I am writing in support of Lisa Rubinstein becoming the next Family Court Judge in Dutchess County.
I have known Lisa personally and professionally for more than 20 years.
As a former court attorney working in the courts of this county for many years, I had the pleasure of having Lisa appear before me when she was in private practice and always found her to be a dedicated and ethical advocate for her clients.
More recently, I was fortunate to serve along with her in Family Court where I witnessed her abilities firsthand.
She was consistently fair and empathetic and demonstrated an ability to listen and weigh all sides of very complicated and often emotionally charged issues.
I urge the voters of Dutchess County to look beyond party lines and elect the most qualified candidate to this critically important position.
