Meet Lindsey Cheek
Meet Lindsey Cheek A Pitbull for the People
Lindsey Cheek is not a politician. She is a Louisiana lawyer who spends her days fighting for the people of Louisiana. As an advocate, she first gained notoriety when she took the bad actors responsible for “cancer alley” to court – and won. These days, Lindsey litigates on behalf of everyday folks who have been affected by corporate greed, unfathomable inequities, and environmental tragedies. She works on behalf of women and workers who have developed cancer through no fault of their own. She is a protector – a Pitbull for the People.
A Family Leader
As the oldest of five children, Lindsey honed her leadership skills from a young age, mastering the art of making the most out of limited resources. Her upbringing in a modest household instilled the importance of family unity, a core value she continues to champion.
In 2015, Lindsey founded The Cheek Law Firm LLC, with the help of her sister. The Cheek Sisters have profound faith in each other and treat clients like family. Lindsey’s leadership has propelled the firm to new heights, earning recognition in the local community and on a national scale.
