Lindsey Imbrogno defends physicians, nurses, hospitals, and other healthcare providers in medical malpractice cases and Delaware Medical Board credentialing cases. Most of her time is spent defending matters involving catastrophic injuries and death. Lindsey's undergraduate education in physiology and neurobiology and years of experience doing this work enable her to understand the medical concepts necessary to defend even the most complex medical negligence suits. 

Lindsey takes great pride in advocating for Delaware’s healthcare community.  She very much views the practice of law as a service industry and strives to provide excellent client service through thoughtful communication of the practical and legal aspects of issues affecting healthcare clients. She uses her background in the sciences to speak their language and her approachable nature and positivity to develop trusting relationships.

In addition, Lindsey defends insurance companies in bad faith lawsuits. She has also handled numerous §1983 cases in Federal Court and she has handled appeals before the Delaware Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the Third Circuit. Her passion for writing, especially written advocacy, enables her to be effective in this work.

Outside of work, Lindsey is a mom to 3 boys and 3 doodle dogs at the self-proclaimed “Fun House”.  She loves to cook, bake, and entertain and believes that there is always room for one more seat at the table.  She was affectionately named the “Doctor of Cupcakes” by the Dean at her law school graduation and the “Head Mom” of her social circle.
