About Ms. Blackman

Ms. Blackman grew up in Essex and, with the exception of one summer waitressing in Hyannis Port, she has always lived and worked in Vermont.  In 1992, Ms. Blackman began her legal career clerking at Eaton & Hayes in Woodstock where she tried her first case with Harold E. Eaton, Jr., now Associate Justice of the Vermont Supreme Court. After a brief stint working for a law firm in Rutland, she moved to East Montpelier where she became a partner at the law firm of Theriault & Joslin. In 2004, while still living in East Montpelier, she joined a small litigation firm in Burlington called Lynn & Associates which, of course, eventually became LLBM. After about a decade commuting up and down Interstate 89, Ms. Blackman moved to South Burlington where she continues to reside today.

In 2015, the Vermont Supreme Court appointed Ms. Blackman to serve on the Vermont Judicial Conduct Board. Ms. Blackman was reappointed in 2018 and served as Chair of the board. On January 1, 2021, the Vermont Supreme Court reappointed Ms. Blackman as Chair.

Admittedly, winter in the northeast holds little appeal for Ms. Blackman, but the remaining seasons make living and working in Vermont worthwhile. When she is not practicing law, you will find Ms.  Blackman on her mountain bike in Stowe, trying out a new recipe with friends and family, or learning how to paddleboard on Lake Champlain.
