Lindsay Allan-McConchie was elected to the Bar in 2020 and joined Chambers under the pupillage program.
Under the mentorship of some of the State’s most accomplished senior barristers at Chambers, Lindsay specialises in criminal practice and personal injuries.
Lindsay commenced her legal career under the supervision and guidance of two of Darwin’s most prominent Queens Counsellors, as well as a former Magistrate of the Northern Territory. Having assisted in one of the Territory’s most prominent murder trials, DPP v Deacon, and through its appeal, as well as other major jury trials in the Territory, Lindsay offers well established problem solving, research and analytical skills.
Lindsay has since worked for Legal Aid in both the Northern Territory and Victoria offering duty lawyer services and restraining order advocacy. Lindsay spent the year prior to joining the bar in personal injuries litigation at a national firm where she specialised in public liability, workers’ compensation and victims of crime compensation.
Known for her ability to be a persuasive and passionate advocate, Lindsay takes on all matters with a fierce commitment to legal ethics and a robust justice system.
