WALDEN, NY – The law firm of Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP (J&G) is pleased to announce that Kelly A. Pressler, Partner concentrating in general, commercial, and municipal litigation, was recognized by Super Lawyers as a 2020 Upstate New York Rising Star.
Kelly received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2006 from Siena College in Loudonville, New York. Kelly received her Juris Doctor degree in 2009 from Albany Law. She is admitted to practice in the State of New York as well as the Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts of the State of New York. She is also admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Kelly serves as a director for the Boards of Fearless! Hudson Valley, Inc. and Leadership Orange. She is President of the Women’s Bar Association of Orange and Sullivan Counties.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Super Lawyers selects the Rising Stars list using the same selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, then go through the Rising Stars selection process. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
Kelly resides in Montgomery with her husband and their four young children.
Ms. Pressler is the recipient of the 2016 Outstanding New Lawyer Award, as presented by the Women’s Bar Association of Orange and Sullivan Counties, and was named a 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 Upstate New York Rising Star by Super Lawyers.
“On behalf of all the partners and myself, we are truly proud of Kelly for receiving this distinguished recognition,” said Michele Babcock, managing partner.
