Lindsay Waller Aggarwal says she considered other professions a few times. But she enjoyed learning about cases while working in her father’s law office throughout high school and college, and the law kept pulling her back in.

In her first year of law practice, Aggarwal was admitted to practice in Illinois in addition to Missouri. At the Illinois swearing in ceremony, her father — a practicing member of the Illinois bar — stood in support of her admission and briefly “presented” her for her admission in front of all of those in attendance. That moment encapsulated what helped lead her to the practice of law, as well as the support that continues to help her succeed.

She still recalls the job performance review that moved her from a beginner to an experienced attorney.

“My supervising attorney praised me for how I had handled a new task of examining an expert,” she says. “But he noted that he wished I had taken the initiative and actively requested the opportunity. Since then, I have made a point to push myself beyond my comfort zone and actively seek new opportunities to develop new skills.”

What is something about you that would surprise people?

I used to act in community theater, including playing Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

What is your biggest accomplishment this year?

Maintaining a successful practice and dedication to my clients, while also balancing the challenges of the past year and a half. I had a pandemic baby (who is now a pandemic toddler), so it has been a challenge navigating how to be a new parent while practicing law in the complexity of the pandemic. I am proud of how I have navigated this time period with a (mostly) positive attitude.
