Biography

Lindsay M. Harris is the owner and managing member of Harris Law & Co. She leads our succession planners in protecting every family and business we serve using forward-thinking solutions derived from exceptional experience. Whether it is creating wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, or advanced business plans such as family limited partnerships, limited liability companies, or corporations, Lindsay’s passion is to ensure that every family and business is protected when life changing events occur.

Lindsay has seen first-hand the legal challenges businesses face. From family farms, professional practices, to small and large companies, Lindsay is a resource and partner that helps guide you through every step of your journey to ensure that every action helps promote the overall health of the business. Whether it is setting up a new business, selling a business, or daily business tasks, corporate work requires a common-sense perspective led by an experienced attorney.

Lindsay maintains over 61 hours of continued legal education in the areas of estate and business planning each year. She graduated summa cum laude with her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Spanish from the University of South Dakota and with High Honors from the University of South Dakota School of Law. Outside of the office, Lindsay can be found on the tee box, ski hill, or in front of her art easel. She enjoys spending Saturday mornings having coffee with her grandparents and playing with her nieces and nephews. Lindsay also enjoys giving back to her community. She currently serves on the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and Fund Development Committee for Habitat for Humanity (& yes, they even let her swing a hammer every now and again!).
