Poughkeepsie, New York……Partners of McCabe and Mack LLP, based in Poughkeepsie, New York, announced today that Lisa M. Singh gained admission to the New York Bar Association at a virtual ceremony last week.
Singh, a native Newburgh resident, and commercial litigation attorney graduated from Mount Saint Mary College in 2016 (B.S. Magna Cum Laude) and New York Law School in 2020 (J.D.). Her focus areas at McCabe and Mack include assisting businesses and individuals in litigation disputes pertaining to breach of contract, partnership/joint venture, business torts, breach of fiduciary duty allegations, and shareholder issues.
As the daughter of two immigrants (her father of Punjabi descent and her mother of Spanish descent), the attorney says her childhood shaped her path.
Said Singh, “I’m the oldest of three children, and my parents always relied on me to translate important documents and correspondence since their English was not very strong. Growing up, I liked supporting them in this way. I eventually realized that pursuing a career in law would allow me to continue to serve as a translator and advocate for people – maybe not from a language standpoint, but in the sense that I could help clients understand statutes and could represent their needs.”
McCabe and Mack LLP Partner Kimberly Hunt Lee noted, “We are very fortunate to have Lisa as part of our team. She cares deeply about her clients and the work she does on their behalf. This is an exciting milestone in her professional journey, and we look forward to seeing her continued success as the years go on.”
Singh grew up working in her family’s Orange County businesses. While at New York Law School, she gained experience and applied her corporate law studies via externships with an international corporate tax law firm, and JAMS Mediation, Arbitration, and A.D.R. Services, where she served as a judicial clerk under the Hon. Alan Hurkin-Torres (Ret.).
“As a female person of color who’s a first-generation lawyer, I think it’s important to send the message that you can make your dreams come true if you persist. People like me don’t always have the same advantages, and often face hurdles. But if you have a vision for what you want and you keep working toward that goal, it will eventually happen. Anything is possible, no matter what challenges you face,” reflected Singh.
