Jul 6, 2021

Lisa M. Gallaudet, who has been an attorney at the law firm Belkin Burden Goldman LLP since 2010, passed away on June 17, 2021 at the age of 42 after a courageous battle with leukemia.

Over her decade long career with the Firm, Lisa cemented a reputation as trusted advisor to some of the top New York City real estate clients and was the lead trial counsel in the Firm’s Loft Law Practice. She was recognized as a Super Lawyer, Rising Star, and founding member of Community for Improving Residential Conversions of Lofts.

Lisa M. Gallaudet grew up in Brick Township New Jersey before moving to Brooklyn about 20 years ago. She graduated from Seton Hall University in 2001 and earned her Juris Doctor from Villanova University in 2004. Lisa’s legal career preceding her tenure at BBG included positions in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and as an attorney in the New York City Law Department. She was a member of the American Bar Association and the New York County Lawyers Association.

Outside of the office, Lisa was an avid runner, a talented photographer, a world traveler, and she loved music and surfing. She also actively supported Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), where she represented minor unaccompanied immigrants on a pro bono basis. In 2019, Lisa was recognized as KIND Pro Bono Attorney of the Year. Additionally, she lectured at the New York Multi-Family Summit and has taught Continuing Legal Education courses on New York Loft Law.

Lisa was an exceptional person, a beloved friend and colleague, and an invaluable attorney who will be profoundly missed. Lisa is survived by her parents, Kenneth and Patricia Gallaudet; two brothers, Keith and Dan; her sister-in-law, Amy; nephews, Tristan and Chase; and nieces, Abbey, Gillian and Maura.

In lieu of gifts, the family kindly asks to send donations in her memory to Kids in Need of Defense or The Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Foundation.
