Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington Welcomes Tricia S. Lindsay and Olivier Roche

Tricia S. Lindsay and Olivier Roche have joined The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington as its new Associates.

Raised in the Bronx, New York, Ms. Lindsay is accustomed to hard work and working for the interest of the people. A former schoolteacher for 24 years in the Yonkers and New York City public school districts, Ms. Lindsay has worked passionately to improve the lives of her students. Always going beyond the call of duty, she worked with underserved families in her district to ensure that her students and their families were receiving adequate social services that they deserved. Her experiences during her long career in education has fueled her desire to impact education on the national level to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline by changing existing legislation.

Thirteen of her twenty-four years as an educator have been in an urban school setting. During that time, Ms. Lindsay realized that the educational system did not ensure the success of Latino and African-American children; their schools are underfunded and overcrowded, leading to under-education. This background has ignited her desire to assist African-American and Latino children, by providing educational opportunities that otherwise would not have been made available to them. Those experiences have also given Ms. Lindsay the first-hand knowledge that is necessary for accurately identifying the problems and the sources of those problems in our education system, while effectively contributing to the solution.

In direct line with contributing to solving the problems in our educational system, for nearly five years, Ms. Lindsay has been the Chairperson for the Scribe’s Institute Inc., a non-profit organization fully dedicated to reducing the achievement gap in minority children and disenfranchised people through a forthright approach to strengthening literacy skills. Ms. Lindsay has avid experience as both a teacher and an administrator. The experience gained in both fields of education has made her an effective asset in helping to shape education for minority children.

Ms. Lindsay is admitted to the Bars of the states of Connecticut and New York. She has also been an adjunct professor at Mercy College Graduate School of Education in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and is a member of the George W. Crawford Black Bar Association, and The Alexander Hamilton Inn of Courts.

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from New York University, a Master of Arts in Secondary Science Education from The City University of New York, a Master of Science with distinction in School Building Leadership from Mercy College, and a Juris Doctor from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center. She received many distinctions during her college career, such as The Susan Marie Dietrich Clyne Scholarship, The Sheila and Stuart Salkin Educator Scholarship, the Touro Law School Commuter Scholarship, the CALI Award for Academic Excellence in Administrative Law, and the Touro Law Center’s Pro Bono Service Award.

As a proud graduate of Touro Law Center, Ms. Lindsay intends to provide a voice, advocacy, and legal representation for those who often go unheard. Ms. Lindsay’s longtime passion has been centered on community building. When she entered the field of education more than twenty years ago, she then believed that the most effective way to bring justice to the masses was through education. Since entering the field of law, she now wholeheartedly believes that justice will best be served in the court of law. Ms. Lindsay is intent on becoming the best litigator in the United States, being an active part of the process and the solution.


Mr. Roche began his legal career with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and was assigned to the District Court Bureau. He has prosecuted an array of misdemeanor offenses ranging from driving while intoxicated (DWI) to larcenies and drug offenses. He was quickly promoted to the Felony Division, where he prosecuted both felony and misdemeanor offenses. Additionally, he conducted grand jury presentations, interviewed and advised police officers, victims and witnesses in regard to case evaluation and assessment and took numerous cases to verdict. He has also conducted numerous hearings and trials and has directly managed over thousands of criminal cases. He has extensive experience in interpreting and applying laws, court decisions and other legal authorities.

A zealous advocate, Mr. Roche will not give up on any case. In a recent firearm possession case, where the district attorney was staunchly seeking to incarcerate the defendant, Mr. Roche’s strong research and preparation skills enabled him to successfully make arguments that ultimately dismissed the charge and avoided incarceration and any criminal conviction.

Mr. Roche is admitted to the Bar of New York and is admitted to practice before the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He has been a member of the New York State Bar Association, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the New York Public Defender’s Association and the Suffolk County Bar Association. He is also an associate of the Council on Legal Education Opportunities (a Thurgood Marshall program).

He earned his Juris Doctor from Hofstra University School of Law in 2009. At Hofstra, he participated in the E. Woycik Jr. Intensive Trial Techniques Program, which is in association with the National Institute of Trial Attorneys. Mr. Roche was a finalist in the Mock Trial Team Competition and received a three-year merit scholarship. He graduated magna cum laude with degrees in both Criminal Justice and African-American Studies at Temple University in Pennsylvania. He was recognized on the Dean’s List, the National Dean’s List and Golden Key International Honor Society. He graduated from St. Francis Preparatory High School with honors and was recognized as a “Who’s Who Among American High School Students.”
