Alexander H. Lindsay, Jr. (Al) grew up in the Freeport/Butler area, north of Pittsburgh. He attended the Freeport Area Schools and graduated from high school at the Academy of the New Church in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania in 1964. Al graduated as a History major from Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, PA in 1968. He was a 1971 graduate of Pitt Law School. Al returned to Pitt Law School in 1992 as an adjunct professor, teaching Trial Advocacy to law students. In 1972 Al became the first full time Assistant District Attorney in the history of Butler County. His most significant work as an Assistant District attorney in Butler Count was to investigate and prosecute public corruption. In August 1975, Al was appointed as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, under U.S. Attorney Richard Thornburg, a position he held until July 1980. The vast majority of the cases prosecuted by Al as an Assistant United State Attorney dealt with public corruption and white collar crime. From September 1977 until July 1980, he served as supervisor of all public corruption investigations and prosecutions by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania. In July 1980, Al left the United States Attorney’s office and entered the private practice of law in Butler, PA, where his main office is located today. Much of Al’s experience as a private attorney has been in the field of criminal defense and civil litigation, in both Federal and State courts. He was involved in the defense of numerous high profile criminal cases, the most prominent of which was the defense of a Brentwood Police Officer, John Vojtas, who was originally charged with murder, as a result of the death of Johnny Gammage on October 12, 1995. After a highly publicized jury trial the Defendant, John Vojtas, was acquitted of all charges. Al has received a number of awards in the course of his career, including a Special Achievement Award from Attorney General Griffin B. Bell, on March 6, 1978, and a Commendation from William Webster, Director of the F.B.I.
