Michael A. Lindstadt


Michael A. Lindstadt, Esq. was raised in West Babylon, New York, where his mother was a waitress and his father was a carpenter. From a young age he worked and had a passion for writing and justice.


Like many of us he endured multiple heartbreaking experiences wherein family members were caused to suffer serious injuries: a grandfather who passed away while receiving a lack of medical attention from a doctor nurses nicknamed, “The Midnight Marauder”, as he purposely visited patients late at night to avoid questions from concerned family members; an uncle involved in an auto collision that resulted in spinal surgery and permanent disability; a grandmother who tripped and fell due to a market owner’s negligence, causing her to suffer a fractured hip, surgery and long rehabilitative treatment; a father forced out of work due to a disabling health condition.


Personal experiences such as these created passions in Michael for justice, finding the truth and protecting the injured.  With determination Michael attended St. John's University, where he earned his Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice and was a member of the National Criminal Justice Honor Society.  Thereafter he was awarded a scholarship to Hofstra University School of Law, and was elected as the student Editor-in-Chief of the Family Court Review, a publication of Blackwell Publishing. In addition he earned judicial internships in both the Federal and New York State Supreme Courts.


Michael began practicing law at Kopff Nardelli & Dopf, LLP, at the time one of Manhattan's premier medical malpractice defense firms, where he represented doctors and hospitals such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Lenox Hill Hospital. Michael worked under the tutelage of well-known trial lawyer Glenn W. Dopf, Esq.  Thereafter Michael expanded his areas of practice to construction law and in 2009 the switch from representing defendant companies, hospitals and municipalities, to representing plaintiffs and everyday people. He then helped oversee the litigation department of a successful plaintiff's personal injury firm in the Bronx, and there developed his presence in the Bronx Community.


In 2012 Michael began his solo career, and in addition to representing his own clients, was retained as trial counsel by other lawyers and law firms. In 2014 Lindstadt Law PLLC opened its office on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, in addition to offices in Bronx, Queens, White Plains and Long Island. In June 2014 Michael was admitted to the Bar of the United States Supreme Court, along with 42 other attorneys from the New York State Bar Association.


Michael prides himself on honesty, loyalty, experience, hard work and care.
