HUDSON VALLEY PERSONAL INJURY AND ACCIDENT ATTORNEY LINDSEY M. GOLDSTEIN EARNS DIRECTOR SEAT ON THE BOARD OF MID-HUDSON WOMEN’S BAR ASSOCIATION
Poughkeepsie, New York…..Goldstein and Goldstein LLP, Attorneys and Counselors at Law, announced today that Lindsey M. Goldstein, Esq., partner and attorney at the firm, has earned a seat on the Board of the Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association as Director of Social Media/Website. She was installed during the June 12th dinner event in Milton, where the Honorable Sara McGinty of Ulster County Surrogate Court was keynote speaker.
“It’s a great privilege to have this opportunity, particularly as women develop a stronger presence in the legal industry and tackle critically important issues of social justice,” said Goldstein. “My hope is that together, my colleagues and I can collectively inspire the younger generation to become fierce advocates for women and, if they feel this might be their path, to pursue their own aspirations in law as well.”
Goldstein’s areas of practice include nursing home litigation and personal injury and accident law; she is admitted to the New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania Bars, as well as the U.S. District Court of New Jersey.
A graduate of Rutgers School of Law-Camden (2007), the attorney has been the recipient of the Don D’Agui Memorial Award for demonstrating excellence in the law of Torts, as well as the Top 40 Under 40 Award. Her professional background includes work with a New Jersey Superior Court judge and a small firm in New Jersey before she returned home to Poughkeepsie to join her father in his practice and forming Goldstein & Goldstein, Esqs.
According to its website, The Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association, whose membership includes Dutchess, Ulster, Putnam, Columbia, and Greene Counties, is a Chapter of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, which is dedicated to “making life better for all women in society by advocating for equality and fair treatment of women.” The website additionally notes that “the Association has long been in the forefront of changing laws in the areas of domestic violence, in achieving equity in marital dissolution, in achieving fairness in custody decisions, in the initiative against crimes of sexual violence and in the initiative against sexual discrimination in employment.”
“These are the types of issues that make me want to do more every single day,” said Goldstein. “And to serve my home region makes my work extra-meaningful.”
Goldstein has served the community in a variety of ways, including as a Board member of the Junior League of Poughkeepsie and Mid-Hudson Addiction Recovery Center, the Mediation Center of Dutchess County (where she was Chair of the Anti-Bullying Walkathon), former president of the Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association, and an Advisory Committee member for the American Cancer Society Birthday Bash.
