Nashville Collaborative Divorce and
Family Law Attorney

Ardent Dedication to Clients

As exemplified in the testimonials above, Joshua sincerely cares about each and every one of his clients and never attempts to fit a “round client” into a “square hole.” He listens closely to each client’s unique goals, perspectives, and priorities, and then he applies his extensive legal expertise and ardent compassion to each client’s individual situation to try to achieve the very best results possible for that specific client. He is available, caring, and straight-forward at every step of your process.

Just because you are going through a divorce or post-divorce matter does not mean your daily work and family obligations get put on hold – Joshua regularly represents physicians, doctors, teachers, and professionals who cannot drop their daily obligations to focus on personal matters. Understanding that his clients must balance their difficult family law matters with their own work and personal schedules, Joshua strives to be flexible in scheduling times and locations to meet his clients, often meeting clients at their offices, at their homes, or anywhere that is comfortable and convenient for them.

Dedication to Efficient and Amicable Dispute Resolution

While there are certain cases that simply cannot be resolved amicably due to circumstances that are out of our control, in most instances Joshua is able to work with his clients and opposing counsel to successful resolve family law matters without court intervention through negotiation with opposing counsel, through mediation, or through the collaborative divorce process. In these instances, Joshua’s client’s have far greater control over the outcomes of their disputes than they would allowing a judge to decide their issues in a courtroom.

Collaborative Divorce

Joshua is well trained and experienced in the practice of collaborative family law, a client-centered approach to divorce and other family law matters that relies on respectful, team-based problem solving to reach mutually-beneficial and durable agreements for parties. He is a sustaining member of the Middle Tennessee Collaborative Alliance (“MTCA”), Nashville’s and Middle Tennessee’s practice group for the collaborative divorce process, where he is an officer on the board of directors. Joshua is also an active member of the International Academy of Collaborative Practitioners (“IACP”). Joshua has successfully advocated for many clients within the collaborative divorce process model, and he is dedicated to the practice of collaborative divorce whenever appropriate for his clients.


Joshua is also a mediator who has assisted parties and attorneys in settling the most difficult of divorces and post-divorce issues. Joshua regularly represents his clients at mediation in an attempt to settle difficult cases.


When amicable resolution outside of court intervention is not an option, Joshua and his colleagues at LINDSEY AMONETTE + GLASSFORD, PLLC will take your matter to court to secure the reasonable and equitable result you deserve.

“Joshua was a great advisor during my divorce. He clearly explained the collaborative divorce process, always felt 100% invested in my case even though I know he is busy, and was a strong advocate for my needs and my son’s. I greatly appreciated that Joshua always kept the conversations professional, never reducing it to bashing my now ex-husband. That helped me stick with the task at hand and not let emotions override good decision making. I would absolutely hire Joshua or his firm again.”

“Mr. Lindsey was everything I could have asked for in a lawyer during a very difficult divorce. He was not only professional but was kind and showed so much care during my case. He returned calls and emails promptly and was always there to walk me through anything that I didn’t understand. I was so impressed and can not say enough good things about him and his services. I would HIGHLY recommend his services. THANK YOU JOSHUA LINDSEY!”

“It is without hesitation that I recommend Joshua to anyone needing family legal counsel. From start to finish, Joshua was MY advocate. His ethics are impeccable, he has the highest standard of character, and he never lost the ‘human’ aspect of a very difficult situation. I appreciated his patience with me as well as his firm guidance despite my initial resistance. Most of all, I appreciate Joshua as a man of honor, and a caring one at that. He has served my family well, and he will do the same for yours.”

“Joshua Lindsey handled my case with compassion and professionalism from day one. He is intelligent, but down to earth, and exudes a comforting confidence about the legal process. … He also had a terrific response rate when I needed to reach him, and asked repeatedly about me and my children; clearly, we were more than ‘just a case’ to him. Joshua is terrific, and I recommend him without reservation.”

“Joshua Lindsey is both a professional yet caring lawyer. … He cared about me, my divorce, my son and worked hard to get the best for me and my child. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lawyer. Joshua is the perfect lawyer if you are looking for someone that will not only fight for you and your rights, but actually cares about you while you are working with him.”

“Joshua was the best lawyer I could have possible asked for during such a difficult divorce. Joshua explained my options very thoroughly and ran a smooth collaborative process. Joshua always kept me in the loop and would respond to all my questions promptly. He truly was concerned about my children and creating a parenting plan that would fit all our needs. He was truly a leader during our collaborative meetings and got me everything I asked for. I can not recommend Joshua enough.”
