handled appropriately and by the right attorney. As a prosecutor and family law attorney, she earned the reputation as an accomplished trial attorney and courtroom advocate by working hard and fighting zealously for the right reasons. With her trial skills and familiarity with the courtroom, Lindsey is prepared for any circumstance or legal battle
