POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Even as a little girl, Poughkeepsie attorney Lindsey Goldstein had an innate sense that her future included a career in law.

Goldstein, 34, not only runs a personal injury practice with her dad, Paul, but is also the president of the Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association. She recently sat down for a chat with Marybeth Cale, her publicist and a community advisor for Daily Voice.

Here is Cale’s interview:

Cale: What inspired you to become an attorney?

Goldstein: I was about five when I realized the impact my father had on the lives of others; he used his profession as a vehicle to help people -- I was drawn to that concept. I remember drawing a picture of myself as the attorney general. Over time, I became fascinated by the Constitution, American history, and how our legal system developed.

Cale: What do you love most about law?

Goldstein: I love working with my dad and with so many different people. Law is this big machine, but it’s so nice to work with the moving parts, navigate the system, and get to know everyone involved -- judges, lawyers, and clients. Naturally, every day has its challenges too. No two days are the same. Each case is unique -- but I love building relationships with clients, and moving things forward.

Cale: As President of the Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association, tell me about that group.

Goldstein: The organization draws women from several counties, and sets out to promote success for female attorneys and professionals. It gives us a collective voice to address statewide issues and to work for greater justice. It’s also a place to discuss issues, challenges, and the overall industry landscape. The group is especially relevant to 21st century women who face increasing pressures to “do it all” -- to be high-powered working moms who are present to their careers and to their families and communities.
