J.P. Senich

JP Senich is a Western Pennsylvania native and a Fox Chapel Area High School graduate. After high school, JP majored in criminology with a minor in psychology at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton, Florida.

After graduating from FAU, JP returned to Pittsburgh to pursue his Juris Doctorate at Duquesne University Law School.

Upon completion of law school, JP passed the Pennsylvania Bar Exam and clerked for Administrative Law Judge John Lewis at the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission. JP drafted opinions for Judge Lewis and managed cases around the country in his tenure at FMSHRC.

At the conclusion of his clerkship, JP established his own law firm, Senich and Welsh, LLC focusing on civil litigation and estate law. One of his cases provided JP the opportunity to argue before the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.

While he enjoyed operating his own firm, an opportunity at the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General became available and JP accepted the position as a Deputy Attorney General (DAG) in the civil litigation section.

As a DAG, JP managed a large case load defending Commonwealth agencies, such as the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, in both Federal and Common Pleas Courts. The Office of Attorney General proved to be both rewarding and challenging, and JP gained experience as a trial attorney on several Federal jury trials.

Through his work as a DAG, JP had the good fortune of meeting attorney Alexander H. Lindsay, Jr. JP accepted a position at Attorney Lindsay’s firm and has been an associate ever since.

At The Lindsay Law Firm, JP focuses on civil rights issues, criminal defense, and estate law. He especially enjoys trying jury and bench trials in both Federal and Common Pleas Courts.
