Allison and Lindsey join the more than 20 fellows Friday, Eldredge & Clark attorneys who have graduated from the program since its inception.

She also regularly defends employers in claims of discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, and wage-and-hour violations before federal and state courts and administrative agencies.
